Our last visit was on Feb 2016, we were 3 travellers and we stayed at the separate appartment. It's across the street from the main hostel, it has an amazing location: located...

Great location. Excellent employees. Friendly place. The hostel provides the rooms really cheap compare with the other hostels. It is such. A great deal even the hostel locates in centre. I really reccomend the Green House Hostel according the location. Just 5 minutes distance to Taksim Square. It is also so close to Istanbul Congressium Centre.

the location is good, only 7-8 minutes walk from the bus and tram station at taksim square..Talat and Ana are very hospitable and helpful, and their genuine efforts make up for any imperfections of the facility...the human factor is the biggest asset that differentiates green house hostel from any other hostel where I've been..

My stay here at Green House was beyond amazing. I got two great night sleeps and woke up super fresh. The hosts were super friendly, and helpful. The place is a few minutes walk from the Taksim Square, with many shops around it.

The hostel is very well located, not far from Taksim square and yet in a small and quiet street where you are not bothered by the (VERY) loud clubs. It is also very clean and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. I will probably stay there again next time.

Staying in Sisli

Neighbourhood Profile
Sisli
For much of Istanbul’s history, Sisli and the area just north of Taksim Square were open countryside used mostly as hunting grounds. These days, Sisli and its chic streets are considered the very heart of contemporary Istanbuli life, where an epicenter of fashion and a thriving business district meet to create an expressly “downtown” feel. Though largely a residential neighborhood, luxury hotels, fine dining restaurants, and upscale shops abound with many of them situated inside or nearby Cevahir Istanbul, the biggest shopping mall in Europe and second biggest urban shopping mall in the world. Shopaholics and fashionistas travel from near and far to browse the area's mix of major global brand items and creations by popular Turkish designers.
