Liked: Great location right near Taksim square. Close to bars and nightlife. The staff especially Mila were fantastic they gave us good recommendations of things to do and gave us suggestions about good bars and clubs near the hostel. Thoroughly enjoyed my stayed one of the best hostel I stayed at.

Disliked: Only thing is rooms were a little small. Had a 4 bed room struggled to fit 4 people in the room with everyone's bags. Apart from that everything was perfect.

Liked: Good location, Friendly staff, good vibe, staff played great music in the lobby. Clean comfortable beds. Free breakfast exceeded expectations. Heated towel racks in the bathroom!!!

Disliked: Rooms are very small, even for hostel standards. Only one bathroom per floor, so be prepared for long waits. Get a free map from the airport, map that hostel provides is quite lacking on information.

Liked: Without a doubt the most comfortable, 'away from home sleep' I've ever had. The bunks are sturdy (no wobbling/creaking to wake up your friend above/below when you leave for your 5am flight... Great hostel in general, bathrooms are modern and immaculately clean. Breakfast is basic but plentiful. Location is good for main shopping street. It was a little difficult to find as they don't state how far it is from Taksim square. It is at the far end of the pedestrian street, walk about 10minutes and the metal sign they mention is a overhead gateway to the street. It's more of a pedestrian street and very different to the other previous streets. There is a 'Mavi' store that was opposite and if you hit the Burger King (a very small one, there are about 4 on the street I think it is the second) you have gone 2 shops too far!)

Disliked: But. They play music in the lobby/cafe/reception area from 6am til quite late. Not only is it bad but its uncomfortably loud for chatting and can be heard from the first floor rooms. The location is not in the old town so it a decent 25min walk each morning/night. There is just one bathroom on each floor and its bathroom and toilet in one so it can be difficult to get changed even if your not showering in peak times. Rooms are tiny, but as long as your are smart about where you unpack your ok. No bag (other than maybe a large handbag) will fit in the lockers so all bags have to be on the floor. Also note the laundry they send you to has no one who speaks English, is open irregular hours (none of which are stated anywhere, they seem to open when they feel like it) and they take days to machine wash clothes. Would not recommend using it unless you have plenty of time. (Took three days -when originally told 5 hrs through a English speaking customer) That said, these are all minor things, I would definitely stay there again and recommend to others.

Liked: The hostel has good enviroment, is clean and located close to Taksim Square. This makes easy to take transportation to the airport and to the old town.

Disliked: There is just one bathroom per floor in which are 3 or 4 rooms. During the week is fine, but during the weekend when the hostel is full is complicated to get a free toilet. The breakfast does not have to much variety.

Liked: This is one of my absolute favorite hostels I've ever stayed in. The atmosphere and decor are so perfect, it's incredibly clean, the beds are so comfortable and cozy, and the common room is to die for. I could eat their breakfast all day long. Murat and all the girls who work there are amazing.
