Best Budget Option
second time, I stayed in Puffin, and happy to see that it got better. I stayed in a double room, clean and nice, good heating and enough light. Besiktas area is my favourite with lots of cafes, restaurants, bars etc, but no noise inside at all. ıf you are looking for a budget stay in a central location, highly recommended.
