This place is to be avoided! It is wildly overpriced for what it offers.
I've traveled to many places around the world, and I'm not particularly bothered by some poor standards...however, this place is only interested in your money and not the well-being of its customers.
I've been to Turkey (& Istanbul) 3 times and have stayed all over the country in accommodation of varying budgets and this is by far the worst (it has inspired me to contribute to this website). We stayed here as we didn't have time to look around for different options (and our favourite hostel was full)...big mistake!
Bed bugs, dirty bed-sheets, badly looked after toilet facilities....and it was the only place in Turkey that didn't provide a fan (in Summer!!!). Even small rooms in the countryside provided this basic option. It was a suffocating & itchy nights sleep. Also our view was of a dirty brick wall (which we could touch, as it was so close), which housed pigeons, who tried to get into our room at one stage. On top of that the bedroom window was broken, so it couldn't be moved...and the glass was shattered anyway!!!!!
PLEASE AVOID!!!!!! There are plenty of better options in Istanbul. This place is definitely not a Chill Out.
