I stayed at Cheers Hostel during my stay in Istanbul. There location is really good, very close to Hagia Sophia. You can walk to all the major attractions in sultanahmet area. The hostel staff is very friendly, accomodating & will help you out in whatver way they can. The atmosphere at the hostel is really cool as well. Highly recommended... More

You really cant compete with this place. The staff are friendly, its affordable, it has a great chilled vibe and you simply couldnt beat the location if you tried. No need for public transport from this place, the major attractions of istanbul are all within walking distance of this place, with the Ayasofia and Blue Mosque a 3 minute walk... More

The hostel is a very good option, with friendly staff and a very good location, if you are interested in the main sights of Istanbul. The only "negative" aspect would be the glass-door of our room and thus, it was not that dark sometimes. If you are sensitive to this, take a sleeping shade with you ;-)

I loved this place! Over the years I've stayed in literally dozens of hostels in various parts of the world (e.g., North America, Europe, and Asia), and I can honestly say this is my all time favorite hostel. I was here for six nights, and at less than $20 USD/night, the hostel is an excellent bargain. Located within five minutes... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in september 2014 after a tour and it was an amazing end to my time in turkey. The location is great, just down a street from Haggia Sofia, and the view from the rooftop bar is stunning. The rooms are all very spacious and provide lockers. The breakfast was great, lots of fresh fruit,... More

So far on my trip around the world (Asia & Europe) this has to be my favourite hostel by far. To start, this hostel was recommended to me by my flight agent who has traveled all over the world (even Eastern Russia, not sure what he was thinking..). Even he said it stands out as one of his favourites. It's... More
