I stayed in a few hostels in istanbul, this was the best. What makes this hostel is the host Achmet, nothing was too much trouble, he looked after me so well and was always happy to offer advice on the area. The breakfast was lovely. This hostel is in a great location, very close to Taksim square, but as its... More

Located just down a sidestreet off Istiklal Cd which is the bustling centerpiece of Istanbul makes it pretty handy however you dont get much here beyond a bed. At 4 to a room the ratio is also decent. Mattresses look like they are from couches but they are comfy. There is no real sitting or common room beyond a small... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The rooms were spacious, cool, and clean. The staff were very helpful and polite, gave us great recommendations for restaurants nearby, and helped us plan our transport to the sights we wanted to see in Istanbul.

While the hostel's owner is incredibly personable, helpful, and kind, unfortunately the hostel barely lived up to the lonely planet hype. Staying in the large mixed dorm, there were two shared bathrooms, and perhaps the luck of roommates was not in our favor, but the cleanliness of the bathrooms was questionable. One toilet seat was broken, and one morning the... More

Great location. Ahmad is keen to give advice to prevent scams. I reserved an air conditioned room for a one-night stay. When I asked for the a.c. remote, the staff member said the air conditioning was broken, and that in fact all the air conditioners in all the rooms were broken. The power was on and in fact the air... More

I was there with an Erasmus+ project and it was a great stay!

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
