The last couple of days in Istanbul, we stayed here. Absolutely brilliant place, we took the shared dorms, it has the most amazing breakfast view for the price with pretty good breakfast. Smack in the middle of Sultanahmet with almost everything you want to see at walking distance. They are also quite helpful, will also arrange a cost effective way... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend for 4 days and it was very good. The beds are not the most comfortable in the world but they are ok. The staff is excellent, the guys that work there are super nice and they make you feel very comfortable and familiar. The location is excellent, just a couple of minutes of the... More

This is the best hostel I've stayed in my many trips to Istanbul. The staff are very helpful, friendly and give you good tips on the city. The hostel is really well located, a short walk to the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bazaar and very close to Gulhane Metro station so it is easy to get to and from... More

Stayed here for a few days in October! We absolutely loved this hostel. Great location, great people, SUPER friendly staff. They have an amazing rooftop terrace where lodgers can congregate and free tea is served. To top it off, a delicious and generous breakfast is included with your stay. I highly recommend this hostel!! :D

We had only intended to stay 3 nights and then travel around Turkey a bit. We had such a great experience with the hostel that we decided to come back to Istanbul and stay even longer. The staff is very personable and responsive, and I really like the fact that every day (like clockwork), there is someone cleaning the entire... More

I once met Oslo from Czechoslovakia who knew nothing about nothing at Harmony;) best hostel in Istanbul and that's truth. The fish BBQ is always fun and tasty! I flew my carpet home from this hostel and didn't break down , so that's a plus. Hello to all the staff from Adam! Miss you guys.

The staff here is terrible and does not put the safety of the guests as a priority over their own social agendas. This is in regards to the owner. I left and only received a partial refund and was harassed in the street by the owner after I had checked out. It almost ruined my experience of Istanbul. The rooftop... More

I stayed at Harmony Hostel back in May before beginning a fellowship that took me across Turkey.Harmony was definitely a great experience-- due to three of the staff. Ahmed, Mahmood, and Rami were great. Very helpful and personable. Ahmed and Mahmood cooked breakfast every morning, which I have to say went beyond what you'll find at other hostels in Sultanahmet...

Excellent place to stay! With great and always friendly stuff. All the big sights are 5 minutes walking, tram-station close by. Breakfast is very enjoyable :) and the roof terrace even better. If you are lucky you even get the pleasure of drinking a bear there with the big boss. I can only advice everyone to go there.
