  • The place is center and near to all kinds of public transportation, shops, clubs, bars, and attractions. The staff is so helpful, rooms and baths are clean, the mattes for sleeping where comfortable for me however my friend ones was not good, highly recommended for budget travelers in Istanbul.

  • I was never ever before stay in any hostel, so the first moment I sad it's okay, and otherwise it was. Later on, surfing a bit on the net I realized I could find a three stars hotel at that central place of the city with an uncomparebly higher level, services and location for almost the same money. So the next time I will look around a little bit better befor booking. Nevertheless the staff was really kind and helpful, I remember them as nice, friendly guys.

  • Great hostel, great price, rooms are perfect and clean, staff is very helpful and friendly. Location is awesome, bus and metro station are really close and it's in a part of town where it's great to wander around. We had a great time on our 5 day stay in Istanbul.

  • The hostel is good and well worth its price. It has everything you need for a long weekend in istanbul. The staff was very friendly and always helpful if we had a question. The only thing i missed a little bit was a dustbin in the dorm. But this is a minor thing, and I would definitely recommend this hostel.

  • I had a great time at the Taksim Lounge. Engin and Sezai were amazing hosts! I am kind of a middle of the road traveler. I enjoy night life but I love experiencing the history of a city. Taksim Lounge was perfect for that. Engin and Sezai did a great job of recommending fun night time activities and locations but the lounge as a whole really provided a great sleeping environment so I awoke feeling well rested and ready to do all of the day time tourist activities! Great hostel & people!
