    Place to stay in very centre


    Metropolis hostel is located a few blocks from famous Hagia Sophia church and Blue mosque, it is very convenient location. Anyway, it was not so good place as I expected after reading reviews and getting to know hostel nominations in the Internet.

    As first, room was in quite loud place, full of restaurants, the entrance to it was through restaurant kitchen doors. Another thing I didn’t like was lack of place and lamp light that was even not enough for reading. Hostel canteen was located in different building, on nice terrace on building roof (maybe the one thing I preferred).

    The price for a double room was about 50 euros (with breakfast).

    Directions: Not so far from Arasta market, Sultanahmet suburb.

    Great Centally-Located Hostel


    I stayed at Metropolis Hostel for six nights in July 2010. I initially booked four nights online in an all-girls dorm (with attached bathroom) and then later decided to extend my stay for two additional days, giving me the opportunity to try out a co-ed dorm on the lower level. I found both rooms to be very comfortable- the all-girls dorm was bright and airy, with blinds that blocked the morning sunlight. The co-ed dorm on the lower level was a pleasant, cool temperature. All rooms, bathrooms and common areas were meticulously clean.

    Breakfast is served on the open-air patio on the top of the hostel. It is a standard Turkish breakfast with bread, yogurt, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheese and hard-boiled eggs. Coffee and tea are provided as well. There were a few uncomfortably warm mornings and it's worth getting up early enough to get one of the tables in the shade while you eat. The hostel owners also operate a nearby restaurant, so you can have fresh Turkish foods delivered to the rooftop patio for lunch and dinner. They occasionally run rooftop barbecues (with live entertainment such as belly dancers) and pub crawls as well- sign up at the front desk.

    I found the location to be very convenient- it's an easy walk to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace, as well as the main tram line that will take you around the city. You can also walk to the Eminou ferry terminal and the Grand Bazaar. For people into the backpacking party scene, the hostel is a few blocks away from a popular strip of pubs and restaurants that appeal to tourists. Oh, and airport pick-up is available! The guys who picked me up at the airport at 1:00 am were very polite and friendly!

    Very nice hostel with good private rooms.


    I stayed at the metropolis hostel in march 2010 and decided to rent a private room cause i had some work to do while in Istanbul and needed a little privacy.
    I thought the place was very nice and my room was super clean and had a nice big bed and central heating.
    there was no bathroom though, but it was just outside my room in the corridor so this was no big deal.
    There was not much of a social cene though as the roof top terrace was not really used when i was there, but i guess this is more lively during summer months.

    Unique Quality: Nice room for a nice price in a good location.
