That was such a nice place to stay and visit Istanbul.
The neighboorhood is full of life and you can find anything you need.
Furthermore, Purun and Anil were very welcoming and gave us some nice places to go to (rooftops and quality kebabs place).
We highly recommend their flat.

Very friendly host! Very kind of them to give up their house for 2 nights! Very authentic turkish experience in a real turkish neighborhood.
It was a quite nice experience. The house was so clean and it really look like its pictures. Anyone can be sure about you don't face with any bad situation. Purun and Anil was so friendly also. They helped so much. Feel free to contact them :)
They were accommodating with my arrival time and the flat was clean, warm and comfortable. I was worried in Istanbul it wouldn't be too warm - but it was great. There was a wonderful garden and great washer dryer facilities.
The location is AMAZING. I loved discovering besiktas, with its fishmarkets, restaurants and ferries. I would stay here again a second.
We stayed with Anil and Purun and it was a nice experience. The apartment is located in the basement of a building in Besiktas and is close to the Bosphorus. The location is quaint and has all the shopping one may desire and there's lots of nice fresh produce near by and two convenience stores that are open till the wee hours of the morning. Anil welcomed my friend and was very helpful in providing us with directions to reach the apartment. The wifi was of good quality, reliable and fast. Taksim square is about 15-20 minutes by cab and may cost up to 15 TL. We weren't fussed about the distance since we enjoyed walking and exploring places, and who's to say that Taksim is the center, really? It was really cold (Below 0'C) in Istanbul and the apartment's heating system was adequate. We found the apartment cozy, spacious, and warm. The apartment was also well stocked with toilet paper, fresh towels and all kitchen utensils. We would consider staying with Anil and Purun again, and would recommend the following to our hosts, so as to optimise future visits to their home:
1- The water temperature was unpredictable, some fixtures in the apartment such as the lights, shower taps, shower head and the kitchen need quite a bit of revamping. It may be wise to invest in some upgrades.
2- We would would advise our hosts to make some space for guests to keep their things while staying at the place, perhaps in the shelves and some space in the hanging wardrobe and the toilet.
3- We would like to advise our hosts to get the apartment cleaned prior to the arrival of guests, we found that the garbage was full, the bathroom, fridge and the kitchen were not cleaned prior to our arrival. This remains a shock and i'm sure there's a reasonable explanation. My friend, who had arrived before me, spent approximately 2 hours cleaning the apartment prior to my arrival.
4- I had made a mistake an booked an extra night, our hosts were gracious enough to offer us an extra free night should we decide to stay with them again.
Over all this had been a nice experience and we enjoyed our stay.
Purun and Anil were very responsive to any request we had and the apartment is in a great location!

I only met Anil the last minute before I checked out. The apartment is really nice and spacious and more enough space for one person. They are excellent communicators and made my stay there easy and simple. They left me clean sheets and towels to use. The place was close to transportation and many restaurants. If I come to Istanbul again, I would stay at this apartment. Thanks for everything!
We had a great time at Pürün and Anıl's apartment. I didn't have a chance to meet Pürün in person, but she was very helpful and prompt on email/phone. We saw Anıl for one second, and he seemed like a friendly and lovely person.
We felt very at home and comfortable in Besiktas. The garden was wonderful for chilling, and Jorn was happy to have a choice to watch football at home (email hidden) :)
The neighborhood is great, much better than Sulanahmet. I really recommend their place!
Pürün Hanımı misafir etmekten mutluluk duyduk. Kendisi ile tanışmaktan ok mutlu olduk.
It has been great pleasure having Pürün and Anil at our place. They are very attentive, warm and friendly. Please welcome them anywhere, anytime.
