We booked this at Sirkeci Station in Istanbul. The international ticket desk sells the ticket - 206 turkish lira for 2 people in a 4 berth couchette from Ankara [Ankara-travel-guide-602437] to Tehran. We left it until Thursday 12th April to book for Wed 18th April and as a result were very lucky to get tickets. The travel agent we tried (Turista) said it was full and books up at least a month in advance. The first guy at Sirkeci said full and the 2nd guy said full, but we pleaded with him and he offered us 2 beds sharing with men. We took this as we don't mind but don't think they usually do it.
