Nice hostel in a good location close to the blue mosque. The rooftop terrace has a great view. The area is nice and quiet. You can't beat the price in Istanbul and the staff is very friendly and helpful.The only downside was that the beds were not the most comfortable (you could feel the springs when you lie down). Overall for a budget hostel it was well worth it.

Room Tip: They all seemed decent, not really any bad ones.

nobel hostel is great place to stay in istanbul. the most important thing is the location. it's in the heart of the istanbul and in a highly historical area. while i was there i never had transportation problems. plus the crew of the hostel were real nice and helpful to us. i honestly recommend this sweet place to anyone who wants to visit istanbul. loves from nyc.

We booked 2 nights in Nobel Hostel but it was so good that we extended our stay to 5 days. The place is really great: location is perfect (very close to the biggest atractions, and trams), it's really clean, has good breakfast and staff is extremly helpful (any advice they gave us - was a good choice)
If you stay there try their restaurant next door - Sofa Cafe. Food is really good.
When I come back to Istanbul I'll definitely stay there.

Spent 2 nights at Nobel. Was meant to be 3, but there was a mixup and they did not get our booking for the first night. They admitted it was their fault though and put us up in another hotel. The second hotel wasnt as good, but it was the only one with room that night - and they paid for the first night for us.

Once we got settled at Nobel though, have no complaints for the price. Room was clean, but basic. We shared a bathroom which was ok, although it got grimy after everyone used it. Although our room faced the road and were only on the 3d floor, the room was quiet when you closed the windows (still woke up to the morning prayer - but that's basically a constant for Turkey). There's a basic roof top terrace which has a good view of the blue mosque (but not the hagia sophia). Found the breakfast to be good but simple. The street the hotel sits on is full of bars and restaurants - all catering to tourists, but at least gives you places to go. The hotel is also very close to the blue mosque and hagia sophia and pretty close to public transportation.

All in all - happy with our stay.
