I stayed here because my friend refered me here, and it was amazing! They have delicious food, ottomon cuisine was my favorite and the guys are really nice to hang out with. I spent more time hanging out the people there than going out. Quite an experience, definately going back.

The Turkish sense of humour was apparent in our initial dealings with the guys, (which initially made us a little cautious in our first visit to Istanbul), and after some chats and exchanges we grew to find the staff really great hosts and very generous of spirit. The room was modern and suited our needs - the aircon slightly leaked... More

We stayed here for the first three nights before travelled to another city, by far this place was the best & amazing place. Staff was very polite and helpful. 2 mints walk away from all the tourist attraction and bazaars. I would definitely recommend to everyone 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍

We stayed here for 4 nights after staying at another hostel in Istanbul and we couldn't have been happier. We stopped in for dinner one night, and our host, Victor, sat with us for dinner and his graciousness and great food and great staff convinced us to switch. We were going to leave Istanbul, but because we loved this hostel... More

Comfortable, friendly, perfectly located. We have stayed here twice, in October 2012 and again in November 2014. They really make you feel welcome and are very helpful and accommodating. We will be back.

This place beyond exceeded our expectations! The friendly and genuine staff make this place feel like home. Our double room was lovely, modern and great value. Bed was comfortable and we always slept well. You can hear the call to prayer in the morning, which is all part of the Turkish experience! You couldn't get any closer to the Aya... More

The new backpackers was in a prime spot in Sultanahmet, easy walking distance to the main tourist attractions cistern basilica, hagia sofia, blue mosque and grand bazaar. Our room was quite big and air con worked well, however it was really loud at night because it was over the street, but after long tourist days we slept ok. The staff... More

This hotel/hostel has an incredible location from all the historic landmarks. The staff is very friendly and I emphasize VERY because they really are especially with women. But still it was a very pleasant experience and this was my second time in this hotel. The cafes and restaurants around will surely keep you busy.

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.
