Location, location! Our hostel is located in the beating heart of Istanbul.

Already the coolest hostel of Istanbul! Now with Air Conditioning in all rooms and dorms!

We're only a two minutes' walk from Istiklal Street (where there are 2000 bars and restaurants), one minute from Galata Tower (built in 1384) and 15 minutes from Sultanahmet (historical area) by public transportation.

We offer a complimentary breakfast as well as 10% discounts for guests at our restaurant. Linen, pillows and blankets are included. You're welcome to use our luggage storage room free of charge for up to three days.

Our reception and information desk are open 24hrs a day, offering discounted hamam, dervish shows and bus tickets.

Our historical building is 150 years old. You will stay in a gorgeous stone building which has lots of architectural character and history behind it. We are in love with our hostel, and we hope you will be, too :)

Istiklal Street is full of energy. Two million people visit in any given day. Even at 5am there is a bunch of people... the music never stops. You can find the best live bands, world music, oriental Turkish music and dance music. With all these on offer at your doorstep, this is the perfect place to stay. We will show you best and most affordable places, where local people go.

We will guide you to visit not only tourist places but also bars, restaurants and historic places that you can't find in your favourite tourist book.

We look forward to meeting you soon.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The hostel had a relaxing and hip atmosphere and it is a five minute walk from all the Turkish nightlife. The service was great and they made us feel right at home. Plus, the rooms and showers were clean, I felt safe leaving my valuables behind and the Turkish breakfast was a delicious surprise! We cannot wait to come back!

Staff was really helpful and kind. Location was great. Close to everything (Istiklal and the old city) and still a quit street. Perfect combination.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Had a good time here! Sadly cannot remember the name of the guy on during the day but he was very helpful. Nice & clean, bit of a mission with heavy backpacks to get to from the square.
Perfect location if you are looking to party every night in the Beyoglu district, quick tram ride over to all the sites. Loved the traditional brekky!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed at world house with four of my friends for a night. when we went to the hostel, the room was not ready for us although it was known that we would arrive at that time.we left for two hours both to eat sth and give time to them make the room ready,but when we went back after four hours, the room was still not ready. the room was not clean but the toilet was good.the location is good.the hostel can be prefable but ı think there should be more concern on cleanliness and service.
