The location is excellent, near all the best places to visit and next to Sultanahmet tram station.
The dorms and the toilettes are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is complete and very nice and you have it in an special place with wonderful sigths!!!
But the most important is the personal, the recepcionists, Burak and Sadi give you all the information you need and suggest places to visit and activities to do... they're so helpful and kind!!! Also there is a bar where you can have dinner, a cold beer and smoke narguile in a beatiful place with an special atmosphere!!! One of the best hostels I've been!!!

This was my first time staying at a hostel and didn't exactly know what to expect. Right away I felt completely welcome and at home. The staff are incredibly friendly. They also provide you with a lot of information and assist you with setting up tours and also unique Turkish experience (i.e.Turkish baths). I highly recommend the Orient and will certainly stay here again in the future.

This is the second time I have stayed at The Orient. The suites out the back are at such a high quality for a hostel. The reception area is social and a great place to meet people. The staff are always so helpful and friendly. No wonder I keep coming back. Wouldnt bother looking anywhere else. This is the place to stay!

Stayed there for 6 nights in 8 bed dorm room. The room wasn't full and my roomates were changing each day. The room was above the bar on the ground floor, so it it was noisy till 1 o'clock in the morning (loud music), but the earplugs solved the problem. The room was cleaned almost each day. They also changed sheets three times. The breakfast was basic, but the other food in Istanbul was rich so I didn't miss much the diversity of the breakfast. It is close to the main attractions such as The Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace. Tram station is near, 5 minutes of a walk away. Staff is very helpful if you have some questions or if you just want to talk with somebody. I was travelling alone and the bar was a perfect place to meet new friends. I felt very safe, you can also leave prescious things in the safe in reception. Doors to the room were all the time locked if there wasn't any in the room. On the other hand you have also lockers. In general I was very satisfied with the hostel and if I return someday I will definitely consider staying there again.

Room Tip: 8 bed mixed bedroom is above bar which can be annoying because of the music downstairs.
