Very eclectic decoration and warm space for gathering. The fellow travelers were mostly young and a mix of backpacking and extended-weekend travelers- all good folk. Kitchen can get a little crowded and their is still some refurbishing going on. I could feel the hostel getting better as I stayed there. Nathan, the owner, really cares about his place. He is...

I stayed here before I found an apartment for my exchange semester in Istanbul. I stayed here for 7 nights. It was one of the best hostels I've stayed at. It was very friendly, open, the staff was cool, the area was cool and hipp, close to istiklal avenue, close to everything. There is a great restaurant that serves the... More

We came here after it went under new management. As soon as we got in the owner and staff of the hostel made us feel so welcome, like long-time friends! Our room was neat and tidy, free wi-fi. What really makes this place is the people, as I also read before coming here. So many different people from all over... More

this hostel was by far one of the cheaper options in Taksim but it certainly catered to all our needs, good clean bathrooms, enough room in the doorms and comfy beds ( all for about half the price of the rest of taksim). The manager, Onur was great in advising us places to eat, drink and visit, he even came... More

We stayed in Soho hostel for a couple nights which was horrid, rooms filled with ciggarette smoke and noises from the street. We decided to come here. Very quiet steet, yet so close to the action. Great cafes, shops and supermarkets near by. They have a kitchen which they allow you to cook in and a fridge to uses if... More

When I arrived at the hostel in the morning, there was no staff on the counter. The staff was sleeping beside on the couch and totally ignoring me, it was funny. The room was just okay, but the the location of its site was so great. It wasn't too far to reach the shopping street(Taksim square) and the subway station.... More
