Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

About New backpackers

New Backpackers is ideally located in the old city of Sultanahmet and just a 2 minute walk to all the main tourist sites, such as Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofia, the Blue Mosque, the Hippodrome, the Underground Cistern and the Grand Bazaar. It is the perfect base for your visit to Istanbul.

Backpacker’s cafe/hostel has been an Istanbul favorite for 10 years. 2004 saw the entire building completely renovated under German/Turkish management, and it has a cafe and bar all in one - and even boasts some of the cleanest toilets in Turkey!
