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....

I really enjoyed my stay at the Bahaus. The location is perfect, my room was spacious and the terrace was awesome. However, the hot water always ran out, the wifi was weak and the breakfast was very basic. Apart from that I had a very positive experience at the Bahaus.

My sister and I stayed at Bahaus and were so impressed! The staff are so helpful and friendly. They go above and beyond to make your stay great. The facilities are really good and the rooms/bathrooms are very clean. Breakfast is included. The Bahaus is located 2 minutes from the Blue Mosque - perfect location! We will be back!

I stayed for one whole month and Alisher was always there to help me, his recommendations about Istanbul were brilliant and accurate, he answered patiently all my questions and he was fully interested in the culture of my country, which I totally appreciated. Also, the nice ladies that help with the breakfast every morning were always smiling and open to... More

I went to this hostel based on highly populated and positive reviews. However, it was below my expectations. The hallways was dark and a day or two in my 5 days stay there, there was no hot water in the shower in the evening. The breakfast was average. The in-room wifi signal was weak as well. The staff were nice... More

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.
