Taksim Green House Hostel Istanbul Reviews
Close to Taksim Square Apr 26, 2014
This hostel is situated in the close vicinity to Taksim Square where shuttle service to both airports leaves from, and a metro connection to the city centre is located. The hostel is set in the quiet street away from the noise of the main road.
Primary purpose for booking this place, was its convenient distance to the airport shuttle service. And the price was not as steep as for other accommodations.
I booked a bed in 4-bed female dorm for just one night. The dorm was specious enough and had big lockers to keep your luggage in. It was secured with a pin-code to open the dorm door which is very convenient as you do not need to carry a key with you.
The dorm had a pleasant, homely décor complemented with wooden beds with individual curtains, carpets and curtains. Everything was kept clean. There was also a small balcony overlooking the street.
The dorm comes with a private shower, but bathroom and toilet are shared (located in the corridor).
Free wi-fi worked fine during the stay.
The hostel offers breakfast which is included in room prices. Unlimited tea and coffee is available in the kitchen area. Breakfast is served in the kitchen and consists of bread, fresh veg, cold meat, cheese and various spreads. Standard food selection.
Total price paid - €17 which is reasonable for a hostel in a very big city.
I would recommend this place for its great location and helpful staff.
