There is some problems with the bathroom. when you take a shower you create a big flood becuse the shower is next to the toilet and there's no curtain. It's a good and affordable place to be in the heart of Sultanahmet!

The location of the hostel is perfect, very near the Blue Mosgue and Aya Sofia, the views from the terrace are wonderful and the people at the reception really nice.
A place to recommend, if I come back to Istanbul I will stay there again!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We selected Nobel for the price and location and I was not disappointed. For the price we paid it ticked all the boxes and included a simple cold breakfast. The room we had was a reasonable sized triple room which had a double bed and one single with a small balcony and ensuite bathroom. We had air conditioning, but our friends who had a double with shared bath did not, so make sure of this when you book as we were told on arrival that shared bath rooms DO NOT have air-con. It said it accepted credit cards, but it was broken so we were expected to pay cash on arrival or settle up later that day. There was a tv in the room but we couldn't get it to work, not that that bothered us as we didn't spend that much time there anyway. Probably the best features are the overall location and its roof terrace where we spent a lot of time in the evening just taking in the spectacular views. There is a restaurant/bar next door that offers a 10% discount on food for guests although we didn't eat there but did stop for a drink on several occasions as it has a happy hour. There was internet access but it was slow, but this was a re-occurring theme in all the places we stayed in Turkey. We hadn't noticed until our last night that there is a row of restaurants at the bottom of the street/hill down a side street. All the rooms we had between us (as a group of seven) were private rooms and not dorm rooms. All in all I was satisfied with the room for the price we paid and would stay here again.
