Those who read the previous reviews carefully, which I didn't, will have realised that this is an upmarket backpackers hostel with some half way decent rooms attached. The advantage for the budget traveller is a convivial atmosphere in the common room overlooking the Bosphorous and a chance to meet and mix with other young travellers. The disadvantage, for the older and staider, is that the overcrowding leads to a difficulty in finding anywhere to sit at breakfast, mattresses stored in the corridor, fire exit blocked with broken furniture, a lot of noise in late evening. Take your pick.
