I Enjoyed My time in the hostel, The only negative thing is the terms that i applied for was two days off per week when i arrived Emre told me no it is gonna be one day off per week because i run a buisness and two days off are too much!! i already had another opportunity in another hostel in Istanbul offering two days off per week if i knew this will not be respected i would have chosen to go to the other hostel. It is better to edit the offer and write only one day off so people will know what to expect before coming.

My experience in a hostel was fantastic. It was incredible to meet lovely people from all around the world in my month stay. However, my encounter w/ the owner was terrible. There is a lot I can say but in summary: I didn´t have a specific bed, I applied for 5hrs a day but I was given night shift 12hrs overnight, & we had a stressed discussion cause he changed his mind about my departure date two times. This day, the owner was rude & told me to get out of the hostel. My hard work & good feedback from guests no longer mattered.Although I recommend Worldpackers, I would never recommend this host
