Liked: The staff at the Orient were lovely and the cafe at night was a great place to chill. Everyone was always friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious.

Disliked: Most of my problems at this hostel were with other guests, as opposed to the hostel itself, but there are a few policies that contributed to that. A handful of the guests seemed to be long term residents as opposed to travelers and at least one of them was more forward than was appropriate on multiple occasions. I left before the hostel fully addressed the issue, if they chose to at all. The hostel would also benefit from more communal space outside of the bar/restaurant so that guests can relax together, especially with their own food considering that eating out in the neighborhood is very expensive.

Liked: The guys at reception were super friendly and helpful. Unfortunately if you're male you likely won't get quite as much help as us girls :P Great location, good breakfast, and clean rooms

Disliked: I never had a problem with it, but if you stay in the big dorm, there is no lock on the door of the room or of the hostel itself, so theoretically anyone could walk in off the street.

Liked: Wifi available on all floors! Buffet breakfast was pretty great - a nice change from being left hungry after two slices of toast with a bit of jam. The cleaning staff kept everything very clean and tidy. The location is amazing - a stone's throw from Topkapi Palace and the street it's on is full of buzzing cafes, bars and restaurants as well as plenty of shops and travel agents nearby.

Disliked: Plug sockets are next to the door which is next to a sink so not the best location. Some may find the noise from the street difficult at night but it didn't bother me.

Liked: The staff are really helpful, the view from the cafe was gorgeous and the hostel was very clean

Disliked: The hostel has a bar on the ground floor and it was really really noisy until about 3am in the morning. My room was at the front of the hostel so it was definitely louder than some other rooms. Walking around Istanbul is exhausting so it would have been better if I could have slept properly.
