Cool chilling area where you can meet other travelers, smoke shisha and they have their own cafe downstairs with a range of drinks and food and always a good vibe. I kept extending my stay here because I felt at home and relaxed as a solo traveller. Great location with endless things to do. Good value for money, including breakfast... More

This was second time in same place. Very helpful staff. They arranged an wonderful tour in Cappadocia, Pummakhale and Selcut with a very reasonable price. Absolutely no complain about the total stay with them and the tour they arranged.

Prime location, friendly and helpful staff, and great rates with amazing all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet! 360 degrees views from the rooftop terrace, the Bosphorus to the east and the heart of old Istanbul with the Blue and Pink (Aya Sofia) mosques, are quite spectacular and a privilege! Sip your favorite beverage and chill!

The staff would go extra mile to help you out. Much advised. I have also spent lovely time talking to staff downstairs in the restaurant over a beer. Very nice people who made my stay here special! Very much advised location as it is very close to major attractions.

Wonderful location, just a stone's throw from Topkapi Pallace, etc etc. Open 24/7, with its own restaurant and bar, plus an upstairs breakfast room and rooftop terrace with sensational views - this is not your average hostel! Especially helpful and knowledgeable staff who readily book shuttles,etc. Some rooms are minuscule in size, while others can suffer noise problems, depending on... More
