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.
