Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Me and my son enjoyed our stay at his place and had no issues. The bed was comfortable. Also, they gave me refrigerator space which I was glad to have and I have to admit that I forgot to clear when I left so I apologize for that. And he is also very polite and friendly as well.

  • Thank you for the lovely time in your wonderful flat! We enjoyed it a lot! Everything was clean and cosy. We will definitely come back and recommend the place! :-)

  • I loved my stay here. The apartment is very quirky and is very conveniently located, about 5 mins walk from Galata tower and about 10 mins from Istiklal street. Yuki and Onur are amazing hosts and shared a wealth of information about Istanbul and made sure that my stay was comfortable. Their cat is also very friendly. This is a great location for exploring the Beyoglu area, including Galata, Tunel, Karakoy and you can practically walk from the apartment to the south side in less than 20 mins (I did!).

  • The room is pretty nice, big, clean, plenty of space, comfy bed.
    I did not meet Yuxel very much because he works a lot, but he was a very nice and gentle guy.
    Location is good, very close to Galata Tower and lots of good bars in Begoylu. At night it can look a little bit scary but it's safe.
    There is no lift and it's on the 3rd floor, be aware of this if you carry a big luggage.

  • Yuky is a nice host.
    Apartment is perfectly located. Really good offer for this price.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at the room, part of a larger apartment which I shared with Yuksel and Onur. They are both extremely friendly and accommodating. The place is an extremely interesting part of town -- not only suitable positioned for transportation and access to key places, but also extremely interesting in the upper end of what is known as Voyvoda Street and then becomes Bankalar street closer to Galata. This is walking distance from SALT Galata and famous places such as Galata Tower, Persembe Pazari, Tunel and many other wonderful places in Istanbul. I can only recommend it extremely highly -- that is, if you want to experience the real life of Istanbul.

  • Yuky was helpful in his responses, and also helped me obtain private transportation to his place from Ataturk. He met the driver and walked me to the nearby flat, and helped me with my big bag up the stairs as well. The flat was comfortable and clean. Very nice bed, nice water pressure in the shower. The power went out briefly a couple times, NOT AT ALL my hosts' fault of course, but somewhat normal at times in Istanbul, I am told, and not really a problem (but realize that if the power is briefly out, there is also no internet or hot water). The flat is located in a quiet side street not far downhill a few streets from Galata Tower, perhaps a little hard to find if you don't know where you are going, I would imagine, but I had no problems. The area seemed very safe. During my stay I had 2 different friends visit me there in the evening time, and I am afraid that it was, unfortunately, an annoyance to my hosts, in spite of my efforts to be quiet as possible, for which I truly felt very sorry! So if you want to have your friends drop by and hang out with you, it will be better for you to get a private flat, rather than rent a room in theirs. However, we discussed the issue and it was resolved to everyone's satisfaction, I hope. When I became aware of their feelings on the matter, I did not have any more guests visit during the remainder of my stay, and so it was not a problem, I think. A lot of days we didn't really see much of each other, because we all stayed quite busy with our own schedules. Overall, I enjoyed being there very much. Be sure to visit Yuky's Velvet Cafe near the Tower, the tea and hospitality are really nice! Thanks again, Onur and Yuky!

    December 2013
  • Yuki was a loving and caring host. The flat is located perfectly and clean. I'd do it again!

    November 2013
  • Yuksel was an excellent host! He gave us excellent directions to his cafe which from there we had a short walk to the apartment. Onur and Bardem (the cat) were nice house mates but mostly we had the run of the flat.

    Yuksel also had great local knowledge and showed us the sights of Istanbul and also some directions to a shoe repairer which would have been impossible had I attempted it myself.

    November 2013
  • Great little place hidden in a small street close to the Galata tower. Yuksel is very friendly. And he has opened a beautiful new cafe in the neighborhood called Velvet. Go check it out!
