Staying at the GreenHouse was the best part of my trip to Istanbul. Talat and Anna were great super helpful hosts, making me feel at home. It is very easy to meet other travelers there. A fresh and delicious breakfast is available every morning in a nice dining area that makes it easy to get to know the other guests. At night it turns into a fun place to listen to music and dance if you are in the mood. I was lucky to find this hostel. I would recommend the Green House to everyone. I will be going back in September and looking forward to seeing Talat again and meeting more guests from all over the world.
I love this place!"

Room Tip: If you want to meet people stay in the dorm.

Solo traveller, stayed for 3 nights in April 2013 in their double room which was on the top floor. Small room with comfortable double bed with clean, warm Doona. Room had heating, Reverse cycle A/C and lockable small cupboard. Very quiet and I slept very well.
Toilet was 1 floor down and shower was 2 floors down. Shower was very small, over a toilet, however there was plenty of hot water. Although shared bathrooms and toilets, they were kept reasonably clean, however they are very small and it was difficult for me to navigate the steep stairs at night.
Talut and Anna were both very helpful and friendly. Talat answered all my Emails promptly when I was planning my trip, and on arrival and departure, helped me with my bags. Anna also arranged a friend to help me and my baggage to the airport bus in Taksim.
Breakfast was basic, with bread (and condiments), cheese, cucumber, tomato , some cold meats. and Coffee or Tea. Fee internet including PC's for anyone to use. Lounge/breakfast room had big TV.
The highlight of this hostel was the comfortable warm bed and the friendly staff.

Room Tip: Steep stairs so top rooms may not be well suited to older people or anyone with a disability.

I stayed at the Green House for about five days and truly loved my stay there. The hostel's owner is a nice, welcoming and helpful man who loves his hostel and cares about everyone who stays there - even if it's only one night. The locationi is great and walkable to Taksim or the main shopping street as well as to the Metro that can get you wherever you want. The dorms are always clean and comfy as well as the bathrooms and the kitchen. It is really a great place if you travel alone or with your friends/ family and feels like a little home away from home.

Room Tip: If you're female then try the female room.

I stayed at Green House for five nights when I had originally only intended on staying one. The staff at Green House goes out of the way to make sure that you have everything you need. You'll find that you get a whole lot more than just directions and suggestions on where to eat. Clean, great location that is close to Taksim square, and a fantastic atmosphere. I would recommend Green House to anyone. I was traveling alone and when I would return to the hostel at night I felt like I was returning to a friend's house. Talat and Anna are the absolute best.

Green House Hostel is definitely the place to be in Istanbul.The staff takes care of all your needs with warm turkish hospitality.From the very beginning it felt like staying at a friends place,with full service of a hotel. Feeling safe and welcomed was very important for me,since i was travelling alone.They help you with sightseeing,provide tea,water and wifi and so much more.The rooms are clean and nice,the turkish breakfast is simple but delicious and the location is close to Taksim square,which was perfect for me. The highlight was my visit in hamam,which was arranged by the Hostel,for a price you don't get somewhere else.The Hostel is quiet and relaxing ,but if you want to in for party,the staff also assists you with that.I will definitely come again,because i already miss my new home in Istanbul :) Thanks to Talat and Anna and the rest of the staff for a perfect stay.

We have spent couple of wonderful days during March 2013 in Istanbul at Green House.
The atmosphere is so pleasant that make you feel at home.Usually it's hard to find a home away from home in a foreign country. Green House is located in the hearth of Taksim, just few minutes away to walk from Taksim Square. Green House is one of best in the world that I would like to recommand heartly to anyone who will visit Istanbul.
The manager Talat, who is also the owner and receptionist, was very kind and helpful.
He has shown the generous hospitality of turkish people to all his guests and he is always trying his best to make your stay comfortable.
Our room (family) was very cozy and nicely furnished.
Breakfast is basic but very good.
The common room with TV and internet access is very nice to relax after comming out.
We would definitly come back.

Many thanks for everything to made our stay enjoyable

Room Tip: The family room for families with 2 people are very good
