Liked: Good location near Taksim square

Disliked: Staff was rude and uncooperative. Asked for some flexibility with our booking and was given none, despite that the hostel was not even close to fully booked. Room we were given was muggy, with the sheets on the bed already damp. Had to open the windows to make it livable, which brought a lot of mosquitos in. The bathroom was really gross with mildew all over the ceiling. Wi-fi didn't reach the room, so we had to walk downstairs to use it. Staff later admitted that we were given a terrible room (even though we didn't complain) and they offered to change it, to their credit.

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.
