We travelled with another couple and booked 2 private double rooms in the adjacent building. Think it was approx £60 per night per couple. Our room looked onto the street and although had no air con (which we knew) it did have an electric fan tower which helped. Our friends room which had air con looked out onto an alley and did smell a bit of mold or mildew.
Rooms were ok, the usual for a hostel. Good base for all the sigths especially the old twon, and the roof top bar has an amazing view of the Hagia Sophia.
Tariq(?) the owner or manager was helpful and the staff in general were helpful. Breakfast was the same everyday but plenty of it and included in the price. Bread, cheese, olives, tomatoes and cold boiled eggs. The outside tables at the front were a nice place to eat breakfast.
Overall a good, cheap stay in the middle of Istanbul.
