Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Yuksel is a warm, kind, hospitable host and an engaging conversation partner. He went out of his way to help us check into his flat very late at night and kept our luggage safe in his charming café the day of departure until our return flight in the evening. The flat is small, but cozy and functional, especially given the affordable price. Nestled in a blue collar area, it plunges you into the daily life of ordinary locals. Make sure to stroll the Sunday street market visible from the windows for delicious, dirt-cheap fruit, veggies, sweets and other sundry goods. The flat is also a convenient spot for exploring major city attractions on foot and relaxing at day’s end in the popular Taksim district nearby. I can imagine the unit needing air conditioning on hot days, especially if you are sensitive to street noise, which could be substantial even at night with open windows. We enjoyed our visit a lot, thanks also to Yuksel’s recommendations for sightseeing and eateries.

  • Yuxel is a very nice guy and excellent host. But yes, like many others we didn't meet him)). I would like to recommend to drop by on his caffe located near the galata tower. Very nice atmosphere.
    Regards the neighborhood, it's very close to center street (Istikal), but it's not such touristic like the other side of Istikal. On Sunday they (email hidden) overthere (under your windows).

  • Der Aufenthalt war wie gehofft, sehr schön. Die Wohnung war klein und fein inmitten Einheimischen. Wir würden wieder da wohnen wollen. Den Gastgeber haben wir super via SMS erreicht und die Schlüsselübergabe hat gut geklappt.

  • The listing looked exactly like the photos, It was small, clean and functional. Yuxel was unavailable to meet me so one of his friends did, he was VERY friendly and was nice enough to take a few minutes to review sights and local hot spots with me.

  • The flat is located in a typical district. Only 10 min from Istiklal street. the flat is perfect for a couple. Its clean and we didnt have any problem. I advise you to choose it and Yuxel is very nice!

  • Nous avons voyager en couple chez Yuxel. Nous sommes arrivés le vendredi et nous avons été accueillis par un ami de Yuxel, l appartement étais un peu sale au sol. Les fenêtres étaient extrêmement fines nous entendions tous ce qu il ce passait dehors (chiens qui hurlent gens qui crient...) nous avons eu une coupure d eau un matin. Le quartier est peu recommandable les passant nous proposaient de la drogue Quand nous rentrions le soir la rue est quasiment inconnu des locaux et des taxis. L'appartement est grand et agréable.

  • The apartment is tiny but clean and nice. No problems with the host. Although I wouldn't stay again in this neighborhood.

  • The apartment is in a very central neighborhood and it's pretty close to what it is presented in the listing. Good value for money (€50) and quite fast responses to our questions from the host and his friend! Istanbul is a great city! Thanx
