This was a wonderful hostel to stay in for a couple nights. Very affordable, centrally located and very friendly staff who will give you wonderful "local" recommendations. I'd recommend this place to anyone. Only downside was no kitchen for guests to use or breakfast, but it was worth it for the price and atmosphere.

Our time at Stray Cat is definitely a highlight of visiting Istanbul. My wife and I love animals and to be surrounded by lovely people and learn new things and this ticked all those boxes - Sidat and his staff were so welcoming. We got to meet the current kittens they were looking after and were told about the best ways to experience the city of Istanbul including places to check out if you were on a strict budget. We stayed in a great private room with a bathroom which was affordable. Location is great, so close to Taksim Square and some awesome boutique coffee shops and a view of the Bosphorus nearby. Easy access to a daytrip to Asia part of Istanbul. 10/10 recommend!

A lovely stay for us both, breakfast included which worked for us (one gluten free, one vegan) as there were cornflakes and bread/jam- the kittens were precious and staff were really accommodating, free drinking water, WiFi, air con and good company were a bonus :) I'll be highly recommending this hostel! We stayed in a 4 bed female dorm which was comfortable and roomy, the whole place is wonderfully decorated too and near to Taksim square/ walking distance from Hagir Sophia etc. :)

was very nice ,clean, comfy, such helpfull/Friendly Staff, Sadat, Ali Christi and all the others, you will feel at home with the time, and it is very nice located close to the sea side, and also close to Taksim.
If you dont like insects wouldnt recommend to keep your windows open when you are not in the room, however the guys always keeping the hostel clean.

Room Tip: The double room the 6th floor very nice one.
