For the price and location I can't complain. Weak wifi signal in my room. Very noisy live band that we could here pounding until 1am then got turned down until around 3am (Tuesday night). Location great next to Galata tower. Easy to get to boat and metro. Taksim high street nearby.

The room and the bathroom were so tiny that I couldn't dare to close the window fearing I might suffocate. The ceiling itself was a horror movie. Yes it has a great location but there are lots of other places to stay with a location like this which doesn't make you claustrophobic, unlike Galata Hostel-2

Excellent location, between Istiklal and the Golden Horn. Just off of a busy shopping street this cafe offered a haven of calm. Excellent selection, fantastic Turkish coffee and tea for reasonable prices as well as shisha and food. Would definitely recommend as a pitstop.

Nice hosts and fair price, in a very central location, but really dirty and in need of a better management. Some room were under repairs and we got a room full of the dust from the works. It won't have take much to vacuum the floor before we got there. Wifi is available only at the ground floor. The bed...

My wife and I were attracted to it because it was relatively cheap and the online pictures provided by management were relatively nice. When we arrived around 9pm, the person working placed us in a small room directly next to the front desk area. The man working at the desk had the television on loudly and was talking on his...

I spent there 3 nights in late November, 2014. The hostel was pretty clean and when we complain about something, they change it fast. The location is good, even if it was hard at the begining to find it. Very limited breakfast choices but I think it is normal for a relatively cheap hotel. No important complains. It would be...

Positive: close to Galata Bridge and Tower, tram, walking distance from the Süleymanye and Eminönü districts you might like to visit. The price is fair, but not the services. Wifi works quite ok. Negative: dirty - bot the rooms and the bathrooms in rooms / shared bathrooms. Forget the breakfast and the morning coffee, you better get out and eat...

At 10 pm it was an Odyssey to find it. When we finally arrived, we knocked the door and nobody was opening. After 10 minutes we had decided to try to find another place, and then a guy came out. At first he couldn't find out reservation (a private "deluxe" room), but when he finally did, he told us he...

excellent location near the tram and within walking distance from taksim and sultanahmed. very good breakfast, fast wifi at all floors and friendly staff. there is no elevator but it's fine if you stay on 1st-3rd floor, but not on 5th if you are not young.the matress was not perfect and the ceiling (on a 5th floor room) needs refresh.

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.
