Very good vegan Food. Small Place, very Alternative and authentic. Cool People, small menu. Fresh Food, Smiling faces. Little chaotic atmosphere but friendly and good feeling. We did not stay in the hotel but we bumped in the restaurant and visited it again the day after.

I stayed here because i wanted to explore Galata area and this hostel is perfect for that if you dont mind walking up a hill. The beds were comfortable and exactly like photos. However the terrace is being renovated, the tables are now part of a cafe serving vegetarian food in the evening, and the picture with the two couches...

It was not easy to find veg friendly food in Istanbul. While walking around we stumbled across ecoisthan and were sooooooo grateful and pleased. We have been there 2 nights in a row so far. They have a set daily menu and it is great. A little hard to find and yes, it is on top of a steep climb....

We had a bit of trouble finding the hostel on our way into town but this was seriously was one of the BEST hostel experiences we have had during our travels. Lots of good vibes here with the owner treating you first as a friend and second as a client. Everyone who works here seems to be friends which makes...

This is a clean and comfortable hostel-type lodging in an excellent location near the Galata Tower. Two families with teenagers shared an 8 person room for two nights and it worked out great. Staff was friendly; beds were comfortable; showers and wi-fi worked; air conditioning was good; price was right. Those with mobility issues should find somewhere else, as the...

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.
