Excellent staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. Fabulous breakfast . Perfect location.the hotel is 200 years old building but renovated with modern amenities. The staff takes good care of your basic needs. The cellar for breakfast us quaint and interesting . The street is interesting and on Istiklal Street. There are many bars and restaurants with great night life

The hostel was very clean - I am very fussy about shared bathrooms in hostels and if found myself very comfortable here. Prices were good in comparison to other (dirtier) hostels that we stayed in in Istanbul. On the 4th... More

people were friendly and the facilities were really nice compared to the price. I didn't spend too much time inside, since the area around was really beautiful.- - - - - -- - - - - -- - - - - -- - - -

A cozy, very clean and budget hostel. Breakfast is simple and enough. Stable and strong hot water shower. The owner Sezai is very easy to hang out. I like the Pizza Vegas near hostel.

I spent 8 nights in the female 6-bed room. Everyone was very kind, the other guests were polite, rooms and bedrooms are clean, breakfast on the terrace satisfying. It's really 4 minutes from Taksim square. And look at the price! :)

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
