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!

This hostel has such friendly staff who really accommodated us in our stay in Istanbul. They were genuinely really helpful in our inquiries about Istanbul and cared about customer service. However, the water did not work for some of the time in our stay, which was inconvenient. I think some maintenance is needed when it comes to the bathroom and... More

Overall the stay was pretty good, the rooms were quite noisy but you'd expect that from a room with 12 people, however the bathrooms weren't cleaned often and the toilets leaked but overall the stay was pretty good

I stayed at BadaBing on my return to Istanbul. It's location is a short walk to the tram line meaning a very quick journey to all the sites of Istanbul! There's not much to do in the direct vicinity however so you do have to walk a little to find restaurants/bars etc. I stayed in my own room which is... More

Arrived in istanbul and had this place booked, within walking distance of all main attractions and the Taksim square walking street where all the night life is... Able to cook your own food although the BBQ they put on every night for 10TL is incredible. Best chips and chicken burgers.... The staff are great and made this place push for... More

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

We stayed at Bada Bing Hostel Istanbul for three nights in June. The room we were provided with was really great, better than we expected for the price. 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
