      Although I booked a 6 bed all female dorm and when I arrived was told it was full.. it did turn out to be a good stay. I was given a partial refund and put in to a larger mixed dorm which was fine. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was nice (especially as it was on the sunny roof terrace!). The wifi wouldnt work on my phone but the fast internet on the computers in the lobby made up for that. They arranged my transfer back to the airport on a shuttle bus - very happy overall.

      When I arrived at the airport in Istanbul in the early morning, the guy at information point was not very friendly. A mid-aged guy offered carrying luggage for me. Tram was busy around 7am, most of them were male, a few of them stared at me. When I arrived at Sultanahmet tram station, couldn't figure out street names, so my sweet friend Thomas&# …

      7ish my alarm clock went off in the morning. The girls planned to start early. Our first breakfast on the rooftop of the hostel was very contented - big buffet was lovely surprise! Gorgeous weather and outdoor seats were a big plus. We started from getting on a ferry to Uskudar - the Asian side. We just looked around the sea side and had kebabs at …

      After less than 6hrs of sleep, I forced myself to get up around 9am. It was raining outside, I didn't expect this as the weather in the last 2 days was absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Not sure about my plans, but I guess I should sort out my laundry first. The guys in the hostel were so helpful, they firstly called the laundry to find out that 7 Lira ( …

      Having decided to skip Troy/Gallipoli and head straight to Istanbul to round off our Turkish chapter, we lost no time in boarding a daytime bus from Selcuk (enroute from Didyma) heading north to Turkey's premier destination. It was dark by the time we crossed Bursa and reached the Sea of Marmara. Istanbul lay just a short distance across the sea but the land route would take us significantly eastward before bending back westward. We were surprised when the bus left the ...
