I was in Istanbul for a couple of days and was lucky enough to come accross the Orient hostel. Sadi who was at reception at the time was of enormous help to me as my phone was locked and i had no way of contacting home. He couldnt do enough and i am very gratefull. A true gent! The Orient has a great friendly athmosphere and i will stay there on my return to Istanbul!

Dear team of the Orient Hostel, in April 2015 we stayed some days in your location with the whole family. We enjoyed the room, the view during breakfast and dinner and espacially the good guidance at your reception . Many thanks and a good time! Family Keiser

He estado en abril 2015 en orient y la estancia ha sido fenomenal. Mi habitación era la de 30 camas, y el ambiente fue genial. Todo el mundo respetó el horario de dormir. La habitación estaba limpia, los baños también. El personal de recepción amable. Yücel estuvo muy servicial en todo momento, ayudándonos siempre que lo necesitamos. La ubicación del hostel es inmejorable, muy cerca de santa sofia y la mezquita azul. El desayuno está bien y se puede tomar en una terraza con unas vistas impresionantes. En general todo muy bien.

You will not find a better spot in Istanbul if you want a cold beer to meet other travellers and generally have a great time and be central to all attraction highly recommend it.

This was my second stay at Orient and I had such a blast that I will have to go a third time very soon! All the staff were awesome and so friendly, especially my new friends Burak, Harun, Hassan, Bilo (aka Pillow), and Sadi. I have not had a hostel experience as good as at Orient. They may not have all the bells and whistles like the big chains, but they have more character and atmosphere for sure. This hostel is best enjoyed by hanging out in the cafe or bar and having fun with the staff and new friends you are sure to make.

Hi Sadi and all the other staff Just a quick hello to tell you how much I enjoyed staying at your hostel . I used hostels in 52 countries so far and your\'s is very special. Your breakfast is really nice,especially with the view on the Bosphorus Sea. I ate a few meals at your restaurant which were delicious. Thanks to all the staff for being so nice.

Thanks for the great week we had at your hostel! We loved having breakfast with view on the Bosporus in the mornings and had great fun having a few drinks with you at the rooftop or downstairs when we came back home from our day trips. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. We\\\'re so happy that we stumbled upon this hostel and chose to stay here! The location of the hostel is perfect and clearly in the heart of the nicest of Istanbul\\\'s quarters. Thanks for everything! Valerie, Sarina and Anika.

My experience at the Orient Hostel was a unique one. It was my first time travelling to Istanbul and my first time staying in a hostel. This hostel proved not only to be a truly cost effective means of accommodation but it was also very clean and central to all attractions. The staff there were extremely helpful and very accommodating. I highly recommend it. The week I stayed there they had new beds and lockers installed in all the rooms so for me I totally luck out. Enjoy.

Incredibly close to Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, fairly close to the Grand Bazaar. The staff if friendly and helpful, wifi is a huge plus. Breakfast is good, beds are comfortable, showers are hot. It's a very nice place to stay, and I had a lovely time.

My to friends and me stayed 6 nights at Orient Hostel. The first night was a bit hot and short. The rooms like the beds are clean and suitable for sleeping. The outlook from the amazing rooftop is stunning and you can get to all the top highlights in the old city (like AyaSophia, Blue Mosque) in a few minutes. The location is amazing ! I´ve enjoyed the time in Orient Hostel, especially the staff ;)

Just got back from a college trip with my students. The hostel is in a perfect location especially as on a street with great restaurants etc and also for main sights such as blue mosque, grand Bazaar, Topkapi etc and the hostel has great facilities (eating and entertainment area), rooms clean and the staff are really helpful. Thanks for your hospitality.
