This centrally located hostel is ideal for backpackers, which require neither luxury nor tourist treatment. Simple but clean rooms, a rooftop terrace with incredible views of the Bosphorus and a relaxed family atmosphere make the appeal of Bahaus hostels. Helpful and hospitable owners, travelers from around the world that you can get to know by a beer, movie night, or... More

What to say about ole Bahaus.... I have stayed at this hostel four times since 2007 and twice at Bahaus Get-Away in Dalyan. Neco, the owner, goes to great lengths to ensure that Bahaus Istanbul (and Dalyan) are updated and as modern as a hostel can be. Tugi would bend over backwards and give you the shirt off his back...

I loved Bahaus. The staff were so friendly and by the end of my stay here - I felt like I had made awesome friends with the people who worked here. The rooftop area was great. Very Turkish and really comfy. Breakfast was pretty basic but still good! Value was the best thing, this was so cheap! I stayed in... More

The best thing about this hostel is definitely the location. Just 5 min walk from Sultanahmet (where you can find the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, Topkapi palace, Basilica's cisterns...). The second one is the staff. "Boss" (the owner), Bari (the barman/ pub-crawler) and the kid at the front desk are amazing and they will do everything to make you feel... More

Really great hostel. Price - €11 a night for a dorm bed, so nice and cheap. Rooms - Stayed in a 14 bed dorm, which sounds like it would be insanely crowded but the room is set up so you have plenty of space, and with the really cool curtains surround each bunk, you also have plenty of privacy. 3...

Very good hostel in a great location within walking distance of Sultanhamet's key attractions. The dorms and bathrooms are clean and very comfortable. Staff are friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again. Indeed, it is probably one of the best hostels I have stayed in in a major European city and is great value for money.

Bahaus has everything! I was in a 10 person dorm and it was one of the best dorm rooms i have ever stayed in. Clean, spacious, cool, beds have curtains and it had 2 proper bathrooms attached to it. The rooftop bar has cheap drinks, great food and lots of people to meet. The staff are super helpful and happy... More

The hostel has a nice rooftop bar and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The price is fair, the location is perfect (close to the blue mosque) and the rooms are clean. The only bad thing is that the bar closes early and no one can stay upstairs.

Clean, modernized, spacious, but still soulful and local in flavor. Beds had curtains, private lights and outlets. If I could have stayed extra time at Bahaus, I would have -- Tony made us feel like family. Sitting on the roof and drinking Efes/smoking shisha was a highlight. The hostel is young, mainly travelers, and my bf and I left with... More

I arrived in November and 2 days earlier than my original booking through Hostelworld. Staff was very accomodating and kind. They gave me a better room than I originally had. The location of this guesthouse is central and excellent for getting around to see all the sites. I stayed in a shared room of 8 and it was full even... More
