About Istanbul Harmony Hostel

Istanbul Harmony Hostel is located in the heart of the old city of Istanbul between Sultanahmet and Sirkeci. The area is considered the spiritual capital of old Istanbul and our location is the perfect base to explore the cultural heritage of the city!

A 5-10 minute walk from our door brings you to renowned historic locations such as Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Gülhane Park, the Spice Market, the Grand Bazaar and the Bosphorus waterside. Public transit is at our doorstep and will carry you to attractions such as Taksim square, Galata Tower and Eyüp Mosque. The nearby waterside offers you ferries & cruises along the Bosphorus to the Asian side of Istanbul, Princes Island, Dolmahabace Palace, Golden Horn, Maidens Tower and more!

Harmony Hostel has been newly redecorated for 2013 and we invite you to enjoy our comfortable 6-8 bed mixed or female dormitories. Or book one of two affordable private rooms with either 3 or 4 beds and comfortable seating to relax and chat to friends in. Harmony Hostel is happy to provide you with sheets, blankets, a pillow and a towel. All rooms feature 24 hour hot water, ensuite showers, and separate ensuite toilets.

Our inviting beds are individual single size beds rather than bunk beds and all have space built-in underneath to store your luggage. In addition to our under-bed storage, feel free to request the complimentary use of one of the lockers located in your room.

Our reception desk is open 24hrs a day and we're ready to offer you information you need during your stay in Istanbul! We are pleased to offer recommendations for local Turkish baths (hammams), tours, restaurants, entertainment, and attractions. We happily offer to arrange your tours to other historic sites across Turkey such as Cappadocia, Ephesus, and Pamukkale. Should you require a shuttle service to or from the airport we can arrange that for you (please note there is a fee for the airport shuttle).

We offer free WiFi connection in the rooms, on the terrace and at the reception desk.

From our open-air rooftop terrace guests can delight in the beautiful panoramic view over Topkapi, Hagia Sophia and Gülhane Park or the Bosphorus Strait during both day and night. We offer nargile, beer, wine, tea, soft drinks and have become well-known for our rooftop barbecues!

Breakfast is included with all accommodation. Why not start your day eating breakfast and chatting with other travellers at our terrace cafe. It runs from 8:00am to 10:00am everyday and features cheese, olives, eggs, bread, tomato, cucumber, jam, Turkish tea, apple tea and coffee.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff was so nice and friendly, really helped us with any kind of problem.
Actually, we had booked a room with private bath but what really happened that only the shower was ensuite. They accept credit card but there is a 7% extra charge that its not written anywhere.


This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I had a good time at Istanbul Harmony Hostel

At first sight the hostel did not match my expectations though. But I stayed there for 11 nights and saw things changing and getting better:
the showers were fixed, the girls dorm moved to the fifth floor where there are girl-only showers), Wifi was installed,...

The hostel is new and the owners, a friendly young couple, are working to make the hostel match their customers expectations.

The location is superb. Very close to the tramstation and Sultanahmet and very close to the ferries. Enough places to eat and shops in the neighbourhood.

Cleanliness. Some days good, other days the cleaning could be better. Anyway it's an enormous work to get the cleaningjob done (carpets,...).

Facilities: there's air conditioning, but not yet in every room. very good and new mattressess, good working hot showers (most with good shower heads). breakfast, Wifi & use of the computer of the hostel. Fridge available for customers, a nice roofterras, nargile, a safe for valuables and every week the hostel organises a barbecue which was very good.

Service: you have to pass through the carpetshop downstairs to get to the rooms, which feels a bit strange at first.
the reception desk is at the sixth floor. -would make more sense downstairs in the shop-
When arriving (at nine in the evening) I did not get information about the hostel (where is the reception, use of computer, breakfast, houserules,...), but in general the staff was very helpfull and tried to find an answer to all my questions (about the hostel, about Istanbul,...)

In general:
This starting hostel is very good value for money. the owners and staff are friendly and they want this place to become a second home for their customers. So if you're on a budget and if you don't mind to sleep in large dorms, then I would certainly give this hostel a try.
