Good accommodation. Chilled and relax. 10 minute walk to Istikal street. 5 Minute to Galata Tower. 15 minute Walk to sultanahmet district. Nice location a bit secluded. Good if you are in for chill relaxed visit to istanbul. Easy transportation. Not good for party travellers.

I stayed at Bada Bing for almost two weeks last fall. It was reasonably priced, conveniently located, with friendly staff and patrons. The rooms are not huge, but they do the job. The complementary breakfast, while a bit sparse, did the job. And the restaurant's actual menu is good. Best of all were the other travelers I met, who are... More

I'd never actually stayed in a hostel before, and my time at Bada Bing definitely convinced me to do it more often. The staff was super nice and were happy to give suggestions about traveling around the city. The rooftop bar was a great place to meet people, and Volkan, the owner, took us out to places that only the... More

This is a great hostel in Istanbul. It is very close to the Istanbul Modern art museum which is fantastic. There are many cafes and restaurants in the area also. The tram and ferry are close by, making it easy to get to the old town or to other areas of the city. There is a bar upstairs for guests... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Bada ing Hostel for a few nights in mid March. Very easy to find from the Airports right next to the tram line. On arrival you meet Volkan who owns the joint and he sits you down and offers you a drink and goes through the whole city with you and gives... More

Once you take the first step in this amazing city you become overwhelmed by it`s size and its wonders. But being away from home, one needs the comfort of a nice atmosphere, Vulkan gave that to us. With his wisdom he helped us explore the most hidden places in the city and with his jokes he let us to get... More

I stayed in both a single (shared bathroom) room and a 2 bed (ensuite) apartment at Bada Bing (both alone and with friends). The facilities are very clean, better than average for a hostel. Bada Bing is easy to get to via public trans from the airport (just follow the instructions that are emailed). It's about 5 minutes' walk from... More

Brilliant hostel, one of the best i have stayed at. Really cheap and great location. The staff was extremely helpful, especially Vulcan, gave us really good recommendations on what to do and where to eat. Rooms and toilets are spacious and very clean and they have a nice common area where we were able to chat with others as well.... More

The hardest hostel to find EVER! Tucked away, way off the beaten path, not visible from the roads or from any other locations. Took me and my friends HOURS to find. We got lost, cried in a Starbucks, and asked a local to use his phone to call our hostel. They sent someone out to find us but it took... More
