Bahaus is such a great place to stay! I stayed in a 14 person mixed dorm and I had a blast. The rooms are nice and spacious, the bathrooms are nice and clean, and it never runs out of hot water. It is located a stones throw from the ocean side, and the majority of tourist sights. But what really... More

Loved my stay here. Easy walking distance to attractions, restaurants and bars. Saturday night pub crawl in Taksim was awesome and inexpensive:) Staff was fun and friendly. Especially dug the breakfast spread, lots of variety. Easy to meet people in common areas. Bathrooms were so clean and had hair dryers! Beds were comfy and came with these huge warm comforters....

I loved Bahaus. It has an amazing location that is walking distance to all the major sites such as Ayasofya and The Blue Mosque. It is also close to public transport for easy access to the other side of the river to get out of the touristy city center. The dorms are very clean with super comfortable beds equipped with...

A fantastic place to stay in Istanbul. right on the public transport link its easy to get to either the bus station or airports from the hostel. In the old town you have to walk past the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia to get to the hostel from the tram. The staff are great Kiwi, Dusty, Laura and the rest... More

The the small details which are so simple but many hostels lack, are what made bahaus one of my favorite hostels. Curtains around your bed for privacy, storage hangers next to your bed, plenty of power sockets, air con and overall cleanliness. But most importantly a huge terrace common area overlooking istanbul with free shisha and games there was always... More

We loved the hostel, rooms are really comfortable and clean; the rooftop has great views and staff is super friendly and helpful. Breakfast is ok, and the prices for food and drinks at the bar are average for this kind of hostels. Location is perfect in the center of Sultanahmet, walking distance to the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Basilica Cistern,... More

Super hospitable. Comfortable beds!! Staff go to extra lengths to help out and organize outings - pub crawl, hammam bath, walking tour etc. Would definitely go back. ... FYI tripadvisor 200 characters is too many. I am literary challenged! Back off hahah ;)

We had a great stay at Bahaus Guesthouse. The staff were helpful, the facilities we're great and it's in a great location. The hostel rooms were pretty basic but we're very well thought out with individual bed lighting, storage, two separate toilets in each room as well as a fun roof top bar with free breakky and a lovely view....

Staying in Sultanahmet

Neighborhood Profile
Sultanahmet
With so many unmissable attractions within a mere stroll of each other – and all set around the site of an ancient Byzantine hippodrome – Sultanahmet is an overwhelmingly popular tourist destination, and a prime location for visitors to be wowed on a truly epic scale. Beyond the wonders of the Blue Mosque, the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, and more, this relatively small area of Istanbul somehow manages to retain an air of peace and calm. It offers visitors a significantly less celebrated but nonetheless pleasant network of quaint lanes and side streets, majestic panoramas of the Bosphorus, and an impressive assortment of accommodation options for all budgets and tastes.
