“Excellent location, cool terasse & atmosphere generous and resourcefull staff!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Excellent for a first trip to istanbul. A nice terasse on a lively street. A 2 min walk from Aya sofia and all postcard images...and a 5 min walk to the Bosphore.
The staff: generous and resourceful locals. Wanna party; they'll sure fill you belly with beer. Wanna keep chill with shiha and tea...just make it clear ;).
The upstairs terasse is Epic and the breakfast; good to jumpstart your day of urban exploring.
All this for a very descent pricing.

Affordable for students. Everything is very clean and staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Stayed in the 30 bed dorm with no complaints. Would stay here again. Ayasofya and all main attractions are literally the next street over.

Friendly staff that are very helpful. We stayed in the dorm and it was affordable. Breakfast is good, I wish they would provide some fruit though. You get a 10% off if you order supper from their restaurant but their portions are very small. I found a better meal across the road with a way more food at the same price. I enjoyed my stay, rooms are clean and showers are hot. I would recommend this place to a traveler willing to save and have a fun stay in Istanbul!

This is an amazing hostel! Ridiculously convenient location, the staff were helpful, the place was clean and secure and had such a lovely atmosphere. The staff, Burak, Bilo and Birkay, were so so nice and really made my trip to Istanbul so much better, really fun and friendly. I already miss the place! highly recommended!
