            English: Location in the center of the Old Town. Русский: Местоположение.

            English: 1. We met the first light cheating while paying: a day before arriving we were informed that the price 325Euro=780TYL, but at the arriving day we were put in front of the fact that the price is 796TYL. Please be careful with exchange on the reception desk. 2.There is no stable hot water, so don't be surprised that much if you'll be stayed in shower without warm water. 3.Soundproofing is ZERO. 4.Heating system is working after your request and switch off when you are slipping and you are again going to ask for it... 5. There is no nice view. Total: the feeling is like owner of the hotel is saving on everything. Легкий развод на курсе валют при оплате. Услуги в номере, которых в реальности НЕТ: Сейф, Кондиционер (не работает на обогрев), Утюг, Гостиный уголок, Звукоизоляция (НЕТ!!!), Горячая вода (нестабильно), Телевизор (не работает), Факсимильный аппарат, Спутниковое телевидение, Кабельное ТВ, Сейф для ноутбука, Кухонные принадлежности, Красивый вид, Отопление по отдельной просьбе, но ночью опять отключают. В комнате тусклое освещение. Общее ощущение: владельцы экономят на всем!

            This hostel is located at the old town (Sultanahmet) and convenient to go anywhere in Istanbul. Nice and friendly atmosphere at the hostel. Managers there helped a lot with travel advise, they really did a good job to make you feel like home. The roof top terrace has a nice view facing the Marmaris sea. The breakfast there was great and it never run out of food. Warm and lovely hostel after all.

            Friendly staff, good location (near Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi etc...), very nice view at the terrace, good breakfast. They have heat and hot shower during winter. I like the cleanliness of this hostel, they have staff cleaning the hostel everyday. Great value of the money you paid with such a quality service. I will return to this same hostel after I finish traveling other cities in Turkey.

          • Single
            10.0

            It has a great location, very close to main tourist attractions such as Sultanahmet, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi etc. The rooms were very clean, so were the bathrooms and toilets. The receptionist was very helpful, always there to help. I especially loved the view to the ocean on the rooftop terrace where the breakfast is served every morning. Great place to relax after a long day of city exploring. I would definetily recommend it to anyone!

            Surely great location, close to Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi Palace, etc...It is like in the heart of the old city but the hostel location remain in a quiet and safe zone. We like the service there, their staff is friendly and nice, and thanks so much for their travel advises and all arrangements. Bed and room are clean. Friendly and easy check-in process. Breakfast was included and we never skip it, it has many variety of food choices. We travel in other cities in Turkey and their breakfast is definitely the best one. Don’t miss out the terrace too. Overall very nice stay and we would come back to stay there again.

            Very good location, close to the main monuments of Sultanahmet (Blue mosque, etc..) and quiet in spite of the numerous hotels in the area. The staff was nice and helpful (we booked a night bus to Cappadocia with them, all was ok). The room was comfortable and well-equipped (air conditioning, hair dryer, tv). Very good breakfast (cheese, eggs, fruit, vegetables, cakes, etc).

            Good to know : the hotel applies a 3% commission on the price if you don't pay cash, as was our case. You can pay in euro.

            Good Location, and very friendly-helpful staffs.

            Lack of electrical sockets in the my room where I have to charge my mobile near the common internet PC lounge. A small rack with a electrical socket will be perfect near the bunk bed.

            Nice hotel just 3 min walking from the main places in Istanbul (Aya Sofia, Blue Mosque etc), with a beautiful view from the roof-bar. The hotel is in a quite street just round the corner of a street full of restaurant and pubs. If you need a car-park they will reserve you one -for free- in front of the hotel.

            The room was not so clean, and bed was without the top-sheet between the bottom-sheet and the blanket.
