We were stuck in the hostel most of our stay because it snowed in Istanbul and the city wasn't really ready. This didn't make us sad for even a moment. The atmosphere was wonderful and the staff, willing to please. The hostel is quite basic in its facilities, but the friendly staff and the cozy rooftop bar more than make up for it. The new year party was super fun.

The staff at Bahaus is the most amazing one in the whole world! They helped us in everything! They recommended places to go, and even helped us with cancelling flights and finding the luggage of one of my friends that the air company lost. I am sad because I am leaving! I loved Istambul so much and I love the hostel. The staff and the guests are like a family.

The hostel is easily reachable with public transportation, the location is great, just a few hundred meters from the blue mosque, and it is clean and has a nice communal area/rooftop bar. The staff is AWESOME, always helpful and friendly. I've been there three times already and I'm gonna stay there again my next time in Istanbul.

Couldn't have been a better stay! Was a bit worried that there would be no one here since I was travelling over Christmas but it was amazing! The bar staff were awesome in making everyone feel welcome and was such a chill place to hang out! Roof top bar was a highlight! Will definitely come back one day!

Great place to hang out and meet everyone. Close to the sights. Great deals for travelers and very helpful staff. Plus a bitchin bar! Thanks for the great time. Laura, you never told me even one ingredient in the pseudo hazelnut shot (minus a star) but I got the shot and loved it (plus a star) lol. No but seriously, from one drink slinger to another, you gotta give me something! Please! Anthony Alazzaro@zagmail.gonzaga.ed

Cool hostel, clean, perfect location, lovely staff, fun events and atmosphere, what more do you want? Thank you to the reception staff Alim, Ahmet, Emre for being so patient and helpful to me, they offered lots of great Istanbul tips. And a shout out to the rooftop bar team, I was welcomed by Laura and Jr with the 'secret' shot, I already miss the jenga and all the games, thanks for always starting the party guys!

I had a great stay in Istanbul, which Bahaus was greatly responsible for. Now it's an amazing hostel, good beds, excellent showers, location etc however it's the staff that really stand out. A big thanks to Laura and Jr, serving up a lot of fun and some great food on the rooftop bar and also to Ahmet and Alim for helping with all my questions and for being so nice. STAY HERE

Impressively engaged hostel staff! Special props to Ahmet and Laura who started an impromptu pub crawl at 4 AM on my last night in Istanbul and made sure we were safe and back at the hostel after the festivities.

Amazing place in the city. Could spend days just walking around near the hostel and never get bored. Bar, food, and an amazing staff at the hostel rooftop patio. Planned outings and hostel activities are plenty and so much fun. Definitely coming back to Istanbul, and when I do, definitely staying at Bahaus again.

Originally I only booked 1 night at Bauhaus but ended up staying a week and still wasn't ready to leave. Why stay there? First, the awesome staff- Ahmed, Laura, Dusty, JR and everyone really made me feel like part of the family, they took us out to bars, organized dinners, games etc and were just all really welcoming. Also, the other travelers. I have stayed in a lot of hostels and this was one of my favorites socially and I made friends for life. Very intimate place. I already miss it!
