“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

We stayed in a 4 beds mixed dorm with sea view for 4 nights. Great rooftop view. Friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast which was included in room price. Great location, just 5 minutes walk to Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, and tram station. Free wifi. A lot of nice restaurants nearby.

The air conditioner didn't work so well in our room. Good location and very close to blue mosque Reasonable price. Cute staff. Perfect for student-travelers. Free breakfast. The room is very clean. Private lockers in the dorm.

We stayed for 3 days at Antique hostel.as a family of four. It is actually more of a pension than a traditional hostel. We really enjoyed the stay. It was quiet, we liked it. All services were sufficient. Reception, restaurant, cleaning, internet, making bookings for us, etc were done very well. It is really in the heart of the tourist area, you can walk anywhere and there are literally 100s of restaurants to choose from within walking distance. Highly recommended. We will stay again.

Private room was awesome and reasonably priced- and had wifi, air conditioning, and a private balcony. Great location--although it is tricky to find from the train station the first time because the streets aren't clearly marked/don't all go through. Nice and helpful staff. Free breakfast and cafe/lounge has great views, plus great rooftop view. You can leave your luggage there and hang out in the common areas after checkout if you have a later bus/flight out of Istanbul.

Nice and helpfull staff, a terace with a nice view of the see (where you can go with your own drinks), 24 hour reception, clean rooms and great location. For us it was perfect... we wanted to be close to everything we wanted to see.

- Behind the hostel street filled with restaurants and coffee shops.
- The distance from sultanahmet metro (tram) station to the hostel is 500 meters.
- Does not have a private locker for each guest room in the dorms.

the rooftop view, availability of beds for late check-in even in high-season, as well as the well-assorted breakfast makes Antique hostel my favourite in Sultanahmet. I´ve been stopping by here for several years.

Room Tip: ask for room no 13
