Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

About Planet Paprika Hostel

Welcome to Planet Paprika Hostel, where you can experience the Turkish hospitality at the heart of Istanbul.
Our hostel is providing the cosy, friendly and clean place to stay. We are not a big, impersonal hulk hostel. We value the independent travellers and we are against any kind of discrimination. So come here to be a citizen of Planet Paprika.

At Planet Paprika Hostel; we know that when travelling with your partner, you would rather spend the night with them than have to sleep in separate dorm rooms or beds.

That’s why we have DOUBLE beds in our 8-bed mixed dorms. Couples can enjoy the budget price but also share a bed in the same room.

1. Check In and Check Out
Check in from 12pm or leave your bags before; at our luggage room. But if we have a bed available at the time of your arrival, we’ll be more than happy to provide that bed for you. But we can not guarantee the early check in.
Check In: 12:00
Check Out: 11:00

We know that many travellers want to take a shower before the night bus to Cappadocia, Fethiye, Izmir or anywhere. At Planet Paprika you can take a shower even after the check out.
2. Etc
We are organizing the pub crawl regularly for free. But you need to pay for your own drinks. We are not taking any commission from any kind of venue.
We accept cash only to pay for

Location Information

Planet Paprika Hostel is conveniently located at Taksim square. We are the closest hostel to Taksim square and Taksim metro station, just a few steps away from Istiklal Street, the most happening place in Istanbul.
At Taksim you can have a better chance to mingle with the local, not with a tourist. And after the exhausting night out, you don’t need to worry about the transportation to your hostel. We are right here to serve you.
We are also closer to old Istanbul; the touristic peninsula and big touristic spots. Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St. Sophia and Topkapi Palace. You can walk to Sultan Ahmet or you can take a metro with tram. We prefer walking. Since it takes only 30 minutes from here to Eminönü and a bit more to Sultan Ahmet on foot. On the way to old town you can visit Cite de Pera, Nevizade, Galata Tower, Galata Bridge, fish market, Yeni Mosque, historical Sirkeci train Station, and so on. Yes. Everything you want to visit in Istanbul is on the way to Sultan Ahmet from our hostel.
And Taksim Square is the transportation hub in Istanbul, so you can visit almost everywhere without any worry.
