The position is perfect to move around Istanbul, close to the new central area. Museums, shops and clubs nearby. The hosts are cool and easygoing, always ready to help. A Little bit too noisy but I would recommend it

The place was dingy, but the room was clean. The folks running it were very nice. You may have to climb 4 levels of rotating stairs to get to some rooms. The Wi-Fi worked well. The area is a bit seedy at night, but definitely lively and an easy walk to Taksim.

I have stayed in Chillout Lya many times. They have nice and quite rooms, bathrooms are clean, nice amenities. They offer breakfast in their bar. Bar is nice to have some drinks and chat with people.

I would recommend this hostel if you came to Istanbul for a few days and you wish to stay in a very central place without paying hundreds of lira. Breakfast and air conditioner, free WIFI were great adds for the staying in Chillout Lya, also nice staff. However, hot water would also be a plus, but I guess there were...

We have booked in for 3 nights in an ensuite double room. The street is a bit noisy but we had no problem sleeping. Breakfast was really good. The location is perfect. All the sights were within walking distance. Would definitely stay again.

I wish I have not read reviews on TripAdvisor before staying in Chillout Lya Hostel. My holiday appeared to be perfect, although the majority of comments here are extremely negative. It is not fair. Yes, it can be rather loud at nights, but it is a hardly a problem for those who have chosen to live in a nightlife-area. Yes,...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
