With so many unmissable attractions within a mere
stroll of each other – and all set around the site of
an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an
overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a
prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly

relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to

HI, I will take tram from Ataturk airport to sultanahmet stop. I will be satying at Sultan hostel. I like to know how far one has to walk from tram stop to sultan hostel as i am having three peices of lugage to carry with me.
Hi there. The tram stop to the Hostel is about 1-1.5 kms roughly. If your luggage has wheels then it shouldn't be a problem walking.

Is it safe to keep your luggage at the hostel ?
I let them during my three-day stay and I did not have any problem ;-)

Which is the cheapest way of getting from Ataturk airport to Sultan Hostel and back?
A combination of the tram(above ground) and subway (below ground). You can buy tickets at the station once you get there. You will get off at the Sultanahmet stop and walk to Sultan from there. Hope that helps!

Merhaba 8-9 aralık günü rezervasyon yaptırmak istiyorum 1 bay 1 bayan 2 kişiyiz engel oluşturacak herhangi bir kuralınız var mı?
Hello! I ask you two questions: 1- Can two people stay in the room? 2- Is the room accessed by stairs? My mom wants to go with me, and she has difficulty climbing stairs. Many thanks
"6 Person shared dorm is better than 8 person shared."
"This is a wonderfully located hostel, with bars, clubs and attractions all around."
"Ask for a room that's towards the side of the property and as high as you can manage. It gets you away from the street noise."
"I loved my private room (w/ shared bathroom). Quiet and great value."
"I got a single with my own bathroom. Was not much more expensive. Air conditioner worked just fine."
