I spent wonderful days in second home hostel! Friday night we had typical Turkish dinner and after we went out for pub crawl, it was a very good and safe way to explore a city by night (especially if you don't know the city well and if you are only women travelling together!). we danced all night on a really...

This was a good value and well placed hostel. The best thing of all was the staff - John, Tuğba, Memo, Mohamed and others made us all feel super welcome and gave good advice. I stayed in a single room on the second floor. It was basic but good - I think it's quite good value for the central location,... More

I loved my time in Istanbul, and it was the staff at the hostel that made it so much fun. They were so funny and helpful and gave us great tips for getting the most out of our time there. They also organised a tour around Turkey for us, which was above and beyond our expectations considering our short timeframe... More

The hostel is clean and the staff is very friendly. The hostel is within walking distance to all the major sights in Sultanahmet and is close to the more fun neighborhood of Taksim. Everyone was very friendly over dinner and as an added bonus there are adorable kittens who live on the bottom floor.

Memo took great effort to organize tours to Bursa and the Prince Islands for me, allowing me to cover parts of Istanbul that previously would not have been... More

Really decent location; just a minute walk from a tramline stop (Gulhane) and only 5-10 minutes on foot to all the main sights like Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Grand Bazaar and Blue Mosque. The staff at the hostel are all helpful and happy to assist. Plenty of information is provided on tours, sights etc. Taxi services to and... More
