“Amazing staff and clean hostel !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

Staff at this hostel are simply amazing, really helpful and nice. The rooms and showers are really clean, and you have quite a view from the rooftop bar - on Aya Sofia.
The location is perfect for people wishes to visit blue Mosque, Aya Sofia and the palace.

The best parts about this place are:
1. Super friendly owner and manager who will do everything for you. Really will plan anything for you and take care of you. Also will tell you the cheapest and most local ways to see Istanbul.
2. The view from the rooftop bar. Gorgeous.
3. Location. It's not in a party area at all. It's totally in the sightseeing tourist area. BUT cabs are cheap and most importantly it is near the tram and also near the ferry area. Way more variety of places you can get to than if you stayed in Taksim, for example

Overall great clean place. Definitely go.

Cheers hostel is just great.
Very nice, clean, in the heart of Istanbul but in a quite lovely spot... Plus a terrace with a beautiful view.
Really the best atmosphere...

The staff was very nice and helpful.

Perfect location and amazing staff. They get well out of their way to make you feel at home and help in any way they can. The bar is great as well as breakfast, which is probably the best I've ever had at a hostel.

Whenever I find my way back to Turkey, I'm certainly not staying anywhere else!

As this was my first time in Istanbul, I needed a few things. I needed a place that I felt comfortable in a great locatıon, with a fun atmosphere, and staff that gives great advice. All of thıs was found at Cheers Hostel! I could not imagine a better, more accommodating place. The staff went far out of their way (both literally and fıguratively) to make my trip to Istanbul incredibly special. I love Cheers Hostel--and I am very sad to leave but excited to come back. See you soon :)

Fantastic hostel! Came here as a solo female traveller and felt right at home. The guys running it are great and cant do enough for the guests. The rooftop bar has an incredible view of the Aya Sofya and is great to meet other travellers. Its very social and great if youre wanting to meet other people. Free breakfast is great too. Is in a good location close to all the touristy attractions.

I was a little apprehensive reading some of the other reviews about the Manager. Perhaps his manner is a little abrupt but I found him very helpful and pleasant during my stay. Planned to stay for 2 nights, and ended up staying for 4.

The rooms were clean, spacious and had an effective airconditioner, bathrooms were also clean and the toilets flushed.

Would highly recommend this hostel.

Amazing location ( sweeping view of Hajia Sophia from rooftop lounge/bar) , lively and familial atmosphere with an attentive,hospitable staff -- lots of great people pass through these doors and link up to explore istanbul / swap tips on other hot spots in Turkey. Wonderful breakfast included with the room price, and the bar get cracking every evening
