A total delight to stay here. Never have I been to a hostel where the staff was so considerate, helpful and hospitable as here. The staff provides a lot of good tips for your stay in the city, and has made my total experience therefore richer. (they have booked me tickets for a euroleague basketball game for example) Its great value for money with delish morning breakfast! When I come back to Istanbul, it'll be to Bada Bing!

Excellent service, delicious breakfast, and great location if you're looking to sightsee in Sultanahmet, but stay closer to the restaurants and nightlife in Beyoglu. Closely located to the tram, and an easy walk to both Taksim and Sultanahment. Highly Recommended!

Great location, nice place although it was under construction. Breakfast was disappointing, just cereal. Showers are either scalding or freezing.

Thanks for your constructive comments. You are right at the time of your staying there were some painting jobs but now they are all finished and we will update our pictures soon. You can be sure that it will be so different when you stay next time. Looking to see you again at our House. Take care.

I have booked Bada Bing Hostel just one night but when I arrived at the hostel extended my stay as 3 days. Because location is perfect it is very close to historical sites and also to the fun places. And the staff is very kind and helpful, when I arrived there they offered me fresh tea and told me almost everything I should know. There is also a travel agency under the hostel and they helped me out to book my Cappadocia trip. I definitely recommend all the travelers who visit Istanbul.

Staff was very helpful and fun to be around. Very nice maintenance ladies, even though they don't speak English. Hairdryers suck.

While I was there..there was a group of over exited and loud British teenagers..their everyday carnival til 4 am made the nights hard to fall asleep. Besides that everything was perfect! Stay there...take your ear plugs.

The hostel itself was great- location, value, cleanliness- especially the bathrooms! However, I was disappointed in the behavior of the guy at the front desk who is there during the day and not at night. I was in a group of 3- all of whom stayed 1 night in the hostel, and the 2nd night, only 1 of us stayed. He was very nasty when the other 2 came back to get the 1 who stayed, and wouldn't let her store her bag there for the day (when the guy at night said it was no problem to do so at all)

It was excellent and if we ever come back to Istanbul we will definitely go there again! The staff was amazing and they were always trying to help us with tips and recommendations. You have a nice and big room, big kitchen, free wifi and tea, nice tv area and breakfast in the morning. Besides, the neighbor is very safe and only a minutes away walking from the Galata Bridge and the old city. Galata is a nice area and the hostel is very cute. Everything perfect.
