This was my second time staying with Agora Hostel, and I'd go back again! The price alone is amazing, and the breakfast was always great. The location was great for seeing the more historical side of Istanbul, and we loved the convenience to our destinations. The whole place is very clean, and we loved hanging out on the rooftop deck.... More

I arrived Istanbul early in the morning and took a taxi to the guesthouse ~15 euros. Initially booked the mixed dorm, decided I wanted a private room when I got there. The manager was very friendly, they had one last private room available and gave me a discounted price for 3 nights, also allowed me to check in straight away... More

I stayed in the hostel for four nights this week, in a four bed dorm. The stay was perfect in every way. The hostel is in an excellent location in the old city, and with easy access to all the old city tourist sights. The dorm room was clean, and was maintained daily. The bathrooms are clean, updated and maintained... More

It was not that hard to get to Takism with a little help from the staff. The Breakfast on the roof is an excellent... More

I am writing this on behalf of my girlfriend who just returned from her stay at the Agora Guest house in Istanbul, English is not her forté, but despite this she has nothing but glowing comments about her time there. As mentioned, English is not her strong point, yet Motif and his team made her incredibly welcome. On her first... More

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.
