Welcome to our hostel

Chambers of the Boheme is located in the heart of Istanbul's most popular district, Taksim. Housed in a beautifully restored 19th century building, which was used to be the house to one of the greatest Turkish novelist Rıfat Ilgaz, the hostel is just steps from Taksim Square, where guests will find numerous restaurants, pubs and the Atatürk Cultural Center - a multi-purpose cultural centre and opera house.

At the hostel you’ll find both dorms and private rooms, Wi-Fi, barbecue area, a large common area and patio and a late night espresso bar - Cafe Boheme – which is a great place to meet and socialise with other travellers. There’s also a tourist information desk where you can get free city maps and information about Istanbul and Turkey.

Whether you fancy a night of Turkish delights and shisha, a cruise on the beautiful Bosphorus, live music and all-night dancing, or a glance at Istanbul's historical sights; all are within reach when you stay at this great hostel.

Auberge de jeunesse très agréable, les chambres sont très jolies et confortables et l'ambiance est vraiment sympa! Le personnel est serviable et très accueillant! De plus, l'auberge est située à Taksim tout près du métro et du point de dépot de la navette depuis l'aéroport! Le quartier est très vivant!

Tiene todo lo necesario para descansar bien y la ubicación es estratégica. Podría ser mucho mejor si incluyen servicio de desayuno y si el administrador fuera más formal en su trato con las mujeres, no debe confundirse amabilidad con excesiva confianza o bromas fuera de lugar. Por esa razón, recomendaría el lugar para hombres pero no para mujeres si van solas.

Le responsable de l'admission donne un service convenable. Son assistant est tout a fait incompétent

Les réceptionnistes ne se forcent pas pour venir en aide aux clients qui demandent de l’information. Certaines chambres sont très mal ventilées.
