8/10 Very Good

Room was clean & comfortable. Small, but sufficient. Good shower. Reliable WiFi. Great location in nice neighbourhood, walking distance to all in Sultanahmet, ferry terminals & Galat Tower. Breakfast was filling, & the terrace had nice views, but a bit of background music would have made it more comfortable/improved the atmosphere. More of a guesthouse with dorms than a hostel (which wasn't a bad thing for us).

8/10 Very Good

Amazing location! Rooms were decent, clean. Annoyed that I booked separate rooms for my father and I and they we’re supposed to be identical but they ended up giving him a room with a single bed with a bunk which was not a good fit for him. After we asked about it they just shrugged it off and said it will still be the same price

Charming hostel in the old city of Istanbul
The antique hostel never disappoints, has a great view from their Terrace where a delicious Turkish breakfast is served consisting of cheese olives eggs some fresh herbs fruits accompanied by coffee or tea. I have stayed at this property before and will certainly stay here again when I am here in Istanbul. The staff more than accommodating happy to see me as a returning customer arrange for covid test and any extracurricular activities I may have needed.

4/10 Fair

The 4 bed dormitory was okay ! Tiny but you could sleep in peace . I liked the common area , you could go anytime you want . Staff were nice but a little cold but I guess that's the case all over İstanbul . Breakfast was weak , it can hold u up for 1h or so .
