I have been in many many hostels and Agora is hard to beat for any backpacker.
First of all, something extremely hard to find : Metal bunk beds.
Now for those of us who backpack, we all know that usual wooden bunk beds make a lot of noise, especially when the drunk guy sleeping on top is coming back late, wasted from the local wine or beer. Also, any movement makes insane amount of noise and are very bad for those of us with light sleep. A fully metallic bunk bed, with integrated lockers, fixes all of this!
Bathrooms are spotless clean, the staff is just great, the breakfast is absolutely delicious, prices are right, good selection of trips and activities... And the very best of all, the fabulous terasse with jaw dropping fews.
It might be a bit noisy in the morning with people going up and down, but that's what you pay for... not paying much!
I had an amazing time in Istanbul and Agora made it even better. It's super easy to get to and in easy reach of many great spots in the city. I would go back without even thinking about it.More
