The place is not easy to find but has a very good location. The staff is very polite and helps a lot, our room was fine, too. The only thing I didn't like was the breakfast. Everyday the same (a little piece of cheese, melone, one boiled egg and small boxes of jam, honey, butter and hazelnut spread) and kind... More

Taksim lounge is very well located in the centre of the Taksim neighbourhood, a couple of minutes walk from Taksim square and the main shopping street and with many restaurants, bars and shops nearby. It's about 30 minutes walk from the old centre. We had a big double room with a bathroom nextdoor, both very clean. Breakfast is included and... More

First of all the location is awesome, it's near Taksim square and Istiklal street, you could get anything you want there. We were staying on the 3rd floor female dorm, at first we found a bit weird that the door keeps opening. Sooner we found that its pretty safe and good for ventilation. Although there is no air-con, it's still... More

Good value for the money, Breakfast was normal but i loved it, hot tea available all the time. The top terrace is a nice cozy place for relaxing and interacting with the other travelers. Place is quite frequented and can be noisy sometimes but you can exchange experiences with tourists from all around the world. Nice place for a short... More

Taksim Lounge Hostel is located close to excellent eateries, shops, and sights as well as the tram (Tophane stop & the water is a 12 minute walk, which passes 6 ATMs and further cafes & shops). We spent 3 nights in a cozy double room which had a private 3 piece bath (hole in the wall and very poor lighting... More

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
