  • Orient Hostel provides an exceptional value given its location in e heart of Istanbul. I stayed there for 3 nights and really enjoyed the clean beds and delicious free breakfast that they provided. Compared to other hostels, Orient Hostel is cheaper, but provides the same basic necessities that any backpacker needs without sacrificing in cleanliness, and while being in the heart of the city. Were I to go back to Istanbul, I'd definitely stay there again!

  • I'm not sure if there was a kitchen here. The hostel is in a very touristy part of Istanbul with all the sights you will ever want to see but little nightlife apart from tourist bars. It is also more expensive than average (tourist pricing) and full of people trying to sell you a carpet. The staff were helpful overall. But bring a padlock if possible, the ones they lend at reception for the lockers are rather flimsy.

  • The staff all over, was great, very helpfull and nice, hard workers!! We, a family of 2 parents and 2 adult "children" had a 4-person dorm on the second floor, which was nice, clean and roomy, the beds were comfortable and it had airconditioning! Included breakfast was good, the roofterrace was wonderfull! The only thing which we did not like was the cleanlyness of the showers. Ther was mould between a lot of tiles, and the drains looked a bit dirty. The showers themselves were nice and warm.
