Location is great - near the main tourist stuff and a view of the sea from the rooftop terrace. 10 minute walk from the nearest tram stop. Very clean. Friendly and helpful staff. Reception is manned 24 hours.

Basically all of the hostels in Istanbul are crap. This one has a nice feel with good views and helpful staff, although don't expect to be blown away by anything unique or interesting. Security is however not it's strong point, although the reception was always manned at the entrance.

Location is perfect. 2 of the best mosques within 5 minutes walking distance. Staff really helpful and flexible. Clean facilities. Although toilets uncomfortably cramped. Average breakfast. But dining room has spectacular view of the Bosphorus. Overall very enjoyable experience.

Broke my journey back to UK from Northern Cyrus with three day stay in Istanbul. Well worth the effort! Amazing buildings & sea front. Was able to get around more using my Brompton folding cycle, which created much interest & enabled me to see much more in time available. Orient Hostel well located in Sultanamet area for exploring old town.... More

Istanbul hostel is in a very great location. Just 5 mins walk from Hagia Sophia and 10 mins walk from "Sultan Ahmet" tram station. The view of the rooftop is beautiful and nice. Good for taking morning time there. The manager of the hostel is so hospitality. The price is reasonable when compare with what you get.

I was really happy with Istanbul Hostel. I stayed 6 nights in the 21 bed dorm room. It was actually really good for such a big room- quiet and didn't feel crowded. They even had ensuite toilets and showers which was unexpected but awesome. Really chill vibes here. There's a cool chill out area a floor below their restaurant where... More

The location of this hostel is really good. Literally meters from the Hagia Sofia and blue mosque. The staff are friendly, if not a little pushy for their tours (they run a travel agent out of the hostel also). The rooftop terrace is nice, a bit expensive... But you get a great view of the ocean at breakfast time or... More

Istanbul Hostel is located in a great spot, and the free breakfast is a great way to start the day for folks looking to save money. The staff was around whenever I needed help with something, such as purchasing water. I stayed in the 9 person room and met some great people staying there. The only down side were the... More

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.
