This hostel is right in Taksim and is a great starting point to access Istanbul. The rooms are comfy enough and the rooftop terrace is perfect for unwinding at the end of the day. Even with lots of people around the space never felt crowded. The hostel kitten will let you pat her, too!

The best thing about this place is the genuinely friendly staff. Their command of English was excellent and they were always on hand to alwayd help you out should you need it. Rooms were clean though the showers were a bit clogged up. The location was good, although a bit hard to find. I would recommend printing a map and... More

Close to Taksim square and a very reasonable price. The hostel is clean and has lots of rooms. Enter through the hamman and climb the stairs to your room, with bunk beds and wooden floors and even a fridge to keep your bottled water cold! The standout feature of this hostel is the top floor common room with old school... More

First of all, the hostel is in a very good location (close to Taksim Square and Istiklal Street), but it's very hard to find, because it's located at a small street. I recommend you to print a google map with the directions to the place or have the Trip Advisor App at your phone, because the locals didn't know the... More

Wanted a simple hamam experience for my final night in Turkey, so wanted to go to a cheaper, newer place for a change. Tried this one. Yuck. I had done my research, and knew not to expect the Ritz spa. However, this place was a bit on the dirty side, but also just grungy. Wanted the basic hamam treatment, and... More

A short 10 minute walk from Taksim Square, Aga Hamam is a clean, cheap and pleasent place to stay. There are supermarkets nearby and the Hostel was orginally, and still is, a Turkish bath house for those interested in experincing a Turkish bath.

I organised a mystery tour to Istanbul for 22 people and it was on a tight budget so chose this hostel. It was excellent value for money and the upstairs sitting room, kitchen and roof terrace was fantastic. We were the only ones staying so had the place to ourselves. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location of the... More

When I stayed at Aga Hamam Hostel the staff was very accommodating I hurt my left leg and they drove me to the hospital for treatment. The Hostel is located in a central place downtown, easy access to the metro and tram.

Didn't stay at the hostel, but had the hamam.. it was not good, but not bad either.. the problem was that we went around 9 and they were going to close soon, so they rushed us all out, and i didn't feel like we got a complete service.. the oil massage was good and the price was acceptable
