A nice hostel within a walking distance from many of Istanbul's attractions. Recommended especially for short stays as you will be located among most of the things you would want to see in the city. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable enough, Wi-Fi is free and there is also a computer room. The accompanying bar and its staff, who...

You enter the hostel through the great little downstairs bar and past reception (seems to be open 24/7?) The rooms are nice, plenty of plugs and wifi is fantastic throughout the hostel. I thought the location was great (within walking distance of a lot of the 'major' sights) and the staff were really nice. The only even vague problem I...

Nice rooms with a good bar to relax or party in. Staff are friendly, food is good in a welcoming atmosphere. Tv's to watch your favorite team play & the staff go out of their way to get your game of choice on. Inside area to dance late into the night or outside area, heated in winter to relax.

Have been coming here winter and summer for around 6 years - have always received the best service, great food & drink and the friendliest of company. Very accommodating regarding sports viewing - they were happy to start screening rugby matches at a time when I was the only rugby fan in the city - now they can tell me...

I stayed here for 2 nights from 20-22 Oct 2014. I took a triple room but they did not check my confirmed booking. They gave out my triple room and gave me a 6-bed dorm for 3 of us. It was not so great sleeping under another bed. The room has great view from the sea but it has its...

I stayed at the Sultan Hostel for a few nights in October of 2014. It was a very clean hostel which I appreciated. However, it seemed more like a bar that also had a hostel. The music and patrons in the bar were very loud late into the night. The hostel lacked a lounge for the hostel guests that was...

I love Istanbul and have been there for already 3 times. I adore strolling through Istanbul's streets, buying all sorts of nice things, my favorite deals are drinking tea, eating turkish sweets in small and cozy cafes, smoking nargile and just chilling out not paying attention to a quite active pace of Istanbul life. All of them are the main...

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.
