My son, who stayed at the hostel in the dorm room for 4 days, said it was a great deal for the money. He also loved the location, atmosphere and the breakfast. I loved the fact that Volkan was extremely nice and understanding when I contacted the hostel looking for my 18-year old son, woke him up and asked him... More

Very clean, spacious and great airconditioning. However, the bed sheets were a little dirty which was unpleasant. The staff were friendly and spoke good english however we had arranged to be picked... More

Had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at the start of May this year. Found all members of staff to be super helpful on a variety of things such as places to go around the city, where to eat and where to go out. They were always happy to answer our questions. The hostel itself is nice and clean with well maintained... More

We were impressed by the welcome of the staffs. They knows the area very well and eager to help us around. You should not miss their recommendations. The rooms are good enough. Although we experienced a problem with water lines, we could see they tried their best to provide good services.

The staff is really friendly and the hostel very well located. It is in a quiet street (even though the neighborhood bars can play music quite late) and the private rooms are almost equivalent to an hotel (minibar, safe, cleaning etc.). The staff we met werer really friendly and gave good recommandation on places to visit (including on the asian... More

Badabing Hostel is an extremely chilled out place and it's located perfectly for daytrips to many relevant sights. The rooms have all the backpacker needs, the showers and toilets are OK. The staff is really helpful and cool, and the rooftop lounge is the perfect place to get known to other travellers. We had a lot of fun when we... More

Bada Bing is a nice hostel with friendly employees. The rooms come with airconditioning which is really nice at hot days. The bathrooms are clean and the showers are nice. At night you can have a beer at the rooftop terrace. All great. One little advice: buy a lock for the suitcase-cabin under your bed. Otherwise once you're back home... More

I've been there a week and it was really great. The guys from the reception were kind and the rooftop was really nice with a bar and normal prices for a beer or food. The location was also perfect. Nearby the big shoppingstreet and the bridge. It was clean and it was a perfecr holiday!

I stayed in Bada Bing hostel and that was as to stay at home. At our arrival we were very welcomed by the guys at the hostel in the hall and they gave us all sort of information about the city and Turkey. The hostel has a perfect position to visit most Istambul attractions and the people managing the hostel... More

I stayed at Bada Bing for several days in one of the large dorm rooms. Overall it was a decent place. The staff in particular were great - all friendly, helpful guys. The location was also perfect, as it's a quick tram ride to the historical Sultanahmet district but also close to shopping (Istiklal Street), Taksim, and the Karakoy ferry... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bada Bing's neighborhood is an up-and-coming area that gives travelers the best of both worlds: a central location that inspires effortless travel to Istanbul’s most worthy destinations. Its strategic locale is within walking distance of the real, modern, buzzing district of Taksim, and the awe-inspiring historical district of Sultanahmet. But if you want to sleep away from the overwhelm of Taksim’s nightlife and Sultanahmet’s hiked-up tourist prices, Bada Bing’s neighborhood is right for you. Wherever you choose to go on a given day, your journey will start in the heart of Istanbul. ... more   less
