  • Great place, super nice staff, especially Erkan (day shift) and Walid (overnight shift) excelent location, affordable price, good traditional breakfast, the room was good with nice A/C, very cozy place full of people from all over, great experience. The hot water was broken all the time, the bathrooms could be a little more comfortable

  • The hostel's location is excellent with 5 minutes walk to Blue Mosque. The terrace has a super view! The shared bathroom is almost always dirty and breakfast is a little poor.

  • Apologies to the magic bus which is a good hostel though I mistakenly gave them this review. This is correct: The staff just chucked people's luggage around while cleaning and weren't very helpful when it was raining and we had to come inside from the "tent" (actually a balcony with an awning), put beds in awkward places and didn't seem to care too much. The next day they didn't arrange it properly either which lead to confusion. But a beautiful view and nice to sleep outside (no mosquitos) .
