Liked: The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. They recommended local activities and always provided us with directions. We had a room that was a little warm so they allowed us to switch to a cooler room. We appreciated their hospitality. I would recommend this hostel to any budget traveler looking to stay near Taksim square for great value.

Disliked: It's a little warm in the summer if you're a traveler who is used to AC. They do provide fans in some rooms.

A lot of people stay here long term so the place has a very homely feel. The location is perfect, so close to Taksim Square and Old City and all the cafes and bars and shops. The owner and staff are gorgeously friendly and helpful.The room was so clean and comfortable.The bathrooms were always clean also.They try to keep the bathrooms always commodiously. If you're looking for a personal hostel experience, come here!

Liked: The price was pretty good for the location - it's right near Taksim Square.

Disliked: Only one bathroom and two toilets between a whole floor of about four dorm rooms. No hot water in taps. Not enough powerpoints in rooms and wifi connection wasn't great. No airconditioning in the rooms so it was always hot and the beds were quite uncomfortable. I wouldn't recommend to be honest.

Liked: The staff are extremely friendly & homely. They are willing to guide us about the local attractions. Staying here was value for money.

Disliked: The location wasn't perfect. We needed to walk uphill dragging our luggage which was a little difficult. But the staff helped us out by booking a taxi for us when we were leaving.
