Staying at Bahaus was amazing. Very fun. I stayed in a dorm, which offered privacy in the form of curtains around your bed. A passcode to enter the dorm was useful, not having to search for keys. The bar and food was expensive compared to elsewhere but the staff made it very fun to stay in. I didn't have a good experience with the travel agent they recommended, he was quite rude. I would definitely stay here again.

It was a great location, really close to all the city's must-sees. It was clean, safe, and secure. There are activities every day to help build community. If you're traveling alone, it's easy to meet other people. The staff (especially Tugi) are really knowledgeable about the city. They help you find anything you need and help plan your time in the city. It's a fantastic hostel!

Staff was amazing! Very helpful, easy to communicate with, and FUN! Hostel organizes activities for guest every day of the week. The Saturday night pub crawl is a must. Roof top bar and lounge is a great place to relax, drink, and get to know your fellow travelers.

Great hostel overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The staff is helpful and friendly. Dorm rooms are in good condition and all the facilities were in working order. Nice rooftop bar with view. The only problem with the location is that it is right in the middle of a tourist trap, which makes it easy to navigate to the main attractions, but you need to take the tram to get to budget eateries.

The staff is amazing. The rooftop bar and terrace are the place you will meet friends to visit the Blue Mosque with. The 14 bed dorm is very nice, the AC makes it nice and cool, and the curtains at each bed gives you privacy. The bathrooms are great, clean and modern. The atmosphere of the whole place is so good, I even stayed in the hostel one day just because I wanted to relax a bit. The only thing I would love would be a kitchen. The food and drinks at the bar are a little expensive.

Best hostel stay I could imagine!! Zero complaints - I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I wish all hostel experiences could be just like this one. Very clean, excellent facilities. Awesome, friendly, social atmosphere on the rooftop terrace. They organize a wide range of activities and it's so easy to meet people even when traveling alone. But the best part was the staff - they quickly feel like friends you've known for forever. They really care and offer incredible advice. Stay here!!!

Fantastic hostel! Our second visit - the staff here make you feel extremely welcome. After a few months travel Bahuas was a home away from home. The rooftop bar has a great vıbe and the daıly actıvıtıes orgaınısed by staff create a great socıal atmosphere.

Very cool vibe, I was able to meet and create a solid group of people who trekked it around each day.. The terrace is excellent for a few afternoon beers. The staff are fantastic also. The beers could be cheaper and the wifi better but overall a great stay!

Staff, location and facilities were great. Only negatives were cannot bring food/drink into the hostel and the water/kebabs there are more expensive than just around the corner which is unhelpful for packbackers' on a budget. Music in the rooftop bar was also absurdly loud which look away from the atmosphere a little. But overall would recommend staying here

This hostel was pretty good. I had been hoping for more of a social hostel, where it would be easy to meet other travellers. I'm not sure if it just wasn't busy when I was staying or if people just weren't around, but it was very difficult to meet people. The amenities are great, free breakfast, wifi, lockers, even curtains around the beds. The rooftop is a great hangout spot with a beautiful view, and one night the staff even arranged for a bellydancer to come and dance which was cool.

Enjoyed everyday we stayed. Staff was super awesome and made you feel right at home. Terrace bar at night was the best way too cool off after a long day. 10/10 wouldn't consider any other hostels. Thank you so much. I dont think there could possibly be a hostel better than this one.

Great place for city tours. A cozy place to stay in Istanbul. If you are looking for party hostel then this is not your place, but if you want a comfy bed and friendly vibe you should stay here. Close to Blue Mosque.

The staff are great, and I was able to meet a lot of great people. Though it isn't the newest hostel, it is still nice and has a lot of character! Location is great as well. I miss Bahaus already!
