Score from 221 reviews Very good
These are not important remarks: breakfast is not very strong and it is the same every day. TV has only one channel, if it works. These things need improvement, but were definitely not deal breakers. Besides, you are outside all day for sightseeing and if you have a lap top, it is fine.
Location: just 10 minutes from everything. Price: very low price for great value. Staff: Very very kind and helpful staff, english speaking, very comfortable, safe, cozy, pleasant and clean. I will recommend them to everyone and if I go to Istanbul again, I will stay at the same place:)
Closeness to all the famous sites. Really nice & helpful staff.
Staff are very accomodating and friendly
There was a problem with hot water in our room and as we were staying for the weekend they couldn't do much about it...however, I have read one review about this problem from before and we visited in March so it was quite unpleasant to have cool showers. The noise was also a big problem, mostely due to a group from Georgia who came to watch some sports and would come back to the hotel late at night and shout in no so well insulated coridors. The hotel needs to get a curfew policy.
Staff was very kind, especially Muhamed. Location is absolutely great, so close to Blue Mosque...if you are trying to find it just go past Blue Mosque down the hill and after one right turn you should be able to spot it if you know what the building looks like.
The Bathroom, is very small, a needs some problems whit it, incosintent the hot water
The location, nice staff specially at night very helpful
Noisy, dirty, unconfortable beds, unpleasant people... There is no reason to book a room. If you have a problem don't expect any help, especially not from the management.
I didn't like anything.

Hotel had problems with electricity and our room was one night and morning totally without electricity and heating. It was so damn cold! Hotel staff offered new room in the middle of the night but my travel companion was already at sleep so we didn't change the room. I asked for compensation but got none. During our last day the staff brought hair dryer to our room - why not already in the beginning?
Good location near to main attractions and good place to stay for backpackers. Staff was mainly friendly and offered free apple tea in the evenings when we came back to the hotel.
Our door couldn't lock and the sheets the first day weren't very clean
We loved the welcoming atmosphere, the apple tea they offered and the smile of people working there. It is just next to Blue Mosche and near to touristic stuff.
old building .... the water was cold no warm ... very small rooms ... very bad wi-fi ...
Near the old town city !! and the staf was very frendly .
It was not terribly clean; it's the level of cleanliness you might expect from a hostel.
The location is excellent, and the staff are very friendly. We felt very welcome as a family with young children.
The toilet very small.
Very good Breakfast, the staff very friendly and good apple tea. Good location,very close to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia
This hostel needs just a little renovation:)
We hightly recommend this hostel. Great location, reasonable price (including breakfast) and extremely professional, kind and helpful staff.
One star quality cleanliness, rooms and linens but can't beat the price if you are not picky.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Location is great. Very near historical center in safe area.
The staff was very kind and helpful, they gave us a lot of information about the city. Family Istanbul is located literally in the heart of Istanbul :)
A little bit noisy
Friendly staff Location All that you need for a few days of traveling
Our room was near reception, even that wi-fi was not working or we had problems with connection
good food, great location around 10 minutes to Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia.
Nothing to complain, really. 6일이나 여기 묵었어요 ㅎㅎ
Great location with nice service and delicious breakfast. I was so comfortable here. 숙소 위치 좋고 직원들 친절하고 아침 깔끔하게 잘 나옵니다. 가격대비 만족할만 합니다.
Perfect stuff, amazing location, unbelievable price-performance ratio :)
Not clean ...
Room is so small and during shower time the shower head was broken water can not control be every where and then power outage, I can see nothing!
Going up and down the spiral staircase with a heavy suitcase. In their favour, they did have a staff member who helped.
Location,WiFi, Spacious room, Value for money. The highlight of the stay was Ayvaz, the owner, who provided excellent advice and was always ready for a chat after a day of sightseeing. He gave the best suggestion to visit Eyup Sultan, a place which I hadn't heard of, and ended up being one of my favourite spots in Istanbul. Ayvaz even sent an email bidding us goodbye as we did not meet on check out. Overall I am very happy with the service and would not hesitate to stay here again.
no wifi in the room
Very good loacation. Very warm-hearted staff
The room is small but comfortable.
The location is great, 800 m from Ayasofia and blue Mosque, its a quiet place, lots of tourists in the area, the hotel has free parking spots and the staff is pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is fine.
We stayed for five nights and liked it. The personal is very friendly and very helpful. The room was small but enough and comfortable. All the important locations were not far away from the hotel. All in all it was a great holiday with the family.
