The location is perfect, it's easy to walk to all the main attractions of Istanbul. Accomodations are cleans and comfortables. Breakfast is good. The wonderful view of the Hagia Sofia from the bar upstairs makes this place special! :) Awesome staff, friendly,dynamic,smiling and always ready to help us!! Good ambiance at Cheers! If I go back to Istanbul, I will surely return and spend again few days over there!
Cheers!!

A wonderful location to see the old city of Istanbul. Amazing rooftop bar which is overlooking the Hagia Sofia! Extremely good value for money and a great place to meet other travellers. This is extremely good value for money and beats a hotel anyday for young and adventurous travellers! Within a short walk of major sites of Istanbul!

Room Tip: The higher rooms have a better view of the city

Tarik and the gang always remember me at Cheers Hostel, and are always so welcoming and friendly whenever I stay with them! Accomodations are right in the heart of old Istanbul, and everything is very close. Great view of the Hagia Sofia from the upstairs bar...I always have a great time at Cheers, and I am always sure to meet new and interesting people from all over the world...Very reasonably priced, a great value!
