  • Clean room in good, safe location (right by the harbor, blue mosque and Hagia Sophia), and decent breakfast (coffee, boiled egg, 3 olives, a little bit of cheese and meat, bread), very basic accommodations (got the basic double), no view out the window and no real common area for people hang out in. The directions on how to get to the hostel are hard to use, I highly recommend printing out a map with the hostel on it.

  • That was the worst hostel I ever been to... we actually booked a shared tent but thanks to the always lying manager we ended up in a tiny dirty dorm paying 3 times more as the planned price. Restrooms were just awful, showers are dirty etc! in the end on the last day me and my gf noticed that the manager turned off our wi-fi cause he wanted us to check out earlier!!!! also i would like to add that the luggage room is only available for 2 hours.. thank you for listening^^

  • the 20 beds tent is not real tent but a balcony with open air! You need to consider it, except for it, it's ok.
