Great atmosphere and a great location. Alex was awesome with setting up transportation and hot air balloon tour all the way in Cappadocia for me. The rooftop was also a great chill area to meet other travelers

This is an awesome hostel. We booked 3 nights and ended up staying 6. The staff are always happy to help with anything, they run a travel agency next door so it's easy to organise day trips (for eg: Gallipoli for Aus/NZ). Awesome location, short walk to shops and restaurants, Galata bridge and delicious fish kebabs for 5 TL. Everything is clean and the free breakfast is as good as I've had on my travels through Europe Rooftop bar/lounge is social and has cheap beers to meet other travellers

Great staff and a great place to meet people. The location is decent and easy to get to all the major historical sights. The not thing that sucks is that you aren't allowed to bring your own alcohol onto the rooftop terrace.

Our stay in Bada Bing Hostel was just splendid; we stayed in a double room, that is in a building opposite the main hostel building; both of them are tucked away from noise of Istanbul in a green side street. Building with double rooms was extremely secure (2 secured entrances and cameras in a hallway) but still having a charm of a boutique hotel; nicely restored stairway and new, comfortable rooms ensure a perfect stay. I was pleasantly surprised at a hotel-like service for budget prices. Love!

The location overall is great, but the hostel itself is a huge pain to find. Taxi drivers don't ever know where it is either. The staff is really fun and friendly though , and breakfast is good value (it's included). They are great about luggage storage- I left a suitcase here for two weeks free of charge. This hostel attracts a lot of fun characters who like to drink (this is a good thing).

The staff at Bada Bing are so lovely. It's a very comfortable hostel. Roof top terrace is so great! Breakfast is delish. What more could you want!! Loved our stay here. Thanks for having us :)

Good located, nearby the tram station to the main attractions, although not noisy. Helpful and friendly staff. Traditional Turkish Breakfast was included, but not really much. Lockers are under the beds. Clean citchen with free Turkish tea and drinking water. Wifi was sometimes slow and the toilet paper was sometimes missing. We recommend this hostel to everyone who doesn't want to stay in the expensive and touristic area.

Location is great!very close to pretty much everywhere!Staffs are nice and helpful.We enjoyed our Turkish breakfast every morning.Our room was ok.Only problem was that we were right by the staircase to the roof.It was a bit noisy with loud music at night especially Friday night when the party was on.other than that it's all good.Also i would suggest putting lock on all toilets an shower rooms.there were only 2 with lock on our floor. Thanks Bada Bing!

Not a very veggie-friendly place (but then that's difficult in Turkey anyway) as there's lots of meat on the breakfast menu and every evening meat is being barbecued. I liked the lockers under the beds. The beds were not so comfortable though. Also mosquito nets over the windows would have been good as I was bitten a lot at night. The bathrooms had a strange smell. The kitchen was not so nice. Overall average place.

Loved our three night stay at Bada Bing, location made it easy to walk to Taksim and Sultanahemt. When we arrived we were greeted by Ash who took us through everything to see and do in Istanbul and where it was located on the map. The roof top terrace and common room was awesome but you can't take your own alcohol up. We used their travel agency to plan the next week of our trip. Ash again was really helpful planning out a possible itinerary for us to book. Which we did.
