Friendly staff and great location but had to pay for small safe to lock my wallet and passport in otherwise no lockers or anything--luggage room didn't even have a lock on it. Also, there was only one key per room so for an eight person dorm, the door basically ended up being unlocked the entire day.

Me and my friend stayed in this place for 5 night october 2011. We booked this place because it was cheap and situated near all the sights in the old center. It definately was what we expected of it. The rooms were quite large but nothing special. A simple breakfast is served every morning and there is wifi avalilible in the lobby. The staff was helpful.
So definately a good place to stay in Istanbul when your on a budget. When we would go again we would probably stay in the part of Istanbul north of the river because in the old centre around 11 pm all the bars en restaurants close.

For the price, it offers clean rooms, fantastic showers, and a great location. However the communal areas aren't very comfortable (not warm in winter) and the wifi dropped in and out. I would though stay here again next time in Istanbul

Cordial House is a good choice if you are looking for a clean, cheap, cordial and good located place in Istambul. The hostel is close to the main attractions (Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar and Aya Sofia) and public transportation. The manager Tugrul is very friendly and also offers good deals to Capadocia tours.
