Not cheap for what you get but then most of Istanbul was more expensive than I was expecting considering the YTL has devalued recently - and, despite what Lonely Planet suggests , we didn't,t get laid!
We booked the Orient because my mate had stayed here years ago. We,re both older (and wealthier) now. The location is good being in the old quarter and in a lively street in which the Orient is by far the loudest joint. We shared what was called the suite (room 202) and this was perfectly adequate providing you don,t expect things like change of towels and sheets (at least there were sheets!) I wouldn't,t like to stay in the dorm, but that,s me. If you,re young and into all that implies you,ll probably enjoy the Orient big time.

Lots of stairs . We are 56 & 69 in good shape. But climbing steep stairs wouldn't suite mature couples with knee or hip problems. Our private room & bathroom at back of building was quiet by 11 pm. Front rooms were noisy. Light from hostel across street bright but with eye masks had good night sleep.
Barak helped us take our bags to our room at check-in. He and other staff were always friendly & willing to help or answer questions. For example when internet was not working from our room or helping us with directions. While we were only mature couple first 2 nights the next two nights other mature couples were there on recommendation of friend. Breakfast buffet basic but included healthy cold and hot options. Rooftop view and view from breakfast room overlooks sea. Grocery store across s street. Restaurant menu has good prices. Calamity, soup, burger and beer all tasty and good value. Room had good matress, was basic but very clean.

The atmosphere there is very nice. I was alone for 7 nights, but have met great people from all around. The staff does a really great job to set the right mood, it has a nice terrace to hang out at the front of the hostel where you can eat, drink and smoke lots of shisha! Small room with 6 beds but big enough for sleeping and some lockers too big enough for backsack etc. -the staff is excellent -breakfast is included (and not bad) -rooftop, usual for sitting more quiet

Everything was perfect. No complaint
First, I would like to mention of the outstanding hospitality of the management and staffs. No problem they can not really resolve. They are very friendly, helpful, professional. Giving 5* star services. (Thank you very much) The hostel lies next to Haggia Sophia (within 200 m), just turn right, and walk down in the street. Also very close to the Blue Mosque. The hostel has a roof-top terrace for dinning and chilling out. The view is just amazing!

Its rooms are poorly finished, way over priced, not well serviced, no shampoo, limited soap, mattresses uneven, generally sadly kinda forgotten. If it wants to stay in this business it needs to smarten the rooms for this kind of price $90 ish per night.
Its location is superb and staff amazing. Outside a great street lounge area for people gazing having a beer and snacks. Really lovely.

Some staff weren't very helpful and a smile can go along way especially if you're alone !
The place is on a great st, its fun and close to sight seeing ! I loved sitting out the front and sipping on a drink watching people go by !

It didn't bother me but you have to know that music is going to play loud at night time in the street. In the other hand, it's sometimes entertaining to look through the window.
Really nice reception guy Proximity of most attractions Friendly atmosphere (made some friends)
