Very good 8,0
The staff was incredibly kind. The other guests were very nice. I would’ve preferred a lower bunk and they were plenty of those for them to give me but somehow I got an upper bunk. Otherwise it was a good place. The location is good if you’re interested in the old town sites.

Amazing hostel
If you’re in Istanbul stay here. I can not say enough good things about this hostel. We had such an amazing find here. Everyone that works here are amazing and made us feel so welcome. Seyful, Tarik, Sinan are seriously the best. Such great guys. We even left for 5 days and then came back here to say hi and hangout for another day. The bar is great and we met people from all over. Definitely would stay here again.

Cheers scores high marks for its knowledgeable and friendly staff and ideal location to the major tourist attractions. WiFi not that strong throughout. Private rooms can be three floors up without an elevator and in a separate building w/out a view 3 minutes walk from main lobby/bar/breakfast building.

Clean quiet and friendly.
Everyone was polite and helpful, and it had quite a family atmosphere about it. It is 2 minutes from all the important sites of Istanbul. Very clean and quiet. A really nice buffet breakfast is available in the morning. Really nice.

Great ratings fully deserved
Best city center hostel I've seen. Friendly, helpful, welcoming staff, plus clean rooms and bathrooms. They even provide a breakfast worth eating (unlike some places...). I felt as though I was staying with friends. I will return the next time I am passing through Istanbul.

Amazing staff made it for me !
It's a hostel so the comfort is all relative BUT the staff is absolutely fantastic which made my stay worth it. It's super well-located in the Sultanahmet area where everything you want to see is. The main problem is the noise, if you are staying right under the bar you better bring earplugs. Don't miss the view of the Hagia Sophia from the bar ! Would recommend and return.
