Absolutely brilliant hostel. Jonny in particular was spectacular highlight, a better barman can NOT be found. Friendly, quick and helpful do not begin to describe the excellent service this man can give! Whether it's 10am in the morning or 2 am at night, you can be assured jonny will be there to greet you with a smile! FANTASTIC.

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.

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
