Liked: I had a nice stay in this hostel. My room (12p dorm) was huge, beds were comfortable. Under my bed there was some space to leave my belongings (I could lock them). Hostel was clean. Breakfast was very good (buffet). Stuff was helpful and friendly. Hostel organises a walking tour as well as a pub crawl so you can easily meet other travellers as well as taste fabolous night life in Istanbul.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The location is excellent for the main tourist sights and the tram. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The room security is appalling. I discovered that all the room locks on the third floor opened with the same key. I also checked one on the fourth floor with the same result. Similarly, my room could be opened by the keys from other rooms. John I suspect that all the rooms have identical locks. There was a safe in my room but it wasn't bolted down.
