Liked: Great location, the staff gave us some useful information about the city.

Disliked: There was one bed missing in our room. When we pointed that out, they just put an additional matress on the floor. The room was not as advertised (no towels, no hair dryer, no secure lockers, no balcony). It was incredibly cold at night. Common area is very small, so there is not much chance to socialize with other travellers.

Liked: The location in Taksim Square is good, but most of Istanbul's key attractions (Spice Market, Blue Mosque, Gulhane Park, etc) require about a 20-30min walk.

Disliked: The walls are paper thin, so when guests were loud late at night, it kept us awake. The showers had limited warm water. The rooms do not look as advertised. The value is not great here (but it seems most hostels in Istanbul are this way).

Liked: Near to Taksim city centre.

Disliked: The shower wasn't working properly, not enough plugs to charge stuff meaning that every night the heater would be off. Caught a cold because the room was kinda cold.

Liked: Only the location is somewhat nice however I would recommend to other travellers to go to Sultanahmet district.

Disliked: First you get not what you have expected just from seeing the photos and reading the descriptions in the sites and the rates. The hostel is situated in an old house with a very small rooms. The common room is not nice at all. Moreover there was not hot water for the showers and no heating in the rooms. It was provided one small heater but first it could not heat the room and secondly the electricity was going down every once in a while ( like 5-15-30 minutes) and somebody should turn the fuse on again until the next power off. Only one blanket per person and the sheets I believe were not clean at all. I would definitely not recommend this hostel to anyone and the price for the service is well above.

Liked: The owner, Altug, as well as the staff are super friendly and kind. They speak English very well and I oftentimes found myself spending hours in the lobby conversing with them and learning about their lives. The staff at Levanten Hostel honestly felt like family at the end of my stay and I didn't wanna leave. It's also in a great location, close to metro lines and buses, eateries, nightlife, everything you could want, at a great price.

Disliked: I liked everything. The staff and hostel experience was superb.
