I really appreciate staying at this hostel. Every one is very friendly and very helpful. You feel as if your at home. Much gratitude goes to Mr Ahmed, the owner of the hostel. He is so generous and helpful. Therefore, I would recommend staying in this hostel as it is the core center of Istanbul where all the needed services are very approachable.

Totally bad hostel, bathroom is puplic for 2 rooms, the rooms furniture is very old, the main reason for me to stay in hostel is to know a new people. But in this hostel there is no any events to share. It is like a cemetery.

It has been my privilege to stay in this busy, city hostel, which also provides peace and tranquility, if needed. This is all because of a well managed international team. :-)
