I'm a backpacker and have stayed at all sorts of hostels - this one falls squarely in the middle of the pack. The dorms are clean and the beds were comfortable, but the common area was pretty cramped without any amenities. The hostel is a good jumping off point for touring, but not great for a long stay as it's... More

This hostel has some benefits: Great location, and very friendly and helpful staff. The other rooms may have been better, but we stayed in the private room for two people and it was not that great for the price. Bathroom was very small and cramped. No blades in the fan, shower did not have consistent hot water, the bed was... More

This is an amazing hostel. I have been traveling for 6 months in Europe and this is a great hostel to add to my list of favorites. It's location is perfect, right in the area of great cafés, shopping, bars and Turkish culture. Not a crazy tourist area which is ideal. The cafe in front of the hostel is absolutely... More

This was one of my best hostels i have ever stay. Tha atmosphere and the location are unbeatable..The staff is friendly and has deep knowledge of the city. I can't forget the coffee aroma of Latife and the picturesque street in front of the hostel. A must stay, definetely!

The major plus of this place is its location. Its located right by the Galata Tower and a short but steep walk away from the Galata Bridge and the Istiklal Street. Also, the staff is very friendly and gives good advice on places to go and also warns about tourist traps. The Wi-Fi coverage is good in the reception area... More

Our experience in this hostel was good. What we valued most was its stuff: nice and very attentive. They help us to get around in the city, the reccomended us places to go and they accomodated every request. The facilities are quite peculiar but the common area is really cozy and we met lots of new and interesting people. Therefore... More

Hostels are usually hit or miss. This one is a hit. So impressed by friendliness of staff-if you go, make sure you go on Gaye's tour of Balat, she is one of the most wonderful and interesting people I have ever met. Made so many friends here, cosy and warm atmosphere. Next time i come back to istanbul will definitely... More

This is long overdue, but I do wish to take the opportunity to share the time I had in early April and the great location for exploration and food. You will probably find a better hostel at a higher price, but lack such a central location. Facilities may be slightly cramped but maintained very clean With an early am arrival... More
