We stayed in the private ensuite at this place. Everything was clean and so nice! This place is literally 3min to blue mosque and the farthest is grand bazaar which is 14min- so location is exceptional. Tarek was a great and warm host, so was the bar tender and another person at front desk whose names I sadly don't remember....

My brother and I, 30s, decided to stay here for one night because we wanted somewhere social yet a private room. It nailed it. The private room is certainly decent. Warm (January...), well heated, very spacious, with a good bathroom as well. It's short on amenities (hostel after all), but it's good enough for guys sharing a room. Even a...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Cheers hostel. The staff were friendly and very helpful, gave us a lot of tips of places to check out, and made us feel very welcome. Location of the hostel was excellent - short walk from Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi Palace. The hostel bar has a beautiful view of Hagia Sophia, make sure...

Amazing hostel - great atmosphere, great owners, fantastic city. You will not be disappointed. I arrived during a time when a lot of people will be asking is Turkey safe. The hostel owners could not have made us feel more welcome and safe. It was like they opened their home to us. The hostel is perfectly located for all of...

I stayed in this hostel during christmas and it was definitely one of the best experiences I've ever had in Istanbul. The hostes is very hospitable and he also shares some do's and donts in Istanbul . It's very close to Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque and Topkapi palace. Since it's also close to tram station, you could go to anywhere...

Cheers Hostel is a wonderful place with wonderful people - guests, staff and owners. As a solo traveler I was hoping to bump into some fellow explorers and partygoers - and I could not have found a better spot. Everyone here is open-minded, happy to chat and share experiences, and explore the city including the nightlife together. Needless to say,...

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.
