Stay Inn Taksim Hostel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 30, 2013

The central location of #bunk makes it a good base for exploring the city - it's a stone's throw from busy Istiklal Caddesi.

We stayed in a top floor room with a small balcony facing the backyard. Comfortable bed with plenty of pillows; linen and towels provided. Simple furnishings, useful shelving and racks for clothes. Shared bathroom and shower in the hall.

The communal area, also on the top floor, has a large terrace with beanie bag seating, a simple kitchen equipped for self-catering, and a couple of computer terminals with free Internet access.

Between the bustling nightlife, a car park and construction work on the lot next to the hostel, there was quite a lot of noise in the neighbourhood. We slept through most of it by way of the old "pillow over your head" trick. If you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs to be on the safe side.

Plentiful and delicious breakfast served in the relaxed surroundings of the reception area. The selection includes white and brown bread for toast, sliced tomatos and cucumbers, peynir cheese, olives, jam, Nutella, cereal and milk, simit (bread with sesame seeds), tea and coffee. English-language newspapers enable you to easily catch up with news from the region.

During our stay, the room and communal areas were cleaned daily. Staff was friendly and helpful.

At 80 euro total per night in a private room for two persons, this is a budget-friendly place to stay with a brilliant comfort-to-expense rate. There's a deposit of 10 TL for attaining a keycard. #bunk also has a 24-hour reception service.

We stayed for 1 night at the #bunk, everything was great. Rooms were a bit tiny, but ok. The showers were the best I had in years. In the basement, there is a little place to hang around and have a drink. If one's looking for something more quite, the top floor offers a balcony with some beanbags.

Bunk is def one of the best places we have ever stayed at. I would highly recommend staying at this hostel since it has everything you might need and the staff is more than helpful. They really make you feel welcome and they are there to help you 24/7. They made us feel at home and we couldn't wish for a better accommodation during our stay. Our Istanbul experience wouldn't have been as awesome if we didn't stay at this place.
This hostel has a perfect location since it is in the walking distance to some of the main sights. The area around hostel is also great for a nightlife since there are so many very cool bars and clubs as well as restaurants. And the hostel staff will help you choose the best ones. I think this is one of the rare places where hostel staff will invite you to party with them and take you to the coolest places, showing you amazing night life that Istanbul has to offer.
The rooms are very nice and clean as well as the bathrooms. The wifi is very fast and they have different one for each floor so it never gets too crowded. The breakfast is great too and there is a kitchen in case you feel like preparing something yourself.
Special thanks to lovely Mila who made our stay amazing and who is def the best host ever. We can't wait to go back.
I would def recommend staying at bunk hostel when in Istanbul.

Bunk is one of the best hostels i've stayed at. The location is great, because its not too far from the sightseeing area, and the nightlife in this area is the best. Lots of restaurants and bars around. The kitchen is also really great, and there are tons of meat and veggie stalls in the area, so cooking was a nice change from eating out everyday. The staff were always friendly and gave good advice, and the rooftop balcony was nice to hang out on in the evenings. The hostel is about 15 minutes walk from Taksim Square, which is where the bus shuttle drops you off if you arrive by air. Theres also a nice barber shop across the street to get a shave at. I definitely recommend #Bunk for anyone backpacking in Istanbul.

Room Tip: The double room on the top floor, with access to the balcony, is the best room to stay in. The comp...

Perfect location for getting out and seeing Istanbul, with tonnes of bars and restaurants on your door step.

Rooms were clean and simple, rather small but all you need them for is sleep. Staff and breakfast was great.

The service was over-and-above any expectations. We lost our luggage on the journey to Istanbul and the Manager of the hotel personally helped us to retrieve it by liaising with the Airline and Airport. He continued to help us even after we had left the hostel and were staying elsewhere in the South of Turkey.

A few glitches, including a power cut could not blight our stay in this clean and very friendly place.

Excellent!
