Positive Reviews

Spectacular location

Travellers consider the old-town neighbourhood one of the best places to stay while in Istanbul, as it provides an authentic Turkish experience and the location is also very convenient to major attractions. Guests say sights like the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia can all be reached within an easy ten-minute stroll. In addition, guests like the area for its ample dining options and lively atmosphere. Furthermore, travellers find it convenient that the tram is just a few-minutes' walk away.

Morning delight

Guests are continually impressed with the breakfast here. For a budget hostel, the selection and quality of dishes are quite amazing. In reviews, guests not only brag about the delicious food, but the venue as well. Visitors like that the breakfast is served on the rooftop terrace which has a lovely dining area overlooking the city and the Marmara Sea.

Quality accommodations

Both the rooms and dorms at this hostel get good reviews. A commonly mentioned topic is the availability of air conditioning and the cleanliness of the rooms. Guests like that all rooms, be they private or not, have an en-suite bathroom. Travellers think this provides more privacy. Travellers also like that each bunk section has a curtain and personal storage area, allowing guests to feel like they have their own secluded space.

Negative Reviews

Not so social

Travellers are disappointed with the lack of a social atmosphere at this hostel. Most of the time, the place feels empty. According to reviews, there are no common areas except the rooftop terrace, which disappoints visitors. Guests also feel that the staff do not do a good enough job of encouraging socialising amongst travellers.
