Istanbul

Istanbul, the city which divides Asia and Europe, is the only city in the world which is situated on two continents. This city of (officially) 13 million inhabitants - the largest city in Turkey - celebrates a unique culture which fuses eastern and western influences and a history stretching back as far as 5500 BC.

This is a great hostel. Although I only stayed here for 2 nights, I like it. Very warm and nice staff, like friends. Pretty good location which is just a few minutes to the most prosperous street in central Istanbul. A lot of young travelers coming here and having fun. I do will come back if I visit Istanbul again. It will be a very good choice. ... more

A charming and spotlessly clean hostel in a very good location. All Taksim's bars, restaurants and shops are right on your doorstep. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful. The shared bathroom facilities were the only problem, although waiting time was minimal. ... more

Great staff. Great location. We booked outgoing bus tickets through them and they gave us the exact same price as we found online, and they made sure we made it onto the shuttle to the station. Rooftop Patio is the best in the area and amazing for sunsets. Only critique would be the lack of a fan in out room. ... more

Chambers is a well-situated hostel that's good for one thing: Laying your head at night. It's not the best place for meeting fellow travelers as there is no real common area.
