First, you need to come to Taksim Square and then you can come to Planet Paprika Hostel on foot. Just a few minutes from Taksim Square.
A) From Airports
1. From Atatürk Airport
* By airport shuttle Havas
The best way is taking the Havas bus, airport shuttle bus outside the airport (white busses).
It costs 10 TL/5€ to Taksim Square and takes about 30 minutes.
You can check the timetable below.
* By metro:
The cheapest way is taking a metro from the airport to Aksaray station (1.75 TL). There you can transfer to tram to Kabatas direction (1.75 TL). At the Kabatas Station you need to transfer to “funicular” to Taksim Square (1.75 TL).
It costs 4.25 TL for the whole ride and takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
* By metro and minibus:
There is another way to come to Taksim. But not recommended for the 1st timer in Istanbul. You can come to Aksaray Station and there you can take Dolmus, yellow mini bus to Taksim Sqaure. But at Aksaray you need to know the minibus stop and it will not be easy to find. It is near the tram stop of Aksaray.
