Agora Guesthouse Reviews


Welcome to the Agora Hostel and Guesthouse. We are located steps away from the land marks, such as the hagia sophia, blue mosque, topkapi palace, grand bazaar and many other historical sites of Istanbul. We offer air conditioned rooms with free sheets, linens, massive lockers under your bed and a wide selection of free breakfast. Our roof top lounge has the breathtaking views of the bosphorus and the prince's islands. We have a cafe&bar, movies, board games, travel desk, library and well english spoken staff to make your stay an unforgetable one. The Agora is centrally heated in winter and we provide free warm, wool blankets too. The Agora is without doubt the cleanest hostel in Turkey and one of the cleanest hostels in Europe. Don't be fooled by the 10 plus years old photos of the other hostels. Come stay at the brand new Agora for a true backpackers experience.
