Located in a quiet street where a good night's sleep is assured, the friendly Metropolis offers four- to six-bed dorms, including a female-only en suite option with six beds and sweeping Sea of Marmara views. There are also small private rooms on offer. The rooftop terrace has a bar and sea views to equal many pricier hotels, and there's a busy entertainment program.
Showers and toilets are clean but in limited supply. The steep stairs could be challenging for some travellers.
We offer high quality service at low prices for budget travellers. 'Run by travellers for travellers'. Since 2005
