This small cozy hostel is actually 8 minutes' walk down hill from the Taksim Square, so if you come from the Ataturk Airport by Tram, it is better to drop off at Firdirk Station and walk up the Mebusan street, than you can find the front door of Route 39 hiding beside the entrance of the Pizza Chain Domino. I was totally lost the first time I went there and a warm-heart Turkish male drove me there.
Maybe the average decor and relatively basic room facilities would disappoint you at the very first sight, the amazingly convenient location and helpful staff just everything worthwhile. The Galata Bridge, Kabatas Ferry Port and Bosphorus Bridge are all within walking distance, which means if you stay here, it is extremely easy for you to see around the Sultanhemet Area, the Bebek and the Asian Side of Istanbul .
A majority of the staff come from English-speaking country, they are quite nice and helpful and if you travel alone you would never feel boring here.
BTW, the view on the roofbar is amazing.More
