Own Mehmet Ali has lived in Istanbul for almost 40 years and knows all the best, local spots for sight-seeing, eating out and partying without having to spend a fortune. He even likes to take groups out on the weekend to Taksim for some Turkish dance nights; a safe, fun and cheap night out. In the summertime you can join us for two weekly eat-togethers: a street barbecue out on the porch and Ottoman cuisine-filled Manti night.
The hostel offers free WiFi. Computer, telephone, fax, printing and scanning facilities are available for a nominl fee. There is a communal kitchen for those who want to cook up some of the amazing ingredient on offer in all of the bazaars and markets around the city. Laundry service is also offered and luggage storage is provided for tour-goers and late-leavers.
If you cancel two days before arrival day, there is no charge for the cancellation. If not, we do charge the total amount of your booking.
