This hostel was perfectly located in a very trendy area in Galata. The area was surrounded by cute coffee shops, great restaurants and the best little markets and shops. Also being very close to the tram line, it was super easy to get to all the main attractions. I would recommend buying an Istanbul card to use on the trams and train as travel is half price using the card.
I stayed at Rapunzel with a friend in a twin room at the beginning of our trip and then in the female dorm at the end of trip which were both nice, clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooftop terrace was really great to relax on at the end of the day (you can buy some beers from the local "Tekel" nearby and take them up for fun times).
