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.

Rapunzel gives you everything what you expect from a hostel..Bathrooms were kept clean the beds were very comfortablea.. very rich breakfast welcomes you in the morning..and all the atractions are very nearby. and it was very close to a major metro station! Highly recommend it!
Despite being a small hostel, it's very cozy and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Perfect location for both walking around during daytime and going out at night. Recommended
This hostel was in a great location, it was very comfortable and clean and the other people staying were wonderful. There isn't much of a kitchen, but the complimentary breakfast is wonderful and I loved the rooftop terrace. Thank you for the stay!
