Bada Bing hostel is excellent value for your money. It is just 3 minutes walk to ferries, metro, grocery store, fish market, cafe and restaurants. The bathrooms and showers are outside the sleeping room. The social and hang-out areas are in the rooftop or at the lobby, make it easy to get proper rest for weary travelers. For night life, the hostel is five short minutes walk from Galata Tower. The kitchen area is excellent to cook up fresh sea-food that you could get from the fish market.

You super big lockers in the rooms, the lobby has a code to get in an out during the night, so that no intruders get in. It's in the new city, 2 minutes walk from Galata tower and 5 minutes walking from the Old City. Super easy area, no climbing needed. Beds are clean and comfortable. The staff is really handy with everything you may need. Wifi, guitar, PS3, kitchen, fridge, hot water all the time. Whatever you may need is there! Very nice stay.

If you're looking for a nice place to stay you really should check out Bada Bing! By the second you arrive you feel welcome, you get offered some tea and coffee or - when you're really lucky - even some Raki. The staff is awesome, they help you with anything, show you around and hang out with you. People staying there are from all over the world, they can tell you stories and there's always someone to party with you. I highly recommend Bada Bing for open-minded, friendly and happy fellows!

The staff working there was extremely helpful! We received mail with instructions how to get to the Hostel from the airport, and also useful tips about getting around in the city. If staying in Istanbul this is the place to stay.

The Bada Bing Hostel is central to everything and you're only a 20 minute walk, at most, to any of the major sites in town. The staff here are some of the best that I've ever come across staying in a hostel. Volkan, the owner, is so helpful for giving information about what to do in the city. He even took us out a couple of nights to show us the nightlife and ordered take-out Turkish food for us on the nights we would stay in the hostel. There is no other place I would ever stay in Istanbul!

The owner Volkan was very friendly and helpful. He spoke good english and we were very happy with our stay. We opted for a private room as we were a couple. It was value for money and fairly clean. Location was also good, walking distance from the Spice market and easy connection back to the airport on the European side. Thanks Volkan!

The location is great, the rooms clean, and the atmosphere always friendly. The staff was so helpful and nice, and always available with a tip or suggestion and answers to our questions. The hostel owner even ordered us pizza because we couldn't figure out the website! This hostel comes with my highest recommendations.
