The hotel is situated at Taksim, and has a great location for shopping. However, to get to the tourist attractions, you will need to go by taxi or public transportation. Breakfast restaurant was ok, but I would recommend eating at a local cafe.
Eccellente! Hotel centralissimo vicino al bus da e per l'aeroporto, in una delle prime laterali di Piazza Taksim, e sulla via principale. Aria condizionata, wifi, colazione e acqua calda. Titolare squisito e gentilissimo sempre pronto ad aiutarti e consigliarti, ad offrirti un te o un caffè, a tenere le valigie e un sacco di gradite attenzioni.

Hostel is located 5 minutes from Hagia Sophia. Almost all touristic attractions are in walking distance but if you don't want to walk, tram stop is as well 10 min from hostel. Guy at the reception was helpful. In the room every person has a locker and the room is locked with a card key. Next to each bed is one electrical outlet. Breakfast was very good and you can eat as much as you want. Bathroom was clean. Free luggage room.
Very friendly and helpful staff and the rooms and facilities were all very clean. Great location too.

Were to begin!! Upon arriving, the hostel catches your eye. It is located at a small road almost 10 minutes away from Taksim square. We arranged a transportation service from the airport, so the driver took us exactly at the hostel outdoor. The common areas of the hostel are very clean, with perfect design and attention to detail. There are two common places to relax, one of which is the roof bar, where you can enjoy the view while eating one of the menu choices. The rooms were also very clean and each bed has its secure locket, where you can put your valuable stuff, and two sockets for electrical appliances. Every day the rooms were cleaned as well as the common areas and the bathrooms-toilets. Those were also well equiped and made according to the design of the rest of the hostel. The staff was very friendly, really really helpful 24/7 and was talking decent english so we could easily communicate and/or ask for something. We really enjoyed our staying there and we will choose this hostel if we ever go to Istanbul again. We totally and without any doubt recommend this hostel!!
It was more like a hotel than a hostel, very clean and modern. Staff are very friendly and willing to give advice and help organise any trips or experiences etc. Easy to get to from Ataturk airport. Breakfast is €5 but highly recommend. Best buffet breakfast I've had. Probably my favourite European hostel :) Recommend to anyone.

it was nice and clean. very friendly and helpufl staff. our room was very spacious and nice the breakfast was very good and abundat the hotel was very close from the main attractions and located in a quiet area
Great location, walking distance to the major sites, but far enough away to not be surrounded by thousands of tourists. The airport pickup service was great, very convenient. Breakfast is yummy and is topped of by a beautiful view from the roof top terrace. Staff were friendly and always willing to help.

Cheers Hostel is undoubtedly the best hostel I have stayed in following 6 months of European travel. I have stayed in 4 other hostels in Istanbul alone and this was top, so much so that I extended my stay, and missed an ongoing flight to Bodrum. The place itself is perfectly located in the old town, within 5 minutes walk of numerous beautiful sights, shops, cafes and restaurants. It is also well serviced by public transport. Cheap transfers and tours can be arranged to both airports and other parts of Turkey should you need them. Rooms are spacious, bright, airy and clean, with quick WiFi throughout, large secure lockers and sufficient power points. There are enough bathrooms so I never had to queue, with good hot showers and even automatic wall mounted air fresheners for nasal pleasure. The rooftop terrace bar is a dream. Great views of the mosque, especially at night. A mixture of low comfy cushioned corners or tables and bar stools closer to the stereo. Flat screen TV as well for sports or other entertainment. Have a polite word with the bartender and he'll let you choose any song under the sun from his laptop. Extensive range of spirits, cocktails and Turkish beer available, all for agreeable prices. Open until the early hours every night, it's a perfect place to meet other travellers and start the evening before heading out on the town. Free coffee and Turkish tea available on the ground floor all day long which can be best enjoyed on the front terrace watching the world go by. Breakfast is fresh, healthy and tasty consisting of an array of fruit, vegetables, bread, spreads, cheese, meat and eggs. Two computers also available for communal internet surfing and printing. But I have saved the best for last. What makes this place unforgettable is the staff. I spent hours chatting and joking around with every single member until they felt like my brothers and sisters. They are always happy, always helpful, and always willing to go the extra mile. They are dedicated to giving you the best possible time in Istanbul. They know all the best places to eat, smoke, drink, shop, relax, party, whatever you want. I arrived soaking wet from the rain and was immediately given towels to dry myself. I was invited to dine privately with them, relax with them, and go out with them. Olga I thank you for your delicious Russian chocolates, cute dimples, good strong daily handshakes and entertaining piercing and tattoo talks. Ahmed I thank you for our supermarket adventure, and generally being a great fellow ginger wingman. Tarik I thank you for your life and dating advice and seeing I got to keep my favourite bed. Nori I thank you for slicing so many lemons and keeping the party going all night. To everyone else, Onur, Inga(sorry but I met so many new people I keep forgetting names)thanks to you too. And of course Zaman. The most beautiful, friendly, happy, fun dog of all time. You kept everyone's spirits up with your antics. This place is what travelling is about. See you guys again sometime.
It's a very nice place, centrally located, cool staff, international atmosphere and the price is unbeatable .

Excellent hospitality, kind staff and very well organised. Clean, tidy rooms and facilities. Peaceful and quiet location as well. A hidden gem, tucked in one of the best and busy areas of the city. Well situated to local transport facilities as well. Reliable and highly recommended.
It was a really nice stay. Great Location!!! And the staff is awesome! They help you with everything! Also everything was really clean.

I had a great time at Second Home Hostel. Chon, Rabia and Memo were able to help me out with everything I needed, from recommending cheap places to eat, to organising a 6 day trip around Turkey for me. They were also extremely talkative and give the hostel a really friendly and welcoming atmosphere. The hostel is unbeatably located within 10 minutes walk to all the major tourist sites in Istanbul as well. I would definitely recommend Second Home Hostel.
Great location (in Sirkeci, near almost all the important landmarks), friendly staff, availability of clean and well equipped private rooms (good for solo or small groups), warm atmosphere (opportunity to mingle with hostel-mates on weekend nights).

The place is centrally located and easy to get to as it is on the last stop of the airport bus. The owner is extremely helpful and will do his best to make your stay pleasurable. I really enjoyed the great atmosphere and the friendly staff Hope to book this place again when I'm back in Istanbul.
I loved the owner of the hostel. He was amazing - we had a 12 dorm room and later switched to a 4 dorm room. Checkers and backgammon outside, hookah and great food. Would recommend this place to anybody. Great people. Great staff.
