My stay at the orient international hostel was a joyful experience–everything from the staffs hospitality to the facilities was top notch. We arranged for an airport pickup via the hostel and were promptly retrieved. From the moment we arrived at the hostel we were treated like family and given heaps of advice on where to go and what to see.... More

I stayed in the 30 bed dorm at the orient hostel during my first stay in Istanbul. The rooms were clean, bathrooms too. The staff was extremely helpful and really friendly from the minute I got there to the minute I left. They were very informative and hospitable. Free breakfast was included in the price, which at 10-11 euro, was... More

I stayed at Orient hostel after staying at Antique (I booked late and they were full for the weekend) and got disappointed. Staff is very friendly and helpful and the room (50) is significantly larger than at Antique (11), but the showers aren't clean enough and breakfast wasn't great for my taste (though I might have been spoiled from pervious...

We reserved two nights, but after our first night we recognized, that we would lile to stay longer, because of the great atmosphere, the friendly staff and especially because of the perfect location. And fortunately, we could just stay one night more, without any booking problems or stress. We had a clean room with all we needed and also the... More

This hostel has the best location, clean establishment, adequate accommodations but most importantly it has the most amazing staff. They will help you with everything you need! Whether that is planing a day trip, adjusting your existing plans, tips for eating and shopping, or just diving into their culture. I cannot express my gratitude to the wonderful staff for making...

I stayed 5 nights at orient hostel. It is a clean, cozy and well located hostel. Staff are really cool people. Donner kebab with a beer is the perfect deal to see a football soccer match. The breakfast is really good and you take it in a nice dinner room. Great stay in this hostel, recommended. Ah, and take your... More

Orient hostel is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff are very welcoming, helpful and friendly. They even help you plan your trips. The location of the hostel couldn't be better, right in the middle of Sultanahmet, 5 min walk from Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. The view from the rooftop at sunset is definitely... More

I have been staying at this for a few days now. I initially stayed here as my friends did. I have slept in both dorms and private rooms. The dorms are kept in good condition with very little noise. The private are a little bit more expensive as long as you share with someone the cost (40 EUR for the... More
