This is the kind of guesthouse where you stay if you are looking for a cheap place to sleep... but not only. The rooms are clean, have a bathroom with toilets and it's quite quiet (except the train which is not far away).
But if you stay there do me a favor, take time to talk with the staff, stay longer than needed in the "restaurant" room, or on the couch in the main entrance. You may discover a different Istanbul than the one in your tourist guide.
And if one of them suggest you a strange trip for the evening, like "please come with us we will have diner in a cheap restaurant and spend the evening in a bar with a very nice view"... even if it sounds a little bit scaring, go there. You will have a great time, probably meet other nice people (we did and even spend one full day with people met during this evening)... just stop to be shy and fear for everything.
This is how you can discover the secrets of Istanbul, not in a 5 stars hotel...More
