Cheers Hostel is a wonderful place with wonderful people - guests, staff and owners. As a solo traveler I was hoping to bump into some fellow explorers and partygoers - and I could not have found a better spot. Everyone here is open-minded, happy to chat and share experiences, and explore the city including the nightlife together. Needless to say,...

Definitely stay here!!! The rooms and beds are really clean and comfortable and the shower/bathroom set up was much better than most hostels I have stayed at. Lots of hot water and the shower is inside the room, but separate from the toilet which is convenient. (Why do other hostels not do this!?) The breakfast was free and delicious -better...

Amazing positive energy once you step into the hostel. Lovely warm vibe. Great location with a rooftop bar which has given me a hazey but at the same unforgettable time. Sinan and the lads were so kind and wont be forgotten by me for a while. Thanks for everything.

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.
