No doubt, this has been the best hostel ever. Also good location, service and value. Pleasant staff, which allows you to feel so welcome and desired... Awesome view on Hagia Sofia from rooftop bar, especially at night. The karma and specific energy you can feel it here, is so good, that they certainly convince You, to come back again. Good...

Really can't go wrong with this place. Super friendly and helpful staff (even if you have no idea how an airport shuttle works, like me), clean, affordable, great free breakfast, and warm and fun atmosphere. Steps away from the Haggia Sophia, easy walk to the Grand Bazaar. The bar on the top floor is also an excellent place to just...

Cheers is an incredibly good hostel. Perfect location, excellent rooms (clean / comfortable - with secure lockers too!), gorgeous roof terrace, and wonderfully kind, warm staff. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. Also try their related restaurant, Soul Kitchen. Fantastic meal that stood out amongst the dozens of really great meals we had in turkey.

The location of Cheers hostel is fantastic! Just few walks away from Hagia Sofia, Blue Mosque, Basilica Cistern, Hippodrome, the train station etc. Variety of breakfast was simple and healthy. Fresh fruits everyday and Tarık makes the best apple tea! Everyone is so hospitable here. Makes it so hard to leave this place!

I just spent a week at Cheers Hostel in Sultanameht and I can easily say that is ranks among my favorite hostels I've ever stayed in.

This hostel has a great vibe to it: the staff is awesome, kind, funny, helpful, etc. It was nice hanging out at the bar on the roof, and the bartender was a real sweetheart. The space up on the roof is great and has a nice view of Hagia Sophia. I also loved sitting outside sipping coffee in the morning....

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.
