First of all, the location of Metropolis is great! Right next to Aya Sofia and Sultanahmet Camii, and it's also easy to reach the public transportation, even not far away to walk to Eminonu! Rooms aren't big but shall be enough for backpackers, and they DO have clean toilets. Breakfast on the Roof Bar is one of the most attractive... More

We had a good time at the Metropolis Guesthouse! Its a special, well located, little hostel owned by a friendly guy! Everything is really clean! On top of that: free WiFi and a BEAUTIFUL terrace with a great seaview and good breakfast!

Great breakfast, super clean, small rooms, and great location add up to an awesome value. I stayed here 5 nights and definitely recommend it. Only negative I can think of is the shower not having a decent place to put your stuff besides one hook (a pet peeve of mine)!

This is one of the most welcoming and enjoyable hostels that I have stayed at anywhere! The staff were all super friendly and wonderfully helpful, even when I did silly things like locking my key inside the room. I stayed here three different times throughout my Turkey trip (about 7 or 8 nights total). The beds were comfortable, it was... More

Initially I booked only 4 nights at Metropolis because I wasn't sure what I was going to do/where I might go. Two days in I decided to spend my whole trip (11 days only, sadly) in Istanbul, as there is so much to see/do. So I kept extending my stay. The staff is incredibly nice & helpful. They organized activities... More

This hostel is very close to the main attractions in Istanbul. After check-out, they keep nicely your luggage until 11.30pm free of charge. If you have no place to go while waiting for the bus or flight, you can sit down their roof bar with really reasonable drink and can chit chat with other travelers to exchange experiences in Turkey....
