I stayed at Hush with my boyfriend for 4 days at the beginning of February, and another 2 days in June. Hush is actually one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Rooms are great, breakfast is good, bathrooms are exceptionally clean. There is a well-stocked kitchen to cook in, and a really lovely terrace in the back where you can eat and drink. It is on the Asian side of the city (the one and only hostel here), and staying here will give you a much better sense of what the city is all about. There is an incredible produce/cheap goods market Tuesdays and Fridays which someone can point you to, lots of good places to go for raki and mezes (cheaper than the same sorts of places in Beyoglu) and a ton of fun, laid back bars to party at until late. Better yet, you won't be tripping over other tourists! It is one beautiful ferry ride away from the other parts of the city; ferries stop running around eleven, but you can take a dolmus from Taksim any time of day or night.
The best part about Hush, though, is the staff. They are all super warm and welcoming, and they know their stuff when it comes to the city. We miss them already!
