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.

I've stayed in hundreds of hostels over the years, and no doubt this is one of the best. Incredible location, great friendly staff, clean rooms and facilities, and excellent chef-run rooftop restaurant. All at a great price! Zero complaints.

We were in a private double bedroom and everything was very pleasant. It was clean and tidy. When we arrived the staff was friendly and very welcoming,they helped us a lot. But the surprise was when the night came and we decided to go upstairs for a beer. We met the Chef who was an extraordinary person and also a fantastic cook. We stayed for dinner and it was the BEST meal we had in the entire city! Super recomendable! Thanks for everything!

Great location in the heart of the old town: Sultanahmet. The staff were helpful pre-arrival and whilst I was there, hooking me up with another traveller who wanted to go watch some football. Each dorm comes with a locker for your valuables. The free breakfast is very tasty and plentiful. The common area is comfortable and there is usually and intrepid traveller there to talk with. The shared shower and toilet facilities are kept clean. I found out that the hostel were charging 10 euros a night cheaper than what I had paid when I booked, for the same room. Felt robbed. If you have an early flight or late arrival, getting to the hostel is not straightforward. In this case, you may want to consider alternative arrangements for first/final night in Istanbul.

Room has a mini refrigerator which is the first time I’ve seen in all dorm type rooms I’ve stayed. They also have an adapter available for 3 prong chargers. Room has air conditioning as well. Its a 5-10 minute walk to most tourist spots like Hagia Sophia and blue mosque. Breakfast is really good too 👌🏻Staffs were helpful. Also room is cleaned daily and bathrooms and toilets’ cleanliness are maintained 👌🏻👌🏻
