The Taksim Lounge is near Taksim Square and not easy to find. It's pretty small inside, but there's also a place to eat and relax on fhe top of the building. It's clean everywhere but also very old,especially the bathrooms. But it's worth for the price and location. It's a quite area at night. The staff was friendly and helps... More

Very friendly and helpful staff, reasonable breakfast, central location and good atmosphere. The staff have good taste in music also - nice eclectic mix played on good speakers in the evenings. Much respect to all the guys who work there (shout out to Giray, Onur and all the gang) Ronan from Ireland.

I've visited Taksim Lounge Hostel in march 2012. The first thing I'm going to say is that it is one of the nicest hostels I've ever been, including a backpack trip of 6 months in South America and a couple of trips through Europe. Even now, almost two years later, I still remember Engin, Tahsin and Cengiz who were always... More

We stayed 2 nights in a four bed dorm and were very happy with it. It was cool outside but the room was nice and warm and the beds comfortable and quiet. The shower was hot with high water pressure, one of the best hostel showers we've ever had. There were no locks at all on the room doors so... More

Once you've seen the tourist sites in Sultanehmet, this is a good place to stay to see a different area of Istanbul with far fewer tourists. The staff are welcoming, the double rooms are quite spacious, although a little musty, and the bathrooms have super powerful showers and hot water. There is a small and basic breakfast included and the... More

I can't figure out how this place has so many good reviews. I stayed in the largest dorm and it was terrible. I'm not picky--I've stayed in probably 30 hostels over the last ten years, and this was the first time I ever left a place early, I didn't even care that I couldn't get my money back. It's true,...

I had the most interesting time in Taksim when I stayed in Lounge Hostel. Though the proximity to the Gezi Park rallies/demonstration became sort of a problem on one weekend in June, the hostel is definitely one of the best places to stay in Istanbul (when on a budget or when you're really not into hotel frills). I have so... More

I stayed with my boyfriend and we really enjoyed our stay! The double room was perfect, it was spacious, clean, calm, looked like a real hotel but cheaper! There is a terasse at the top of the hostel which was really cool in the evening for relax and have a drink. The staff were so nice, we had lots of... More
