Sometimes it can be a little noisy at night, but it is not obnoxiusly loud- i... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in a private double room at this hostel with a shared bathroom. While I can see the appeal for people who want to party for most of the night, it wasn't for us. The noise was CRAZY - we had loud pop music blaring from the bar downstairs and drunk people shouting and screaming in... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for two weeks and absolutely loved it! We arrived there at 3 am in the morning, bedraggled and tired from our journey, to be greeted by friendly and helpful service from the very start. The staff became like family to us, helping us find our bearings in what can at times be an intimidatingly... More

I spent one night in Orient Hostel in April 2014. It was a great experience - excellent location (5 min from Hagia Sofia), clean & nice rooms, free wifi, friendly and very helpful staff, tasty breakfest, good price, what can be expected more? I am fascinated by Istanbul, so I will definitely go back to Orient Hostel. Katarzyna, Poland

This is the only place I'd ever stay in Istanbul. Excellent setting, close to all the hot spots to see in the city, great value, airport transport, free wifi, and a world class multi-lingual staff that made my stay very relaxed & enjoyable. I had a personal health issue while in Istanbul, and the owners went above and beyond to... More

This place is one of my favorite stays in a hostel ever all together in nearly 20 countries. It is pretty much everything you'd ever want from a hostal! Prices are extremely reasonable (cheap), the best free breakfast I have ever had in a hostel (including omelette taken to your table, cheese, bread, cereals, milk yogurt, etc.) Centrally located just...

I stayed here for a week late in March, in the 30 person room. The reason for the hearty review is mostly because the people that work there. My luggage was lost by Turkish Airlines and they were a complete and utter pain to deal with for many reasons that I will omit in this review, but the guys working... More

Stayed here a year ago with a friend. Turned up on the day and stayed in a male dorm room. Beds were comfortable and the room was warm and quiet. Bathrooms were pretty clean and showers hot. The hostel is in the 'European' side of the city and close to the centre. Recommend if you need somewhere cheap or last... More
