The rooms are nice, A/C, lockers, power points at each bed as well as a light and curtain for the beds. The bathrooms were big but a bit smelly but I've noticed 99% of bathrooms in turkey are! The staff are great and very helpful. The rooftop bar has an amazing view, also where breakfast is served. Great place to... More

I went to Bahaus in June and had such a great time that I went back my second time in Istanbul. Great friendly staff. Easy to meet people. Group parties. I would definitely go back if I'm ever in Istanbul again.

I was in this beautiful hostel a week ago. I decide to come back, I made a booking in the cheapest dorm and when I arrived there, the inexperienced boy who was at reception, told me badly that room was full and he cancelled the booking. No upgrade either refund, we discuss and he kicked me out from the place.... More

This hostel is in an excellent location right next to the mosques and most of the historical attractions. However, it is kind of dead when it comes to night life so be prepared for that. Awesome free breakfast and a beautiful terrace. Great time!

The highlight of this hostel is the rooftop terrace bar. Gorgeous view over the water. The staff are really welcoming. I was given a tour of the hostel. After settling into my room I went upstairs to the terrace. One of the staff members was sat with travellers and he invited me to sit down and introduced me to people.... More

This hostel's location is excellent! It is maybe a 5 min walk from most of the major attractions you will want to see in Istanbul (Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace, Haggia Sophia) as well as a 5 minute walk in the other direction to the path along the Sea of Marmara!! The view from the rooftop hangout (where free breakfast is... More

Fantastic, probably one of the best hostels in Europe. 14 bed dorm room was brilliant - clean, big and w/ a p.point, reading light and privacy curtain with every bunk! Excellent bar/common room with awesome views over the city and the free events/food were great (pub crawl, movie night, soup)! Staff acted as if you were long lost friends, were... More
