Reviews of Galata West Hostel
I spent wonderful evenings in the as well wonderful terrace of this hostel. An essential but very nice hostel, with a perfect position, especially for the nightlife.
Hard to find !
I had a nice staying. The hostel is cheap, at walking distance from the Galata tower, with public transport in the nearby. Nice and clean shared rooms with air conditioning and wonderful terrace for the evening time. Breakfast is poor but there is a fridge and the kitchen and a lot of market in the nearby. They ask for cash paying.
Got a double room with almost no window, it was always very dark. Very nice terrace and friendly staff. I liked the fact that the kitchen is basically run by the hostel's guest.
Unfortunately there was a mixup with our reservation so we didn't actually stay at this hostel. However the owner was devastated and couldn't stop apologising. He found a new hostel for us and drove us there. The hostel (reception area) was spotless, the staff very friendly and helpful and it is ideally situated. I would certainly consider staying there next time I visit Istanbul.
it is a really nice place to stay and has great position in the city...it is close to everything the staff people of the hostel are nice and warm and polite also i will recommend this hostel to anyone that wants nice place for sleeping for really less money Greetings from Macedonia, T
This was my first hostel in decades so I had no opinions. To me, for what one pays, this is fine. There were no issues and everything was good. Sam behind the counter was a great lad but was only there for a short period. Very hard to find....but stick with it.
good staff in a good place. ;)
