We stayed here for 2 nights this week (two australian girls). First time in Istanbul and it was a great location. I took the metro/tram from the airport to the hostel and the directions were very handy. My cousin booked a transfer throu the hostel as she got in at 8pm and she had no problems either.
Janna was great with our booking (I had booked the wrong date but she was able to accommodate us and look after the change in the airport transfer -oops).
We were able to walk everywhere - Sultanahmet, Taksim Square and everywhere in between.
The bunk beds were pretty squeaky but there was air on and wireless in the rooms and a great rooftop deck if you wanted a drink with the other backpackers. Breakfast was pretty simple but we were able to hit up the coffee shop next door for a latte/cappuccino.
Would recommend this place for young travelers.

But if you want to sleep away from the overwhelm of Taksim’s nightlife and Sultanahmet’s hiked-up tourist prices, Bada Bing’s neighborhood is right for you. Wherever you choose to go on a given day, your journey will start in the heart of Istanbul. ... more less
