#bunk taksim is a hostel which opened its doors last year and located just 10 minutes away by foot from the Taksim Square and İstiklal Avenue, where the most well-known shops, cafés and bars of Istanbul are located. Thanks to its central location, the hostel is also well-connected to the public transportation facilities. The bus stop for airport shuttles from/to İstanbul Atatürk Airport is located just 50 meters away from the hostel.

#bunk taksim has a unique design and it was praised in several international magazines as for being the “coolest hostel in town”. Plus, the hostel owns a huge rooftop bar with a panoramic view of İstanbul.

Participants of EUROsimA will stay in 4- or 6-bed rooms. Single-sex and mixed rooms will be available for participants upon request.

Participants who will come to İstanbul earlier and willing to book extra nights –to enjoy İstanbul before the start of EUROsimA– may book their bed in a 4- or 6-bed room for just 19€ per night per person. In this case, please send an e-mail to as soon as possible to secure your bed, as this is a limited-time offer and the hostel may not be available for such requests when spring season starts. Payment for extra nights will be done separately by the guests at check-in.

A form for the requests of the participants regarding the logistical matters during the conference and the cultural trip (e.g. arrangement of roommates, airport service, etc.) will be provided by e-mail shortly before the conference. Please do not send such requests in your e-mails as they will not be responded individually due to high e-mail traffic.

Details regarding the transportation from the airport to the hostel will be updated shortly before the conference. Transportation during the cultural trip, and the journey from İstanbul to Ankara afterwards will be provided by EUROsimA.
