Food is brought from restaurant across the road and is excellent. Try the Testi (a savoury stew cooked in a clay pot) the show is well worth it. The staff go out of their way to please you, and the rooms are very basic but a good size and excellent value.

We stayed here in 2012 and loved it. We stayed in the downstairs dorm, but were the only ones there. It was a little difficult to find at first, but we were surprised by how quiet it was seeing its convenient location, which is very, very central and great for exploring! The staff at the time was great and helpful,...

After much deliberation searching for a place to stay I finally decided on Topdeck and it was a very pleasant experience. I had been coordinating with Emmy (who was very helpful aswell) over email and everything was sorted. A bit of a let down was the fact that the airport pick up that I had booked through the hostel did...

This hostel is situated in Sultanahmet in a quiet street, but in a few moments you will meet a really joyful street, full of restaurants and cafè. The hostel is a few steps from all the main tourist attractions: Saint Sofia, Basilic Cistern, Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, etc. Topdeck has many kind of rooms: big for a lot of people...

A young Aussie/Turkish couple, Emmy and Metin run this place. Very much on the ball. Breakfast is served on the roof with a view to die for. Spotlessley clean. Stayed there late May 2011 and was very impressed. Emmy particularly is very efficient/calm. Her and her partner (soon-to-be-husband) I wish all the best. Topdeck Cafe has accommodation too but is...

This is a hostel that has some more upscale rooms too. I stayed in a very comfortable room with a double bed and a view over the Sea of Marmara. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was served up on the roof terrace overlooking the sea. All in all, a good budget choice and preferable to many...

Location is key for this hostel. Right where you want to be if you're a short-term stay tourist wanting to see all the attractions. Cabs have a hard to find it, so make sure you have their phone numbers handy. It's about 40 Turkish Lira to get from Airport. About 3 of 4 people working there speak English fluently. Everyone...

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighbourhood Profile
Sultanahmet
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 epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The time for Istanbul is now, this is the city where you will come for one week and want to stay for one month. And there is no better place to stay than Topdeck Hostel! We are a small hostel, in the perfect location. With the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Topkapi Palace just seconds walk away from our hostel. We are also located close to great restaurants and bars, but far away enough so the noise doesn't reach us. From our rooftop terrace (plus some rooms) you can enjoy the beautiful view of the Marmara Sea & Asian shores! We have 24 hour reception and friendly fluent English speaking staff to answer all your questions and we can also show you around our beautiful city :) We hope you will be our guest. ... more   less

“Though our room was next to the entrance, the noise wasn't that bad. If you're really sensitive, you might want to opt out on this one.”

“Topdeck has two building side by side, I would advise to stay in the building next to the reception as that is quieter since the main building houses the reception and the rooftop on which breakfast is served and is used as the general hang out area.”
