I have been calling this place home for 4 years and I am loving it. I'm currently abroad for the summer so the house will be empty. My friend will help you getting the keys can show you around.
My house is located very near to Osmanbey metro station (just one stop from Taksim). It has a big terrace where you can relax. I am living with my 20 years old brother. The room is well lit and very spacious. There is a double bed, a desk and a wardrobe which you can use.
You will have access to a fully equipped kitchen, our big terrace where you can chill and we also have a bathroom and a small toilet which you can always use. We are very open-minded and friendly people so basically you can use the whole flat as it is your own home. There are no restrictions :)
I am living with my 20 years old brother. We are new at this site but we host people frequently via some other accomodation website where you can surf other people's couches :) (my username is myonecp in that website, you can check out my profile;)) so I am very experienced with interacting with travellers from all around the world. However, if you just want to stay at the room and don't want to be bothered at all, that is perfectly fine with us too.
As you can understand from the rest of the description, this is not a hotel. We like to treat our guests as temporary housemates. This means that you are expected to act a part of the community. If you are not familiar with the concepts of keeping your environment clean and living together with cooperation, then you should better not contact us. This doesn't mean we are crazy hygiene freaks, we are not.But believe me, some people lack common sense as it comes to living with other people.
Pets are allowed and you can smoke anything in the house. There is no curfew or anything but of course you have to keep in mind that we have neighbours and high noise can be a problem after certain hours.
I am living in Istanbul with my brother in a nice apartment. Honestly i find it really hard to describe myself i have always hated these kind of questions because i can write all the good things in the world here and be an asshole in real life(but i am not :) i have always admired people who travel around the world and people don't have a monotone life. i try to travel whenever i can and i am lovin'it :)
