  • This hostel is awesome. The location is great and the staff was more than welcoming. I would not stay somewhere else in Istanbul.

  • This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in my life. I especially liked the breakfast. While most of the hostels serve only serials and breads, this hostel serve various kinds of food; vegitables, boiled eggs, olives, sausages, fried potato and so on. I really liked staying there I'm 100 percent sure you will also like it!

  • room is ok. Breakfast excellent buffet, really nice and surprising. Providing a room for luggage without extra charge. sweet small things to improve: 1.second floor 4 rooms sharing 2 bathrooms (6 ppl in a room)seems a bit tight. One day the shower flooded with water not dealt with timely. 2. room a bit small. 3. the lobby was not open 24 hrs, their staff had to turn off light to sleep. yet in the room without individual light it would also be impossible to use laptop after midnight.

I ENJOYED THEIR NICE BREAKFAST. I REALLY LIKE THE ROOF TOP TERRACE. PEOPLE MEAN EVERYTHING FOR ME AND THE STAFF MEMBERS ARE VERY HELPFUL. THEY JUST WANT TO MAKE YOU HAPPY! I HOPE MY REVIEW ENCOURAGES YOU TO VISIT HERE.
