I stayed here with my girlfriend in a private room and was seriously impressed. We'd just arrived from six months travelling through South America and Africa so this little gem was like staying in the Taj Mahal. Bed was super clean and comfy, room was small but cozy and, hey, this is Europe. Staff were sensational. It's a three minute walk to the major attractions (Blue Mosque etc) and around the corner from some great restaurants. Best of all? SUPER high speed wifi in every corner of the hostel (we uploaded months of pics in seconds) and the BEST breakfast I've ever had in a hostel (the freshest salads, eggs, cheese, bread, olives, oranges etc) plus the common area has a perfect view across the water to the Asian side of Istanbul. Can't think of a bad thing to say about the place except they have no vacancies left for when we return in late April :(

The Antique Hostel was fine for us, and that about sums it up. Staff was friendly and the other guests were respectful. I don't remember anything extraordinary about the stay- breakfast was quite tasty, beds and rooms were comfortable, bathrooms were clean, and there was plenty of information about travelling and sightseeing if we wanted it. If you're looking for a hip, trendy, hopping place- look elsewhere. But if you just want to come back at the end of the day and chill- this is a good hostel to consider.

The hostel is clean and cheap. They provide internet access. The staffs are very friendly and helpful (they are a bit flirty though :p ). The location is very good, walk for 1 min, and you can see the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.

Antique Hostel is perfectly located by all of the important historical sights in Istanbul. It has its own rooftop bar where they also serve breakfast. Breakfast was amazing! They had bread, eggs, cereal, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cheese. The staff at Antique were really helpful! Volkan, even took our group out to a karaoke bar one night!! I would definitely stay here if you're going to Istanbul!
