I booked into this IHA hostel (I am a member) by telephone, as I didn't have the use of a computer in the place I was staying in, in Bulgaria. I have only praise for the welcome, assistance, concern of the manager. The hostel was comfortable, had a good feeling about it. Yes, it is old, and I had to climb many stairs, but that was ok with me. The main thing, the bed was comfortable, there was hot water, and a great welcome. Nice and central in Taksim square. Definitely to be recommended. I stayed there for 3 nights this month. Rosemary
