Rapunzel Hostel is centrally located in the hip and happening area of Istanbul, “Galata” (in Beyoglu district) offering a budget hostel next to the famous Galata Tower. 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. The old city “Sultanahmet”, which holds all the principal monuments of Istanbul, is also 5 min away by tram. The nearest metro station is 2 min, tram and bus stops are 3 min walking distance away from our beloved hostel. It is a place at the heart of the city, offering you a cosy and comfortable base from which to explore the beauty of Istanbul.
Our building was designed at 1872 by the architect Salvatore Flori, as a family building that had been lived in Galata area for over five decades. The building is recently refurbished by being faithful to its authenticity.

More than a hostel; the reason why to choose to stay in a hostel instead of picking any of the several new accommodation options available nowadays.
Clean, cool, good music, amazing breakfast, authentic Turkish hospitality. Very nice terrace with an incredible view to the unbelievable Istanbul. Only for exciting travelers ;-)
I highly recommend it
The staff Are super friendly and helpful. They're fun to hang with and also down to listen to your story and share theirs. The whole place feels very clean, comfy, and cozy. Location is great. And all the travelers I've met here are awesome! No strange or weird people. I feel comfortable having great/deep conversations with them as well as going out to the city to explore together.
Stayed for 3 nights
The hostel lies really central right at the bottom of the galata tower. The stuff is really friend and knows most of the insider tips of Istanbul. Room are really clean and beds are comfy. The breakfast is really good and included in the room price. They organize airport transfers and make sure you get the best for your money. Everything is closed by and you can walk into town.
