“Superb”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

I haven't stayed in a hostel and shared a dorm for years and I was expecting the worst. But this place exceeds all expectations: you can't get any more central than this, it's in the centre of the old town; the staff are really friendly without being fawning; the mattresses are of very nigh quality and I slept like a log; and the upstairs terrace/breakfast room has incredible views of the Bosphorous. Next door is the Four Seasons Hotel which costs about 100 times more -- and if you want to show off how wealthy you are just ask the carpet salesmen where is the Four Seasons and they will treat you like royalty.

Room Tip: "Don't be afraid of sharing a room -- it was a lot better than I was expecting"

For travelers on tight budget, it doesn't get better than Antique Hostel. This lovely dated building has all the amenities that you look for in a budget accommodation. Clean, spacious, comfortable and stone's throw away from Sultan Ahmet mosque and Hagia Sofia. What else and more can one ask for?
They have a great guy named Younus (he is getting married soon to a Turkish rockstar), he wil look after you and all your need. I wish him all the best.

You could not ask for a better location. What better way to start or end your day by walking the Hippodrome and passing the Blue Mosque while taking in the visual splendor of the Hagia Sophia. The place is not fancy, but provides a good sleep. The people themselves could not have been more friendly or welcoming. It really did feel pleasant and comfortable coming and going, and for the price, I'm not sure it can be beat. The wi-fi was spotty in the room, but the lobby computer was available at all times. Quiet location, not much traffic in this particular area. Generally a great value.

Positive: nice and friendly people, perfect location, good breakfast, clean, very good value for little money
Negative: near to minarets, small room and very small bathroom (but clean and ok for that price)

A very good and friendly address on a perfect location in the beautiful city of Istanbul

A great location for a walking tour of Sultanahmet area of Istanbul. This place is a few minutes from the mosques and about 20 minutes walk to the Grand Bazar, you could easily walk to the Galata bridge from here too.

Wonderful location (although it is a little bit difficult to find, even with a map). You will find there truly friendly and helpful staff. Nice clean hotel and very good breakfast. The internet connection could be a little bit faster.
