    using the computer for free..people working at the reception are kind

    it was my fault actually that i did not notice it was a hoStel not a hotel.i was very surprised because the room was not as i expect.a/c was not cooling. the curtains let the light in so we could not sleep after the surise.the breakfast buffet was poor and not clean "there was a fly on tomato". glasses and cups were not clean too. no cold water. i do not recommend it to people who look for relaxing

    Very good

    Right at the heart of of Sultanahmet (old city) 3mins walk from AyaSofia and the blue mosque. Clean rooms and friendly personel. The breakfast is included and for the price you pay it is quite ok. The rooms are clean and they change towels every second day. Overall a good hostel.

    The stuff was always extremely helpful and very polite although their english was not very good. The breakfast is humble but fair since it is included in the price. Unfortunately it is served rather late (at 8:30) and if you want to go around early to avoid the heat or to follow an early conference in Taksim, then it is too late. It is a clean place!

    Too late breakfast, as we needed to be early in taksim every day.Too early check out at 10:30. 11:30 would be fairer.

    Superb

    You could not get a better location in Istanbul as it is within 5 minutes walk of the main sights. I also liked the check-in staff, they are very helpful and friendly.

    The breakfast is very poor - no juice, fruit or cold meats. Just more and more bread.

    Good

    We woke up at 7:00 am every day because it makes a lot of noise when people open their door. So if you want to wake early day it is the place for you, but not for us. One day we came back to our room and it was open, the lady who cleaned it, didn't locked it.. The sheet on the matras was to small, one of us was lying on the matras half the night.

    Everything is excellent in this hotel - location, staff, cleanliness and breakfast for such low price. I've travelled a lot and can compare with other hostels, so it was the best place in Turkey that I have used to live in. Thanks to Booked.net for making it possible to find such nice hostel :-)) Cok tesekkurler to Antique hostel for its work :-)))

    Location

    The entire staff--all male, are in the wrong business! They are too busy trying to be cool club owners--for the unfinished pub, so-called common area, on 3rd floor. The rest (hostel) is just in their way of having a club. Only one of 3 computers worked in that 3rd floor common area, but took a few days, ten people complaining, for them to start to fix it. Of course, Wifi did not work in that common area; met with a curt, "why didn't it work, it is your problem!" Lower bunk bed had about 50cm clearance; can't even sit on your bed--since there is no chair, nor other furniture in room. "Specialty" locker that only their own (must buy it) lock works. You are not allowed to eat nor drink anything in that "cool" common area; we had to gather outside the hostel, socialize on the steps of opposite shops like homeless tourists. a male staff also came sleeping in one of our beds, late night, one time. It is as though we were all intruding on their "building phase" of a cool club--the common area. Several of us moved on to better hostels across the bridge-- tram is so easy, and super frequent. Plus Taksim square side is where the night life is anyway, not in this conservative Sultanahmet, where these club-owners-wannabe staff are day dreaming, and gets annoyed helping us with basic needs.

    Very good

    Staff was extremely friendly, helpful and respectful. Minutes away from Sultan Ahmet Park (Blue Mosque and Aya Sofya). Surprisingly sufficient number of electrical outlets (very rare to find!). Use of internet on roof upstairs (2 of 3 computers were working and usually had no problem getting on). Complimentary tea all day at the bar.

    Top bunks on beds very difficult to climb into -- the first step was way too high and I felt very unsafe climbing up -- not like any bunk bed I'd ever been in. Construction work on hotel made it noisy and very dusty. No lift, so be prepared to walk up and down lots of stairs.
