They change prices after arrival. Staff is extremely unfriendly. If you looking for a good atmosphere and at least some respect - this is not the place you need. It is also dark, pictures look way better.

I had a great 6-night stay at Levanten Hostel this week. The staff is so kind and helpful (it seems like they never sleep!) and give good suggestions for both touristy and off the beaten path activities around Istanbul. The combination of the location and the price make Levanten unbeatable.

I was really happy to stay there... Very central location made it easy to explore the city of Istambul. Our host Diren was lovely, always willing to make us a cup of tea or to answer million of our questions. The room was bright and tidy, the bathroom was kept clean, we got towels at the arrival and were allowed...

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.
