Located on the continuation of Istiklal (Independence) Avenue in Beyoglu this hostel was wonderfully located- an easy walk across the Galata bridge to see the areas home to the Grand Bazaar and the Blue Mosque but also perfect for wandering Beyoglu and finding bars and restaurants hidden in its back streets. The only thing I would say is the walk from the bus stop at Taksim square proved to be quite a hike with our bulky backpacks on. The staff were great and very helpful and the free breakfast was delicious and included home made orange jam/ marmalade! Security was good and we were able to meet a number of other travellers from around the world.

‘I’m not humiliating myself and having people laugh at my expense for a poxy t-shirt and ball cap. I get enough of that at work!!’ I said.
By the time we woke at 8:30am we had already docked in Istanbul. We were a few hundred metres nearer to the ‘Golden Horn’ than last time. The Golden Horn is the name of the river that is a tributary of the Bosphorus.

... very much English but he tried really hard and whenever he didn’t know how to say something he just said “okay, good.” Another boy knew how to say, “How are you doing?” but he didn’t understand “I’m good and you?” which was pretty funny. Finally it was almost midnight and we all went out to the porch with a bottle of champagne.
