  • I stayed in 2 different rooms over my 4 days and in both cases the mattresses were terrible, very hard and uneven and lumpy. The hostel uses motion sensors to turn common area and hallway lighting on and off and it is annoying and ineffective as the timers turns the lights off too quickly. It causes a strobing effect off lights being switched on and off if you stop moving even for a moment.

  • Very friendly and helpful staff. Warm and relaxed atmosphere. Loved the murals and the oh so cute kittens. Walking distance to Bosphorus and great neighbourhoods. Nothing for people with cat hair allergy.
