“Hidden gem inside taksim”
Reviewed 15 September 2012

As many other reviewers have mentioned, this hostel is perfectly located in the heart of beyoglu, seconds of walk away into the famous istiklal cad. The staffs were cool and helpful, and the rooms are cleaned daily. Beware though that if you are looking for a quiet sleep, it may not happen (especially during weekend) as this place is surrounded by cafes and bars that plays music until very late. Other than that, we had a pleasant stay in the 12-bed dorm.

The owner, Ahmed, is extremely helpful and knowledgable about the area and city. For better or worse, wifi doesn't work extremely well in the rooms because he wants people to either meet in the common area or explore the city, rather than stay in their rooms the whole time. This hostel is very clean; the showers and bathrooms are good, but nothing special. The rooms have AC which is nice. There is no free breakfast but there are several cafes and coffee shops within 2 minutes of the hostel. Taksin is the party area of Istanbul so this is a great place to go out and meet people, grab a drink, or enjoy some hookah on a patio or rooftop. However, it's an all night party so hopefully you either enjoy partying or you are a heavy sleeper because the party goes until about 530am. I would stay here again.

The emplacement of the hostel is perfect nerby taksim and Istiklal street. We was 3 friends there to visit Istanbul (20 old) from France. The personel of the hostel are friendly and give you some good advice. Beds are good and you can meet some nice people there. Ahmet will make you a nice trip at him hostel. Wifi and Internet acess working and you can exchange at the reception. The door is open 24/7 and for young people make party and comback late that's cool.
Great trip in Istanbul !
