World house hostel is exactly how a hostel should be - friendly and relaxed place to meet other travellers, comfortable and great value for the money.
I stayed here for almost one week early July 2009 in a six bed room with shared bathroom (only 13 € per night!) and a balcony on the top floor of the house. From there we had a nice view to the Galata tower which is right next door.
The location is just perfect, in the center of the lovely Galata quarter: Only a few minutes by walk up to Tunel and the main shopping street with hundrets of bars and restaurants and also only five walk minutes down to Galata bridge that leads you to the basar and all the main sights.
A nice turkish breakfast is included (maybe a little late at 9.30am for city tours). In the evenings the small cafe area downstairs is a wonderful place to start your night trips or to simply watch the streetlife. There is a mosque next door but they didn't called for prayer in the morning.
Overall a great place to explore the fascinating city of Istanbul - thanks a lot for the nice time!
