Great location near all the main tourist attractions (Topkapi Palace, Basilica Cistern, Ayia Sofia, Blue Mosque), friendly staff, all at a super affordable price. Would recommend to anyone wanting to go to Istanbul!

My stay at the harmony hostel was very pleasant. I got to know many new people and even the staff can be considered friends now. I would recommend to eat at the hostel at least once as the food is prepared by the staff and is very delicious and local.

The hostel was in a great location, easy to find and had a great roof top space. Common area but unfortunately they smoke inside the common area. The staff went out of their way to help you. The downfalls were the fact the breakfast was usually late, so if you had to be somewhere at a certain time you may... More

This place could be great but the unorganised staff let themselves down at times. Except for Bob who works up top he's cool. The bathroom in my room wasn't so clean with cigarette ash on the floor and people were smoking in my room. The cleaner left things all over the stairs for people to trip on. Breakfast is ok...

This was the first time I've ever stayed in a hostel, and as a teen from America, I was highly impressed by how authentic it felt. There were lockers and places to keep your thing separate from the rest of your roommates. The receptionists were kind and helpful. It was not the cleanest place I've ever stayed which I think...

i stayed here three nights because i missed my flight and wanted a inexpensive place in central location. The positives are the bed, very comfortable and not bunk beds, the nice view from the common room, and the really friendly staff. The guest were interesting and if you are looking for people to chat up and even do things with... More

From 4 years I'm coming to Istanbul every year. And I always choose Harmony Hostel. Mostly because it has very good localisation. But this hostel has more advantages: the price, helpful staff, comfortable beds, nice roof top terrace (but this time was a little bit dirty). The best thing is that wi fi works on roof terrace so this is... More
