Great price/quality. Excellent reception and location. Nice place to stay, good restaurants and mini-markets close by. Also close to Istanbuls main attractions. Recommended 100%! I stayed there in January and I had a great time!

It is a nice hostel in the centre of Istanbul. The lobby looks great, the breakfast is normal (too vegeterian for me hehe) and the rooms are alright although when I was there in winter the heating was not good, especially in the rooms. The staff is really nice. In my opinion, the best thing about the hostel is the... More

As a lone backpacker, I don't look for 5 stars hotels when visiting tourist attractions, or spending the night in a city. Cordial House might not be what most people expect from a hotel/hostel, but if you don't mind a few flaws, then you'll have access to most tourist attractions in Istanbul. Just a few blocks from the Aya Sophia,... More

A very good hostel located in a key position for the visit of the city. The sheets are clean, the rooms also and they are not so small. The common baths are usable. The price is very very cheap. I don't give five stars only because of some bad smell in the common areas and of the lack of as... More

Amazing location near everything you'd need - shops, transport, mosques, attractions, food, etc! We had a private room and it was brilliant, with a little balcony as well. Everything seemed new and clean, the little bar is perfect to chill out and the WiFi just about stretched to our room, if not you can chill downstairs or in the seating... More

Fabulous location near the trams and incredible hospitality- clean rooms (for a hostel set up) however observe caution when booking the airport shuttle. It's 15 TL per person and it leaves several times a day- take the earlier shuttle to avoid stress and time restraints at the airport. My sister and I booked the 1040 shuttle for a 1425 international... More

Besides the prime location right in the heart of Old Istanbul,near the Bazaar and the museums, Cordial House staff made my stay quite enjoyable. Mehmet Krbckoglu provided excellent service and helped me navigate through parts of Istanbul when I first arrived. I work as a hotel front desk receptionist back home, and the amount of service Mehmet provided was truly... More

Not a bad place to spend the night whilst checking out some of Istanbul's historic Sultanahmet quarter. I stayed in a basic but fair sized and tidy room, with an en suite bathroom that was okay for a shower at the end of the day despite constantly having a little fly buzzing around it (either it was one very hardy...
