A new, clean, comfortable and cheap hostel in the middle of the chaotic and young atmosphere of TAKSIM and BEYOGLU (New City Center).

If you are young and interested in being close to Entertainment, Art, Shopping and all other goods of a Multi-cultural European City, you probably prefer Taksim. In the recent years guide books started writing more and more the names 'Beyoglu, Taksim, Nevizade' with the name 'night life, entertainment, culture, architecture, trendy'. That means the main attractions of the city changed and people of Istanbul have been hanging out around these neighbourhoods.

To smell the real character of Istanbul - Today, Sofa Hostel offers you to stay close to Taksim Square, Istiklal Street (the famous pedestrian street), Public Transportation (bus, minibus, subway, taxi, tram, funicular) all around the city and to the airport

Travellers, students, tourists always complain that they CAN NOT MEET so many Real Turkish People, while turkish people complain about not meeting tourists... Sofa Hostel is thought to be one those cosy places in which young people all over the world could meet their future Turkish Friends.

You can get free information from the staff of the hostel about the new events and 'where to go, how to do' instructions.

We provide to and from airport transfer services, travel information for the travellers, booking help for the events like live concerts, football games, whirling dervishes shows, cinema, exhibitions, etc...

Prices are per person per night.

If arriving via the Havitas bus which goes from both airports or on the metrotram system you will find yourself at taksim square notibly recognised by the large monument in the centre
Either follow the crowds to Istiklal Caddesi (famous pedestrian shopping street) which joins taksim sq or look for the tram lines which circles the monument and follow them down Istiklal
You walk about 5 mins down Istiklal and take the 4th street on the left which is SADRI ALISIK SOKAK recognided most easily by the CAMPER store on the corner as the street name is not posted on the corner. If your confused on the other side of the street is a large department store called Demirören and a small mosque
Walk 200m down Sadri Alisik sokak to the end which goes down a bit of a hill after 100m. At the end of the street turn left and you should see AGA hamam on your right
Take the first right which corners the Hamam (10m) and we are the second building on the left and easily recognisable by the large grape vines growing up the front of the building

To get to taksim via the subwaymetro system follow the signs in the airport to the metro and take the train all the way to Aksaray then get get on the tram heading to Kabitas
Get out at Kabitash and board the Funicular which is a cable car that take you to taksim sqaure. This journey will cost you 9 Lira and the bus which is a far easier option will cost you 10 Lira

Located Near

The hostel is located in the perfect place to allow access to Istanbuls cranking nightlife as well as being tucked away like a secret garden. Everything is at your fingertips here and every guest will attest to that.
We are nestled in the beautiful nneighbourhood of Kuloğlu, with great cafes and restraunts just around the corner. Like antiques? We are at the heart of the antique district.
