We travelled turkey for 15 days, stayed in 6 different budget hostels and Istanbul Paris Hostel & Hotel is the only hostel I would not return to. I would recommend it to real budget travellers who are only planning on spending very minimal time in the room. The staff were quite helpful and the location was extremely central. The breakfast was quite nice with fresh fruits and fresh bread. The hostel room and bathroom itself was very unclean.
Directions: Look for a couple of signs along Peykhane Street pointing out Paris Hostel. Turn left after you have gone down a footpath of wide concrete steps.
One year ago I stayed for more than 2 months in this hostel, and it was OK. Is clean, cheap and has a good location.
Unique Quality: panoramic terrace in summer.
free internet acces ( but very slow)
In October 2002 I stayed in Paris Hostel and had excellent time there. The hostel is clean, the people working there are very nice and it is very cheap (only 6 US$ for a dorm bed) - the Paris Hostel accommodation is definitely worth much more than 6 US$. Breakfast is included in the price.
Directions: From Airport or Bus Station, take tram to Cemberlitas and then turn right.
