Rating: 4 Reviewed on August 18, 2019

it was located right at istiklal street which is amazing if thats where you want to stay but i won't recommend this to families with old people as there was no lift and the stairs were very narrow...


Our hostel is located 5 minutes walking from Taksim square. From Taksim square you should head forward the famous pedestrian Istiklal street. On the second crossing (where you will notice McDonalds) you turn left and go through this narrow short street where you will find us with the neon sign shining on the left ;)
İf you arrive at Ataturk or Sabiha Gökçen airport you can take a Havabus shuttle bus to Taksim square. Shuttles run every 30 minutes from every airport and the tıcket price is just about 15 Tl.
