    Comfortable & convenient base for Sultanahmet

    Located in between Galata Bridge and Hagia Sophia, Second Home is well-positioned as a convenient base to explore the historic Istanbul! The hostel itself is also a comfortable place to rest - my single bedroom was as comfortable as my own bedroom (and thus matched well with the Second Home name). I unfortunately stayed here for only a night as a stopover, but I will definitely choose to stay here again on my return to Istanbul.

    Will stay here again!

    This isn’t the fanciest place to stay in the area, but it’s definitely great value for money. It was clean and the beds were comfy - we shared a bathroom with the other rooms on our floor and it was cleaned throughout her day. The service is 10/10 and the team at Second Home go above and beyond to make sure you feel welcome and that you get the most out of your visit to Istanbul. The hostel is really well located, 3 mins walk from the tram, and within walking distance of the park, loads of museums, the blue mosque and some lovely restaurants. When we go back to Istanbul we will definitely stay here again, and hopefully Mimi the kitten won’t have grown too much by then!

    Good

    I had a long stay and the staff were amazing. The location is perfect. Regarding the room, if you only need it for sleeping is perfect. Don't expect a huge room. Common spaces are great

    Wir hatten einen sehr angenehmen Aufenthalt. Besonders das freundliche Personal hat uns beeindruckt. Memo hat uns sehr geholfen und viele Telefonate geführt, damit wir ein Testzentrum finden konnten. Auch das Frühstück war sehr lecker und die Ausstattung der Küche gut.

    Çok misafirperver ve güleryüzlüydüler. Fakat hostelde su yoktu, yapılan bir çalışma dolayısıyla olduğu söylendi. Çift kişilik odada kaldık, temizdi fakat oda karanlık, penceresiz ve yatak rahatsızdı. Fakat terası, hizmeti ve konumu çok iyi.
