    Staff will make you feel at home”

    Excellent location as it's close to Taxim Square, Istiklal St, Turkish Airlines office, Turkiye Finans ATM and bank is just across the road for those who have Citibank cards (no extra fees for atm withdrawals), and most importantly 5 minutes to the Havabus stop which can take you to all the airports and runs every 15 mins to IST airport (50 mins away in light traffic). Make sure your Istanbulkart is charged with 18 lira as the bus service does not take cash. If you are travelling from or to Sabiha then have 18lira in cash with you. The staff are super welcoming and hospitable and that greeting was a lovely introduction to Istanbul. Some commented that there is no common area but the reception area where there are enough couches to accommodate for a cosy conversation at the end of the night will leave you happy & satisfied with the ending of your day. Nice location with genuine staff & the chance to meet people from all over the world makes for an amazing stay here. Will be back:)

    Location and Staff are Great”

    I picked this hostel because of this location as I had one night transit in Istanbul in between 2 different airport. This hostel has a very good location, very near crowded Taksim square and also Havatas bus parking. So, it's very convenient for me. The staff are extremely helpful to the max. They were doing renovation when I was there, so the place is less clean than usual I suppose. However all the facilities are available. This is not much of a social hostel as nobody in my dorm room speak to each other, but I'm less bothered as I was there only to take a rest.

    Simple room with good location”

    location, cleanliness, friendly staffs

    1) Location is good for backpackers, less than 10 minutes walk from the Havatas shuttle bus drop off point and Taksim Square. 2) The room is simple. We stayed in the 6 bed dorms and it worth every penny that we paid. I love the curtain at each bed that give privacy to us. 3) The staffs are helpful. The staircase in the hostel is steep and small, so the staffs helped us to carry the luggage to our dorm. Talat is very responsive to all the messages I sent to them in FB page.

    Lovely stay in this excellent hostel”

    Friendly staff, great location, excellent price

    I stayed at this hostel for 5 nights in the female dorm, travelling alone. I arrived very late at night, after the usual time the reception is closed but the staff were very kind and waited up for me, after giving me transport advice from the airport to Taksim Square. The dorm was very clean and far nicer than other dorms I've stayed in, more like a real hotel room with extra beds than some of the dorms where there are only beds. The breakfast was very nice in the morning too. As my flight on the last day wasn't until the evening, rather than being asked to check out and then drag my suitcase around all day, I was allowed to stay around til nearer my flight time, which was very useful for me, and very accommodating of the staff. I would definitely stay here again in future and recommend it to others. They also have a lovely cat, which was a bonus for me :)

    The location is perfect, I chose there because I had an early flight to the Sabiha airport, it’s five mins walk away to the Taksim Havasbus station and about 8 mins walk away to the Taksim Square. The owner is really nice and helpful and I wanna thank them for whatever the help they provided! Definitely wanna go back if go to turkey again!

    Super close to “Elmadag” bus stop ,from where you basically can get to every places that you want to go. 10minutes walk then you can reach the Taksim Square. There are many pigeons,watch your step,haha. just one tip here ,it’s too warm inside the room ,so you’d better drink as much water as you can and prepare some masks to keep your skin moisturized

    My stay at Taksim Green House Hostel”

    Taksim Green House Hostel is good place to stay when you need to roam around the Taksim Area. Location and pricing are good. Problem is with cleanliness since they kept cat in the Reception Room and there is no dedicated place for dining. I was eating my instant noodle cup with cat around. Another problem was, I left my praying necklace in the dorm during check out. Up to now, no good news as yet from the owner of Taksim Green House Hostel to the status of same. It is merely my carelessness but I still wish that praying necklace to come back since it is very special to me.
