I was in bada bing hostel in March 2013 for 4 days. The hostel is very good located close to Galata tower, in walking distance to Taksim and sulthanamet and very close to the boat and tram stations. I was there with a girl friend and we never felt unsafe. The rooms are nice and clean, the bathroom too (but somehow, there is never enough toilet paper there). The staff was very helpful and friendly and you get a nice introduction about Istanbul when you arrive and good tips to find good food!!
When I was there, they were building the reception new, so the place was kind of a construction area, but I assume that they will have an beautiful reception for the high season!
