The Orient Hostel!
Recommended by word
of mouth this hostel and its wonderful staff have exceeded expectations with their welcoming and comfortable atmosphere, above average dorms and cleanliness, excellent food and beverages (especially Bulent's delicious Mojitos!) . Whether you're visiting Istanbul as a family, couple or lone traveller the Orient Hostel's friendly and helpful staff will ensure your stay is memorable and fun! Situated in Sultanahmet, the Orient is the perfect base to explore Istanbul's many historical sights, nightlife and shopping!
I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

This is a must for anyone who wants a fun time in Istanbul ! The location is perfect and the beer and food is good money for good food. Burak was the best tour guide ever and gave us the best advice and service, ask this guy for advice/tips/local words and your trip will be even more amazing! Eminonu!

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.
