Great place for those traveling by themselves. Easy to meet people at the common areas (bar and restaurant). Location is great, steps from Ayasofia and blue mosque. Staff is helpful and respectful.
Breakfast is not the best neither showers-washrooms but its on budget!
We had booked a twin room. on the website they show fairly basic but nice enough rooms with twin beds. what we got was a dark depressing room with bunk beds, it felt like a prison cell. It was nothing like the website. I understand...More
After extensive research, primarily on Tripadvisor.com, I concluded that this was the best hostel for overnighting when I escorted my handicapped 84-year old mother on an Overseas Odyssey 07JUN-10AUG2014, with Istanbul as the hinge in our travels West to WalesGBR, East to Hong KongCHN.

With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to
retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
A combination of the tram(above ground) and subway (below ground). You can buy tickets at the station once you get there. You will get off at the Sultanahmet stop and walk to Sultan from there. Hope that helps!
