I really liked the hostel, people are a bit disorganized, but lovely people. The best is the terrace. Amazing view, we loved to stay there for one week. The hostel is in the center of restaurants, lovely bars, shops etc. You will love this place. Internet is good on the terrace but very unstable in the rooms.

Really central location with friendly staff. Clean as a hostel can be, this place is really good for backpackers around the world. I'm a Turkish guy, but place is full with tourists and they are also happy as me. Recommended if you are a guy thinking: less money for staying-more money for fun!

“5 minute walk from the sea side, metro, and Taksim Square, cheap and delicious home cooked dinners, great view from the rooftop terrace, free in room lockers, and great staff. The staff really won me over on my stay here. I quickly felt like part of their hostel family. Some of my best times in Istanbul was just sitting on... More

This small cozy hostel is actually 8 minutes' walk down hill from the Taksim Square, so if you come from the Ataturk Airport by Tram, it is better to drop off at Firdirk Station and walk up the Mebusan street, than you can find the front door of Route 39 hiding beside the entrance of the Pizza Chain Domino.

This place had friendly staff, a nice view and location but in general was a disappointment. We stayed in a twin room with a shared bathroom. When first entering the building I could tell that it was not clean. When we reached our room the sheets were old and stained and did not fit the mattress properly and came off... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Route 39 for 4 nights while we visited Istanbul in mid August. Upon arriving we checked in with Steve, who was incredibly helpful with all of the tourist attractions around and all the do's and dont's on the culture which can be very beneficial if you aren't familiar with the muslim culture. The rest... More

Our stay at Route 39 was the longest in our 7-month-so-far trip, aside from visits with family. We stayed a total of 10 days (almost enough for a brief look around this lovely city!), and were very comfortable, enjoying the room, the location, the good rooftop breakfast-with-a-view and the friendly staff. This hostel is well situated between Taksim Square and... More
