  • The place was a bit hard to find, but once you get there, you realize the location is great! The guy who runs this place is very friendly and funny. My check-in and check-out process was very quick and smooth. I stayed there for two nights, right when the snow had hit, and it was great, though a bit cold. I also found the bunk beds too low... My favorite experience in the hostel was meeting other travelers and hanging out in the lobby. The atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly.

  • Second time visit Planet Paprika. Serhat, the owner, is a great man. Always welcoming you in his great hostel. Bathrooms are nice, but everthing gets wet when showering. Around the corner of Taksim square, in my view, the best place to be in Istanbul. The walk to Sultanahmed takes about 35 minutes, but is great ;)
