          Hi Guys, was going through some sites that said that you have something like a pub crawl happening every week. We are two couples looking to be in Istanbul in the month of may. Unfortunately, we are only there from Monday to Thursday evening, and thus, should you have anything for a wednesday night, or could suggest, would really love to be a part of it. Cheers.

          Your hostel/hotel was recommended to my husband and I. I was just wondering though if you have any private rooms with 2 double beds. We are so excited about our trip to Istanbul. Thank you so much!
