    I spent a week in a Local hostel. And it was a great time! The atmosphere is very friendly. There is a regular cleaning and change of bed linen. You will always be treated to tea or coffee. And the people who work there always come forward and are ready to help on any issue. I was very pleased! 10/10

    It's one of the best hostels I've been in my life. As simple as that. The location is unmatchable (10 min walk from all the historical landmarks), the price is perfect, the hostel itself is nice and incredibly cozy, 10/10 overall. However, the best feature is the staff. Emre and Lina (and Emre's family) are so nice and attentive to anything you need, and you can spend hours with them just talking about anything (they have perfect english). The Local definitely improves your visit to Istanbul.

    Es un lugar maravilloso! No es perfecto pero me encantó. El personal es increíble, todos muy muy muy amables y atentos, te atienden de forma maravillosa, te hacen sentir genial! El desayuno buenísimo. Es un edificio viejo pero muy lindo, te sientes en casa. La puerta de mi habitación no se podía cerrar y no hay forma de poner candado a los casilleros, el baño no estaba muy limpio. Pero en general me encantó quedarme ahí. Es casi que todo lo que puedo pedir de un hostel!

    The owner is great! He is ready to help and takes good care of you. Breakfast is amazing (eggs, fruit, cheese, vegetables, couscous...). The room itself is clean with aircon/heater that works. Location is the best part if it! It is just about 1min to restauraurants and 5min to blue mosque and hagia sophia. We highly recommend it!

    Muy bueno

    Personal muy amable con sus huéspedes. La habitación en la que compartimos con seis personas es muy pequeña para esa cantidad y resulta muy complicado acomodarse y moverse dentro de la misma. Faltan conectores cercanos de electricidad para cada una de las camas, hace difícil cargar tu celular y tener la comodidad de la cercanía del mismo sin tener que levantarte de tu cama. Tienen una terraza y para usarla (personas de otras habitaciones) pasan por esa habitación y resulta incomodo e inseguro.
