The Palm Room on the top floor is worth the climb.The staff make you feeI like one of the family and the restaurant is excellent. Breakfasts are good and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in their beautiful city. Sad leave this morning,

This is a lovely hostel to stay in. The beds are super comfy with great pillows. The staff are really friendly and love to have a chat. The food is also amazing. We had a mixed mezzie plate and after almost one month in Turkey we all thought it was the best mezzies any of us had tried.
Lovely place in a sweet part of town.

It's a good hostel as far as amenities and cleanliness goes. Nothing too fabulous about it, but what makes it stand out is the staff. And the location is pretty great as well.
Yewuz, Musa, Onur, Osman, Naci were all far beyond expectations, when it came to friendliness and expectations.

It's a quieter hostel than the other property, Cheers Hostel. If you're travelling alone that's the one I'd suggest. But otherwise this place is amazing.

We stayed in the Pomegranate Dorm .. as a family. Beds very comfortable, room was nice. Location was ideal - quiet location but still just a few minutes from the Blue Mosque. Breakfast was really nice and plentiful and a good view from the balcony/terrace! Staff helpful. Food in restaurant was good too. Very pleased that we chose this hostel - and a great first of experience of hostelling for the kids!

A fantastic place! We stayed for 4 nights in march, in the Almond room with sea view, it was perfect. No complaints at all, Room, Location, staff and food in restaurant was all perfect. Cheers lighthouse was easy to find and situated in a quiet part of istanbul close to the Blue Mosque. Would recommend.

We enjoyed our stay in Cheers Lighthouse. Very helpfull staff, plenty of breakfast, very close to the old city centre. Clean rooms. Nice and quiet atmosphere for a good night sleep. Our room had a nice view on the Bosporus/Sea of Marmara. Also a nice view from the restaurant/terrace.

I stayed in the 6-person Pomegranate room for a week in late March and it was the best hostel ever, especially for someone not there to party, but to see the sights and soak in Istanbul. My roommates changed over a few times during the course of the week, but they were all respectful of each-others desire to sleep and personal space. There were lockers with locks in the room and the room and bedding were clean and spruced up each day. The breakfast is fantastic, relatively healthy, and pretty much all-you-can-eat. Any time you sit in the lounge/restaurant area, you are offered something to drink. Excellent service. Literally a 5-minute walk to the plaza and Blue Mosque. The "Little Hagia Sophia" is practically next door and is a real gem. I reserved a room through Hostelbookers early and paid a very low rate. I would recommend this to anyone and I will stay here again if/when I get back to Istanbul.

Room Tip: Book early...
