“the worst place ever!”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

we came to Istnanbul just for few days and checked room avaliabilty half an hour before our arrvial at Taksim. Because the room we were interested in was avaliable, we decided not to book it. When we got to the taksim hostel we'v been told there are no rooms at all, which after longer coversation turned out as lie. decided to stay for 4 nights we had to pay in advance!!! the lady at the desk seemed to work as a kind of punishment, was arrogant and the most unpleasent person we met in Turkey!! For a group of four they gave us only one key, another one for extra 5 tl deposite (we slept on a 5 ppl dorm). Service here is aweful, after they charge you, they don't care about you! rooms are dirty, bed linen prop not changed after previous user, with the ciggaret smell everywhere, shared bathrooms on the corridor is a kind of mistake, very dirty and disgusting, with no toalet paper at all. breakfast (extra 5tl) seems to be a joke (1 egg, bread, mini jam, mini butter, 2 slices of tomato and cucumber+tea). to sum it up: if you have other option, don't stay here!
