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.

Visited the blue mosque at …
Arrived at the Istanbul bus station before the metro opened. Waited 45 min until it opened at 6 am. After the metro, tram and a 1km walk arrived at the hostel at 7am.

However you could not help but laugh at the …

TravelPod Member ReviewsSultan Hostel Istanbul
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.
