    The only great thing about this hotel/hostel is the perfect location in the heart of Istanbul, Taksim area that is most convenient for sightseeing of the old part of the city. It is meters away from Galata Tower that has a panoramic view of the whole city. The staff were very friendly too and they helped us a lot with some sightseeing tips and directions, although they didn't issue anything like a receipt for our payment on our request. Another advantage was the very low price, compared to the other hotels.

    I would describe the hotel as a dumpster if I could find the closest word. It was dirty as all hell and the overal condition of the place is really poor and wreckful, everything is old and broken and the place stinks. The bathrooms weren't even cleaned for obviously a while. If a hygene inspecion goes there, they would certainly close the place down. There were also repairs going on and the whole place was full of garbage, paint and dirt. The so called 'panoramic view' is nothing but a wrecked area for storing the old garbage of the hostel. It's also very noisy because of the shop downstairs that are using some cutting machines which make some unbearable long lasting noise. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone despite their fact that it's cheap.

    I had value for money. Lodgers are given free access to the hostel's internet facilities which I enjoyed. The place is also undergoing renovation. The terrace gives some good view of the city

    Fabulous

    The location is perfect - convenient for a wide range of purposes such as sightseeing, shopping, etc. The staff - very friendly and helpful. Extremely nice people create a very pleasant atmosphere. I'm sure they will overcome a few difficulties they have now while they are only beginning.

    The hotel is still being decorated but that doesn't cause any inconvenience.

    Very close to Galata tower which is also close to istiklal street, and close to a tram station(kabatas), internet works!

    Stairs, very mall single rooms but a bit bigger double rooms. Make sure that they understand its double rooms when you book one.

    Very friendly Staff. Fairly clean rooms. Air Conditioning. Great location. The place is undergoing refurbishment.

    In general pretty run down, but refurbishment is underway, so the Value for Money ratio will improve in future. Right now it feels a bit expensive considering the very basic amenities it offers.

    They are trying very hard to set up the hostel, still some work to be done. Enthusiastic staff, good English, open all hours. Lots of information available, excellent location.

    A basic hostel in a great location with a very kind and helpful staff. I'd recommend it to my backpacking son but not his sister.

    New toilets are under construction.

    Good

    Location of hotel is good, very close to Galata Tower. easy to go Taksim and other places. But it is too difficult to find while going to there first time. Hotel is not expensive, easy to manage your budget. Staff are friendly and helpful.

    Toilets and bathrooms dirty. To be honest, there was poo pieces on the floor first day and it stayed there 5 days, no one cleaned it. We stayed there 5 nights. First day, flush was broken in toilet and was not repaired rest of the holiday. So we had to use other toilets. When you have shower, water stuck and does not go through hole.

    Exceptional

    The staff -- and particular reception -- was wonderful! This hotel was one of the highlights of our three-week trip across Europe & Asia. We arrived hours before check-in time but were allowed to occupy the room immediately. The room was recently renovated and thoroughly clean. There was very good AC, and the free wireless was strong even on the 4th floor. Breakfast was included, and was simple but adequate. We had to leave early in the morning on our final day and night reception -- Hakan T. -- got up before 5:00 a.m. to give us breakfast. He also arranged our taxi to the airport. The staff was thoroughly customer service oriented. The location is perfect, very near Istiklal Avenune and next to the famous Galata Castel; the old city is a short walk away. I repeat, WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!

    There is no elevator; no problem for us but for some it could be. As I said, the room was recently renovated, and we could not see how to plug the TV in -- but didn't intend on watching it anyway given all to do in Istanbul.

    Superb

    The hotel is very close to the istiklal avenue by walking it takes just a few minutes, on the other hand its easy to reach sultanahmet where has very famous places such as hagia sophia, basilica cistern, blue mosque etc. at the same territory its hard to find competitive price with same conditions.

    The hotel is not suit for old people due to lack of lift and the hotel location is on downgrade
