    Do not trust in the photos! The unique good thing about this hostel is the location, Room: terrible! Bed: terrible! Bathroom: disgusting! Staff: not friendly. Definitely, I do not recommend this hotel and I would not stay there again!

    Don't believe that you can get a place on the terrace for $5, it is always 'booked out' even though you can look out the window and see it's mostly empty every night... even if you book in advance you might arrive to be told...More

    overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
    prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly
    epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the

    relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
