Conveniently located 100 meters from the prominent Galata Tower. Find the tower and you've found the hostel! It's 45 minutes from the airport on the M1 metro and then T1 tram for a cost of 4TL/US$2.50. Hostel is excellently located on the main road leading to the shopping, culture, restaurant and nightlife district of Taksim. Also 30 minutes pleasant walk to the UNESCO site Hagia Sophia mosque across the Galata bridge over the Golden Horn inlet. The cheapest rate is the comfortable but a bit noisy mixed 14 bed co-ed dorm for US$16/EUR12 most due to people wandering back late from the nearby bars and clubs. Shared bathrooms and showers are a bit cramped so it's not a great choice for "large" guests. Theres also a pizza joint and a supermarket close by. The biggest downside is it is right next to a Mosque so you get woken up at 5am by prayer calls. Of course that's no problem if you're a practicing Muslim but everyone else could use ear plugs unless you're looking to beat everyone else to the showers! Free fast wi-fi and Turkish style breakfast.
