Our room was quite small and poky, but clean. The hostel is on a quiet street just off the main tourist strip in Sultanahmet, and while we were there it had two travellers on staff who were friendly and had useful info about sightseeing and eating options. The breakfast was good (eggs/cereal/french toast), included in the rate, and was served on the roof of the building, which had panoramic views of the Marmara sea. A couple of minor drawbacks - our room was in the building next door to the main building, and we had to be let in by the reception person each time we wanted to get in. Also, the blanket provided wasn't really big enough for a double bed. Generally though Topdeck was good value for money and I'd stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The time for Istanbul is now, this is the city where you will come for one week and want to stay for one month. And there is no better place to stay than Topdeck Hostel! We are a small hostel, in the perfect location. With the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Topkapi Palace just seconds walk away from our hostel. We are also located close to great restaurants and bars, but far away enough so the noise doesn't reach us. From our rooftop terrace (plus some rooms) you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Marmara Sea & Asian shores! We have 24 hour reception and friendly fluent English speaking staff to answer all your questions and we can also show you around our beautiful city :) We hope you will be our guest. ... more less
