This hostel made a great impression on me, and made my stay in Istanbul even more memorable. The staff of the hostel is especially nice and helpful! Perfect way to meet interesting people, this hostel will mark your stay in the wonderful city of Istanbul!

Extremely friendly staff, great and professional service, just a few hundreds of metres from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. And (literally) on top of all that, there's a really nice rooftop bar with a fantastic view. Chilling out and smoking nargile up there is an unforgetable enjoyment

I was in Istanbul with two of my friends and we have never been in a hostel so we wanted to try. It was one of the best experiences I have had. Beside the good location and accommodation the best thing for us was the service. Always works in small places like hostels. These people were so kind they became... More

I stayed in Orient for 7 nights and spent great time there! The hostel has one biiiiiig plus: A BAR! That's where I drank lots of their great tea and smoked different kinds of tobacco (nargila). Also, a lot of people staying in the hostel like to unwind there so it's a perfect way to meet new people from all... More

Orient hostel is the best hostel ever. Staff is very friendly, nice and funny (Yucel especially :D), and we met a lot of people at the bar and had a great time (party all the time!) It' s super close to Ayasofya and Blue Mosque so the location is great! I recommend to all!

I've stayed here three times now and the staff and guests are great. It's very cheap and you get what you pay for, but it's still great value and I'd definitely go back - also, the location is superb: just by the Hagia Sophia and very close to most of the main sites of interest.

Stayed here in July, 2014 on my first trip to Istanbul. The staff were so friendly and helpful they were able to assist me when booking a tour to Gallipoli and recommend places to visit. Don't normally stay in hostels but this was definitely the best i've seen by far. Great place, friendly people :)

When I arrived I was immediately welcomed and upgraded to a better room for the same price. The downstairs area was a perfect environment to meet the other guests and the staff was super friendly. They provided tea, fun conversations, and advice. One of them (Yugal) showed a few of us around the Asian side of the city when he... More

I am always grateful to meet friendly staff when I'm travelling on my own and the staff here have been the best on my entire European trip. Turkey really deserves the reputation it has for friendly people and if you need a place that will ease your frayed language-trapped nerves the people here are second-to-none.
