“I didn't wanna leave this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014 via mobile

Pretty convenient location for a hostel, and wait 'till you see the fantastic Bosphorus view from the roof top terrace! Friendly staff and great service, I'd absolutely wanna stay here if I come back to Istanbul. And it's all for a very reasonable price.

After scouring the Lonely Planet guidebook and the internet for a budget friendly option in Istanbul, we decided on this one, and were glad that we did! The staff was very helpful and accommodating, letting us eat breakfast upon our early morning arrival for free even though we weren't checked in yet! We were able to store our bags, and then check in early to our room, which was helpful. Our private room was great, cute building with tight stairs.

The sister restaurant was okay, but we weren't impressed with the food for the price that we payed for it. Budget food options were hard to find, especially after we'd been able to eat out cheaply across Turkey.

Room Tip: If you are not good with stairs, make it clear that you want to be on one of the lower floors, but b...

Excellent hostel with great staff and lovely rooftop terrace. Only small problem was no kitchen to cook for yourselves and no washing machine. Location is brilliant, in a quiet area that's only 2 minutes walk from the Blue Mosque. Bathrooms and bedroom were very clean. We had a private double room with plenty of space in it. Had the comfort and facilities of a hotel with the atmosphere of a hostel!

We booked a 4-bed room. We can barely open our suitcases and pack our stuff.
Apart from the size of the room, others are fine especially for the roof bar.

Very happy with the accommodation. We stayed in a double room with shared bathroom. Small rooms and small building but very friendly and helpful staff. The accommodation is clean and comfortable and very good location. The roof terrace is lovely with wonderful views across the river. I would strongly reccommend.

I stayed here for two nights with a friend and really enjoyed it. The location is very convenient for visiting Sultanahmet. They offer female only dorms. The pricing is reasonable. The wifi works. The breakfast is not exceptional but it's good enough. It feels safe
