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! :)
