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.

The location of the hostel is great! From here it's easy to visit all the sights, museums, exhibitions. Shops, bars and restaurants are in walking distance. The staff at Rapunzel hostel is very friendly! There's always someone around, happy to answer all your questions. No matter if you travel alone or as a group; you will feel very welcome. An extra bonus is the roof terrace. Amazing view and a wonderful place to hangout. It was a great experience. I absolutely recommend it!
Best hostel I\'ve ever stayed at.
Very friendly & helpful staff and great breakfast in a beautiful and cozy building. Location is just superb, walking distance to all the main spots since it\'s right between Taksim and Sultanahmet. I had a little accident at Süleymaniye Mosque (watch out for slippery marble stairs!) and was fondly treated by the staff while recovering. Istanbul if a life-changing experienced only enhanced by these wonderful people. Also made some good friends there!
