I studied Tourism and Hotel Management and recently working as a Cabin Crew for Turkish Airlines. I love to meet people, love to gain new friends, and host them as ideally as i can do.

The room and apartment were just as described. I hadn't realized it was a share, but it turns out that Firat wasn't home during our time there so that worked out. He waited for us to arrive and answered our questions about the city. It was a brief meeting but sufficient and he answered all of our remaining questions on whatsapp. We had a lovely stay there and had pretty much everything we needed. The only thing that worried me at first was the dark street it's on, but it turned out to be an okay neighborhood. There's a very friendly market nearby for necessities if you're cooking and the location is fantastic for walking all over the city.
The apartment is walking distance from all the main sightseeings.
Firat was an amazing host. His place is great: spacious, clean, well located. I couldn't ask for more:)
Firat was very welcoming and helpful, he help us with lots of information and tips about the city.
The room is exectaly like the description and thelocation is very central and perfect.
We felt at home, the apartment was clean and warm when we got there, Firat was very responsive and accomodating. The neighborhood is very quiet, there was no noise at all, and was conveniently located. It was overall a great experience.
Leuk appartement op loopafstand van taksim en de galata toren. Leuke uitvals basis om het centrum van istanbul te ontdekken
Spent 4 nights at Firat's in Beyoglu 1 week ago with a friend. Apart from the fact that the city is beautiful, Firat's welcome was warm and sweet, he gave us all the info we asked for and our first bite of Turkish food. The flat is cozy (the bed like a cloud!) and only minutes away from bars and restaurants off lively Istiklal. We walked to the old town every day and Firat made sure everything was fine throughout our stay.
We can't wait to go back to Istanbul, thank you Firat and Ilkay!
We had a great stay in Istanbul. The apartment is cosy, big enough for 2 people and nice decorated. The communication with our host Firat was always easy and friendly, so he gave us a warm welcome, when we arrived. Unfortunately our luggage was lost in Belgrade for 4 days and Firat gave us some clothes and was in contact with the airport in Istanbul every day till our baggage was delivered. A big TESEKGÜLER for that. The apartment is nearby the main shopping street Istiklal (5 min by walk) and very central located to all shops, bars and restaurants. Firat gave us some very good tips where to go out and 2 times we did it together.We totally enjoyed our stay the whole week. Everytime again!
Das Zimmer ist einfach aber gut eingerichtet und das Apartment ist in einer sehr zentralen Lage. Firat hat uns gleich mit ein paar nützlichen Tipps versorgt und hat viele Prospekte und Reiseführer für die Gäste parat. Wir würden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
Great apartment that was clean and exactly as described. Located very close to the main shopping street with many restaurants and bars nearby. Can be a little tricky to find but after calling, Firat picked me up at a nearby hotel. Firat is a great guy and gave me a warm welcome into his home.
They were my first guests ever and i could not be more grateful to have Ilkay as my guest. He was so charming and polite. They left my apartment super clean and even left me presents!!! Thank you thank you thank you. I hope you will stay at my place more often. Or maybe i will see you in Turkey.
These two good looking dudes stayed with me for about 6 days. What can I say about them, they are incredibly friendly, nice, polite, caring, charming, fun.
They helped me to clean up for the next guests, and I have to say that I took away a few tips from Serhat on how to make a bed!
Super nice guys, I hope that I will have the honor to stay with them in Istanbul.
The most amazing man I met in Istanbul! I would stay with him anytime!
Except beeing a very nice person he is also really good at knowing how to have fun, where to have fun. Dont hesitate and never think twice, he is a great host. Plus the house is damn beautiful!
I met Ilkay while working in Istanbul in 2008 and we have remained in contact ever since (I emigrated to the US in 2010) I observed his creative eye and impressive talent in photography while working on a joint visual project - he made ordinary products look extraordinary! Ilkay is a stylish, young, responsible, worldy wise, open minded, and instantly like able person, who is questioning and liberal in his thinking...Ilkay is fun, energetic, enthusiastic, totally has his finger on the pulse as far as whats hot and happening in Istanbul - so if you want to know whats going down / where the parties at - Ilkay's your best bet! As your host he'll take great care of you, make sure you know where to go and what to do...I imagine he might even take your picture if you ask nicely!
