Liked: It was a nice hostel. VERY small rooms but had a nice balcony. Three flights of stairs up to our room but we didn't mind. Also this place was really hard to find when checking in, because there's basically no sign outside, so make sure you know exactly how to get there.

Disliked: nothing was that bad.

Liked: The hostel was located just off of Istiklal in Taksim area so it was great for nightlife.

Disliked: Being so close to a busy area, the noise of traffic and music from the clubs could keep you up half of the night. The hostel was also strangely laid out; it was inconvenient to have to go up a floor just to use the bathroom.

Liked: Basically the chilled our vibe excuse the pun but we had a good group of people staying here- it's very intimate.

Disliked: The place is not the most clean so if you're particular about your level of cleanliness stay awAy from here. One of the girls at the front desk had a really bad attitude I don't recall her name but anywhere people will clash so I would recommend this hostel with these caveats.

Liked: The common area is always busy and full of friendly people. The artwork on the walls is also really cool.

Disliked: The place is filthy. The showers are absolutely repulsive...if you could even call them showers. I walked around looking in all the WCs but didn't see one, then realized that the "showers" were just these nasty shower heads above the toilets. The place smells pretty funky on top of it. Also, it's entirely carpeted and that's not clean either. Gross.

Liked: The staff were amazing very helpful and friendly and just generally cool and interesting people. On weekends everyone from the hostel would go out in a big group pub crawl. Which was a lot of fun. I met a lot of great people here and have some amazing memories of Istanbul due to the fun and quirky character of this hostel.

Disliked: Nothing in particular. The bathrooms were a bit small and hard to keep your clothes dry in. But it's a hostel who cares if you get a little dirty.

Liked: This hostel was great - awesome kitchen and communal area and would have nothing to complain about. Ph maybe the snoring from others in the dorm room but you cant do anything about that - not the hostels fault!! Great location with everything around it and they are always friendly and helpful!

Disliked: Was rather difficult to find but that could just be us backpackers after a long night in Anzac Cove with no sleep!!

Liked: great atmosphere and good location close to Taksim. really friendly people and staff

Disliked: no topsheets for the beds, bedcover didnt really seem clean but we used sleeping bag liners. directions aren't exactly right. the street sign for the right turn off Istiklal street doesn't match what is stated in the directions. Just make sure you turn right AT the Demiroren store, not after it, and turn left at the street which opens into a park on the right hand side - then its on your left
