First off I loved the location. Away from the hustle and bustle but still pretty central.
It was good value overall though the bathrooms could have used some looking over. Still pretty reasonable.
I'd say it gives you value for money for a couple of nights in Istanbul though in could surely imrpove in some areas. As far as hostels go, it wasn't too bad.

Very good hostel. Staff were patient, room was clean, location was great - near Taksim Square, tram line, and a small grocery store. Sleep was good. The only minor quibble we had was that there was a mothball odor - a small price to pay for a cheap, clean, private room in a good location. We were out too much to be bugged by it anyway. No bedbugs - my biggest concern when sleeping away from home. Emailed to make the booking and had no problems.

Hostelon was a great choice for several reasons. First, the location is very good. I didn't like the atmosphere in Sultanahmet so it was very nice to stay near Taksim square where it wasn't that touristic and where salesmen behaved politely and did not hassle. Second, the value for money is excellent. It included a small breakfast. The rooms were very clean, everything was new and the place had just been renovated. Third, the staff was very friendly and seemed to enjoy their work thus getting information and tips was very easy. I travelled by myself so it was a good idea to stay at Hostelon because I met other guests who were very friendly. So all in all, the atmosphere was pleasant. A special thanks to the owner who managed to make me feel very welcome.

The staff were almost never there and when they were they made loud noises well into the night (including one of the staff taking her partner back to a room and waking us up at 1am having sex). The bathroom and bedrooms were disgusting and were not cleaned despite our requests. We had to pull a clump of hair and gunk out of the shared shower ourselves in order to enable it to drain. The sheets provided did not fit the bed. The staff left their rubbish and dirty dishes all over the hostel. I am dumbfounded as to how this hostel received posıtive reviews from anyone.

Hostelon
We had a magnificent stay at Hostelon! You won't find a more centrally located hostel in the heart of Istanbul. Kerem and his staff go out of their way to assist you with small and big requests. The AC kept us cool and comfortable at night and was a welcomed luxury -- few hostels in Istanbul offer AC at that price. In addition, the place is very clean and secure. The front door is always locked and you have access to big and spacious lockers in each room. A great place we'll be sure to visit again!
