we spent 3 nights at new backpackers hostel over eastern. the hostel is situated in a street beside the hagia sophia and blue mosque. we were received by a friendly hostel staff in their own restaurant, taking a cup of tea, so the first impression was good. the double bed room was a little bit small for 2 persons, but this was ok. we had an own bathroom. both were not cleaned as we arrived. our room window was directed to a patio with a lot of trash. most of it is caused by a stopped construction site right next to the hostel. but there was also trash that must come from one of those hostel rooms, such as shower gel packages etc, as it was exactly down the window. the shower head did not work, so we removed it and gave it to the cleaning woman. they never replaced it, even after talking again with the staff. we took the shower like a gardener, without shower head. the hostel is good situated for visiting the big points. but if you have more days, change the city part, for example to beyoglu, as we did. it seemed, that hostels and people there are much more gracious.
