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

The orient hostel is very well located, in walking distance to most touristic places, like the grand bazar and the Sophia Mosque. The rooms and bathrooms are well clean and the bed and pillow comfy. Breakfast is included and well served. The view on the top of the building is beautiful

The location is amazing, great staff and amazing tour prices and discounts! The bedroom is good, and the staff made us an upgrade to a better one... The bathroom is clean and have a good size. They offer transfers to both of the airports for really good prices...

Stayed in this hostel for almost 4 weeks. Nothing to complain of but only good reports. Comparatively with many hostels in town, this is a good value deal. The owner does know what how to run a hostel. Helpful and well informed staff. Anything you need from wanting a towel to renting cars and information of the land of Turkey,... More

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
