The Top Affordable Alternative to Istanbul Hostels

The Top Affordable Alternative to Istanbul Hostels

Whether you’re backpacking through Europe or spending time as a student in Istanbul, it can be tempting to resort to staying in a hostel to save money. With hostels, you will discover that there is a lack of quality and amenities. Also, for the price you are paying for a hostel, you can easily find a nice hotel room on a budget in Istanbul. You just need to know where to look.

Things That Make You Go “Ew”

Just take a look at the Trip Advisor reviews for typical Istanbul hostels, and you may be horrified. You’ll read about dirty communal bathrooms, bugs, filthy linens, surly staff and being locked out of the accommodations except at night to sleep.
When you stay at the Hotel Büyük Keban, you’ll have access to your room whenever you want, whether to freshen up before going out again, to take naps, or to hang out for a relaxing evening. You’ll have a modern, newly renovated private bathroom and the security of knowing that your hotel has been awarded a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the highest standards of hospitality.
