My experience here was amazing, the staff is very nice, Cem the manager is like a big father to all volunteers. They have a cuisine Chef that cooks very well and will provide you delicious turkish food for free at the breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The work is not too hard, you will have a lot of time to discover Istambul.
Thank you Sanat Hostel Taksim

It was really useful for me :) Sanat hostal is a huge hostel, the biggest one! Unfortunately because of Covid is not opened the karaoke bar or all the funny places inside , but doesn’t matter , I met so great people and I spent a very good time there. For me it was like my second home. I had one day off a week but three meals a day. Cem support me when I found a job and also helped me with some documents . He is a good man and I’m so grateful with him and Sanat hostel. Work is not difficult, and the others volunteers were so kind people, also The hostel has a perfect location ,so Safe place
