Stayed 3 nights with my partner at Chillout and then another 1 night on way back after 15 day trip in Turkey. The location is the major advantage of this place. Its just 1 minute walk from Istikal Street and 5 mins from Taksim square. We roamed Istanbul till late evening and could shop / party till late night at...

Pros: Great location. Common area is good for meeting people. Luggage storage (unsecured, though). Staff tried to be helpful, even if they actually were not. Cons: Security is a bit iffy because the dorm room doors are never locked. While you you do need a code to get inside the hostel itself, there are constantly locals sitting and smoking on...

I stayed one night in a single room, which was good value for the small amount of money I paid. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and even offered to me some local food in the morning. The rooms and showers were super clean and everything was good. The reason I rate it average and not more, as it...

My friend and I visited istanbul and stayed at cengo for the entire stay. Receptionists were great, friendly, and always willing to answer my 100 daily questions of how and where to get to places. The only thing is you never know who you will dorm with. Some are disrespectful of others sleeping habits, but that is to be expected....

It seemed expensive for what it was. Our room was noisy and there were lots of little things that were broken that could have been fixed with just a little super glue. It reminded me of a frat house that had seen one to many weekend raves. The size of the room was nice, but I wish I would have...

The Hostel has a friendly staff that helps you with every question you have about the city. The rooms and the facilities are clean. It is very close to Taksim and Istikal Street. The area is full of life, but therefore sometimes loud at night.

It was the second time that I crashed this hostel. The first time I sjust went there because friends of mine stayed there for some time. The people were even though I didn't stay there very welcoming. This time I took a room in there and it was really awesome. The room was good - not the best but everything...

Had a fantastic time earlier this year. Great staff and owner. City is nuts but lots of fun and very welcoming. We only stayed for 4 nights but loved it and would recommend it to anyone looking for something different.

Staying in Beyoglu

Neighbourhood Profile
Beyoglu
Istanbul’s most famous street, pedestrianized Istiklal Caddesi (Independence Avenue), throbs day and night and offers a fantastic array of architectural sights, shops, treats, and throngs upon teeming throngs of people. At the avenue’s northeastern end is expansive Taksim Square, thought by many to be the very heart of the city, with many of Turkey’s most renowned restaurants and some of Europe’s most happening nightlife in close proximity. In striking contrast, Beyoglu’s less trafficked areas – such as the affluent Cihangir and the antiques district of Cukurcuma – exude Old World charm and provide contemplative calm and splendid diversion via an assortment of cozy cafes, attractive boutiques, and quiet lanes.
