Liked: the location was good

Disliked: the way we were treated was very unwelcome, they didn't treat us like (paying) guests. When I asked something they couldn't help me and they looked at us like we were being really annoying. But at the day of arrival I had to ask 3 times for sheets, when we finally got them at 2.30 in the morning they were wet.

Liked: I had the great pleasure of staying at the ExIstanbul Hostel in Taksim, Istanbul and I thoroughly enjoyed my various sojourns there. It is a real home from home, and Heja, the Manager is so friendly, helpful and organised. I have stayed there on 3 occasions and always found my room ready, clean, excellent free wifi and a fun atmosphere. Self catering facilities are available, with a clean lively kitchen, and you can do your own laundry also. Fantastic location right in the centre of Istiklal, 5 minutes from Taksim Square. The best value for money in Istanbul, I highly recommend Existanbul Hostel.

Disliked: Nothing!
