  • Overall, considering the price this hostel is a great deal! It is located in the lively, vibrant neighbourhood of 'Taksim' in Istanbul which is a pleasant walk to nearby night life, shopping, restaurants, cafés and public transportation. The hostel itself is fairly clean and the rooms are adequate. The bathrooms tend to get a little dirty, but that's entirely on the guests to keep the mess to a minimum. Tea and mineral water is also available for guests 24/7. I would recommend this hostel!

  • If you are in Istanbul to go clubbing/out drinking and want a cheap place to stay after a night out this is it. Friendly Staff, but weird atmosphere. Good value for money if you are going to bed after 4am If you need sleep however, the Night club next door is so loud and there is no sound proofing, so we were up to 4 every night. Room was tiny and shower was like a box.

  • Good vibe, good prices, despite the ad there is a simple breaky included. Wifi in break room. It is in the centre of town so it is very noisy every night until 4 or 5am, and not the cleanest. But overall a great hostel.

These cities come at a cost and just one cocktail can run upwards of $15. Luckily there are so many other beautiful cities around Europe which offer an exciting nightlife at half or even a third of the cost.
