I stayed at the Stray Cat hostel in July 2015. It was in a great location, close to main areas in Istanbul and very close to the tram. I haven't stayed at many hostels but I found it clean, quiet, with friendly staff and cats!!...More
A cute place to stay in Istanbul, if you love cats and like a smaller intimate more grungy/cool kind of place. It was a bit tricky to find, but really well located close to the tram line and waterfront on the other side of town....More

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.
