Reviews for this host's other properties
Very nice and cosy room with a wonderful view!
Great service and very friendly staff!
We stayed for our one week holliday in this room. And we whould do it again.
The included breakfast in the hostel (3 min walk) gives you a good basement for the day. Ercan was realy friendly and the comunication (in english) was great.
Like the descriptions of other users are telling, the view is breathtaking. The room it self is realy charming and the rest of the flat has a simple standard in comparision to german standard. The stareway up to the fifth floor is realy special. It feels a bit like Havana 20 Years ago. After a couple of days it feels like home.
We visited Istanbul in the middle of October 2015. I can imagine that in summertime the room can be very hot.
A nice room with a wonderful view in a big apartment.
I recommend it. Thanks Ercan.
The location is perfect and the place is lovely.
Although we've had unpleasant moment with staff. We were promised early breakfast (we had early flight). When we came there was nothing that looked like breakfast... It would be easier if we they just didn't promise.
The view from the window is stunning enough that I can recommend this stay. Also the location is great and the hostel staff friendly and helpful. The room was clean and even though you shouldn't expect luxury, everything is in good enough shape. More equipment for the shared kitchen would be a good idea. The stairway doesn't look good as others have stated, but it's not a real problem. Although choice for breakfast is not abundant, it's tasty (served in the hostel, which is a short distance away).
Several different rooms from this apartment can be found on wimdu. I got the 15m² one instead of the 25m² I booked, which wasn't a problem for me (in fact I didn't even realize it when I was there, so didn't ask about the reason), but confirming beforehand might be a good idea if you need the space.
Make sure you remember the entry of the house if you plan to come back late, because after the shutters are in front of the closed shops, the street looks quite different.
On the pro-side: The apartment has an amazing view on the Bosporus. It is a pleasure to wake up and go to sleep to this sight. The wooden floors, high ceilings and brick walls are lovely. Martin and the World hostel staff are friendly hosts and always available for quesions. Breakfast in the hostel is alright and a good start into the day.
On the con-side: The staircase of the apartment is rather dodgy and makes you feel relieved when you can close the door behind you. The bathrooms, toilets and towles are just fine but rather suitable for young travelers who don't expect much. Since Istanbul is a noisy city and the walls are paper thin - bring earplugs if you want a good night's sleep.
All in all: Excellent for a short trip to Istanbul on a budget.
The apartment has a very good location and the room was clean. The breakfast at the hostel was good. The other residents were a bit noisy, but bearable. From the house from the outside and the stairwell must not be deterred you look. For young people really recommended.
Die Wohnung hat eine sehr gute Lage und das Zimmer war sauber. Auch das Frühstück im Hostel war gut. Die anderen Bewohner waren manchmal etwas laut, aber ertragbar. Vom Haus von außen und dem Treppenhaus darf man sich nicht abschrecken lassen. Für junge Leute wirklich zu empfehlen.
Instead of a review I'd rather write a few tips, comments or tips that have been not yet or hardly mentioned. Since I have given 5 out of 5 points, it is clear what I think of this room (a dream), and thought of Martin and his colleagues in the hostel (very helpful and friendly).
This room is part of an apartment in the 7 rooms are rented. This can easily happen that you will be awakened by another at 6 clock, because the light in the back of the corridor automatically turns on and passes through the frosted glass of Zimmtür. Who has a light sleeper, may require ear plugs and a lack of sleep.
It was our first time in Turkey and we had to get used to it, that not all used toilet paper to be thrown into the toilet, but in a bucket, which stands next to it. So also in this apartment. It is advisable to bring own paper as an emergency reserve to.
The kitchen has a single pot and only one pan. The electric hob is tiny and outdated. The room is too small to eat there, and uncomfortable. There is (but) a large refrigerator. Most will go eat anyway. I can recommend a Falaffel -lunch who goes to the steep road about 200 high, in a narrow street on the right is.
Breakfast unfortunately only at 9 clock in the hostel (Turkish breakfast). The later, the more full. There are not so many places. Very international, young audience. In addition, a tiny cafe with coffee and cake (delicious).
A supermarket is located on the same street, after about 50Metern left. Good for basic equipment.
You can walk in 15 minutes from the apartment to the Museum of Modern Art (Istanbul Modern). Fantastic location with a café and exciting objects. To get to 10, the groups are about 12 clock. The ticket is valid for the whole day.
I could write more, but that is beyond the scope. But a very important detail I have to get rid of even mark your day, where the entrance is, because at night when all the shops are closed, the front door is closed, and you're running several times to get past it. With feeling also opens this lock.
PS. This room is great, but the room next door, which consists of two rooms, amazing! Have Fun!
Anstelle einer Bewertung schreibe ich lieber ein paar Tipps, Kommentare oder Hinweise auf, die noch nicht oder kaum genannt worden sind. Da ich 5 von 5 Punkte gegeben habe, ist klar,was ich von diesem Zimmer (ein Traum) und von Martin und seinen Kollegen im hostel halte (sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich).
Dieses Zimmer ist Teil einer Wohnung, in der 7 Zimmer vermietet werden. Dadurch kann es schon mal vorkommen, dass man von anderen um 6 Uhr geweckt wird, weil das Licht im hinteren Teil des Flures automatisch angeht und durch das Milchglas der Zimmtür fällt. Wer einen leichten Schlaf hat, braucht eventuell ohrenstöpsel und eine Schlafmangel.
Es war unser erster Aufenthalt in der Türkei und wir mussten uns daran gewöhnen, dass nicht überall benutztes Toilettenpapier in die Toilette geworfen werden soll, sondern in einem Eimer, der daneben steht. So auch in dieser Wohnung. Es ist ratsam, eigenes Papier als Notreserve sich mitzubringen.
Die Küche hat keinen einzigen Topf und nur eine Pfanne. Das elektro-kochfeld ist winzig und veraltet. Der Raum ist zu klein, um dort zu essen, und zu ungemütlich. Es gibt (aber) einen großen Kühlschrank. Die meisten werden sowieso unterwegs essen. Ich kann einen falaffel -Imbiss empfehlen, der, geht man die steile Straße etwa 200 hoch, in einem Gässchen auf der rechten Seite liegt.
Frühstück leider erst gegen 9 Uhr im hostel (türkisches Frühstück). Je später, desto voller. Es gibt nicht so viele Plätze. Sehr internationales, junges Publikum. Daneben ein winziges Café mit Kaffee und Kuchen (lecker).
Ein Supermarkt liegt in der gleichen Straße, schon nach etwa 50Metern links. Gut für die Grundausstattung.
Man kann von der Wohnung zum Museum für moderne Kunst (istanbul modern) in 15 Minuten laufen. Fantastische Lage mit Café und spannende Objekte. Am besten um 10 kommen, die Gruppen kommen gegen 12 uhr. Die Eintrittskarte ist für den ganzen Tag gültig.
Ich könnte noch mehr schreiben, aber das sprengt den Rahmen. Aber ein sehr wichtiges Detail muss ich noch loswerden: merke dir am Tag, wo der Hauseingang ist, denn nachts, wenn am alle Läden geschlossen sind, ist auch auch die Haustür verschlossen, und man rennt mehrmals dran vorbei. Mit Gefühl öffnet sich auch dieses Schloss.
PS. Dieses Zimmer ist toll, aber das Nachbarzimmer, das aus zwei Zimmern besteht, der Hammer! Viel Spaß!
Clearly recommendable. Very nice people. Very friendly welcome. Always helpful. We had a proper and comfortable, large room for the family ( couple + little boy ), and with a fantastic view over the Bosporus. Was like cinema. We will come again. Thanks and very best regards, Ute, Felix and Jörg
