I was travelling solo so found this place a perfect spot to meet fellow travellers. The bar attracts backpackers from all the other hostels in the area. The rooms are clean and bathrooms are good with decent showers! I think it's decent value for what u get. Stayed here almost 2 weeks!

The location of the hostel is excellent, near to Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya, the rooms are comfortable and it has an excellent restaurant / pub. You can eat great food, drink a bear and smoke hooka, also taking into account that the music is great. Absolutely recommended, hope to be back some day!

Great location, nicest staff I've ever encountered at a hostel, and the rooms/showers/lobby are all clean and well-kept. But don't go for the service or lodgings, go for the experience. Something about the atmosphere here makes half the guests decide to hit the town together each night. I am still in touch with two friends I met at the hostel...

Stayed for 7 nights and loved it. The staff were so helpful, the street full of life and the family rooms just great. Loved the breakfasts, meals and happy hour also that it was a pick up location for tours. Recommend it to you.

It could have been worse. Maybe this is the standard in Turkey, but 45€ per night for a micro-private room no bathroom (water and cold winds coming from the windows which don't close properly) is way too much. We understand that we are paying for the great location, but still... The food was disgusting and the staff was bored and...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
