Our excursions into the city were always better because we knew we had an amazing place to come back to. The hostel was comfortable and homely. the owner and staff were extremely cool and helpful and gave us some great recommendations. They were also very happy to chat with us about any topic under the sun. The location was great - just a 10 minute (thought rather uphill) walk to Taksim Square. And I loved the cats! The room was very spacious and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The owner was extremely accommodating and allowed our friend who turned up at the last minute to stay in our room - we thus had a 4 person room all to ourselves! Really loved this place.

Room Tip: The hostel has an elevator - so any room is good.

I had a fabulous time staying at Stray Cat Hostel!! The staff at Stray Cat were amazingly friendly! They were so helpful and always went above and beyond to help my friend with whatever we asked. The hostel is also very clean with very charmingly painted rooms, and there are kittens to play with which is always a plus! It's a little bit away from the core attractions of Istanbul- the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, and etc- but very conveniently located close to a metro station which will easily take you there. An excellent value for our stay, and by far the best hostel I've stayed in!

I strongly recommend this place. Very safe, clean, cosy, near to all good sites, and cheap. You will find a friendly staff, always ready to help you. The decoration is charming, the playlist amazing, and the location just perfect to go out or to visit the city. There is a cute courtyard where you can smoke, a free breakfast, free drinking water, and cofee and tea all day long. Enjoy your stay !

Had an awsome weekend here travelling with a friend, it's a good place to meet people, really arty, great atmosphere, with a nice living room area to chill with games and kittens... Breakfast was good, and there's free tea and coffee all day. Staff are really friendly, helpful and good fun :)
