We stayed at Topdeck for 5 nights and honestly could not have asked for a better place to stay.The location of this hostel is perfect, only a 10 minute walk to Hagia Sofia and the Blue Mosque. Emmy and Metin who run the hostel were so friendly and accommodating, as were all the other staff. No question was too small and they were happy to arrange day tours and taxis to and from the airport for us. Our room was clean and warm, the beds were more than comfortable and there was always loads of hot water for the shower. Breakfast was included and was cooked to order. The hostel just opened Cafe Mitano up on the main street, a beautifully decorated place with really nice food and the best bartender (try a Raki bomb!).
Our trip to Istanbul wouldn't have been half as much fun if we hadn't stayed at this hostel and we are already planning our next trip back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The time for Istanbul is now, this is the city where you will come for one week and want to stay for one month. And there is no better place to stay than Topdeck Hostel! We are a small hostel, in the perfect location. With the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Topkapi Palace just seconds walk away from our hostel. We are also located close to great restaurants and bars, but far away enough so the noise doesn't reach us. From our rooftop terrace (plus some rooms) you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Marmara Sea & Asian shores! We have 24 hour reception and friendly fluent English speaking staff to answer all your questions and we can also show you around our beautiful city :) We hope you will be our guest. ... more less
