Arrived at the Sultan Hostel at 6 and died in the ass then got the traditional wake up call at 5am calling all the Muslims to prayer. This was a novelty for Bry as he …

Exploring Istanbul

A travel blog entry by josh_bishop

Visited the Blue Mosque and the Grand Bizarre in the morning. Bought a pair of fake Prada shoes for winter - 100 tl, a hard haggle from 130 tl. Went for an afternoon walk to taksim square and along the water front to some palace with Mel & jarrod. Had a real good view of the Asian and European peninsulas of Istanbul.

Rainy day in Istanbul

Turkey, it's been great!

A travel blog entry by bretquinlan


We have had the time of our life in Turkey. Everyday brought something new and comical. Not a day went by without a surprise ! Majority of Turks are super friendly expect some street vendors in the more touristy areas. Guess that's no surprise - we soon understood what a 'turkish promise' really meant! However you could not help but laugh at the …

This is a top pick!

Istanbul is amazing. The building are gorgeous and the mosaics and tiles lovely. In Topkapi palace some of the sultans treasures are jaw-dropping. The topkapi dagger is stunning and the 86 carat Spoonmaker diamond is just ridiculous huge. Most of the important historical sights are tightly grouped together so that you can almost stumble from one …

    Rooms were fine, shower head was broken. Breakfast was basic salad and bread. Free tea and coffee til 15:00 is nice. Staff are incredibly rude and unhelpful. Whenever asked for something it was as if I was interrupting their holiday, even if it was just for another beer. Very quick to tell u what u want is impossible and u'll have to book the expensive option with them. Very unhappy, figured it all out myself, just took twice as long. Location is perfect for sightseeing.

    Great location, walking distance from the major sights, plenty of eating spots nearby and good food at the hostel. Basic rooms but clean. Shared bathrooms. WIFI in room.
