First, there are two basic places where the hotels & hostels are. One is the Sea of Marmara side of the tram (T1) tracks (same side as Blue Mosque/hippodrome), and the other on the golden horn side (same side of the tracks as the grand bazar). From maps, you can not tell the difference. when we arrived in Isanbul we stayed on the marmara side. Don't do it. It is dark and steep, and not much there.
City hostel is in a excellent location. Bright, and right in the center of it all.
It is a dorm hostel, but it is clean. I saw them clean. They do an excellent job. Nice people.
