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.

Best option for travelers on a low budget
Nice hostel with friendly and helpful staff. Big advantages are wifi, living room, individual lockers and location. Lively neighbourhood with nice coffee shops and restaurants. Hostel is only a bit noisy at night.
Great location and cosy
The whole team is nice and helpful. Rooms are clean and tidy.
Great location, close enough to Sultanahmet and the modern Istanbul. Nice view from the rooftop!!
You can arrange airport transfer with the hostel for 30 euros. Continental breakfast available.
Best hostel ever
This was by far my best stay in a hostel. The whole team was very friendly and helpful, they have individual lockers so i felt very safe all of the time. The localization is great, close enough to walk everywhere but hidden enough to be silent. I like that its not a party hostel, but is near a bunch os bars. If i go back to istanbul i will be there again for sure.
