Nice rooms, small, clean, good shower- all you need for exploring Istanbul. Very close to Hagia Sophia and other attractions. Staff were always helpful and breakfast on the terrace was a great start to the day.

I was traveling with a friend who has a jewish family name and during check-in the staff (or owner??) made some really rude and unwarranted remarks about jewish people, to which my friend just ignored. Then when I asked about what time is breakfast, he laughed and asked "You want rice? chicken feet?" (I'm half-asian). Needless to say we immediately... More

Stayed here while backpacking in Europe. I found the staff extremely helpful and the daily breakfast included was great. The rooftop was totally amazing! The location was great for exploring the city and major sites.

Great location, very close to the major sites and in a quiet street. Very clean dorm and shared bathroom, breakfast is ok. Food is really expensive though, so I would suggest to go to another area. Staff is not particularly helpfullexcept if you are a woman traveling alone... all things considered, not a bad place to stay.

We chose Metropolis Hostel because of it's location, and it certainly doesn't disappoint in that regard with Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, Roman Cisterns, Topkapi Palace, etc., etc., etc. just a few steps away. The hostel itself is simple and clean. The roof terrace has a great view and is a nice place to have breakfast or an afternoon... More

I've been there for three nights in a room for 4 people and I recomend. The location is really good, also good turkish breakfast. The balcony, as too much balconies in SultanAhmet give you a really nice view in the morning. Have your breakfast looking the bosforto. Later, just walk for 5 minutes to arrive in the heart of touristic... More

Room and bathrooms are all newly renovated with electronic key cards on the doors. Everything is cleaned daily kept in good condition. The bathrooms do smell... More
