World House Istanbul
Location, location, location! Our hostel is located in the heart of Istanbul.
We're only two minutes' walk from Istiklal Street (where there are 2000 bars and restaurants), one minute from Galata Tower (built in 1384) and 15 minutes from Sultanahmet (historic area) by public transportation.
We offer a complimentary breakfast as well as 10% discounts for guests at our restaurant. Linen, pillows and blankets are included. You're welcome to use our luggage storage room free of charge for up to three days.
Our reception and information desk are open 24hrs a day, offering discounted hamam, dervish shows and bus tickets.
Our historical building is 150 years old. You will stay in a gorgeous stone building which has lots of architectural character and history behind it. We are in love with our hostel, and we hope you will be, too :)
Istiklal Street is full of energy. Two million people visit in any given day. Even at 5am there is a bunch of people... the music never stops. You can find the best live bands, world music, oriental Turkish music and dance music. With all these on offer at your doorstep, this is the perfect place to stay. We will show you best and most affordable places, where local people go.
We will guide you to visit not only tourist places but also bars, restaurants and historic places that you can't find in your favourite tourist book.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
