- “ Staff was very friendly and helpful concerning all questions. Due to my flight leaving at night I could leave my luggage there all day and even have a shower before heading to the airport. Nice Turkish breakfast and nice view from the roof terrace. ”

- “ The hostel was very good. Room in front is noisy from street music, but its tolerable if you close the window and blast the fan. Breakfast is also good. The location is fantastic - touristy, but a short walk from the great historic sites (Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque, Cistern, Topkapi). Additionally, they refunded our group of three for our last night when our plans changed. This was highly appreciated. ”

- “ I arrived early in the morning at the Hostel, though the check in was 11:45 am. The staff member was excellent. He was kind enough to allow me to chek in early without extra payment. Though I booked a 6 bed dorm, I was allotted a bed in 4 bed dorm due to my early arrival. Wow, the staff member was so considerate for the guest!!!! Bathrooms are cleaned frequently and maintained well. Hostel should revise check in times. Overall, a great place to stay and value for money. ”
