Excellent place with very good location and breakfast included in the cafeteria underneath. It's amazing to have breakfast while enjoying the sun and what's going on in the street. I was there with a motorcycle and I parked it on the side of the door and had absolutely no problems. Staff is great and very helpful.

Nice hostel. A/C in room. I have a good sized single room. Good value. Breakfast is very basic. Some meat or eggs would not go amiss. Nice coffee. The bar is very pleasant and comfortable. Residents get a discount on food and drink.

Sultan Hostel is an incredible bang for your buck. The private room I stayed it was clean and comfortable. The staff are immensely helpful and nice and really care about their business. The breakfasts were great. All of this is provided at a very affordable rate.

I came to Istanbul for five days and wanted a mellow place to relax and overcome my jetlag. For the price, I could not have picked a better spot. The staff is great and you get a 10 percent discount in the restaurant. The breakfast wasn't great, but you could order something else most days. Great location. Would definitely recommend... More

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
