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.

I would definitely recommend this hostel to any traveler. It is very affordable with strategic location to many tourists attractions. It is very close to main attractions like Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, and etc. You can also see lots of restaurants/bars nearby. The staff are so nice and helpful and they are definitely good in speaking English. The staff are also very well versed about the places to visit, the cost, and the best way to get to the places. They even helped me to book for cab going to airport though it was very last minute request. All in all, totally worth place to stay

Firstly the Staff was excellent ! They took the time to show us a map of Istanbul and what we could do. Which was of great help. The rooms I must stay was better then some of the hotels we stayed in in Istanbul. Well Done !

Booked a private room for myself, get a private room with 3 beds! :)) I love the location and the staff. They had this volunteers helping them with admin stuff and I found it very good! Breakfast is enough, not plenty but hey, you can find places to eat outside as well so it's not a big deal for me. And oh, Little Jay the cat is super cute! ;3

My friend and I were traveling to Turkey for our friends wedding and decided to stay a few days in Istanbul to see all the tourist attractions. Mansion by Cheers came up as the top hostel to book on HostelWorld and we can see why! We had a warm welcome from the owners, Emre & Emily, their staff and the little kitty and were offered Turkish tea on the spot. Unfortunately the hostel had been fully booked by the time we arrived but they generously upgraded us to their new hotel that had been built down the road for NO extra charge! The hostel was in a perfect quiet spot just minutes away from all the tourist attractions (we walked to all of them on the first day) and had a whole street full of restaurants one block away. The owners also decided to have a BBQ with all the guests on our second night which was an awesome way to meet everyone and discover some Turkish cuisine. We can't thank them enough for helping us feel at home and providing everything we could have needed. I would love to come back one day and maybe even work there ;D Big shoutout as well to the staff, especially Erin and Atila - you guys were amazing, they are lucky to have you!!
