Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The room in the hostel was nice; it is small and simple but it's all you need: a bed, a cupboard, a private bathroom etc. The room was clean and the view out of the window on the street was nice. The bar underneath the hostel was cosy and the men running it were very friendly! They like to party with you every night :-) They help you when you ask for it and they can arrange anything you like, including pick-up etc. The location and the street of the hostel is awesome. It's in the old historical part of Istanbul, very near the Blue Mosque, Aya Sophia and Topkapi Palace. The street it's in is one of the nicest streets to be in at night: little bars and restaurants everywhere! We had a great time!

  • We had an excellent stay in Istanbul due to the great location and wonderful hosts. Unfortunately, we did not get a chance to meet Verity, but Hasan and Harun were welcoming, enthusiastic, and charming hosts. The bar below the hostel was exceptionally friendly and we especially enjoyed the Turkish breakfast each morning.

  • I had a really fun time here. Verity was actually not at the hostel at the time I visited but her husband, Hassan, was a really nice guy and took care of all our needs. I should warn you that if you like peace and quiet, this is not the place for you. The rooms are directly upstairs from the restaurant/bar and there is loud music playing until (at least!) two in the morning. That being said, it's GREAT music, and I really enjoyed listening to it as I lay in bed.

    The location of the Hostel is in a terrific location, only an ten minute walk to the Blue Mosque and the Hagia Sophia. Restaurants are everywhere as well. I had a great time here and highly recommend staying here IF you like listening to rock and soul music!

  • Had a great stay here! Very close to the major sites in Sultanahmet and the tram to get you to other places in the city. Verity was easy to communicate with and all our hosts were very attentive. Also loved the Turkish breakfast in the morning.

  • Had a great time in Istanbul at the Happy Hole. I didn't meet Verity, but she replyed to all my concerns before the stay and Hasan/Haron were great hosts while I was there. The accomodations are simple and clean, my room was on the 3rd floor (American, 2nd floor European) and was the place pictured. The bathroom gets all wet during a shower, not a huge deal but a little odd. Location was good and the street had many bars/restaurants and close to tourist attractions. I think the best part of the stay were Hasan/Haron because there's def a sense of community amongst the businesses around that area and it seems everyone knows each other. Everyone were easy to talk to and easy to get along with and they did discount my bar tab 10%!

  • We had a large bedroom with plenty of space and we could not have asked for a better location. The hostel was literally minutes away from the Blue Mosque with plenty of shopping, restaurants and sightseeing nearby. Verity was responsive and helpful every step of the way as well. We would definitely recommend this place!

  • We stayed for five nights in the Just Hostel and it was a reaaaaally nice experience =) Everybody is really friendly, speaks good english and is eager to help with any problem. The rooms are small but comfy and clean. Thank you!

  • Absolutely loved staying here. They were flexible and welcoming and made our entire experience super fun. There's a great sense of community on the entire street. You'll never be bored staying here and you'll meet a ton of amazing Turkish friends.
