    the only unfortunate thing about my stay was that it was only one night! i’d always come back because it’s one of the coziest and welcoming hostel i have ever been to. thanks to all the amazing people making the hostel the great place that it is!

    We had a wonderful time with Emre and the hostel crew! The experience to stay at a place where you feel like coming home, every time you step in. Cissoko, Elena and Fatih were part of the team as well and took care of pizza, great late night conversations and the daily dose of little kitten love for everyone! Whenever we had questions, everyone helped us anytime. The room number seven is definitely close to heaven: solid 10/10 for the view. See you next time, it was a pleasure to stay with you.

    Conveniently located just between blue mosque and Hagia Sophia. So if you’re an early bird like me and want to go there before the masses - stay here! Also Emre is one of the nicest hosts ever. Friendly, helpful, talkative. Breakfast is awesome!

    Perfekte Lage bei den Sehenswürdigkeiten wie Hagia Sofia & der Blauen Moschee. Sehr liebe Mitarbeiter die gerne mit dir Tee oder auch ein Bier trinken . Frühstück war meiner Meinung nach das beste was ich je in einem Hostel gesehen hab man wird bedient und muss sich um nichts kümmern. Tolle Aussicht auf den Bosporus im Zimmer. Zimmer Sauberkeit war inordnung. Einziger Nachteil dadurch das die Moscheen direkt nebenan sind wird man auch mal um 6 Uhr morgens „zum Gebet gerufen“ . Sonst alles top!
