The rooms were basic, a bed in a tiny white room, but nice if all you are doing there is sleeping. Bathrooms are very clean and nice. Restaurant is great and has some of the best food in Istanbul and the staff if friendly and funny.

Right in the old city, 2 minutes walk from the blue mosque and hagia Sophia. Small rooms but friendly staff and a complimentary breakfast. Terrace on the roof has views of the water and the blue mosque.

I decided to come to Istanbul for the month of Ramadan, to experience the culture, the people and to see how Islam is understood and applied in Turkey. Nobel was my hostel of choice for a number of reasons, including the location, the price, the rooftop terrace and restaurant but also the staff - it's number one attribute. I would often miss breakfast or be unable to eat at certain times for Ramadan, and the staff went over the top to assist me, often joining me for breakfast when I ate alone.

I personally consider the staff of Nobel family, because that is truly how they make you feel when in Istanbul.

Room Tip: Dorms are an excellent way to meet travellers here.

We found the hostel and not disappointed. We think Russian tourists can choose the one. Even if you don't know English the staff will always understand and help you. The hostel is in the historic center of the city. You can reach the most famous sightseeings by feet. The other thing is that the rooms are 4 different financial abilities. The menu in restaurant is different. All dishes are tasty.
P.S. especially best wishes to Mustafa and Mo. it's a pity we met you too late. ))

We stayed for 3 nights in the Nobel Hostel and it was an excellent choice.
First thing to note, its ubication, just steps away from the Blue Mosque and from Hagia Sophia, they allow you to travel to the most important tourist spots.
The staff is very helpful and friendly, they assisted us with many items.
The accomodation was very comfortable, clean, safe and tidy. At the terrace you can find good views about Bosforo and Mosques and you can spend time outside.
The breakfast was included and it was great. I would higly recommend this hostel in Istanbul.
We would definitely come back.
