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!


Really nice rooms, friendly staff, clean and close to the tram line. Did not like how the check in was so late.


The best hostel in Istanbul, the perfect location allow you to reach every attraction just walking. The staff is always available and polite. The roof terrace make the atmosphere magic. I definetely come back at bada bing


Walking distance to the historical center. Helpful personnel.

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.


Located in a hipster district great for exploring nearby. Great staff, social party atmosphere with other travellers. Great rooftop terrace to meet others where included free breakfast is served. Unfortunately dorm was a little cramped with barely any room to move but still very clean as was the bathroom. Excellent facilities - kitchen, wifi, computers, paid laundry service though. Note that there is no lift as is the usual with hostels. One of my favourites of my Europe trip.


Bada bing is a great hostel! Lovely staff great ambiance.

always enjoy my stay at bada bıng. thıs ıs the 2nd tıme ıve stayed wıth these guys and they do a great job at makıng you feel welcome. good rooms and the chılled out rooftop bar ıs cool. ıll be back for sure


A good hostel, located right in between the galata bridge (to access all the monuments) and taksim square (shopping/nightlife). The rooms are fairly average, however the common area and rooftop is lively. The host cooks optional dinner every night for $5aud and it's delicious!! Breakfast has good options too. Great staff, friendly atmosphere.
