We were so thrilled to have found the Big Apple Hostel, which is located right in the center of the Sultanahmet district. Despite its insistence that it is a "party hostel" it was really clean and relatively quiet (of course, my friend and I were in the all-female dorm) ...but if you want a crazy night on the town, the proprietors are happy to arrange one for you -- and the staff will even go along and dance! Their (typical Turkish) breakfast is quite good, with plenty of food; it's definitely better than the average hostel fare. The best part of the hostel is its wonderful terrace, which has a sea view and great prices on drinks (we recommend the Efes, a Turkish beer). We made many new friends on that terrace during our stay (6 nights). Clean hostel, free wifi, free breakfast, good people and friendly staff -- what else do you need??
