“5 star hostel.......”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

I booked through hostelworld. Since I was going to stay for one night for a layover I was looking for a cheap place to stay. I guess it was my lucky day!!

the place is brand new!, comfy beds, excellent lobby/bar. free breakfast. Even a jacuzzi up at the top floor. the location is unbelievable. off Pera it is as authentic as it can get, next to an old fish/produce bazaar during day which transforms into a a street party during night. Very importantly, the mgmt. team consists of a Brit, a German and an Italian. It is nice to have people speaking your language.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Istanbul which cheap, but comfortable, middle of the action but secure. this is it.

Since it is new, not a lot of people don't know about it. take advantage of it while it lasts.

Room Tip: The double rooms are just like a 5 star hotel. However, my favorite was the twin room if I were to s...

We were actually staying across the street from #bunk on our first trip to Istanbul when we passed by what looked like a rockin' bar we hadn't noticed the few nights before. It turned out that the owners of #bunk were just starting to open their new hostel - and what turned out to be their lobby was lit up for the first time from the street. The owners were SO lovely: they invited us to join them in celebrating and gave us a tour of the soon-to-be-opened establishment. There whole hostel is pristine, and the rooms have these beautiful photographs on the ceilings of famous Istanbul ceilings (like one of the Hagia Sophia's dome hanging above the lounge area on the ground floor). There's a snazzy jacuzzi on the roof and a well stocked bar in the lobby. Our only regret was that we'd planned our vacation before this place even opened, but we can certainly attest to the warm and welcoming staff as well as the beautiful building. Congrats, new friends!
