Jumba Hostel
Ranked #94 of 1,236 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 23 November 2016

The sisters are the loveliest hosts, there is a laid-back atmosphere in the place that makes it litterally feel like home. I wish I could have stayed longer !
The hostel is also perfectly situated to visit Istanbul, and the neighbourhood has everything.
To sum up, the best hostel I've stayed at so far.

We enjoyed our stay at jumba hostel at all! Beautiful, brite, tall and clean room. The breakfast was amazing. One of the three sisters cooked every day something warm and special and joined in the living room. We had so many good and interesting breakfast discussions!

This is a reaally nice place if you want to be in the bohemian part of istambul. The hostel is a small nice typical house runned by two sisters super friendly and willing to help you in anything you may need.
Rooms are nice, BEST BREAKFAST EVER!, internet works great and nice atmosphere.
To get there you need to walk a little bit but its worth it!

My husband and I stayed at Jumba Hostel in November 2015 for 5 nights. We had been traveling for about 4 months and of the 20+ placed we have stayed during our travels, Jumba was our favorite! The three sisters who own the hostel are very welcoming and friendly and helpful, but also give you space to breath and explore on your own (which we really appreciated). The hostel is very well decorated and very aesthetically pleasing. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom very clean (though it is tiny!). The breakfast is a nice spread with something warm made fresh each morning. But the best part of this hostel for us was the amazing guests. During our time here, all of the guests went out to dinner together, went to a hookah bar together, stayed up late drinking teat together, etc. We had a great group of people and it really was uniquely special. I think this hostel attracts great people. It is NOT a party hostel, but instead a very hip and chill spot. We hope to stay here again sometime.

Thanks to the lovely sisters we had the greatest time in Istanbul. They made us feel like we were home. For sure we will be back and stay again with them.
Near the center, near taksim square. Easy to find.
They gave us really cool hints so our experience in Istanbul was great.
