Tony and team (Tugi, Jess, Bari) were fabulous, thank you. Hostel has everything you need- comfy beds/bedding, enough plug points, more than enough bathrooms, lockers and a great social area with a bar. Highly recommend.
Best location for visiting those famous places, helpful staffs who always provide useful advices. They can also help you to arrange your travel in the other cities. Neco tugi tony bahre jess thanks!
Great place! The location is fantastic and the staff are all super friendly. Run away from Tony though, that man wıll get you way too drunk! Just kıdding, he is great. The rooftop has a great lıttle bar and its very easy to meet people. Breakfast ıs included and is very tasty!
Friendly and helpful staffs, not far from tourist attractions.
Overall a great hostel, and I would definitely go back!
We booked a double private room for our visit. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. We had the use of two very large shower rooms which were very powerful and had more than enough space. The staff at Bahous were very friendly. I am travelling with my wife and they made us both feel so welcome. We went on the organised bar crawl on the Saturday which is worth the visit alone. The rooftop bar has stunning views of the city and is a great place to relax after a long day.
Bahaus hostel really takes care of its people. Barry took us on an impromptu adventure/grill out on prince island and Tony booked and organized a whole trip for me through the south of Turkey on the drop of a hat. They've made life in Istanbul incredibly easy and comfortable. Great views of Asia, comfortable rooms, a lovely bar upstairs, the best breakfast I've had at a hostel, and a genuinely friendly helpful staff. I highly recommend it!
Excellent place to stay! Staff was very nice at all moment. There is a nice bar at the roof with people all time ready for a beer, and there is at the same time place to stay confortable and quietly. Everyone available to make you feel at home. 😄
Best hostel I've stayed at in all my 4 years of travel. Very close(2minute) walking distance to blue mosque. Very clean, we were given a free walking tour, then did a pub crawl the next night. There's a cool bar upstairs, they have the numbers all the local stuff. And please do a Turkish bath while turkey. This hostel gets 100%

The male staff is being nicer to the female guest and kind of ignoring me, not telling me the activity they were holding. The only good common space is their bar, where the alcohol is pretty expensive and the staff try to get people to play beer game.
I was in the 6 bed female dorm ensuite, it has loads of space. Room & bathroom cleaned daily. Staff were friendly & helpful. Hostel is 5 minutes walk to Blue Mosque/ Hagia Sophia, 10 to tram stop. The breakfast was good. The common room was nice to hangout in, the bar girl was friendly & even when there weren't very many people there she managed to make a good atmosphere (sorry I forgot your name). Free computers were very useful. I definitely would stay here again when I come back to Istanbul.
The hostel is in a perfect and central location. It also has especially tasty breakfasts with very fresh bread and lots of terrific items. However, we were displeased with the cleanliness of the hostel. The rooms were dusty and not well-maintained. The entire hostel looks like it can use a deep clean. The lounge, in particular, looks as if it hasn't been updated or cleans in decades. The bathrooms are also in need of remodel. Overall, a great location, but poor cleanliness and interior.
Un lugar increible!!....la predisposicion del personal para ayudarte, es excepcional (Tuqui y Bari). Definitivamente recomendable 100%. Incredible place to stay!!... staff actitud to help is amazing (Tuqui and Bari). Definitly recommendable 100%. Juan Martin (Argentina)

The staff and bartender were extremely friendly. The bar on the top floor had an amazing view and was a great place to meet other guests.
I did enjoy my stay in one of the most surprising cities, I've ever encountered. The hostel was clean and has been renovate, recently. Especially the people, who work at the hostel, do everything they can to make your stay unforgettable.
All the staffs are so kind and friendly, also helpful. Very close to blue mosc area The curtain thing for every bed was gooood
Hostel was in a great location right by the blue mosque. Has a nice bar / patio / common room overlooking the water. Hostel staff was extremely friendly and like they say your a guest for the first hour then your one of their friends. Rooms are large beds are comfy, with curtains for privacy. There's also power outlets in the beds. Breakfast was good and healthy with juices, apples, oranges, cheeses, bread, some meats, eggs and a bunch of vegetables. Showers hot. Without a doubt would stay again
i would definitely recommend this hostel, the location is really perfect, the atmosphere is really nice, and the most amazing thing is the Staff, they r so genres and they really make u feel home, if i go back to Istanbul, that´s my place, thanks for everything guys, and keep up the amazing job, looking forward to see you soon ;)
