It was better from my expectations. The hostel interior look modern, well fit for backpackers. The value for prices are a lot more worth than it shown. It was clean, a place to sit and discuss with mates while drinking coffee (cause they have coffee bar too). They also got luggage room because they know there are so many backpackers came to the hostel
Downstairs, the have tennis table, breakfast place, pool (i thought so cause i saw the pool stick).
The room was clean. The heater was okay. The shower was okay also, like how a hostel should be. The only bad thing for the room/dorm were there were no wifi. Wifi didn't reached the rooms/dorms.
The location was excellent because it is near to both grand bazaar and sultanahmet. It is like in between.
The only negatives thing i can is that you will have people from all around the world, so there was this terrible thing happen to my girls, and it wasn't the hotel's fault. There were 3 guys entering the girls WC and there was only my girls in it. So they were shocked and scared and didn't know what to do. When we complained it to the stuff, they just say that it had never happened and it doesn't help us with anything at all.
I wouldn't say i will not recommend this hostel. But you must know that it is a hostel, we are sharing dorms and WC with other people from across the country. So maybe your privacy isn't well preserved and your belongings not well secured.
But what the hostel has given us, was much more worth than what we had paid. Thanks Cordial House Hotel. We will recommend this hostel to those who will like to backpacks to Istanbul someday
