I have stayed in Chillout Lya many times. They have nice and quite rooms, bathrooms are clean, nice amenities. They offer breakfast in their bar. Bar is nice to have some drinks and chat with people. Staff is very respectful and friendly. Location is just good, you can walk in few seconds to istiklal street.

I would recommend this hostel if you came to Istanbul for a few days and you wish to stay in a very central place without paying hundreds of lira. Breakfast and air conditioner, free WIFI were great adds for the staying in Chillout Lya, also nice staff. However, hot water would also be a plus, but I guess there were... More

We have booked in for 3 nights in an ensuite double room. The street is a bit noisy but we had no problem sleeping. Breakfast was really good. The location is perfect. All the sights were within walking distance. Would definitely stay again.

I wish I have not read reviews on TripAdvisor before staying in Chillout Lya Hostel. My holiday appeared to be perfect, although the majority of comments here are extremely negative. It is not fair. Yes, it can be rather loud at nights, but it is a hardly a problem for those who have chosen to live in a nightlife-area. Yes,... More

Great location, nice staff, good breakfast but our room was small and unclean. The door of the bathroom didn't close. One of the windows was broken. People outside were shouting and drinking till 4 am. Hard to sleep,if you're not dead tired.

Room was little bit small, but it wasn't problem, because there was no reason to stay inside if you're exploring a town. Breakfest was great and unlimited;). Personal was very nice and helpfull. We thank them for nice time in this beautyfull babylon;)

Love being so close to Istikal street (shops, restaurants, bars with live music). Service staff provided warm respectful service. The breakfast buffet was good and runs till noon. The bed was hard (but not unreasonable for such low budget accomodation). My only issue was that I was there to sleep which is virtually impossible with the loud bar scene on... More

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighborhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
