Bereketzade Mah.Bereketzade Camii Sok.No 3 Galata


Our stone building, designed by an Italian architect Salvatore Fleri, is 143 years old. It has beautiful brick walls, wooden staircase and doors and a fantastic roof top terrace, which you can enjoy 24 hours, for either having your delicious, breakfast or an afternoon beer or for smoking. We have 7 spotless rooms with private bathroom, toilet and air conditioning. You don’t need to bring linens, microfiber duvets, hairdryers, because we provide them for free. We also offer free breakfast, tee, coffee and last but not least free Wi-Fi.

We are engineers, artists, architects and designers of Rapunzel, as a result the place is formed up by the idea of DIY (do-it-yourself). We try to renovate our hostel continuously, so that everything keep up in good shape. So don’t get surprised if things look like brand new.
