Rarely do I write negative reviews as I am quite an easy going traveller with basic needs. However, Bada Bing did not meet my expectations whatsoever. We stayed in a private room with a private bathroom. Negatives: - Cleanliness: although the room was overall quite clean, the bathroom was very dirty. I used the communal bathroom (in the main building... More

When looking for a hostel in Istanbul, here are the reasons why this one is ok: 1) It's a good location- only 10 to 15 minutes from the Galata tower. 2) The private rooms are spacious with a good shower and air conditioning. However, if you expect any more from your stay at this hostel, then it isn't the place... More

Spent three nights here, good location, decent value for money. Alex was great- helpful and friendly. The other Turkish guys were all cheerful and helpful as well. The other staff consisted of older Turkish women who were unnecessarily rude. Made no attempt to make us feel welcome and rather soiled the vibe and attitude of the common area. Other than... More

Stayed for two nights in one of the apartments. The room was spacious, modern, clean and had a decent shower! The rooftop terrace is relaxed and comfortable and an environment conducive to socialising. Dinner is very reasonably priced and tasty to boot. The staff were very friendly and clearly took pride in their work and making the hostel the best... More

Fair located, clean rooms with good air conditioner, hot water and a nice rooftop bar. Walking diatance to good bars and nightlife. Its a place I would return If I visit Istambul again. They messes up our puck up from the airport, but thats ok, no problem!

Bada Bing looks like a newly constructed hostel. The location was pretty good, close to the Galata Tower (about 15 minutes walk). We stayed in the private rooms. They were spacious and clean and with awesome bathrooms and working A/C. If that’s all you are looking for in a hostel, then go for this place. You wont’ regret it. We... More

All staff equally helpful, friendly and sociable with guests. Location good as near nightlife of Beyoglu but also near tramway and not up the hill. Terrace nice for meeting other guests. As female solo traveller I felt fine coming home alone late. However, rooms were very small for the number of people, bathrooms and sheets never felt particularly clean, and... More

I didn't stay but popped in to ask about printing off some documents. The staff were really helpful, despite the fact I wasn't a guest. Can't speak for the accommodation, but a recommendation on helpfulness!
