    Conveniently-located to Sultanahmet, the hostel serves a decent breakfast in its fantastic rooftop patio. Not one of the larger hostels, it has a nice cozy feel to it.

    Paid 17 euros / night in the summer season. The location was great, and the view from the rooftop patio was amazing. Not the most social hostel during my stay there, but I understand they were organizing free shisha and a pub crawl to Taksim Square the night I left. The Turkish buffet breakfast was definitely one of the hostel's most redeeming features.

    The staff are not only extremely helpful but absolutely hilarious! The view, the food and the atmosphere at the rooftop bar are all amazing. I booked for 1 night and loved it so much I stayed and extra week. Clean, central and affordable, this hostel is a must for any Istanbul backpackers.

    Addiction to doner kebabs - it's a serious problem that goes unrecognized by the general public, but one that afflicts millions of people around the World, and is especially prevalent amongst backpackers. It's an addiction worse than heroin, leaving you with a horrible and unbearable dull ache in your stomach, when you have gone too long without …

    Coming to Turkey is a bucket list item on its own - travelers from all over the World rave about its charms, the culture, the people, the sights, the food ... ideally, my first foray into this country would have been a three or four week trip hitting up many of the major sights. Unfortunately, this stop in Turkey will only be for two days in …

    7/9 5hour march w/ death climb on ancient wall to amazing 360* view. Got to western suburbs. "let's get lost again". Man's massage in the bathhouse. Never been easer to shake the hand of a man who's just seen your balls. Out to main street (...) at night with the guys. Crowed, very western but cool. Nice dinner, beer.
