We met some very interesting people here and had some good laughs over breakfast. The owners are always willing to help. The location is also excellent, in quite a trendy area...

This hostel is located in a residential neighbourhood and it was nice to see the local life once I stepped outside the hostel. It's near to cafés, nice stores and the Galata Tower. Plus, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I didn't feel so safe there since anyone could go in or out without identification nor any kind of...

I cannot reccomend this place enough. It really made my stay in Istanbul perfect. The staff was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. Everything was remarkably clean and working properly. The breakfast was delicious toast with various spreads as well as freshly sliced tomatoes and cucumbers. There was always fresh coffee and tea. I met a lot of really cool people...

I enjoyed my time here very much, the room was cozy but there was only just another girl in a 8bed room... so the hostel was quite empty. I liked that I could come and go as I pleased, that everything was near, the free wifi... and that I could buy some nice fruits in the market and eat it...

I had such a wonderful time in this hostel. The workers were very friendly and inviting, they gave me tours all around the city and showed me a lot of stuff about Turkish culture. Every night they would give me free nargile, or water pipe and we would speak for hours. It was a very laid back atmosphere with an...

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.
