I stayed at Harmony Hostel back in May before beginning a fellowship that took me across Turkey.Harmony was definitely a great experience-- due to three of the staff. Ahmed, Mahmood, and Rami were great. Very helpful and personable. Ahmed and Mahmood cooked breakfast every morning, which I have to say went beyond what you'll find at other hostels in Sultanahmet (most hostels provide the usual cheese, fruit, bread, cucumbers. etc., but not french toast or scrambled eggs!) Rami was very helpful in terms of check-in and front desk operations. All three should get raises or at least the owner should greatly appreciate everything they do for Harmony Hostel because the staff is what makes that place great.
The hostel itself (rooms, etc.) weren't particularly special and like with any hostel anywhere, bring an eyeshade and earplugs). but again it was the staff that would make me recommend Harmony Hostel to people. The rooftop did allow travelers to meet each other and hang out. And the staff went the extra mile in making recommendations for things to do, not only in the surrounding touristy section of Sultanahmet, but also across the Galata in Taksim, which is slightly less touristy and much more fun at night.
