Liked: It was really cosy and unpretentious. It was winter and not really the tourist season when I was there but even so the staff were very helpful and friendly aand the facilities were all one needs.

Disliked: It fronts onto a busy street so when you open the windows it is noisy. The double glazed windows do however keep the noise to a minimum when closed.

Liked: Great location within easy walking distance of many big sites and interesting neighborhoods. The staff were really welcoming and pleasant, and fun to chat and hang out with, particularly Can and Merve. The Saturday night dinner was amazing- really delicious food and good company. I joined the hostel dinner after a long day of traveling, and it was such a welcome relief to have a good, home made meal.

Disliked: No complaints!

Liked: This hostel was great, Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Offered to book activites and buses when we required. The dorm was clean however the dorm had a permenantly unlocked door with only a bed lockable side table (although the reception was 24 hours and you could keep valuables with them). That said though i never thought my things were unsafe as staff were always there to see who entered the property. Good common areas and pretty good hostel free breakfast. Perfect location close to everthing touristy and supermarkets and food until very late at night, access to kitchen.

Disliked: There was no self service washing machines only a laundry service, which was super pricey (as they all are in Turkey).
