I had a great 6-night stay at Levanten Hostel this week. The staff is so kind and helpful (it seems like they never sleep!) and give good suggestions for both touristy and off the beaten path activities around Istanbul. The combination of the location and the price make Levanten unbeatable.

I was really happy to stay there... Very central location made it easy to explore the city of Istambul. Our host Diren was lovely, always willing to make us a cup of tea or to answer million of our questions. The room was bright and tidy, the bathroom was kept clean, we got towels at the arrival and were allowed... More

Sure this hostel could use a lick of paint, remember its not a Hotel,they keep it clean, it's secure and staff are very helpful.I've visited others in the Taksim square area and I think this is the better one! The location is perfect with a 10 minute... More

Same as the other reviews. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Nicest people I met in a hostel. However, it was really cold in the bathroom, we were there end of December in the winter season. Its hard to take a bath although there's no problem with the hot water. My friend took the bed near the window and was... More

These guys should invest a little bit to be able to provide hot water to its guests. There is a warning to shut down the heater before taking a shower. THIS DOESNT WORK GUYS. Every time you take a shower, electricity in the whole hostel goes down, and you find yourself wet inside the shower with -4 Celsius degrees. Probably... More

This is a good place to stay in Istanbul. It is very close to Taksim Square, so the location is excellent. The staff are also very kind and helpful. Rooms are nothing special, but if you're staying at a hostel that is probably not a problem.

Don't let the pictures fool you, although the staff are very pleasant and helpful, this place is not good. The rooms have no air conditions/heating. Everything is old, rundown or broken. I would never return to this place.

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.
