Great vibe, very comfortable stay. Staff are definitely cool and most convenient neighborhood. The top floor bar is a good touch and sunset from balcony is very beautiful.

The atmosphere and faculty at this hostel were top-notch. My friend and I even received a free, room upgrade. From the good location, to the helpful and friendly staff, to the rooftop bar/lounge, Bahaus is definitely the place to stay when you visit Istanbul.

Best hostel I've been to in Europe - perfect location right in the centre of all the main sights, staff were very friendly - organised my trips to Gallipoli and Cappadocia for me and the room I stayed in was easily the best I've experienced. Also, events staged every night on the terrace and free breakfast!! Would highly recommend to anyone who is visiting Istanbul.

I was told by my friends who had come to Istanbul in the past to stay at Bauhaus. I'm really glad that I heeded their recommendation. The staff is extremely welcoming and friendly providing a great atmosphere to the hostel. There is a bar on the top floor where you are able to meet the other travelers which is another really great asset to this hostel. If you are considering travelling to Istanbul I would definitely recommend Bauhaus.

Now having staying here a second time, Bahaus hostel really is the best hostel in Istanbul for a fantastic location, lively atmosphere and friendly local staff, with Toni, Bahre and Tugi all going above and beyond to help and advise. The roof top terrace has stunning views, is a great place for meeting people and where most nights activities are organised. The pub crawl with Bahre not to be missed, you'll go to some of the best places to experience the vibrant night life of istanbul offers

Great hostel! If you look for a place with great atmosphere to meet other travellers look no further. In addition, the staff was outstanding: since there were not enough people for the regular pup crawl due to low season (which I'm certain would have been awesome btw ) they took me and another guy on a private trip to a couple pretty neat clubs - awesome night, great effort to make guests happy, great hostel experience! Recommended!

Our first time staying at a hostel and it was the best experience we've had while traveling! We were a group of 3 females staying in the 6 female dorm. February is off peak season, the first half of the trip it was just us three occupying the room. The room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. Location was perfect, the Blue Mosque, Aya Sofia, and Topkapi palace are no more than 3 mins away walking. The staff were very helpful and fun. Bahre's jokes were memorable. Overall great experience!

Bahaus hostel is really the perfect place to stay in Istanbul. It is clean, safe and the stuff is extremely warm and helpful. The location is perfect, just a minute walk away from the Blue Mosque. You have a store right across the road. I couldn't wish for anything more. When I come back to Istanbul I will definitely come back to this hostel!

Very good location. I lived in a 6 Female room (actually 4 beds when I arrived) and the ensuit was good as well. I had a comfortable bath and rest. Breakfast was basic and not bad. I didn't have a sense of SECURITY as the door was controlled by a coded lock instead of any keys, which means anyone who knows the very simple codes can enter the room at any time. And you couldn't lock it from the inside. There is a bar right upstairs to our room, noisy in the weekend nights. TV & music was too loud

Its fantastic. The staff are helpful nice and friendly. Rooms are super clean with a feeling of a share house rather than a hostel. Def coming back when i next visit

This is my first time reviewing a hostel, but after staying in hostels all over Europe and staying at this one, I was overwhelmed by the generosity of the employees. The beds were equipped with its own outlet, mirror, and curtain making it a comfortable place. The upstairs terrace was always a good place to meet people and hangout with the awesome employees, and the pub crawl on Friday and/or Saturday nights are always fun! Thanks again Bahaus for an great experience in Istanbul!

Bahaus is a MUST for travelers in Istanbul! Not only the hostel itself, but also the staff is trying their best to give you the time of your life! Clean, safe, fun and caring, and not to forget - cheap! Who doesn`t want to drink something at 2 in the morning, at the rooftop bar, meet new friends in a matter of seconds and still get everything figured out the morning after? Guys from the hostel showing you around the best sightseeing points and pub crawl - it makes you wish for more!

Hostel was clean and nice. It is an average and basic hostel, just how I like it. Close to mayor attractions and transportation. Atmosphere was good, and it was easy to meet other people. The bar was nice, although the drinks overpriced for a hostel. There is however a weird rule where you aren't allowed to bring in your own alchohol in the hostel. I find this a bit weird as getting a buzz on from the hostel is one way i try to save money, and usually hostels are sympathetic of this.

the only problem I've had was the moldy smell in the rooms, though that's probably a seasonal issue

the hostel was very nice. Could have been a bit cleaner, but it was still ok. The bar at the rooftop was really nice for interacting with other guests and the view was beautiful.

Great hostel!! They run events such as pub crawls at night which made meeting other travelers much easier. The staff are a riot, even though we had to drag the bar man to his bed one night haha. I had an excellent time here and my only regret is that I didn't stay longer in Istanbul. Keep up the great work Bahaus!
