Chillout Hostel Cafe
Lonely Planet review
Beyoğlu is the hub of modern Istanbul and this hip hostel is the place to base yourself if you're here to sample Istanbul's thriving nightlife. It's in a good backstreet spot, a short stagger from the bars but far enough away to escape the noise for when you do want to sleep.
Chillout's colourful cafe is the only hangout spot for the hostel, but it's atmospheric and very welcoming. There's a great music selection (mostly electronic dance), Keith-Haring-inspired Chillout cartoons on the wall, nocturnal lifestylers slouched in the corner recovering from the night before, and a sleek black cat. It's also a great place to pick up the pace in the evenings as one of the cheapest places for grog around. The hostel has a variety of rooms and doubles with and without en suites. The squishy dorms will suffice if you don't plan on spending too much time in them. Ditto the communal bathrooms: they're so small you can shower, go to the loo and preen yourself all at the same time! This is the type of place where people come for a few days and end up staying for weeks.

We are the first and still the CHEAPEST hostel at Beyoglu which is at the heart of Turkey- Istanbul. Beyoglu is not a really touristy area to visit mosques, or explore carpets like Sultanahmet, it is for night seekers place...Beyoglu=nightlife=beers=girls=boys :))))) Beyoglu is the heart attack of Istanbul...You can find all enjoyments in here... Every kind of music, styles and bars.. It is a cosmopolitian place - you can find diffrent kind of people at Istiklal like Chillout... Chillout has a different mood that you must try it... Full of joy in here, everywhere is full of color that resembles its character... Lots of Backpackers come and go.. So many stories in here... If the walls could speak, it could tell too many things... Every time, we are having a chilly party in here... We love having fun and love to taste the pleasure of life :)Chillout is a spontaneous place - you never know what could happen :)We are the cheapest hostel in Taksim- Beyoglu whereas our 5 stars are on the sky :) All the customers are our friends so hospitality is very important for us...
