Irene Dovalo Dopazo thinks…

"El desayuno estuvo bien, es el típico desayuno turco (tomate, pepino, huevo cocido, queso, mermelada, miel acompañado de té o café). El personal es amable."

About Mavi Guesthouse

Our guesthouse is the third longest running in Sultanahmet & Istanbul. With over 15 years experience, Mavi offers simple accommadation at affordable prices with an easy-going and down to the earth backpacking atmosphere. We are your home away from home. Breakfast is included with all accommodation (in some periods not for the big rooftop dorm), so you can start your day breakfasting and chatting with fellow travelers whilst sitting outside on our terrace. Just to point until the 15th of March breakfast is not included for those who made a booking in the rooftop beds. If you wish to have a breakfast there is additional charge for 4 turkish liras.

Our friendly staff can help arrange tours in both Istanbul and all around Turkey, provide helpful tips and information about the city and assist with any of your other travel needs. We are here to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. We will even teach you to play backgammon like a pro!

Own Mehmet Ali has lived in Istanbul for almost 40 years and knows all the best, local spots for sight-seeing, eating out and partying without having to spend a fortune. He even likes to take groups out on the weekend to Taksim for some Turkish dance nights; a safe, fun and cheap night out. In the summertime you can join us for two weekly eat-togethers: a street barbecue out on the porch and Ottoman cuisine-filled Manti night.

The hostel offers free WiFi. Computer, telephone, fax, printing and scanning facilities are available for a nominl fee. There is a communal kitchen for those who want to cook up some of the amazing ingredient on offer in all of the bazaars and markets around the city. Laundry service is also offered and luggage storage is provided for tour-goers and late-leavers.

If you cancel two days before arrival day, there is no charge for the cancellation. If not, we do charge the total amount of your booking.

Accommodation Information

We have accommodation varying from private rooms to dorm beds to rooftop sleeping, so there will certainly be something to match your traveller's budget.

Our rooftop dorm has 22 bunk beds, so if you have a large group and pre book it would be ideal. The rooftop has shower and toilet facilities. We are the only hostel with a large rooftop dormitory and the view of Hagia Sophia up there is awesome.

Location Information

Centrally Located - in the heart of Sultanahmet, we are just a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, the Underground Cistern, Topkapi Palace and only ten minutes from the Grand Bazaar.

Easy Transportation - We are located near to tram stops, bus stations, ferries and airport shuttle stops, making it easy to get to all of the sights of Istanbul and beyond.
