The shower was down 4 flights of stairs and the toilets are tiny. You can wash one hand at a time and you need to spit like a goose when you brush your teeth as the sink is so awkward. It's too hot in the rooms and there are no staff to help with things, just people who run the cafe. It's a rudimentary run down hostel with no services. The area is good though.
6 bed dorm was clean, beds very comfortable, mattresses felt new and comfy, the shower is in the basement and was always clean with good shower and hot water. The staff were very friendly, welcoming, helpful and laid back, plus several of the staff had a good level of English so it was easy to communicate any needs. It's a good economical choice place to stay for a few days and there are lots of cheap food, drink and social places to choose from all minutes away. All public transport to main sites are 5 to 10min away.
Just a friendly recommendation: The kitchen was a little sad, it could do with an update some new pots, pans, cutlery and kettle. But if your not planning on making your own food then it's no problem. Though a functional kettle would gave been appreciated. Maybe a new quieter swing fan for the 6 bed dorm room would be nice also, so everyone gets the benefit of cool air and not just the loud noise of a big oversized static fan that disturbs sleep sometimes.
Big Hello to guy cleaning the rooms, you are the man!
Hostel is in a great location for reaching different districts in İstanbul. You can use shared kitchen. Terrace has a great landscape and comfortable for drinking some :)
Rooms are cleaned daily as well as the bathroom and toilets. Staffs were really super nice especially the owner.
