About Cheers Hostel

Recommended in Lonely Planet 2011 !!!

Cheers Hostel has been voted the Best Rated Hostel of Turkey by Hostelworld.com customer in September 2011.

Cheers Hostel Istanbul is located in a perfect location right in the very heart of the Old City of Istanbul, in Sultanahmet. We are only 1 minute walking distance from the most famous sights like Hagia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Underground Cistern and Topkapi Palace, not to mention the Grand Bazaar and many other sightseeing attractions of oriental Istanbul.

Our Istanbul hostel offers a comfortable, clean and budget stay in a warm and friendly atmosphere. In our lounge area with TV and free Internet & Wi-fi access, you can enjoy a cup of coffee or Turkish tea, read, play backgammon or have a good chat with the other international travelers visiting exciting Istanbul.

Our Wintergarden Panoramic Terrace Bar offers breathtaking views overlooking the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace and Taksim and is open all year long. In the summertime, you can enjoy a refreshing self-mixed Mojito on our bar while sunbathing and relaxing, or in the wintertime, enjoy a hot drink. Make yourself comfortable next to our cozy fireplace and have a glass of wine. We also serve a delicious Turkish breakfast buffet on the terrace.

Our hostel rooms are mostly 6,8 and 10 bed dormitories with individual lockers but we also have a number of budget double rooms, triple rooms, twin-bed rooms and family rooms.

Please note that some properties require a small deposit for a key or padlock to the lockers, although in most instances guests would be able to use their own padlock without charge.

There are common showers and bathrooms on the corridors. Private rooms have air-conditioning and dormitories have fans and all rooms have heating. Linen and towels are included.

Our helpful and friendly reception will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

We will help you with the latest information about the hippest clubs, restaurants and bars.

If it is called a dormitory, it will imagine that there is durty as for nothing, but it is really clean here and it is a cheap good place. A location is also the highest and very pleasing.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

What worked -

We stayed in the Magnolia private suite in a building which is a little away from the main Cheers Hostel. The hotel is in the heart of Sultanahmet right next to all the major sights. Also the hostel provided free Wifi and water (unique in all the places we stayed in Turkey). The room was huuuugge. I think a family of 4 could have easily fit in the room

What Didn't work -

Check in was delayed by a couple of hours because the cleaning lady was swamped. We had to wait to check in after a long bus journey. The bed was really really high. I am 6-2 but getting on the bed felt like climbing Mt.Everest. This can be annoying if you get up often at night. Also, the room was on the 4th floor and the room had only one AC which was really far from the bed. THis meant that the room warm at night.

Overall - For the price that we paid for a 2 people room I think there are better hotels available in Sultanahmet itself.

I hıghly recommend thıs hostal. Clean, comfortable beds and sheets. Great vıew.
The staff has some of the frıendlıest people I have met and are very helpful. They really want to make your experıence ın Turkey pleasant and gıve you ınformatıon and good advıce.

Cheers also attracts nıce guests from all over the world, overall you can feel a nıce communıty.

It ıs located ın an excellent place near all the maın attractıons. Only downfall ıs that ıt ıs dıffıcult to fınd ıt sınce ıt ıs at an alley and many taxıs havent heard of ıt or pretend they dont know where ıt ıs (carefull wıth that...bad eperıence). Internet sıte neads to gıve better dırectıons ın how to get there.

As far as the dorm room, everythıng was almost perfect, but there was only one electrıcıty outlet for a room of sıx, and our door was very squıcky, so ıt woke people up when you try to get ın late al nıght.

Very warmhearted and helpful young staff. Great roof terrace with bar and an amazing view on the colose Hagia Sophia. I can completely recommend to stay here with one drawback: In the our freshly renovated and nice furbished room the ventialtion was missing (yet?). Thus air moisture became unbearable und even walls went wet. I hope they improve that very quickly!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Excellent location, nice breakfast, but some rooms were not ready for guests. They still had to fix some stuff in our room during our stay and in the morning we were not waked by the sound of an imam but by someone using a drill in another room.

We stayed for 5 nights, and it would also have been nice if they came to clean the room at least once, our empty the garbage bin, or change the towels...

Some advantages: free internet, free water, nice bar, great view, right in the middle of a great city 'Istanbul'.
