Taksim Lounge Hostel
Ranked #139 of 1,246 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 12 June 2013

I travelled to Istanbul with two friends of mine (all girls) in may, 2013. We were very surprised at how safe we felt during our stay there. Location is excellent – just few minutes walk to Taksim Square. Great and helpful staff ,answered every question we asked.
Triple room, isn’t very huge, but clean and have a nice balcony. Everyday breakfast (included in price) was fresh and served on the lovely terrace on the roof. The free internet is also a plus. I would highly recommended this hostel to every budget traveler. You can get a lot for that price.

I enjoyed staying at the very heart of the city, friendly and helpful staff (with a good music taste) and simple but delicious breakfast and turkish tea in the evening. Highly recommend it to everyone!

Room Tip: Double (Private Bathroom) has a huge balcony with stairs leadind directly to the terrace on the roof...

Taksim Lounge Hostel is a very center located hostel in Istanbul, in the most interesting and not very touristic area of the town, near to many bars and shops. The rooms are really nice , with plenty of space even for 6 people. The staff was friendly, also, and we felt like home! I would totally recommend it to anyone who is searching for a small and well cared hostel.

I travelled to Istanbul with a friend for 4 nights in May. Taksim Lounge was the ideal place for us. About 2 minutes away from the hub of the fantastic night life and Taksim Square (with easy access to the city).

The late night street noise wasn't a problem, unlike the renovations across the road. They were loud and annoying but at no fault of the hostels, just an unfortunate circumstance. The included breakfast (on the terrace) was very basic. We preferred to eat out.

The staff were helpful and happy to assist with the many questions we threw at them. It was pouring down rain when we left in the early hours of the morning to walk to the airport shuttle bus (3-4) minutes away. We were offered an umbrella from the front desk that saved us from a potentially wet sticky flight home! I would happily recommend this hostel!
