Liked: This is close to the Blue Mosque.

Disliked: This hotel is VERY hard to find, even with a map, and even though it is on a main strip: the street and hotel name is not well indicated at all. This is a party district so you will hear music at night. It is a tourist district so it is not an authentic Turkish experience. It depends on what you are looking for.

Liked: I like everything. I strongly recommend this place. The owners are super friendly and helpful, the place clean and homely. You can feel safe even if you travel on your own, like me. The location is awsome - Hagia Sophia around the corner! I strongly recommend to book a place in New Backpackers.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: The atmosphere was nice and the other guests were great! The owners were very friendly and offered tea and desserts quite often. The Turkish style breakfast was a nice break from the white toast and dry cereal typically served at hostels. The location was convenient to all the main sights in Sultanhamet (5 minute walk to the Topaki Palace, 5-10 minute walk to the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque).

Disliked: First of all there is only one bathroom (toilet and shower in the same room) which is unacceptable for 10 guests! It can also get quite loud at night since the hostel is on one of the main streets in Sultanhamet, but I kind of got used to it after a couple nights. The 10 person dorm is in the basement and doesn't have any natural light or ambience so that could be improved.
