Alright guys, this is a kind of hostel you really want to stay in Istanbul. I lived in Istanbul for 5 years then went abroad for masters. We had to organize with my masters class a trip to Istanbul. So, I made my little brother literally go and check every single hostel in Istanbul. Afterwards, it was a very easy... More

This hostel couldn't have fitted my needs better: we were looking for something price-friendly in a good location and what we got went way beyond that. The price and location were fantastic but we also got incredible service from the staff and as many extras as you can imagine. They gave us great advice on things to do and places... More

We've stayed in the Green House hostel with a big group of international students for 9 nights in May 2014 and it was an unbelievable experience. Even though we enjoyed the city itself a lot, our stay in this hostel made our trip even nicer! The location is almost perfect - it is close to Taksim (and Taksim is where... More

I chose this hostel because of it's proximity to the Havatas bus (that takes you to the airport) and the cost because I was only in Istanbul for the day between flights. It was easy to find and I felt very safe in the neighborhood. The receptionist was fantastic and the rooms were clean and very well maintained, though I... More

We rented a suite for a week and we were extremely satisfied! Suite was modern, spacious, clean - there is a kitchen, but if you're planning to cook, you'll need to buy at least some cutlery. The stuff was really helpful, the location is great - really close to Taksim square, but far enough to enjoy our peaceful sleep.
