This was booked on Hostelworld being the cheapest hostel in Istanbul. Be warned there is no air conditioning and the rooms get disgustingly hot in the night. The showers were covered in mould and there really was no social scene to mention. The location was pretty perfect and was a 2 minute walk to Taksim square. We moved to a... More

This hostel had the BEST location, only 5 minutes walking from Taksim! We booked three beds in a four bed female dorm, but the staff of the hostel was so sweet as to offer us an upgrade to a private three bed room. Naturally, we accepted their offer. For the three days that we stayed there, all staff was immensely... More

We stayed here for 1 night in December in the 9-bed dormitory. We THANKFULLY only stayed here 1 night. We spent most of the time outside and got up early to catch a bus back to the airport. The directions to this hostel were fairly simple as it is located just off of the main pedestrian street from Taksim Square.... More

Great location off Taksim square and Istiklal St, close to bus and rail service. Staff are knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms are tiny and cramped. No secure places to lock up your bag (not an issue for me - just dont leave anything important in your bag, its a hostel afterall!). Some people slept with their bag due to lack of... More

Filthy dirty, poor and unsocial atmosphere and lazy staff. You can find better in Istanbul, even at this price. On the positive side it is located in Taksim near the nightlife. But that will also detract from your night of sleep!

Let's be warned - I have stayed in noisy places in Delhi and Bangkok but this takes the cake and cherry with it. The mixed dorm is located on second floor and I can't shut off the window because out of respect for other people. The location is perfect (minutes from Taksim metro), staff are nice and knows everything, toilet... More

Soho is a nice and clean place in a very busy and vivid area - surrounded by many bars and cafes it can be a bit noisy at night but the windows are good enough.The staff is very helpful and makes you feel very welcome.

I found this hostel to be great. The only bad things would be that there is only one toilet and two showers, and also that the rooms can be a bit small. But besides that it was fantastic. The staff were very friendly and make you fell as if you were one of the family. The rooms, although small and... More

I stayed here for three or four weeks in total and don't regret a single dime that I spent. The staff were all great, and I truly felt more as if I were with family than staying in just another traveler's dive - some of my best memories were in Istanbul! The noise from the street can be loud and... More
