Had a fantastic time as a solo female traveller at Cheers... rooms were all comfortable and clean, breakfast (and coffee) was fantastic and the staff were always helpful and relaxed. The beautiful roof terrace and pet dog also make it a hostel you wish you had another week to stay in.

I loved every minute I spend at Cheers. The staff are incredibly friendly and fun, they make you feel so welcome it almost feels like home. The rooms are good, the big dorms are huge, it is clean, there's aircon, lockers and a very nice breakfast in the morning. The location of Cheers is amazing and the rooftop bar has... More

I stayed here for a week and had the best time. The staff are so friendly and helpful - they are available at anytime for any questions or just to hang out and chat (especially Sinan, "The Legend"). The Bar upstairs is a blast and very convenient - great way to get to know the other guests and staff! I... More

Loved the staff, who was always willing to sit down and chat over tea and coffee or hangout with you in the late hours of the night. The rooms were great and all of the people that I met at this hostel were awesome and from such diverse places. Couldn't have imagined a better way to experience Istanbul! Will definitely... More

I arrived in Istanbul after 3 months of traveling Europe. Having stayed in so many other places, Cheers really is a unique hostel. The staff create such a caring and welcoming community of travellers that is unlike anywhere else. A couple of quick basics: - The location is incredibly central. You're close to all the sights you'll want to see,... More

Stayed in a private room which was very spacious and clean! We were given fresh towels each day. The staff were so helpful and friendly and the bar upstairs was so much fun. Everyone is so nice we wished we had stayed in the dorm which looked just as nice. Breakfast consisted of bread cheese tomato cucumber and a variety... More

Stayed at this hostel with a group of friends for a few nights, and it turned out to be the perfect choice. Rooms were really clean with comfy beds and good access to the toilet and shower. There is also a great upstairs bar which is good for meeting other travellers. The staff in the hostel were all really friendly... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
