“Good location but poor staff”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

Good location in Asian part of Istanbul near the ferry terminal. Hostel quite new and clean. Our private room was clean but looked like warehouse - two or three mattresses aheap. Main light didn't work only bedside lamp.
The worst was than nobody was waiting for us even though the booking was confirmed. Host was absolutly suprised when we phoned them. At the beginning he even didn't want to speak with us - he said that it is to late (it was 9 p.m.) He came after one hour. We didn't see him to last day when he came to tell us that we should take back our backpacks earlier although I asked him and he said that we can leave it - he said that he lost 25 euro by us which was not true. It wasn't nice .
I hope it was only accident but after our trip when we came back to Istanbul we decided choose another hostel.

Great location, walking distance from ferries, supermarkets and trainstations. Great staff working with knowledge of English. Fans available and every floor has a common bathroom. Every floor has a little kitchen as well. Ideal if you travel in a group.

It is a great location for Kadikoy and you get ferry boat service to Prince's Islands (45min) and Europe side of Istanbul easily. Hosts are kind and try to meet any needs you might have. Stayed there nearly 2 weeks in June. They kept my luggage free off charge when I was traveling for a few days. Would come back.
