“good choice for low-budget travellers”
Reviewed 22 December 2012

It's a comfortable hostel with low-prices and good-value. It's location is about 10 min walk from Taksim sqr., where you can find many option of public transportaion (the tram to the Aya-sofia or buses to the Sabhia-Gokchen air-port) or the Istiklal street.
It is clean, in a quiet neighborhood, with many facilities around.
Breakfast is included, and though it is very basic, it is still very nice to start your day with "chay" (tea) and some food (anyway - you can easily find your breakfast in the city and not spending much money).
The stuff is freindly and informative.

We booked for 3 nights, just ready reviews and almost all of it were positive! And we were not disappointed (not even a bit!) We reached there around 2am, Bella was so nice & very accommodating, upgrading us to family room, even if we only booked for double room. She was soooo nice! And also in the morning, we met Talat, who we spoke to before coming to Istanbul! He was equally nice, telling us about the way & all the things we need to know. The place was so clean, you wouldn't need to worry that it's a hostel or something. The place is amazingly located in Taksim where everything is near and accessible. Seriously, we didn't even need tour guide for anything (except for Talat's tips :)) I would definitely recommend this hotel...

Room Tip: there is no pool or fitness center.

Very nice hostel. Clean and attractive. In a very convenient location. And for hikers and those who come to work or study. In a few minutes you can get to any transport. Do not spend a lot of money to live in apartments. In Istanbul, you will find where to spend it later. So if you do not look for enthusiasm and gold, the hostel for you. Dear visitors we need a place for secure, comfortable and economical lodging. Istanbul is a city of dreams. Year-round in the history of color. Enjoy the city and live in such wonderful places like this hostel. In the beginning, read the information about the hotel. This hostel in which 6 rooms, kitchen, living room and a place to rest. And do not look at hostole mistakenly elevators, jacuzzi and sauna.)))) Green hostel - for a comfortable and pleasant accommodation.!!!! And not a hotel five stars. And look at least valuable for hotels, hostels and luxury hotels. And choices. Luxury holidays in the room if you do not need the city. Or decent housing and many interesting hours and days in the city bustling with joy.!!!

Room Tip: If you want to save, you need to stay in the room for girls or a mix room. Very comfortable and dece...

Our family had a lovely time at the Green House. I loved that it was just 5-10 min walk from where the Airport Bus drops you and it is accessible to all of the rest of Istanbul. For us knowing little about Istanbul and not having had much time to plan our (5 day) visit; it was a great 'ease-in' to istanbul.

The family room was just right. Breakfast was serviceable. Free wifi that worked great for me. For the price everything was great.

Talat I found to be professional and warm; and thankfully not pushy at all about selling any additional services like tours etc. Our daughters were doted on by staff and fellow guests which is always nice.

We had booked this accommodation at the last minute, but were not too worried as there were reasonably good reviews on tripadvisor. We arrived in Istanbul late at night and we decided to pay for airport transfers through hostel however it arrived 3 hours late, which was very disappointing. While we were eventually refunded the money, the management was not very helpful in resolving this issue. We had the family room (between 2 people) which had a double bed and a bunk bed. Though the room was generally clean, the shower was as small as a cupboard. The toilet was outside of the room and it is shared with the other rooms. It is kept well however given you can't flush toilet paper (you have to put it in a small bin) it smells as to be expected. There is no elevator, there was air con in our room and the wi-fi connection was good. After the issues with our arrival, we found the manager to be unpleasant. Though he tried to help when we asked we found interacting with him to be uncomfortable. Breakfast was basic, with bread (and condiments), cheese, cucumber, tomato and some cold meats. It is about a 15 minute walk to Taksim Square, where you can catch the funicular to Kabatas and then you have to catch the tram to the Old Town, where the main sites are.
