Beyoglu's Flashpacker HostelAcross the Bosphorus from the tourist area of Sultanahmet lies Beyoglu and Taksim Square, home to Galata Tower, the Fish Market, and #bunk, a chic and upscale flashpacker haven. The hostel is small but has a great atmosphere, complete with free Wi-Fi, a fourth-floor patio overlooking nearby Iskitlal Caddesi, and comfy beds complete with plugs, curtains, and lights. Dorm rooms start at €20 and #bunk is opening a second location in Taksim soon.
