It was my first time visiting Istanbul, and I chose this hostel for the convenient location, fair price, and great reviews from other travellers. The description of the direction was a bit tricky but it wasn't that hard to find. It is right beside a travel agency. I stayed in the female dorm-room for 3 nights in mid-May, and I... More

Excellent location, great price with superb Turkish breakfasts on the terrace facing the Bosphorus strait. During the night you can have fun without going out. If you are tired or want to save some money join other guests on the rooftop to drink, play guitar or have a chat. I have met some interesting people over there including the staff... More

Stayed here for 6 nights. Right near the Old City on a quiet street near a wide variety of restaurants. Very clean with hot showers, plus the best hostel breakfast! A gorgeous roof top terrace overlooks the sea and Blue Mosque. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Made my visit to Istanbul that much better.

We love this place. Stayed there on two occasions during our trip for three nights each time. It's a great location in Sultanhamet just minutes from both Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia. The terrace has great views of the Bosphorus and Sea of Mamara. The Agora has both private rooms and hostel-style dorm rooms. The private room we stayed in... More

My husband and I stayed at the Agora in late April and May of this year.....two different times. It was a great place to stay. Very clean, great staff and a delicious breakfast. It is in a nice neighborhood with lots of good restaurants within a couple of blocks and a great location for sightseeing in Istanbul. One of my... More

At first it has the perfect location for traveling. Also It's very clean and the receptionists are very kind and friendly! If you're looking for some place to stay in Istanbul, don't hesitate more and just choose it! 정말 청결하고요, 위치가 정말 뛰어납니다. 터키 직원분도 진짜 유쾌하고, 일본인 사장님(?)도 정말 친절하세요! 강추입니다!

Need help with directions, traveling, ideas for where to go listen to live music, how to get around Istanbul? The hostel staff here are more than happy to help you and treat you with as much enthusiasm as they did with the first person who asked them the same questions already! They really go the extra mile!

Staying at Agora was such a comforting experience. After long hours of travel, I could check in right away at 11 AM, take a nap and then enjoy the wonderful rooftop view! Even if I was alone, it was an amazing atmosphere and friendly staff. Met people from Korea, Australia and Canada! :D :D :D The reception is so helpful,... More
