Second Home is an amazing place to stay. With free breakfast, friendly staff and the awesome roof top this place is worth every Lira! Everything is reasonably priced which includes the laundry and the refreshments they serve. The hostel is in the heart of the old district, so you will save money by just walking to 80% of your attractions.... More

Awesome location, nice and cosy, plenty of options given to you to do around the city, but definitely the best thing about this place is the staff. They are so friendly, always willing to help out or have a chat, and are just genuinely good people :)

The staff at the hostel are great. Hussein in particular! They were helpful, welcoming and lots of fun to hang out with. The location is excellent and the roof terrace was perfect to look out over Istanbul. Would recommend to groups or solo travellers of any age/sex.
