  • You couldn't get a better location than Cheers Hostel, two minutes from the Hagia Sofia and right across from the Hagia Sofia was the Blue Mosque, walking distance to the train station, archaeology museum, and close to the tram line too. The staff were very friendly, the place was clean, showers were hot and had good pressure, and the bar had reasonably priced beers and the most amazing view of the Hagia Sofia. Would definitely stay again.

  • I'm so happy that we chose the cheers hostel. We had such a fun time here. The people here are so nice and helpful. They showed us the best restaurant where locals go, the most fun places to visit and helped us to plan the rest of our trip. There is a nice roof bar at the hostel, very cozy. If I would visit Istanbul again I will choose cheers again.

  • Cheers Hostel was fantastic. We had some difficulties finding the place at night, but people in Istanbul are generally helpful so we found our way quickly. The location was great for walking to the area with the Blue Mosque and the grand bazaar, but also quiet at night. The staff was really helpful and friendly, and the breakfast was great. We would love to go back.

  • The staff in Cheers were very helpful and friendly all the time, the rooms are clean and cozy, with warm blankets. Breakfast is included in the price, the terrace-bar upstairs is great to chill after a long day walking around, and has the best views to Hagia Sofia. I surley recommend Cheers hostel if traveling alone or with friends.
