Istanbul Hostel Reviews
Nice staff, great fellow guests; rooms not too clean May 19, 2008
There are zillions of hostels in the Sultanahmad quarter, so first thing you should do is check out some directory like hostelsweb.com for availability and room rates.
Sinbad hostel was okay for us (two male, frowzy highschool grads), they have a very friendly staff that is there for you around the clock. You get breakfast, which consists of tea, white bread, and tiny amounts of cheap, tasteless jam and cream cheese.
We had the small double room for 32 Euro a day (16 per person), which is okay; they also have larger dorms and single rooms. Our bathroom was ... well, always a medium flood disaster (leaking pipes, no shower curtains). There also was a lair of ants under my friends bed, but we killed them with liters of insecticides, so it's safe for you to come, haha.
Don't forget that when in Istanbul, you will hardly spend time at your housing (otherwise I dare call you an idiot), and also keep in mind that it's a hostel, not a five-star luxury hotel. You always find great, fun, openminded people in the lobby (mostly from North America, Spain or Germany). They also have a computer, so you can check your emails and update your travbuddy blog in realtime (free of charge, of course).
We had a great time!
