Istiklal Street, with its nightlife, shopping and famous cosmopolitan atmosphere is only 5 min away; as is Tünel Square, which is officially the trendiest place in Istanbul right now, with a mixture of cool cafés and bars.

“Excellent location, design & size”
Rapunzel was the perfect place to stay in Istanbul for the backpacker or budget traveller looking for a good base to explore trendy neighbourhoods and discover local charms. Galata is an awesome area with excellent cafes, bars, boutiques, art galleries and a lively vibe.
The hostel was clean, had a cool design and a safe, relaxed feel to it. Nice rooftop terrance to bring your own drinks to and meet other travellers. Noise travelled a fair bit through the hostel, particularly on the lower levels with noise coming in from the door and people coming home late, and it would have been nice if it had more to offer in terms of helping you discover the area - walking tours, or if the staff offered advice on where to go when you arrive. But it was great - good breakfast, clean, good beds, lockers, etc, all the hostel must haves. Would stay here again.
I had a wonderful stay, it really made my Istanbul experience fantastic. Everyone guests and staff included was extremely friendly, it has a very homey vibe. It was very easy to make friends with the other guests and as a result I was rarely alone in Istanbul. The location was perfect and the beds were also very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. Thanks again!
