We stayed for 3 nights in the Nobel Hostel and it was an excellent choice.
First thing to note, its ubication, just steps away from the Blue Mosque and from Hagia Sophia, they allow you to travel to the most important tourist spots.
The staff is very helpful and friendly, they assisted us with many items.
The accomodation was very comfortable, clean, safe and tidy. At the terrace you can find good views about Bosforo and Mosques and you can spend time outside.
The breakfast was included and it was great. I would higly recommend this hostel in Istanbul.
We would definitely come back.

The receptionist was really nice and helpful. He showed us the map of the city and where the main attractions are. We bought at the reception desk a bus ticket (cheaper than if we would have done the booking on the website of the bus company!) to go to Cappadoccia and as we lost our booking ticket he made another one, for free ;-)
The room is really small but clean.
Breakfast is complete, and there is free fresh water fountain, which is very convenient.
The best is the rooftop terrace, with an awesome view on the Blue Mosque and the Bosphore!
The localisation is perfect.

Shuttle service was on time and no hassle.
Very friendly, helpful and reliable staff who were always willing to give recommendations which were always useful and gave us a good map.
Loved the turkish breakfast.
Dorm room was comfortable and had lockers and a fan. We stayed here in early july and the fan was fine, not too hot at all.
Also location was brilliant. 3 minute walk to the blue mosque, aya sophia and basilica cistern and bosphorus promenade. Infact everything is in walking distance. Not to mention the view from the terrace of the blue mosque and bosphorus.
I would stay here 3 days, any less is too short.
Also for any australians wanting to see gallipoli we used hassle free tours which picked us up from our door at nobel hostel and was great value.
Restaurant below (I think it is sofa café) was really good. And a discount for staying at nobel.

we did spent 4 nights in the hostel and had a very good time. Good people, good rooms good beds bathroom ok, good breakfast on the roof terrace. I do not understand the review of Peace 1967 at all. Stay out of Istanbul if you do not want a wake up by a Mosque, ( they are everywhere in the city) . Very near some important things to see. ( But do not miss the cistern and Chora church).

Room Tip: we had a room at street side, if you want to sleep early; get a room at the backside
