Excellent hostel! Very clean, great location and Volkan goes over and above to help his guests and make sure that they feel welcome. Staying here is like a home away from home, and the hostel is situated in a great location. Overall an excellent place to stay, would definitely recommend it!

Boys and girls, Being on erasmus in Istanbul, I was looking for a cheap and well-situated hostel... This is how I got to Bada Bing! A great and very welcoming team took good care of me both times I stayed here! Knowing the city, I think it's an excellent situation because it's on the tramline to go visit the historic... More

Located within a few blocks from Tophane tramstop. Quiet neighborhood. Hostel is ok. Everything is clean, and bathroom is very good. Rooms have very noisy beds.. Not a lot of space in rooms. Staff is very friendly and willing to help. Common facilities are basic and limited

Friendliest staff I've dealt with so far.. from their really chill personalities to their very helpful advice on where to go.. very concerned on their guest's experience in Istanbul.. always glad to help. Loved that they have a bar crawl on Fridays.. which is awesome not just for meeting other traveler's staying in the hostel but also to go to... More

A new hostel in the center of old Istanbul. Staff is warm and extemely helpfull. No breakfast served but tea and cornflakes ad lib in the morning. Comfort is modest -after all it is a hostel. Shared bathroom which is kept very clean. Dorms can be cold in autumn.

We went there for one night and stayed four days. The staff is very nice, very helpful, and very professional, the hostel is brand new, which means that everything is clean, and perfectly maintained. The location is quite good, near the tramway, and some great monuments. The only negative detail: wifi is quite difficult to configure upstairs, but I'm sure... More

It was my second place that I stayed in Istanbul. I stayed there for 3 nights and compared to the first one, I would say that I liked it much more. Staffs were really nice, especially Mustafa was very helpful! Although at the beginning, it looked like it was located in middle of no where but it has actually very... More
