Very good vegan Food. Small Place, very Alternative and authentic. Cool People, small menu. Fresh Food, Smiling faces. Little chaotic atmosphere but friendly and good feeling. We did not stay in the hotel but we bumped in the restaurant and visited it again the day after.

I stayed as a solo traveller in EcoIsthan and i was very delighted each day of my stay. Sonay, the owner, is one of the best people i've met in all of my travels. Very down to earth and has a good advocacy with being green and caring for the earth. She made sure that i was alright the entire... More

I stayed here because i wanted to explore Galata area and this hostel is perfect for that if you dont mind walking up a hill. The beds were comfortable and exactly like photos. However the terrace is being renovated, the tables are now part of a cafe serving vegetarian food in the evening, and the picture with the two couches... More

It was not easy to find veg friendly food in Istanbul. While walking around we stumbled across ecoisthan and were sooooooo grateful and pleased. We have been there 2 nights in a row so far. They have a set daily menu and it is great. A little hard to find and yes, it is on top of a steep climb.... More

We had a bit of trouble finding the hostel on our way into town but this was seriously was one of the BEST hostel experiences we have had during our travels. Lots of good vibes here with the owner treating you first as a friend and second as a client. Everyone who works here seems to be friends which makes... More

This is a clean and comfortable hostel-type lodging in an excellent location near the Galata Tower. Two families with teenagers shared an 8 person room for two nights and it worked out great. Staff was friendly; beds were comfortable; showers and wi-fi worked; air conditioning was good; price was right. Those with mobility issues should find somewhere else, as the... More

Istanbul was the last stop of my summer vacation and being out of money i decided to stay in a hostel. But I never expected this! It is hard to explain but the place has an amazing energy, very inviting and peaceful. The food was delicious, the people very responsive to every need; they took the time to talk and... More

The hostel has an excellent location right next to the Galata Tower. Supermarkets, cafés and restaurants can be found nearby and the tram station is not far away either. The employees are incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and functional. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hostel.

Nice, clean hostel and friendly, caring staff. Great with the terass on the roof, will be even better when the renovating is done. I also like that they have ecofriendly lamps that turn on only if there is movement, and also they make vegetarian food. Great location. Ask the staff, they know where to get the experiences!
