Great place to stay in a lovely part of Istanbul (Sultanahmet). The foyer is open 24 hrs with someone always about if there are any probs. There is free internet available as well.

The roof terrace (which provides breakfast in morning as well and cheap beer!) gives fantastic views over the water to the Asian side. The hostel is located 2 mins walk from Blue Mosque and Agia Sofia. Tram stop is 5 mins walk (easily accesible) with plenty of shops and restaurants nearby.

If went back to Istanbul, would definitely stay there again! Definitely a hidden gem!

I arrived tired after walking too far and trying other nearby hostels that seemed to be way over priced for what they were offering. The staff here were friendly and welcoming, the rooms clean and i wasnt pressurised into taking tours or added services. The view from the roof terrace is wonderful, and a great place to have breakfast.
