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. Before Rapunzel, the first floor of the building was used as a tea house. The building is recently refurbished by being faithful to its authenticity.

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.
Best dormitory I've ever seen!
Huge bunk beds, so comfy beds, very solid lockers. Definitely very good "value for money". Also everything in bathroom look like brand new.
I have got not a single complaint. Everything was great. The hostel is warm, the rooms are nice, the breakfast is nice, the location is perfect and the staff was more than great! :)
