Welcome to Planet Paprika Hostel, where you can experience the Turkish hospitality at the heart of Istanbul.
Our hostel is providing the cozy, friendly and clean place to stay. We are not a big , impersonal hulk hostel. We value the independent travelers and we are against any kind of discrimination. So come here to be a citizen of Planet Paprika.
Planet Paprika Hostel is conveniently located at Taksim square. We are the closest hostel to Taksim square and Taksim metro station , just a few steps away from Istiklal Street, the most happening place in Istanbul.
At Taksim you can have a better chance to mingle with the local, not with a tourist. And after the exhausting night out, you don’t need to worry about the transportation to your hostel. We are right here to serve you.
We are also closer to old Istanbul; the touristic peninsula and big touristic spots. Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Blue Mosque, St. Sophia and Topkapı Palace. You can walk to Sultan Ahmet or you can take a metro with tram. We prefer walking. Since it takes only 30 mintutes from here to Eminönü and a bit more to Sultan Ahmet on foot. On the way to old town you can visit Cite de Pera , Nevizade , Galata Tower, Galata Bridge , fish market , Yeni Mosque, historical Sirkeci train Station, and so on. Yes. Everything you want to visit in Istanbul is on the way to Sultan Ahmet from our hostel.
And Taksim Square is the transportation hub in Istanbul, so you can visit almost everywhere without any worry.
