Located in the very heart of Istanbul, Cheers hostel offers cozy rooms, high level of hygiene, great breakfast and best Turkish coffee :) But there's so much more than meets the eye!

I had a great stay at Cheers Hostel. It is in a great location, just a block from everything you want to see but also in an area with some privacy away from the noise- and with great views from the top floor. The dog is famous and so so sweet but the hostel workers are even cooler and will... More

My mom and I stayed at this hostel for three nights. Our first trip to Turkey. We absolutely loved our stay! Tariq and Ahmed and all the staff were amazing, friendly, helpful and very welcoming. Felt like a home away from home. The room was perfect. The breakfast and coffee was great. And close proximity to all the old city... More

I visited at a time when there wasn't a lot of guests at the place, but the staff, Sinan and Ahmed kept the place interesting. Ahmed made me a drink when I was one of two people in the... More

How do I sum up my experience in Istanbul? Well absolutely fantastic! And mostly because of the fantastic staff at Cheers. Truthfully I was a bit scared to visit. Like almost everyone else. But I've always wanted to go and I wasn't going to let bad press stop me from experiencing the beauty of Turkey. You could get hit by... More

Central location: walking distance to major attractions, near a good tram stop, food, shopping, ferry... clean rooms and baths, great roof top bar (view on the Aya Sofia!), and very kind people. One evening I was sick, the hostel staff (Sinan, great guy, thank you!) went to the corner store for me, made me a nice cup of tea and... More

After a series of wild problems getting to and even in Turkey, I needed a very inexpensive place to sleep, relax and recharge for the rest of my journey. Cheers was the perfect spot! I had a nice clean room to stay in, an amazing roommate and a very helpful down to earth staff. Looking back it was truly one... More

First time was so epic, I'm back for the second time! Perfectly located, in the heart of Sultanahmet. Beautiful rooftop terrace bar looking onto the Hagia Sofia. Staff are friendly, and the breakfast is healthy and filling!! Rooms and facilities always clean.

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.
