Cheers Lighthouse Hostel

Cheers Lighthouse is a hostel with the friendliest atmosphere you’ll find in Istanbul! On our main building, we also run a restaurant called Cheers Soul Kitchen, where we serve the best of the traditional turkish dishes with a privileged view of the beautiful Marmara Sea.

All our volunteers will be treated as family by our staff to make sure their experience here will be unforgettable. A great time in the city of dreams, lots of laughter & turkish tea are guaranteed! Come and join us at the heritage district of Fatih, near the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and just about 15 minutes walk from Sultanahmet tram station.

The pleace is nice and the location is good (central). The work itself isn't heavy, and you are never alone (7 hrs.) I can't meet Tumay (in the work), but i did Murat, who was nice and gave me support, also thanks Maria who always smile me at breakfast!... thank you!
To be disadvantages are the room, always a mass and cleanness isn't a strength. Also you can't use laundry machine. Another thing is they don't respect your day off, considering the schedyle isn't good at all, because this is an opportunity to work but at the same time the main idea is to know the place (Istanbul) Good luck!!

Cheers Lighthouse is a good hostel to learn and observe how this kind of business works. The location and the hostel structure are the strong points. The main tourist’s places are near to the hostel and the tram station to go everywhere is 7 minutes walking so you can council the worldpackers experience and enjoy the Istanbul city. The staff, Max abi, Murat abi, Chef and Mama (miss all of you, guys) are helpful and probably you will have a lot of fun with them. Ana thanks for the friendship! I I am thankful for the opportunity to be part of the cheers team! Don’t forget the sarrada guys!
