1) What is a hostel?
A hostel is basically an accomodation option for travellers looking for budget accommodation or people looking for a short city break with cheap and easy accommodation. The typical trademark of hostels is shared dormitories with bunk beds. Over the years however the industry has grown heavily with many hostels offering a wide variety of facilities and room types. Ranging from Hostel Art to double rooms. Hostels are less formal than hotels and focus more on offering a perspective for the city in question, a lifestyle and having fun.

9) Why did you name the hostel 'Rapunzel'?
First of all, we wanted the hostel to be related to the Galata Tower in some kind of way. Secondly, we wanted the hostel, building to be "personalized" and form her/his own character throughout years, apart from us. And eventually, we think that it is always nice to be pertained by fairy tales on the back of one's mind.
