Located at Beyoglu.We offer a budget hostel next to the famous Galata Tower. 3 min to Istiklal St. (bars, attractions), 10 min to Sultanahmet. All en-suites, free WiFi, breakfast incl., multimedia, library. Join us for a divergent, budget and homely stay.

Rapunzel Guesthouse & Caf is centrally located in the hip area of Istanbul, Galata offering a budget accommodation. Istiklal Street, Beyoglu (pedesterian, nightlife, and shopping area) is 3 min. away, Sultanahmet (old city) area is also 5 min. away by tram. The nearest metro station is 2 min; tram and bus stops are 3 min. walking distance away. It is a place at the heart of the city offering you unforgettable beauty of Istanbul.

OUR STORY

We, as three close friends, refuse to become grownups have decided to create a place for cultural conjunction in hip area of Istanbul, Galata (old Genoesean center of Istanbul). So we are waiting for people all around the world to create an environment that encompasses divergent cultures; a place where not any culture dominates over the others. The space is formed by the idea of diy (do-it-yourself); this attitude is reflected to bathrooms, common areas, to even the kitchen stuff and is a tribute to amateurism. The building is over 150 years old and has been recently refurbished. This beautiful building gives the chance not just to see Istanbul\'s history but also to sleep in it! Our beloved rooms are spacious, brick-walled, clean and they all have private bathrooms, lockers, vanity mirrors, headlights for every guest and curtains for bunk bed.
