“The worst hostel I have ever stayed in.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 December 2010

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!
