Perfect Place for back packing travelers, fun, beers and very friendly staff. Make sure to bring ear plugs or stay up late. :-)
The hosts were very hospital. The room is basic but clean and all necessary things were available.
However it was VERY loud in the night as hostel is situated in the street of night bars and above the bar.
Also the biggest problem for us was the following: that address that we had received after payment was incorrect, phone did not respond, so we had to spent about 1,5 hours in the street in the nighttime waiting for call from the host.
Nous avons été bien accueillis. La chambre est très correcte et bien équipée. Prévoir des protections pour les oreilles si vous voulez dormir. C'était notre cas, on peut sortir très tard dans le quartier c'est très sympa. Nous avons beaucoup aimé l'ambiance de la rue très animée en soirée et la nuit. Les hôtes sont sympas aussi. Nous avons beaucoup visité et pas forcément eu le temps de discuter et faire connaissance. Une autre fois.
My friend and I had a great time at the Happy Hole.
The staff was very attentive and friendly. The place is cosy so you'll come across some other guests to share your travelling stories with. It was very convenient to have the bar downstairs when we were too tired to venture around Istanbul. Plus, you get 10% off on drinks if you're a guest at the hostel! The music is loud so you either take part or are a heavy sleeper. ;-)
The breakfast was not our cup of tea but that's mostly due to a cultural difference (we prefer something sweet in the morning). They served us a plate of olives, Turkish cheese, tomato, cucumber and an egg.
If you're looking for a place close to main tourist attractions, good value for money, friendly and fun, I'd definitely recommend it.
These guys were great! Fun and friendly.
Room was clean and the bar downstairs is a good place to have a drink.
I think you should split your time between this place and somewhere else in Istanbul because it is a big city. Start with here to see the historical sights.
The room is very simple, but in an excellent location, close to main atractions and easy access by marmaray, tram, subway and ferry! Our room has a big window, direct to the front street. At night, for those who have problems to sleep, maybe can be a little noisy, even why the music goes almost inside your head. Their bar ("Happy Hole") is excellent, I think one of the bests on that street - good drinks and great soundtrack. We haven't met Verity, but one of her partners (wich I'm really sorry to do not remember his name, with a nice moustache) is extremely helpful and gave us great tips about Istanbul. The shower is great, but it do not have curtains, and you will spread water all over the floor, sink, etc. The breakfast is also very simple. If you are looking for a place just for sleep, this one is very good.
Close to everything! You can essentially walk everywhere from this hostel.
You have a/c in your room
Nice big bed
There is no wifi in your room
It can be very loud
If you are looking for a budget friendly hostel near everything then this is the place to stay. The staff is nice and will try to help you as much as possible. If I came back to Turkey I would stay here again for sure!
