Chillout Lya is following the typical chillout plan: "Buying an old building in Istanbul and slowly transforming it into a hostel"
The result is satisfying if you consider that it offers basic amenities. Every floor has 3 or 4 rooms and each floor is equipped with common bathroom and shower (both renovated and new, especially shower equipment is very nice).
I have tried the double room with ensuite bathroom. Room has a wardrobe, a table and chair, the bed and a heating device. Don't expect any kind of view from the room or special comforts. The room and the hostel generally, were clean and the staff kind and helpful.
If you are looking for a decent place where you can have some private and quiet time, it can be a good option.
