Great hostel with an incredible breakfast. Had wine up on the rooftop terrace at night and watched the ships cruise through the Bosphorus and came up to breakfast one morning wrapped in a blanket. Everything was clean and I never had to wait for a shower/toilet/sink/breakfast. The staff was helpful and friendly with suggestions about how to get places and... More

Traveling Solo. Great hostel to stay at, clean, amazing people staff and fellow travelers and the breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay here again, when in Istanbul. Also, it is very close (5min walk) to the local light rail transit.

Agora is the definition of a good hostel; clean, not that noisy, close to the main attractions, super breakfast, and the best staff I have met in a long time!! They also have some kind of deal with a turish bath (hamam) so they can come and pic you up and take you to the hamam! Just lovely!

The location was great for getting all the attractions. Breakfast is amazing and the staff are very helpful and kind. The stairs are very noisy when somebody is coming down and sometimes bathrooms for dorms not smell very good. However i recommend it.

I stayed at Agora Hostel for about 7 nights. It's in a great location to see all the big sights (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sofia, Grand Bazaar, etc.). It's a little bit of a hike to get to the bridge and to the other side of the city but not unmanageable. The hostel rooms and bathrooms were very clean, and the... More

I only had to stay one night due to a long lay over in Istanbul, but Agora was great. Its located in a nice spot in the city and the staff was very friendly. I was upgraded to a better room with no extra charge because they had extra space and the beds and amenities were very comfortable. The free... More

Stayed on year end of 2014. Clean room and friendly atmosphere. Single room was a bit expensive, but reasonable placement. Easy access to many famous place. You'll meet many Japanese and Korean tourists. Recommend who would like to speak Japanese and Korean.

One of the good hostels in the area. Very well located and a couple minutes walk to Blue Mosque. The hostel is very clean, great service and really good breakfast. A real value for money especially given the fact that it is at a great location.
