Stayed for 4 days, wonderful place, everyone is really helpful and friendly, the bathrooms are really clean and it's located in the perfect place, right near Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and Blue mosque. The view from the terrace is amazing and you can see the blue mosque and hagia sophia and the bosphorus from the terrace. Selcuk was very nice... More

Good location and nice top floor terrace but Dirty sheets and bathrooms. Loud music until 3 AM. Could not sleep well. The staff does not help much. Stay in other hostel in the area with a nice top floor terrace or stay near Galata and avoid the noisy tourist.

Super clean hostel in a prime area of the old city, Istanbul. Great terrace breakfast and an even better view of the city from the rooftop. Right in the middle of all the action in old city… Restaurants, shish bars galore. Free wi-fi! I can't recommend any higher, especially for the location and price!

Have stayed here twice now, once in 2011 and once in 2014. Excellent location in Sultanahmet. Just a few minutes walk away from the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.Tons of nice restaurants around and genuinely nice ppl. Great rooftop bar and fantastic breakfast spread every morning for a hostel. Would highly recommend.

I stayed in Orient with my Family (2 kids) in July 2014. Competence and excellent attitude towards clients are all over the place in Orient Hostel International, starting from the e-mail conversation (Mr. Onur, my Regards to You) and concluding your check-out. Friendly and helpful staff, pretty full breakfast, clean rooms, great location, nice view from the terrace for GOOD... More

This review is strictly for the rooftop lounge as we didn't stay at the hostel. Most evenings during our stay in Instanbul, we found ourselves on the rooftop of the Orient Hostel to enjoy the sunset and a beer. The location is perfect with the Blue Mosque and Aya Sofia on one side and the water on the other. Very... More

If you are coming to Istanbul to see historic sites, Orient Hostel is an excellent choice. It's well located, affordable, offers a variety of room options, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the view from the terrace is unbeatable. After a full day of sightseeing Orient offers a comfortable area to unwind and meet fellow travelers and locals alike.... More

This a very nice hostel in Sultanahmet, with such a friendly staff, always ready to help and give advice. We stayed in a triple room with bathroom (3 people) and it was very confortable. The hostel is very well situated in Sultanahmet, just a few hundred meters from Aya Sofia, the Topkapi Palace and many other cultural and turistic spots.... More
