Stayed here again but this time with the family in a 4 person dorm. Once again Agora did not disappoint. The service, the atmosphere, facilities, tile floors, breakfast all top notch. The staff did remember me from my trip 7 months ago with friends. They gave out local hand made maps that they created. They recommended meatball restaurant which was great. The Room was great, it was sturdy and the bunk beds did not move when someone climbed up. They finally put stoppers on the locker doors so they wouldn't slam on the floor. Big lockers, bring your lock. Bring rooms and hallways with sensors. Bathroom was always clean, and hot water always there. They do provide paper towels in the bathrooms but some people use them as towels, bring your own towels folks. The girls to guy ration was most probably 4 to 1 which was nice ;) nice crowd of travelers. The breakfast was great with bread, eggs, jam, dried fruits, regular fruits, juice, tea, coffee, cereal, milk, cake. The rooftop has 2 levels which is real nice to hang out during the day and night. Don't stay anywhere else (ie Metropolis) but stay here. My 2nd stay here and def not my last if I go back to Istanbul.
