Located in the heart of Istanbul, in Sultanahmet, our hostel is near the Blue Mosque, St Sophia and Topkapi Palace. It is also within walking distance of many popular tourist spots such as the Grand Bazaar, the Underground Cistern, the Turkish baths and much more.

We host BBQ parties on our terrace overlooking the Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. In fact, our terrace is one of the only places in Istanbul where you can eat a local Turkish breakfast while gazing out at these sights! Plus, we offer free Turkish tea and coffee.

With no curfew, we welcome you to hang out and meet people from all over the world in our warm and friendly hostel. We have free internet and Wi-Fi as well as a big screen TV with cable. Our reception desk are happy to help you with your travel plans, organising international and domestic flights, local tours, dinner cruises, and daily and weekly tours of Troy, Gallipoli, Cappadocia, Ephesus, and Pamukkale. We can also sort out tickets for a belly dance show and dinner!

Come visit us at the Best Island Hotel, where our motto is, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. We offer a 5% discount to groups of more than 20 people!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I've been privileged enough to have travelled extensively and can say, without hesitation, that this is the worst hostel/ accomodation that I've encountered. This was due, primarily, to the ineptitude of staff and their apathetic approach to "hospitality". On the upside, the terrace offers a fine view. Unfortunately this view will be obstructed once the adjacent building has been completed.
