I've been at Yunus apartment for one week. It has been a pleasant stay: the room is basic but clean and comfortable. The apartment is located in a safe district in Uskudar, not far from ferryboats and from Marmaray station (the fastest way to get there from Ataturk airport is taking the metro to Zetinburnu, then taking the bus MR10 from there to Kazlicesme station and finally getting on the Marmaray train until Uskudar: it takes about one hour/ one hour and half, that's quite normal for such a big city), and from a nice and cheap little market. Uskudar district is less touristic than other Istanbul areas, so more quiet and cheap. You'll need to take the ferry to go to the european side, it's quick (15 minutes to Eminonou) and it's really a pleasure! You may also sip your tea or having breakfast on the ferry. As already told, if you have mobility problems (or just you dn't want to climb at the end of the day!) it's better to choose another accommodation because the apartment is located on a little hill, and also in the bathroom the shower is inside a bath tub. On the other hand the view from the living room is really beautiful. Anyway, unless you plan to spend quite a lot of time in the flat, the view from the balcony should not be the first criteria for your choice, since there are many places in Istanbul where you can enjoy marvellous panoramas of the city. Yunus has been kind since he came to pick me up at Marmaray station on my arrival at night. After that we hadn't many interactions, depending on our schedules...what a pity!
It was a pleasure to stay at Yunus flat. He and his flatmate are very kind and the view over Bosporus from the bedroom really is awsome! The flat is also very close to busstops and the ferry station, so that you can easily and quickly go to Kadiköy or Besiktas/Eminönü.
L'appartement est situé dans un quartier non touristique sur la rive asiatique. L'accès à l'embarcadère se fait en 15mn à pied via un quartier commerçant et agréable. La vue de la grande terrasse sur la rive européenne d'Istanbul est fantastique. Yunus et son ami sont très accueillants et disponible. L’immeuble est calme, dans une rue non bruyante. Cet appartement est idéal pour ceux qui désirent s'éloigner des sites touristiques et se plonger dans la vie des Stambouliotes.
The view from Yunus's apartment worth every penny I spent. Simply awesome! With this view, you can just stay home, have breakfast, and your dinner at the balcony, and enjoy your trip. I was really lucky to get this house and meet Yunus and his friend.
There are a couple points you should consider renting this place: 1st, the apartment is located over a little hill and you need to take stairs to get there. Well, this is why you get this gorgeous view from Istanbul, but if you have accessibility issues, it is not the best one for you. 2nd, it is located on the Asian side of Istanbul. We loved taking ferry boats to the other side, and that was one of the best experiences of staying in Istanbul. However, if you are taking a business trip or you have to be in the European side for your appointments and stuff, it might be a little hard to commute between these two sides of Istanbul. 3rd, Uskudar is a little religious neighborhood. We were very comfortable, and people were very respectful, but there is no local bar or club around. It could be a different experience though.
Yunus's house is quite big and very comffy. It is absolutely perfect for family trips. There were very minor issues with the house that Yunus and his friend took care of as soon as we let them know. Overall, I had a very good experience staying at his house. Thanks!
Last point, again, the view from this house is priceless! And the rent is quite fair if not cheap for this house. I would recommend you contacting Yunus directly.
What an amazing view ! If you wanna wake up and have a wonderful look of Istanbul from Asia to Europe, then this is the place to live and that too at an affordable price. The only glitch with the place is that it is not that easy to find especially later in the night. Otherwise there are only pros. Right from Yunus who is a very helpful, religious, young and cultured person to the authentic feel of Asian side of Istanbul to the general cleanliness and quietness in the house, everything in this place is perfect ! And coming from Adana (kebab !!), Yunus surely knows the best place to eat out food in the city !

We had a wonderful time staying with Yunus in his big house in Istanbul. Yunus was extremely helpful and knowledgable with regard to touring the city and recemmending activities.
We are more than happy to recommend this host toall and any travellers looking for a comfortable and affordable base in Istanbul with a stunning view of the city which is easy to travel around in via the excellent public transport.
The rooms are private with your own bathroom and a shared kitchen and Yunus is a wonderful host.
As room is on last floor you have a great view from window. Yunus is a really good host and a grand barbeque master! He made a barbeque grill for us in our last night in istanbul.
Just can recommand and i hope i also come again.
Great place! Magnificent view, big room, separate bath, friendly host - all what we need. I think that Asian side is an advantage of this place. That is quieter, cheaper, more authentic. The house is not far from ferry and you can very easily and quickly get to European side of city or Galata. It just 10-15 min a pleasant trip across Bosphorus by boat. I very liked this place. I liked how this place sounds, I liked sunny view and foggy view of Bosphorus. I liked huge white cruise ships and much more.
His friends were very nice. They are neatly and kind. They are welcome next time.
Yunes stayed in our apartment for 3 days. No complains at all, he left the apartment clean and tidy. Would definitely have him as guest again.
Yunus und seine Freunde waren nett und freundlich.
avec Yunus et ses amis j'ai partagé de très beaux moments, une très belle rencontre humaine et culturelle. J'espère pouvoir les rencontrer très prochainement à Istanbul.
