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

very good location,very near from Istiklal street.. very good service nice people very safe the rooms very small especially double rooms...there is no lockers in it the stairs is tiring, you must ascend 2 floors to find the reception no enough toilets (3 toilets for about 30 persons in the floor).. so you must wait in the queue every morning

We had a double with private bathroom. Sure the room wasn´t the most prettiest and it stink a little (but not too much), but the bed was excellent, i slept so well. The location was perfect and it was easy to go around and staff was friendly and helpful.

If you want to stay cloce to the party and can live with trashiness and are okay with water damage in the ceiling of your room, this place is for you. However, if you value cleanliness, and a noise-free area, this hostel is definitely not for you!

Our driver who picked us up at the airport couldn't find this place. He had to stop for directions a bunch of times. But alas, we finally made it to the hostel! You have to go up a bunch of stairs. The hostel has some interesting decorations and the staff seemed really nice and was very helpful! The people around... More

Certainly not the best hostel we have stayed in. Location is ok easy to find and with in easy walk to all the major tourist spots. Wifi in our room was not the best. Toilet really smelly although clean. Bed comfortable. Not necessarily first choice if I came back to Istanbul.

Stayed 3 nights with my partner at Chillout and then another 1 night on way back after 15 day trip in Turkey. The location is the major advantage of this place. Its just 1 minute walk from Istikal Street and 5 mins from Taksim square. We roamed Istanbul till late evening and could shop / party till late night at... More

Pros: Great location. Common area is good for meeting people. Luggage storage (unsecured, though). Staff tried to be helpful, even if they actually were not. Cons: Security is a bit iffy because the dorm room doors are never locked. While you you do need a code to get inside the hostel itself, there are constantly locals sitting and smoking on... More

As for the hostel at the end of the day it's a place to sleep value for money was excellent staff were friendly and... More

I stayed one night in a single room, which was good value for the small amount of money I paid. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and even offered to me some local food in the morning. The rooms and showers were super clean and everything was good. The reason I rate it average and not more, as it... More
