We stayed at the Galata West for 3 nights and we were very happy. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The bathrooms were a bit small but always kept very clean. The staff was more than helpful. We were traveling with bikes and they were more than happy to help us store and look after the bikes. They also helped with sight seeing questions and even taught us how to make Turkish Cay!!
The location was also great! It was just a short metro ride to the Blue Mosque and the bazaars. I really liked that it wasn't in the heart of everything, it made the hostel very peaceful and relaxing.
I would recommend this hostel to anyone planning on visiting Istanbul.
