Big Apple Hostel Istanbul
Lonely Planet review
Though a newcomer to the competitive Cankurtaran hostel scene, we reckon this well-run place is likely to be a stayer. Dorms on the ground floor are a bit dingy, but those above are light, freshly painted and clean. There's a foyer with large-screen satellite TV and a rooftop bar with beanbags, lounges and good views where you can enjoy a nargileh and a cheap beer.
