As far as backpackers go, this place is pretty good. Good rooftop terrace. Good simple buffet breakfast. Restaurant and bar with discount for residents. Travel agent in reception. And the location is good. In a street with a hundred restaurants. 2 min walk from the Blue Mosque. 5 min to tram.

I had a bed in a six bed dorm room. I chose this place for the price, the location (which is great, being five minutes walk from the Aya Sofya and Blue Mosque) and the free wifi. Sadly the wifi seemed very hit and miss, sometimes it worked, and sometimes it didn't. Apart from that I didn't have any complaints... More

I traveled to Turkey for the first time this past September. I planned my trip for 2 weeks and I was so nervous, especially being a solo female traveler. I read on their website that they have daily, 11, 14 day tours. I emailed & communicated with Berkay before my arrival and he, Hassan, Burak and the whole managing staff... More

We stayed 3 nights at Orient Hostel and we really enjoyed it. Its very well located in Sultanahmet, about 5 minutes to walk to the most popular sights in Istanbul, like the Blue Mosque. In the Night you can enjoy your time in the Hostels Café with cocktails and shisha. The rooms are small but that's not so important because... More

One my favourite hostels. Easily had the best atmosphere in the area. The staff are so friendly you forget they work there. When they are working they're very helpful in teaching you about turkey, booking tours and accomodation. You could book a complete tour of turkey from their network alone. Clean facilities, rooms and beds are standard. I would highly... More

My partner and I had a few days spare in Istanbul after a tour around Turkey so our travel agent suggested the Orient Hostel. This turned out to be a winner as we had a great time meeting people down at the bar and the staff were very helpful and friendly - they even put the All Blacks game on... More

My stay with Orient was that of two halves. The first was on a social visit to Istanbul and the second was a panicked work related situation. The moment I walked through the door I could tell by the roaring laughter and party atmosphere that this was the place to be if you wanted an exciting and eventful stay. The... More

Very clean. Very friendly staff. Very close to tourist attractions. Lots of nearby nightlife. My room was in the back so quiet. I had a/c which you must have. Room was private with it's own bath. Except for rather spartan furnishings it was everything I could want. The clientele ranged from young world travels to older travels like me. Many... More
