Loved this hostel and the fun vibe. The cute live in cats were a bonus and the artwork on the walls and the option to add to it was great. Rooms were clean and quite big and the hodtel was in a great location really close to taksim

The only lockers used are tiny ones in the lobby, and when mentioning that that didn't work for me, the lockers in the room we weren't... More

Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Nice easy atmosphere. Room was grand and quiet. It was easy enough to get to following web site directions. Lots of cats around the place which I loved but might not be to everyones liking. Would wholly recommend staying there.

The atmosphere of the place is great. It's nice to hang out in the common areas and get to know the staff, the kittens, and the other boarders. The staff are really warm and friendly, and the felines are sociable (save one slightly aggressive male). Loved the breakfast every morning too. It was simple but plentiful with fruit, cake, ham,...

Stray Cat Hostel is really easy to find. Tram station is Fındıklı. 7-8 min walk from Taksim square. Well you have to climb a bit. Rooms are very clean, air conditioned, with really beautiful pics on the walls. The bathroom and the WC are clean as well. The stuff are polite and always ready to help. Well, one of the... More

We went to this Hostel for our school trip and liked our stay there: the location is practical, 2 minutes away from the tram station and 15 minutes walking distance away from Taxim, the famous shopping/restaurant/bars place. They also had a cat with kitten when we were there, they were lovely!
