Extremely helpful staff - helped us out of some jams. Great location. Only complaint was that some of the other guests were very loud late at night - would be nice if quiet time was enforced better.

In the heart of Sultan Ahmet, you will pass by Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque on your way to explore the city each day. The domitory on second floor for 6 people is quite cozy, in wintertime, the heating is really warm, so no worries of wet shoes. The domitory on the first floor for 8 people, however, is kind of dark, but with the advantage of having its separate bathroom inside. The locker is outside, so you could put your valuables in it, big enough for laptop and all the other stuff.

Attraction tip

Walk uphill a short ways to Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque & the castle. There are many landmarks in the area, and you can easily catch the tram here for quick (albeit sometimes crowded) transport to Ataturk Intl/other sites for a mere 4TL token.
