Amazing location in the middle of istiklal. The staff are very friendly. Big rooms and worth the money we payed. The noise isn't much of a problem. Breakfast could be much better, since most of the food is not so much delicious and we keep on seeing the same food every day. No variety.

A cozy, very clean and budget hostel. Breakfast is simple and enough. Stable and strong hot water shower. The owner Sezai is very easy to hang out. I like the Pizza Vegas near hostel.

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.
