I had a great time in Istanbul and staying at Agora. The staff were friendly and helpful (and in some cases hilarious!). The hostel is really clean, very well decorated and the breakfast was really perfect (not to mention sitting out and looking out over the sea while you eat it!). The location is perfect for most of the major... More

My friend and I started our Med. trip in Istanbul. We only stayed at Agora for one night but it was the perfect place and location to start. Agora is less than a 10 minute walk to Aya Sofia/Blue Mosque, and a short tram ride to other sites (Grand Bazaar). We are late 20's backpackers and met some fun people... More

The location is amazing, rooms are very good, and the host BOB helped us with all the tips for sightseeing and stuff. I would highly recommend staying at here! We had an awesome time at Istambul and the setup of the terrace is just lovely.

Helpful, friendly, clean and great value for money. Location excellent for all major sights - a few minutes walking distance. Management was very flexible in meeting particular requirements - so do contact them direct to enquire whether they can meet your needs.
