“great place for a budget stay in old town Istanbul”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2011

I was evacuated from Cairo and randomly picked up this one for my one night stay in Istanbul. I was surprised to find out that this stay was a very nice one. location is just right, you can walk to some of the major attractions in old town. the room and beds were clean and well set. Free Internet (and net-book PCs) were another convenient and breakfast is just great! I did not get time for enjoying pipe smoke this time. Strongly recommend for budget travelers.

The Moonstar Hostel is just great! Clean rooms and beds, nice staff and nice hostel keepers, there is also a yammie breakfast every day...just amazing and this for a very fair price!
The place is right next to the main attractions(like 2 minutes walking), right on the restaurants street, very secure. The breakfast includes a slice of a really nice cheese, bread, Turkish tea or coffee, boiled eggs, olives, tomatoes, cucumber, salami and so on.
The rooms have air conditioned, shower inside, bathroom outside...nice place, nice people.
Thanks again! We had a great time!
