  • The location is unbeatable, the hostel is clean and quiet, maybe they lack some activities to integrate people together but in the end it was a good place to stay and will be my choice to come back if I return to Istanbul

  • Positive: Good location (2 minutes walking from the main square). Good breakfast. Safe. Nice view from the terrace. Negative: the bathroom is cold. The showers are not fully close (walls) to the rest of the bathroom so the air coming from outside is not really nice (winter). Additionally I used the same shower during 3 days and I found the same waste all days (you need to improve the cleanliness of and toilettes were cleaned).

  • In general I liked the hostel, I lived during 4 days in 21 Bed Mixed Dorm, Ensuite (10 euro night). Our big room was actually the cellar very well decorated. My friend complained that she was bitten by mosquitoes during night, however I didn't see them, we saw only some results on her body. Breakfest is included in the price, however it is very small. But I am telling it in compersion with other nearest hostels since our friends lived at the same time in closest hostel for the same price.

  • In an ideal part of Istanbul, right by the Ayasofya, the metro, and the bridge. Great staff, affordable restaurant. Clean bathrooms with hot water and non creaky beds which for the well traveled is everything you could hope for. Due to its location it attracts a good crowd
