I stayed here briefly for a day and not needing much sleep time, stayed in a very large room with about a dozen bunk beds. Luckily it was low season, and there were a few people in the room. Having stayed in many hostels, I immediately noticed a few things that stood out: there were curtains dividing the bunks that... More

A very social hostel where you can still manage to get some sleep and lay low if you want. The staff were all really great with special mention going to Chinar who was super helpful, had lots of good advice and was just really happy to talk to you... The only slight damper was one staff member who constantly asked... More

We stayed at this hostel in Sept, 2014 for 2 days. It's right in the center of all the tourist attractions like Blue mosque, Topakapi palace, Hagia Sofia etc. The manager Cinar, is really helpful and great to get advice from about places to see, things to do. The rooms are clean and neat. We stayed in a 4 bed... More

I absolutely loved this Hostel. It is literally around the corner from all of the tourist attractions, Blue Mosque, Sofia, Grand Bazaar, Museums, everything within walking distance. If you need to, you can also take the very accessable public transportation system. The hostel itself has the best atmosphere, excellent facilities very clean and homey. Staff goes above and beyond to... More

Stayed there in September 2014 for 2 days, and regretted the short stay instantly. Istanbul is a beautiful city and Bahaus is located right in the centre of it all. It has a great location and the manager there, Cinar was really helpful. He helped us plan the entire Turkey itinerary and got us in touch with local tour companies... More

Great hostel, really enjoyed my 2 nights here in a 4 bed ensuite room. Very helpful staff, ideal location, a handy rooftop bar and free wifi. Would definitely stay again. It's been a few years since my backpacking days and I tend to stay in hotels these days, but was travelling solo and was really glad to revisit the backpacker... More

Thank you for such a great time guys - I loved getting to know all the staff and also meeting the great group of travelers at the hotel. Highly recommended, will definitely be back next time I'm in Istanbul. By the way- thanks for the directions to Sabiha, Çinnar, it looks like I am going to make it with plenty... More

I stayed two nights at the Bahaus in mid-August. I was booked into an 8 person room; when I arrived, I was told it was full, so I was placed for the night in a 4 person room at no extra charge. The next morning, when I was ready to switch to the 8 person room, I was told there... More

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.
