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.

J'ai passé un exellent séjour à Rapunzel! L'emplacement est parfait, la terrasse très sympathique, la réceptionniste italienne très aimable et toujours prête à nous aider. L'auberge est petite et cosy et est propice aux rencontres entre les différentes nationalités. Le petit déjeuner et très correct et le thé et le café sont à volonté toute la journée! Goulé goulé et à un de ces jours Rapunzel!
The Rapunzel Team is very kind. They always helped me with addresses and with nice tips of the city. I liked all the hostel, very cozy, well located, delicious breakfast (it begins a little tale and i missed the boiled eggs). The only thing that I suggest: I wondered to had a stove to cook something at night.
Room Tip: For girls, the multiple female room it's very nice, with private bathroom.
Everything was perfect
Amazing breakfast in the morning, great beds and lockers in the dorm, biggest shower and the most clean bathrooms. Would love to recommend anyone. Ask the staff about the ongoing events, they are full of insider tips.
