Best experience for a great value. I consider the hostel location is the best in Istanbul, quiet neighborhood and very close to important touristic places. Also close to nice restaurants and bars (walking distance). Guests were the best, very friendly and helped us with everything. Highly recommended.

Stayed: August 2017, travelled with friends

I stayed at Cheers for 7 days, and then extended for another two nights. Breakfast is good, the beds are comfy, and the location is excellent in the old city of Istanbul. The rooftop bar has THE BEST view of Hagia Sophia, and the terrace on the first floor is the perfect outdoor common room to hang out. But above all, the staff make this hostel. When you arrive, the staff will give you suggestions on what to do, then introduce you to other travellers that are relaxing on the terrace, always going out of their way to make you feel like you belong, as part of their Turkish family. One traveller I met came back to Cheers after 2 months of travelling, and they greeted her as a long lost relative. Highly recommend-- Cheers will go a long way to make your Istanbul experience the best.

Room Tip: Smaller dorms are air conditioned, bigger ones are not--but with the window open it's okay

What an appropriate name for this hostel - Cheers! From the first day I arrived, I was welcomed by name, every time I came down, I was greeted warmly (and by name), and I felt within about 1 day that this was my extended home. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating.

I had a private room and it was far beyond what I expected from a hotel, let alone a hostel. Stunning! Beautiful street view with Hagia Sophia in the distance. Very clean.

The rooftop bar is cozy. It has a dart board, cushions to relax, a friendly bartender, and the greatest view of Hagia Sophia.

I would highly recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a place in Istanbul that is central to all of the main sites and has a unique vibe.

The staff here really make your experience in Istanbul great, there's always someone available to answer questions 24/7 as well as give advice about navigating the city. Sinan,Tarik and ahmed are so hospitable and go out of their way to make sure you're comfortable and having a good time.
The location is fantastic and I have nothing but good things to say about the accommodation. Beds are comfortable,everything is perfectly clean and the general atmosphere here is great. Would definitely recommend to anyone who's looking to visit Istanbul
