Rooms are very clean and basic but comfortable and the hustle and bustle of the city is shut away once you enter.

Nobel Hostel is a narrow building the pleasantly spirals up to a great terrace with a self-catering kitchen and barbeque area.

Nobel hostel is next door to and in partnership with Sofa restaurant where you will receive a complimentary breakfast every morning as well as a 20% discount on meals.
The restaurant has a cozy atmosphere and great service. The chef, Seyfi has a great menu full of turkish dishes and delicious vegetarian options.
The grilled vegetables ‘Izgara Sebze' are especially good. There is also a bar here serving beer and spirits or you could give the local raki a go.
