Was happy to be here! good staff, helpful, bed and tea and yes on top of all these; the location is at centre of Sultanahmet! a hub for most tourist from where you begin you journey to most places around.

Spent two nights and loved this place. The staff is cool and relaxed and the premises are definitely clean. For a very good price the location is also close to the centre and to a a beautiful park (especially in summertime).

I was booked to stay here 2 separate nights in the first week of April 2016. The first night, they were still open. The second night, they were closed indefinitely for renovation and all the mattresses were lying in a pile on the street. I'm not sure when they are scheduled to reopen.

Maybe a bit expensive for what you get, but not bad as low budget backpacker hostels go. Staff was friendly and helpful. View from the roof isn't too bad. Walking distance from everything you would want to see.

Came here last year as a backpacker looking for a cheap place to stay in central istanbul (which is no easy feat, especially without internet!). The room i got was great value, the bed was comfortable and the room was en-suite, though the bathroom wasn't clean, and the flush was broken when I stayed. Breakfast was included (albeit basic) on...

We book to stay at this "Hotel" during April 2013. Firstly we were very dispointed with this place as it was not a hotel, it was more like a B&B. If it was advertised like that maybe I wouldnt have been that disappointed. On a positive note, the room and bathroom were very neat and quite modern to my surprise....

In the last year I've stayed in over 50 hostels and this was in the bottom two - dirty, cramped room, unfriendly staff and unbeatable breakfast. For either the same price or just a little more, you could definitely find something better!

If you are expecting a minimum luxury you won't find it. Rooms are basic but clean. The breakfast is very basic and adequate - in fact this is the poorest breakfast I eaver had. However since the location is really nice and the guy at reception was good I am going to give a rating of 3 for this hostel.

We stayed in this hostel for a night, in a double room with a shared bathroom, after we had left a terrible 'hotel' we had booked. Even though it was late and we were desperate to find a place to stay, the manager gave us a very good price. The room was extremely basic but clean, the shared bathroom was...
