What’s a hostel?” I hear you ask. Well, it’s an affordable form of accommodation offering cheap hospitality, food and a sociable atmosphere, in dormitory style rooms. Visitors can rent a bunk bed with a shared bathroom, lounge and kitchen. And the rooms can be mixed, single-sex or private rooms. Here are the best hostels you can find in Istanbul.
