Cheers Hostel is undoubtedly the best hostel I have stayed in following 6 months of European travel. I have stayed in 4 other hostels in Istanbul alone and this was top, so much so that I extended my stay, and missed an ongoing flight to Bodrum. The place itself is perfectly located in the old town, within 5 minutes walk... More

If you’re looking for the perfect hostel near the tourist spots, this is it. It’s conveniently located near Gulhane train station and 5 minutes away from Topkapi Palace, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. The staff are the best people I’ve met. Olga, Ahmet, Tariq, Sanin and Zaman I miss you all, will come back and visit again some day. I... More

Cheers hostel staff are very friendly and keen to help. We stayed in the 10 bed dorm and were impressed how clean the bathrooms were any time of day and night. The bar at the top had a very cool setting with plenty of drinks on offer with music to add to the relaxed vibe. We had a very early... More

This hostel has everything! Delicious breakfast, nice rooms, a cozy common room, a bar with the perfect view of Hagia Sofia and probably the nicest staff you could imagine. Everybody helps you with travel plans, recommendations on where to dine or whatever question you might have. It's easy to meet fellow travellers, especially if you head to the rooftop at... More

We stayed as a couple for 4 nights in one of the private rooms which is located around the corner from the main hostel. The place was lovely and quiet with a great restaurant at the bottom of the building. All of the hostel staff were really friendly and helpful. You couldn't get a better position, it is located a...

What can I say. The private apartments were lovely and spacious, the staff were very friendly, fun and helpful. The hostel bar has a fantastic view of the Aya Sofia and a great buzz to it in the evening. I would thoroughly recommend staying here, especially as you are in the heart of the sights of central Istanbul. Breakfast also... More

Make no mistake, if you're ever in Istanbul make youself a favor, stay at Cheers Hostel. It is located right in the center of the old city Sultanahmet, and you are, literally, 3 minutes away from a walk to the Hagia Sophia or the Blue Mosque, also really close to Gulhane tram station, which can take you to anywhere in...

Cheers Hostel made my trip to Istanbul extremely easy and enjoyable. First of all, the location is incredible. It's right in the middle of the Old City, so you can easily walk to all of the major tourist sights (Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Cistern, Topkapi Palace, the Grand Bazaar). If this weren't enough, the hostel itself is very nice. There's... More
