The staff at this hostel are really friendly and helped me so much during my stay here. There was an amazingly kind lady from Iran who made me feel so welcome. The rest of the staff were top class too including Hasan, Alim, Reza and Ramin. Fully recommend this hostel! Excellent customer service.

I stayed there twice, once it was private room, another time shared dorm 4 persons! It's super clean and nice located, as well as cozy, good breakfast, lovely terrace and friendly stuff. The bathrooms are clean and modern as well and very nice decorated I felt very good there. Later I met some other travelers with whom I planned evening and at the beginning we were drinking on their terrace. The price was not the cheapest but comparing what you get - absolutely normal. So, I recommend!

The Hostel is super clean. The Staff is super friendly and nice. very helpful and well-mannered. The Location is very close to Taksim ( just a 10min walk). The people i shared the room with were amazing There's a massive terrace on the 6th floor, they serve the breakfast over there and the view is breath-taking the breakfast is good, though, it can be better ( the options are a bit limited) I'd choose this place whenever i go to Istanbul because its super close to the airport buses and very good for the price you pay

The staff were so kind to us and the guests were also very chatty - we met people at breakfast and hung out on the roof top in the evenings. The building is beautiful and very well maintained. Our room was compact but clean and there was also a really nice big window.

Bunk location is very near to whatever you are looking for starting from airport shuttle (havabus) which is 5 min away by walking, taksim square and istiklal street almost the same. Metro station also is there if you want to check other locations... Check-in: if you are arriving early morning unfortunately you will not be able to do an early c/in u need to wait until 3pm. Checkout: at 11 Am. Housekeeping: Everyday around 10 Am. Breakfast: Nice breakfast if you are staying less than 5 night, more then that it will be boring (from 8 Am to 10 Am). Rooftop: is a very nice terrace with good music all day until 12 midnight.(if they can make untill 2 or 3 Am that will be awesome). Last and not least I would like to give a big thank you to Salim from reception for being very polite also Rami for the great smile everyday, the two females from Houskeeping they can't speak well english but still they are very approachable. Finally shootout to the reception manager which I had a big argument with him regarding my booking but in the end he solved out the miscommunication which happened.

the good location (near Taksim) and friendly staff make #bunk one of the best in town. But DO NOT EXPECT GREAT AMENITIES here. Just try to enjoy what you find here: a very nice terrace with a beautiful view, rooftop bar with a pub crawl, a chill place, and in in a fairly quiet street just a short walk from busy Taksim Square.
