I was traveling in the area when I became stranded. The hostel that had accepted my reservation (and my money) was closed and completely gutted when I arrived to stay. It began pouring rain! Horrid. So, I stopped into Galata My Home, as it happened...More

Horrible place. Huge bug infestation. Got 30+ bug bites in my four nights. They moved rooms, and there were just as many bugs as before. One day the water did not work, and the only employee was autistic, which made things difficult, because he believed...More

We booked a double bedroom on booking.com just the day before our arrival, as we did for every destination of our journey through Turkey. After 14 hours of bus trip from Goreme to Istanbul, we were just more than happy to enter in our room...More

Only good for single backpackers. If you are someone not sensitive to cleanliness and noise, you might consider this place. The windows are not soundproof and it feels like you are sleeping on the pedestrian side on the street.

Sitting pretty with an age-old air about it, Karakoy
is situated on the European side of the Bosphorus at
the mouth of the Golden Horn. Perhaps the city’s most

of the Horn where the views of major attractions
across the water rival Karakoy’s own key attractions,
