Me and my Australian friend stayed in this hostel last year in July. Big mistake. We were fooled by the charm of the great location. It was like a torture to try to sleep. No fan! The room was really small that we could barely fit in and there were 6 staying in that small room. We opened the window...

The point of this place is to be right in the center of the city with a very friendly staff. Besides that rooms are really smalls, bathrooms are clean but would need a refresher.

Very dirty, very rude staff. we booked via internet and when we got there they gave as a room 9sq.m WITH NO WIDOWS. it was raining so the ceiling was POURING water onto the matresses. One bathroom for at least 20 people. DO NOT VISIT. you can find much much better almost same price.

This is a crappy Hostel. Tiny conjusted rooms, hard mattresses with metal springs still got back pain. The receptionist is rude like hell. No breakfast, dirty rooms & only 2 tiny dirty bath rooms in whole building.

Stambul is quite expensive city, so prices of accomodation are high too... Chillout hostel is located in very good place, near to Galata bridge. It's good choice for students. Rooms are colourful, bathroom is common for whole floor. Staff is really sociable, open for tourist and helpful.

This place is to be avoided! It is wildly overpriced for what it offers. I've traveled to many places around the world, and I'm not particularly bothered by some poor standards...however, this place is only interested in your money and not the well-being of its customers. I've been to Turkey (& Istanbul) 3 times and have stayed all over the...

Filthy, noisy, mouse-infested, wildly over-priced. One of the worst places I've ever stayed. I've travelled to over 80 countries and have stayed everywhere from 5 star hotels to youth hostels. And this is truly the worst place I've ever stayed in terms of cleanliness, value for money and quality of sleep. It's wildly over-priced. It's filthy (I saw three mice...

Lots of negative reviews of this place. Why so sour? For the record, I'm middle-aged and chose this place because I had an early flight out of Istanbul the next morning and didn't want to spend a huge amount of money for a few hours of sleep. Place is cleaner than many say, including bathroom, and I was able to...

Great location, I would definitely recommend staying in Beyoglu as opposed to Sultanhamet, it is much less touristy. But this hostel leaves a lot to be desired. There are three Chillouts and we stayed at CO LYA, they are all the same owners so I assume they are probably all the same. We were pretty much the only people in...

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
