We couldn't dream the hostel is actually as great as we read on the reviews. Right near Taksim Square, and just a little walk away from Findikli tram station, which is by the Bosphorus. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Very clean, no noise, heater,free wifi, good beds and sheets. What we really loved beyond the actual place, is the location,... More

This hostel is definitely worth every penny they are asking. Excellent location 5 min walk to Taksim Square (very, very, very steep hill to climb and descend). The owner is very nice and accommodating. We arrived at midnight and our room was given away (wasn't aware this would be a problem). He came all the way from his home to... More

I really loved this place. Stayed in a dorm for 10 days. Amazing view from the rooftop terrace. You can actually see the Bosphorus from there. Staff guys are great as well. All friendly and willing to help. Prices for Istanbul are reasonable. The place is clean, though they have 2 lovely dogs living in there, with the staff. So... More

This hostel is located a 2min walk from Findikli Metro station, which is only about 5 stops to Eminonu and Sultanahmet. The room itself was fine, however wifi did not work in the room. Wifi worked on the rooftop terrace, however even then not the fastest speed. Staff were generally helpful when we asked questions and the owner called us... More

Owner is making up fake €/TL rate (1€=TL) saying it's a way to be protected from evolving €/TL rates. Best way not to be be ripped off is to avoid it! Otherwise, the situation is good but not very clean and very noisy.

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.
