This place is PERFECT. A spotlessly clean and charming guesthouse, centrally located and within walking distance of the key sights in beautiful Istanbul. The rooms are clean and modern, with all the essentials and plenty of sunlight. The breakfast is huge and tasty, consisting of eggs and hot and cold local mezzes, cheeses, veggies and fruits. And the views from the terrace are among the best in Istanbul, with mosques, sea, and a panorama of Istanbul on hand. What really sets this place apart is the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner, who helped me get a Covid test and print about a dozen documents With short notice. I normally don’t write reviews, but this place is outstanding!

Located near Sultanahmet, the Blue Mosque, and the tramline that allows you to range across this magnificent city, Agora is a lovely hostel with welcoming, helpful staff and cute dog. Complimentary breakfast at the rooftop dining area and balcony was a great way to start each day. Facilities were very good. Agora is an excellent choice for the price you will pay.
