Istanbul Hostel
Ranked #485 of 1,171 Hotels in Istanbul
Reviewed August 6, 2012

This hostel is nothing special, but the location is good, especially for the price, and the breakfast is decent. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooftop terrace has a good view. Our A/C worked well, and while the bathroom was stuffy, it was clean and in good working order.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled as a couple

I stayed here for four nights and for the most part everything was solid. Over the course of my stay however I was overcharged (by more than a few lira) or asked to pay after I had already paid six times (three at the restaurant). While my case is probably unique, be weary of these guys as they are not necessarily on your team like most hostel staff is. See how much others are paying as there are different rates and if you book with hostelworld make sure that they count your deposit.

Also, when I confronted one of the staff about being charged for a room I wasn't given, he said "you are the traveler, you are the one with the money."

i stayed here in march 2012 for 4 nights , it is clean and with nice hot showers, a great view from the terrace ,very near to all major landmarks, and really a very good price too ,and i really enjoyed my stay here, but i had only 1 problem, when i asked for a pick up from the airport then my flight was delayed,so i arrived late, didn't find anyone waiting and got lost for a while till i found the hostel , and when i finally was in the reception ,he charged me for the pick up service,assuming that they already paid it . but that's why you ask for the flight number, to ask if it took off and the time of the arrival not just send it with little info .anything else was just good
