Liked: The location is fantastic: in a minute you're on the bustling Istiklal Cadessi

Disliked: The rooms own bathroom was rather small and the shower did not get very warm (first not at all, but the hostel staff fixed it in a minute straight away).

Liked: Один из самых лучших хостелов в этом регионе. Местоположения очень хороший и очень близко к Истикляль. Очень чистый, отличный сервис и реально прекрасный завтрак. Из всего этого рассположения стоет этого цены.

Liked: Super nice & helpful staff. It is centrally located and very comfortable. The Hostel team keeps trying to improve and develop the quality of services they offer. The breakfast is not only good for the stomach, it is also a big oppurtunity to meet other international guets. One thing I also loved was, that there is always someone in the reception (24/7). I will definitely come again to the hostel.

Disliked: The only negative and sad thing is, saying good bye to the friendly and amazing staff. They are young, funny, respectful, polite and very Helpful. I will miss them.

Liked: The place felt very safe and clean. We stayed in a four bed hostel and had plenty of room to ourselves which is always nice when staying in a hostel.

Disliked: The hostel is extremely difficult to find! This isn't their fault as apparently there is a law in Turkey where they can't advertise, but we checked in at night and it was so hard to find. The only other issue we had was that the shower was quite clogged and overflowed after a few minutes. We told reception, but it didn't get cleaned while we were still there.

Liked: Location, friendly staff

Disliked: Where do I start? Firstly, they placed us on the 5th floor - spiral staircase that were very steep. We slept in the attic - literally! There was a strange vibration sound that occurs every 2-3 min; possibly the water heater/pump. How annoying!There was a large structural concrete beam next to my bed. Even though it was in the middle of winter, we would wake up sweating, sleeping with the window open wasn't enough. There were no electricity sockets, reading lamps, shelves for our belongings. The lockers provided were barely adequate (size) and the lockers were weak and could easily be opened. The toilets were designed for dwarfs (Soo small) and the sliding bathroom door was difficult to lock. Check in's at 2pm, but if you get there earlier, there's no one to open the door for you with a greeting and smile ( we travelled from Australia and were exhausted) - we had to wait at the cafe and ensured the cafe owner to enquire about early check in. The common room is a bunker again designed for dwarves (4 people max). Not worth the money... Lastly, there was no water running at all for a few hours, no shower/toilet - they told us there was a problem with the whole area (which was bs because a friend was staying around the corner and had running water)
