Great stay!
Great location. Friendly staff. Decent rooms. Super comfy beds! Restrooms are shared with just two or three other rooms, and they are cleaned daily & in good condition. Breakfast is good! Heads up— there are many flights of stairs depending on where your room is, but it’s not really an issue!

Would recommend
Clean room, with interesting details, but with no view at all. Still, it was pleasant to stay with my wife and two small kids. Breakfast ok. Host helpful, English speaking. Bit hard to reach by car, you need to cruise couple inches away from restaurants tables and crowd, but parking lot close enough (charge 30 TL per day or better say half a day). Bunch of restaurants and cafes in the same street. Close to Galata bridge.

Good value for Central location
It is a budget accommodation with a central location. Five minutes walk to Galata, 3 minutes to tram station and just 2 minutes to a large tram station that brings you almost anywhere. The rooms and breakfast are quite basic though. Some rooms come without bathrooms so read carefully when booking. Cleanliness is moderate, provisions basic. But price and location is prime so depends on what you prioritize. We had a decently comfortable sleep, nothing to write home about other than that.
