I stayed in Sultan's hostel during my visit to Istanbul last month and it was definitely one of the best hostels I cam across during my stay in Turkey. The location is brilliant - a stone's throw away from not only the tram stn. but also the major sightseeing highlights (Topkapi, Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Hoppodrome, Byzantine Cistern). The road in front is peppered with nice restaurants and bars. The rooms were well heated and clean and the best of all - the bathrooms were sparkling!
The first day we got a pretty small room but when we requested a change they gave us something nice with a sea view with absolutely no fuss! On our last day in Turkey, when we were back in Istanbul and had half a day to kill before our flight - they even let us keep their luggage with them even though we were not staying there anymore. The guys at the hostel were really sweet and friendly and I would love to go back and stay there again!
