We stayed 2 nights it was easy to find and centrally located. Staff were easy to deal with and very helpful. Our room was clean as was the communal area. We had breakfast which was included it was basic but good. Laundry facilities were good for a small charge. Wifi was ok.

Stayed here for 7 nights in a 4-bed dorm. The room was clean and big, and lockers were provided free of charge. The shared toilet was also very clean. The best part about this hostel was probably its great location, just next to Taksim Square and the pedestrian area, near where all the bars are. The social atmosphere within the... More

I stayed in EastWest Hostel for few nights in a 6 bed dorm. The place is value for the price is good and the location of the hostel is excellent. Short walking distance to shops and restaurants and 10 minutes walk to the old city where all the tourist attractions are. Even though it's situated right in the vivid Taksim... More

We stayed in a 3 bed dorm with shared toilet facilities (paid 16euros/pax/night), the room is clean and we were lucky to have the room to ourselves (2 of us) for the 3 nights when we were there. We walked from Taksim Square down Istilkal road before turning in to smaller road (Yeni Carsi), it took us about 20-25 minutes... More

I have stayed at EastWest twice already and will stay there again in a couple of weeks. If what a visitor to Istanbul wants is to stay in Beyoglu, within easy reach of all the major attractions, yet in relative piece and quiet - EastWest is perfect. It could be that I have simply been lucky with my roommates, but... More

This hostel is in a very good location, near Taksim Plaza and the main street. It was a 4 beds room, the bathroom was very very small, I spent 4 nights and none came to clean it. There was lockers in the room but they were all opened (keys doesn't work). Too much expensive for this type of service. Air... More

Sometimes I stay up late for work at my office in Taksim and then go to Eastwest Hostel to sleep. It is a cozy place with helpful and smiling staff. I stayed both in 4-bed dorm and double room before. When I entered the room, it was always tidy and clean whatever the time was. The showers are clean and... More

This is my second time staying at this hostel. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough to help you whilst staying at the hostel. It is in a great location although the three bed dorm at the back is noisier than the four bed dorm due to being close to a nightclub. The first time I stayed here... More

Finding this hostel can be a struggle. Even taxis can't find it. But once you get there, the people are very friendly and you will immediately see that's it hidden in a little corner off one of the most famous streets in Taksim. The room is air-conditioned, the bed is very comfortable, and the private bathroom is super clean. Feels... More
