It not even look like a hostel... Exeption for the shared bath and shared toilet, but the room are amazing. A king bed just for me and they have a pub and restaurant just down the stairs. It is not expensive and the most important: location: in the middle of the Sultanahmed close to all the beauties in the city. For sure a good choice.

A nice cheap hostel with a cool vibe. Good enough that other travelers from different hostels/hotels hang out here. Location is prime to see historical Istanbul and easily get to Taksim for night life. Thank you Enes for your help and recommendations around town. It was a lot of fun going out to your recommended bars/clubs in Taksim! I would recommended staying at this hostel.

We’ve stayed at the Sultan a few times now as part of Busabout tours. Each time, we’ve paid the upgrade fee to have a double room with ensuite, with varying degrees of success. The first time, our room was tiny – we had to climb across the bed to reach the bathroom! The second time, we had bunk beds then more recently, we were in an enormous room with ensuite – this is the one you see on the website and was the best by far.

You have to remember that this is a hostel, not a hotel, so the carpet in the communal areas is a bit frayed, the walls a bit scuffed and so on, but it was clean and comfortable. Perfect if you’re on a budget or on a backpacking holiday, and the location is brilliant - a couple of minutes’ walk from the Hagia Sofia, Topkapi Palace and other major sights.

Breakfast (included) consists of bread, cheese, tomatoes, cereal and juice, coffee or apple tea. You then sit in the lounge area to eat, which opens onto the main street in Sultanahmet. It’s not a quiet street by any means, but we had no trouble sleeping. Perhaps request a room at the back though, you’ll have a much better chance at sleeping.

As far as hostels go, it’s fine.
