Bada Bing is a very well located hostel. Very close to the Galata tower, Taksim or Sultanahmet and at the same time far enough to take a rest. It's a perfect location. The hostel is clean, has good facilities ( kıitchen,PC) and a nice rooftop bar. Also the staff at the reception is very friendly. Especially Henife is very helpful and smiley girl. I recommend this hostel!

Great hostel with an awesome location in one of my favorite cities. The staff is friendly and helpful and I decided to extend my stay twice during my time here. Facilities are clean and well maintained, with beds made for you every day. Wifi is a bit slow, but there's so much to do elsewhere in the city that it almost never mattered. Would definitely recommend!

I tried a couple of different hostels in different areas of Istanbul, and, for me, this hostel was perfect. It is in the best possible location, being within a two-minute walk of the tram and within walking distance of all the major touristic sights in Sultanahment and the lively night life district of Taksim. The staff were lovely and all spoke perfect English. Hanife at reception is such a nice, gentle personality and is always willing to help with anything you need. Clean, cozy rooms as well!

I thought I was going to stay in Istanbul for only 3 days but I stayed 20 days thanks to the great hospitality and friendship of this amazing hostel. I've traveled around the world and I can say that this is the best hostel I've ever stayed. Not only is very clean and has an amazing atmosphere, it has also a perfect location. Hanife always makes you feel as home, always smiling and always caring about you; she's been a great hostess in this amazing city. If you come to Istanbul stay in Bada Bing

Great location to the Hostel right by the Galata Bridge and mayor ferry stations. The atmosphere was also amazing, everyone working there went out of their way to make you feel welcome and make sure you had everything you needed (especially the pretty girl working the reception during the mornings). Only cretinism is the internet isn't very good anywhere but the lobby, other than that my stay at the hostel was perfect!

Had a nice double-bed private room, unfortunately quite close to the noisy roof-top bar. At night the streets right around the hostel didn't seem too safe but tram/metro stop was very close. Supermarket near-by, also the Bosphorus very close. No breakfast offered. Rather decent unisex washroom on each floor. Nice lobby and roof-top area.

Upon arrival we were greeted by the one and only, Soner. Let me start by saying, what a legend. He welcomed us with a chilled vibe and sorted our booking without a fuss. His easy to talk to nature and willingness to help with general knowledge as well as travelling in Turkey was great and made our stay and overall journey across Turkey a treat. The hostel itself is well positioned and a nice place to relax, with a sweet rooftop bar. Until next time, Nath

Very good hostel to stay. The stuff is super friendly. They have a nice rooftop to hang out and drink beers in the evening. There are always a lot of fun people to hang out with. To be honest thats all you need in a hostel. I would definately stay there again.

Great hostel.

Great, clean space that was a central location to many areas, including the tram and multiple ferries. We were out pretty early each morning (8/9am) and returned for a mid-day rest (3/4pm) before heading out for the evening. It was the perfect location for that. The staff was friendly and we saw lots of folks hanging out in the communal spots (downstairs lounge area and rooftop bar) though we didn't spend much time in either.

This hostel is perfectly located, the rooms are big and nice. However, for the same price, a lot of hostels offers breakfast too!

Excellent hostel. Is in the less touristy side of Istanbul but still walking distance to all the sights. Great nightlife real close by and great atmosphere on the rooftop that leads to some wild nights.
