"I loved the owner of the hostel. He was amazing - we had a 12 dorm room and later switched to a 4 dorm room. Checkers and backgammon outside, hookah and great food. Would recommend this place to anybody. Great people.…"

Liked: Ahmed, the owner, went ABOVE and BEYOND to accomodate us with various local Turkish dishes that we asked him about, he prepared them on site for us. The recommendations for local restaurants and nightlife were fantastic as well. We traveled as a family with our two adult children, ages 25 and 22 and they loved their stay as did we at Chambers of the Boheme. We felt as if we were with family for the 5 days we were there; absolutely brilliant !!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Great place to stay, if you're alone or with a couple! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. If you need help looking for a specific location the manager will actually WALK with you to the location. The rooms were comfortable and clean, you also get your own locker, Great place to meet others too, the atmosphere is so wonderful! There is also a cafe on the main floor that sells food and water and things at great prices and is delicious! Great place to stay, would come back without hesitation!

Disliked: Because of it's location, music outside is played a bit late, so if you're a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. Also, got a few bug bites, but nothing too bad!

Liked: Awesome hostel with a very helpful and knowledgeable owner. Rooms are clean and secure with good bathrooms. Location is great, right around the corner from Istiklal Ave. so there are lots of restaurants, stores and bars/clubs nearby. Basic breakfast (eggs and bread) is nice and cheap and a great way to start the morning.

Disliked: WiFi only available in common area on first floor and maybe next floor up but not in the big dorm on top floor.

Liked: The location can not be beaten; a minute walk from the buses/metro at Taksim square and just off of the main pedestrian street in Istanbul. Numerous cafes,restaurants,bars and shops nearby. Tourist sights are easily accessible either by foot or by public transport. The hostel has comfy beds,is clean and affordable. Recommended!

Liked: Great location with a really helpful staff. I stayed in the 12 bed mixed dorm and me a lot of people to explore the city with.

Disliked: It didn't bother me that much but the area the Hostel is in is loud. To me it was a fair trade to stay in the heart of Istanbul.

Liked: The staff are really helpful and friendly. The location is great as it is right on Taksim square so easy to get everywhere or is only a few minutes walk from best transport options. The room we were in had really lovely wooden beds that made it feel more like a little BndB.

Disliked: The shower needs a bit of an update and a clean with a bit of drain-o put down but other than that it was great!

Liked: Good location if you want to be among the nightlife but quite far from the old city and most of the big sights. Good restaurant across the lane.

Disliked: Bathroom in 12 bed dorm was very unclean. Very noisey at night. Our sheets looked like they had not be cleaned. You cant drink alcohol in the hotel as they do not have a licence. No breakfast which most other hostels offer.
