This is my go-to hostel when in Istanbul. It is located in the historic centre (Sultanahmet) a short walk from many of the city’s famous attractions, like the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace and the Hagia Sophia Museum. Upon arrival you might find the reception area to be a bit…shall I say, eccentric, but the room and bathroom are totally different, in a good way 🙂 If you’re on the ground floor, you might have a small outside area as well. And if you’re higher up, you could have a sea view, as the breakfast room on the top floor did so. On the flip side, the breakfast served is not much to write home about… Have in mind that I very often stay at 2-3 star hotels, and my only concerns are cleanliness, safety, location and cost. All in all I would say that Deniz Houses definitely fits the bill!
