We have been travelling for over a month now and stayed at a lot of hostels and this was the worst so far. The staff service was hot and cold. There is only 1 bathroom for more that 16 ppl!!!! 1 toilet and 1 shower together. Not even separated. It was a fight to have a shower in the morning.... More

Pros: air con, clean, tasty breakfast, really good location, laundry service down the road. Cons: inconsistent Wifi, water not free (but tea and coffee are ?!) and sensor lights in the bathroom which mean you have to do this weird dance thing in the dark every 30 seconds or so.

I booked this hostel based on the good reviews it had received on the hostel bookers website. I wasn't disappointed. We had scheduled a shuttle to pick us up ahead of time at the airport. They were there waiting with a sign. Upon arrival we had a quick check in and were shown to our rooms. They were of adequate... More

Great place. We had everything we needed there : comfortable room, quiet athmosphere. Extra services also were offered. We went to the turkish bath recommanded by the hotel and we had a great time. The transport to and from the bath was organized by the hostel. Location is of course great, walking every morning between Hagia Sofia and the Blue... More

Pretty convenient location for a hostel, and wait 'till you see the fantastic Bosphorus view from the roof top terrace! Friendly staff and great service, I'd absolutely wanna stay here if I come back to Istanbul. And it's all for a very reasonable price.

After scouring the Lonely Planet guidebook and the internet for a budget friendly option in Istanbul, we decided on this one, and were glad that we did! The staff was very helpful and accommodating, letting us eat breakfast upon our early morning arrival for free even though we weren't checked in yet! We were able to store our bags, and... More

Excellent hostel with great staff and lovely rooftop terrace. Only small problem was no kitchen to cook for yourselves and no washing machine. Location is brilliant, in a quiet area that's only 2 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque. Bathrooms and bedroom were very clean. We had a private double room with plenty of space in it. Had the comfort... More

We booked a 4-bed room. We can barely open our suitcases and pack our stuff. Apart from the size of the room, others are fine especially for the roof bar.

Very happy with the accommodation. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. Small rooms and small building but very friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and very good location. The roof terrace is lovely with wonderful views across the river. I would strongly reccommend.
