Great location, convenient for a quick stay

Posted Jun 7, 2013
Pros: Location
Cons: Bathroom
Location: Centre of tourist attractions, near Topkapi
Travelled with friend in June 2013. Great location, walking distance to tram which runs through all the main tourist attractions. Staff were friendly. Room was as per expected at a hostel, nothing more nothing less. Shared bathrooms were impractical as there were no hooks or locks on any of the doors. There was only one sink to share between the whole floor. Overall, it was comfortable enough for one night.

good enough, but staff issues

Posted Apr 14, 2012
Pros: great location and loved the terrace
Cons: issues with staff and muggy rooms
Location: great location near the bazaar, topkapi palace, and metro. easy walk to all attractions. go to taksim to go out!
Great place to stay -right in the middle of sultanahmet. The location was great! We stayed in a double private room and the room was good enough. We got exactly what we expected- small room with a bed and a window with a tiny bathroom down the hall. The rooms get pretty muggy (you can smell the old water pipes), but there is a fan and the windows open so it disappears after 5 minutes. The terrace was a nice touch - great place to hang out after a long day of site-seeing. The hostel staff even offered to order us dinner. Instead we went out to eat, took some wine to go from a convenience store, and drank and played backgammon on the terrace. They also have two computers with internet that you can use for FREE! The staff were always available to answer your questions; however the only complaint I have is that when we arrived we immediately went to the reception to reserve shuttle service to the airport to Ataturk. Can (the main receptionist) said ok great you are all set, just be down here 15 min before the departure time of the shuttle. On our departure date, we come downstairs and he denies ever calling the shuttle for us. He must have forgotten it was Easter weekend and did not even bother to think that the shuttle would get full. We ended up having to book it to the airport on the metro last minute. (which actually was really easy - only one switch for a total transportation cost of 4 lira a person). He was so rude upon our departure and did not even care about his mistake.

Gutes Hostel

Posted May 21, 2012
Pros: die gute Lage
Location: Das Hostel ist nur wenige Meter vom Topkapı-Palast entfernt. In der näheren Umgebung gibt es zahlreiche Restaurants und einen Supermarkt.
Das Second Home Hostel isr recht sauber, die Zimmer sind klein, aber ausreichend. Die Lage ist top, nur wenige Meter vom Topkapı-Palast entfernt. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett und hilfreich.
