great location, nice people, all kind of information or help. Mr paprika can be a great host to understand Istambul and enjoy it. In the evening people always meet for a drink in the entrance so you can meet some amazing people there. A must for Istambul!!

They also advertise that they do tours but when I got... More

The ambiance that everybody needs, Mr. Paprika is someone you can count on and you can talk to, you gonna find there a lot of nice people, the owner is awesome and amazing (Mr.Paprika) and the hostel is near to whatever u might need. Bars with different ambiance, restaurant, AL ISTIKLAL Street, where you can do all your shopping.
