Nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Big advantages are wifi, living room, individual lockers and location. Lively neighbourhood with nice coffee shops and restaurants. Hostel is only a bit noisy at night.

The whole team is nice and helpful. Rooms are clean and tidy. Great location, close enough to Sultanahmet and the modern Istanbul. Nice view from the rooftop!! You can arrange airport transfer with the hostel for 30 euros. Continental breakfast available.

This was by far my best stay in a hostel. The whole team was very friendly and helpful, they have individual lockers so i felt very safe all of the time. The localization is great, close enough to walk everywhere but hidden enough to be silent. I like that its not a party hostel, but is near a bunch os... More

The Rapunzel Team is very kind. They always helped me with addresses and with nice tips of the city. I liked all the hostel, very cozy, well located, delicious breakfast (it begins a little tale and i missed the boiled eggs). The only thing that I suggest: I wondered to had a stove to cook something at night.

Funny story: so I accidentally booked this hostel thinking it was another one but it turned out to be an excellent choice! Location-wise, it's near the Galata Tower and within walking distance to the Kamakoy tram stop and to the ferry that takes you to the Asian side. My friend and I were able to walk by foot to the...

If you're looking for good value accommodation in a fantastic location in central Istanbul then go to Rapunzel. Clean, warm and safe rooms, the breakfasts are decent (apart from the olives) but the please really comes into its own with the staff. Very friendly, happy to chat to you, book restaurants etc. and full of good local knowledge.

I have got not a single complaint. Everything was great. The hostel is warm, the rooms are nice, the breakfast is nice, the location is perfect and the staff was more than great! :) You can get any sorts of tips from them regarding the city.

We are normally more frugal when choosing hostels in Turkey but this time we ended up spending a bit more than our budget. Worth it. The security and welcoming atmosphere from each staff member made our stay very comfortable. Clean, warm, modern and safe.

Stayed here two nights. The ambience in this small old building with creaking wooden stairs and clean rooms is wonderful. Right in the middle of Galata, Beyoglu. You can walk to the bridge and bar area in less then 10 minutes. The very helpful staff will inform you to what's happening in Istanbul. Rapunzel is great!
