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

Ideal Hostel. Super cheap (6 euros a night for a shared room with 12 people), close to centre (5 minutes walking to Istiklal Cadessi). Ideal for people who don't mind to share with other people, and also it is quiet after 12 pm, so don't worry about your night rest. Fairly clean and friendly owner!

I really enjoyed my stay in this hostel, rooms were clean and comfy. I think the quality/price ratio is really good cause the location is the best (in Taksim, the center of Istanbul) and prices are not high. Staff were reeeaaaaallly nice!! Thanks for all!

This is the most fabulous hostel. The staff is friendly, the rooms spacious and clean, the bathrooms are spotless, and it is a great value. I felt at home here, which was a great value. If I have the chance to return to Istanbul I will be staying here. The hostel is in a great location and has everything you... More

Well i stayed in Taksim Sofa Hostel for 2 nights in Nov'12. The best part about this hostel is the location , right in the middle of Istiklal street in Taksim Square. Rooms were quite small but neat. The staff is really helpful and they serve good breakfast :)

Myself and a friend stayed here for a couple of nights and had a great time. The staff were so friendly making sure we knew where we were going each day. I think I can say for both of us that we were sad to leave all the people behind, we made some great friends and had fun exploring. The... More

I have a problem rating this hostel. I stayed in a room which wasn't clean, and there was no everyday cleaning service offered. At some point I had to change rooms and I found myself without towels and toilet paper, because the cleaner had forgotten to provide them. On the other hand, the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They... More

This is by far one of the best run hostels. When it bowls down to when you're staying in a host it matters most about the management. They went out of their way to accomodate you and they made me feel like a prince. I loved this place, wish I would have stayed here more days! The beds are SUPER... More
