We booked 2 bed in a triple room. Staff took into account our wish that in the room was only for women. We book 3 nights, in fact spent there only 2. Very difficulty got our money back for a third night - the administrator said million reasons why he wont return our money, but when our Turkish friends come... More

Chill out location and atmosphere are very good. We stayed 4 nights in a three-beds dorm room. On the first morning one of us was all bitten by what appeared to be BED BUGS. We changed room immediately however the whole experience was unbearable. Please do not book at this BED & BUGS INN !

Found this hostel by accident and was very pleasantly surprised. Location is close to the bar area, the lounge is great for hanging out, staff is very helpful. The rooms are basic, but exactly what one expects from a hostel. Only negative aspect is that there is no elevator. Would definitely go there again!

If you want to follow up to concerts, this is your place! They let customers about events. Also they have always clean sheets and hot water. On the other hand, place is middle of Taksim. For that you have chance to reach everywhere in Istanbul.

It was our mistake to choose the Beyoglu area carring the backpacks. This area is on the hill. But finally we found this hostel. Many hostels around were busy. Our room was in the highest floor. And there is no lift. So it's hard enough to move up with backpacks. The dorm for 6 person was very small. So it... More

My friend and I stayed here for one night because we wanted to try out the Taksim area of Istanbul. We didn't like the area as it was just a big city and full of people, much more that the old town. We felt the old town had more of a vibe to it and liked it much much better.... More

We booked two single rooms with chillout, for 5 nights from NYEve, only to be told 10 days later that they were overbooked and could no longer offer us the single rooms. This was very annoying as most other places are now booked. Why say you have rooms available if you havent? Come on Chillout, its not difficult - you... More

We had a double room for a week. It was pretty hot ( 30 degrees at night), but after the first night ventilators were installed and that was a releive. Don't expect to much for this kind a money, you have a bed to sleep and a shower, that's it. And the people are so kind and helpfull, just ask... More

Aside from the price and location, this place was awful. It's obvious no one associated with the place cares at all about creating a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. The rooms were stuffy, hot, and barely big enough to open the doors in. The lighting on the staircases was terrible (borderline dangerous), there is absolutely no atmosphere, and the staff is not...
