We spent 5 nights at the hostel. The staff is really friendly, great service, free tea and common places to meet and chat with travellers from all around the world. Our lamp didn't work so we even got a new room with our own balcony which was very nice and appreciated! Don't expect to sleep to much though, the walls... More

Our stay took 7 days, double room with external bathroom. Negative: Absolutely disgusting and too less toilets. The hostel has got a capacity for a lot of people that can use the 4 bathrooms. One of the bathrooms was all the time closed, maybe because it was defect. So if you consider that a lot of people use the 3... More

Stayed for 4 nights with 2 friends in a 10-bed mixed dorm. First of all, unbelievably cheap: 25LR a night. Unfortunately, there were only 4 tiny bathrooms for the entire hostel. These were bearable and did provide hot water, but always smelt awful. Most of the furniture in the hostel is, albeit colourful and very edgy, broken, dirty or just... More

This was my second stay at Chillout Cengo. We stayed with my girlfriend 5 days in a private double room. Breakfast, lunch or dinner with a bunch of peoples from all over the world! Chatting and laughing, for our trips, countries, hometowns, politics, food, drinks, movies, books, exchange "words" from our languages. Emre (Trabzon), Juan (Portugal), Shelby and Kevin (USA),...

Guys, if you ever step by in Istanbul and wonder what's the coolest area, that's definitely in Beyoglu, around Taksim square. All kinds of cool bars, mainly awesome half hidden roooftops, and with that interesting local places, not as clean as Sultanahmet area, which would be the most touristic, but at least which has the honor of being honest.

We were a group of more then ten people and the staff were amazing in accomodating us in the same room. It was a bit hard to find the hostel as it is not very visible. There are just 3 bathrooms for the whole 3-floor hostel so when you go to the WC or shower you need to go one... More

We stayed in this hostel with a group of 32 people. When arranging this hostel, the staff was already very helpful and kind, so this gave us the idea that the stay would be great. And it turned out to be great! Very helpful staff, that is even kind enough to arrange things for you in the middle of the... More

Great to stay if you short stay and you want to be close to night life. Not great if you are a non-smoker - this was my biggest heartache with the property, being a non-smoker and smelling the cigarette smoke everywhere. After 24 hours I wanted to run, but as I was on the go for already close to 3... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
