A cosy bedroom in a quiet old appartement renovated tastefully and really authentic with all conveniences. A fridge and a little kitchen at disposal, the bathroom is common with other bedrooms in the same flat but really good and clean.
The location is perfect at the foot of the Galata Tower.
The team of hosts was really friendly and gave us useful informations. The breakfast proposed was good and complete in the reception building with nice atmosphere.
Our stay was really a pleasure, I would go back for sure during a next trip in Istanbul.

Great location, nice flat buuuuut very very dirty! We stayed there for 4 nights and the bathroom was cleaned once (after we complained!). The toilet paper run out and we had to pick up some at the hostel.

Amazing central location. Nice place- good facilities (bathroom did have some cleanliness issues and sink tended to get clogged a lot). Overall very good price and a great deal!

The apartment itself was alright - we were out most of the day and only in the apartment to sleep. It sufficed for our needs. If you aren't planning on going out all day, you might want to look elsewhere; the apartment has just a bed and a table with two chairs.

We did have some issues: one day, there was no electricity. Another day, no water and twice we couldn't get warm water out of the shower. For us this wasn't that big of a deal, because it was all working again when we came back in the evening.

All in all, we were satisfied.

A beautiful room, located literally opposite the Galata Tower with a minimalist decor. It is housed in a lovely 19th/early 20th century buliding.
Apart from the room itself the location was amazing! 5/8 mins from the Galata Bridge, 5 to 10 mins to the hip and happening parts of Beyoğlu with lots of nice cafes and restaurants within 5 mins of walk!
Our host Samane was very helpful and friendly and even gave us the room with a nicer view for the same price! Free breakfast was also provided at the world house hostel (which is 2 mins walk from the room)!

Great, clean and large room, a little noisy at night due its very central location. Ideal position to get to most places in the city and easy to find after a city venture....'just look for the tower' which can be seen from pretty much everywhere!

Private double room.Best location,reasonable price...

La habitación estaba muy bien, acogedora y con una estupenda localización para visitar la parte más monumental de la ciudad. A Martín no llegamos a conocerlo pero el personal del hostel nos atendió con mucha amabilidad. Una gran experiencia, sin duda repetiremos.
