Liked: Lovely owner who lives on the property with his wife and daughter. Always ready to help and assist the guest!

Disliked: It recently changed address so wasn't exactly as simple to find as expected... nonetheless it's close to Taksim and in a quiet, small, steep street.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay at Red River. The hostel is situated in the arts district near many galleries and shops and the Istanbul Modern Museum of Art. It is also walking distance from the major shopping and nightlife areas. Definitely stay here! It is central to the metro and tram so you can get to all the main tourist destinations easily. You will feel safe there! I travelled alone as a young woman and I had a great experience.

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: Very good value. Facilities were functional and clean enough.

Disliked: Hostel is at the top of a very large hill and our room was at the top of a lengthy and steep 4 flights of stairs. Room was a bit hot with no a/c.

Liked: The location is excellent. Facilties are clean and comfortable. Not to mention it's an amazing value. The host, Fevzi, is friendly and knowledgeable and goes above and beyond to make sure guests needs are met. I will be staying here again when I return to Istanbul.

Liked: This is a simple hostel, for the dorm room. $11 was the right price. Do not expect A/C or steady wi-fi. It is in a good area and the host is super nice and knows about tourist information.

Disliked: The heat! And the lack of maps.
