Liked: It is located very near Taksim square, which is the liveliest place in Istanbul. Staff are very friendly and always around. Room was nice. Hostel is very easy to find although there is no sign - look for number 42. Electric water boiler in kitchen comes in handy.

Disliked: Kitchen is too small - only one person at time can do anything in it. So it is not very useful.

Liked: Pretty close to Taksim and was very reasonably priced.

Disliked: Bathroom wasn't clean. Almost no security, anyone could walk through to your room, none of the doors locked. Also lockers were small and could be opened easily. Room was very hot and had very few charging points for a 6 bed dorm.

Liked: location maybe, but after 3 days in istambul im not sure... cheap.

Disliked: where do i start? this hostel has the apness to be a good one, but the managnemt is more than UNprofessional. everything is old and dirty. firts generation ikea bunk beds, creak croop, you can feel every singe spiral in the mattress... the facilities = ZERO , only 3 slot of socket in 6! bed dorm, and those are at the entrence door. WTH? if you wanna charge you phone laptop, whatever, you need to stand at the door... they change the sheet, and the linen of the pillow, but the blanket is uncovered unwashed something... no heating in the room. i dont say it wasn't on, I SAY THERE no thing to make warm, once i arrived home and the window was open (9pm.) and in the room there was no more like 8C... for the rest of the night 15C... the staff is totally rude, the just drop you inde room and that's all...
