Those of us who are natural explorers and travelers have had some experience with hostels at some point in our lives. We have learned from personal experience that showers don’t always mean hot water, windows don’t always open, and the concept of clean is, well, relative.
A giant step in the right direction for hostel culture is the multiple-storied building (minus an elevator) in Beyoğlu that is now open as a stylish, hip, clean, comfortable, functional hostel called Bunk. Catering to the needs of all sorts of world travelers, what sets Bunk apart from other hostels is its standpoint. At Bunk, a hostel doesn’t have to mean overcrowded dorms, ugly rooms, bad hygiene, or tasteless design. At Bunk, a hostel is a sort of accommodation where you get to meet fellow travelers in a warm, design-minded setting. And it comes with a jacuzzi on the terrace. What more could you ask for from a hostel?
At Bunk, you’ll get the hostel classics (all in good style), such as 24-hour security, free wireless internet, kitchen and lounge area, shared computers, mixed as well as girls-only dorms, twin rooms, private rooms, and a few luxury additions like marble bathrooms, a rooftop terrace, stylish common area, and breakfast (included in the price). The rooms, although small, are functional, and all feature a mosque-like ceiling.
If you’re looking for cheap but good-quality accommodation in the heart of Istanbul we suggest you check out Bunk. And keep following us to get the latest on new Bunk locations that will open in Istanbul next year.
