Amazing service!
I stayed here for one night during my recent trip to Istanbul. The hotel owner is very friendly and helpful. He answered my questions promptly even before I arrived at the hotel. He helped arrange a cab to the airport for me early in the morning. I was able to store my luggage a little before check in time as well which was super helpful. The place was clean, and close to the major attractions. Would highly recommend this property for your stay 🙂

Location is excellent for visiting all the "must see" sites. Nice terrace on the roof with kitchen facilities inside. Bring ear plugs - the beds are squeaky! Bathroom was functional. It definitely wasn't cleaned every day. All around, for the price and location, this hostel is recommended.

2/10 Poor

The property was very dirty. There is no hot water In the bathroom and shower. The young employee or staff who works night time on the desk, he over night talked with his customer on his desk and I did not slept because the desk person never stop to talk. Also one building is attached to Avrasya Hostel. The attached building is very Dangeriois building because the local city building department already put sign on the building. On sign wrote “ do not approach to this building because this building is very Dangeriois”

Good for a hostel , great location!
I love how close it was Hagia Sofia and Blue Mosque just 1-2 minute walk. Good simple breakfast with Turkish coffee. I have to thank a young man who carried my 20 kg luggage up 2 floors, i wanted to give a tip but i had no change. Thank you for your hospitality.
