Awesome hostel, great vibe, amazing staff. Just a short walk to the blue mosque and Hagia Sofia, don't stay anywhere else when coming to Istanbul. Little things: the beds could use a small shelf and the turtles downstairs look like they could use an upgrade to their home.

Awesome staff super friendly. Went above and beyond for any questions asked about activities. Cool rooftop bar and a nice breakfast.

Had a great time there. Staff was great and most of what you want to see is walkable. Heading to the bars requires a taxi, but they can help you out with it, and its only about 17TL / $8USD. Roof top bar is great.

I came to this hostel as a stranger and I left as a friend. Çinar, Mustafa, Ali, Laura, Emre, Tuga, you are all amazing! Thank you for making my stay so wonderful.

I really recommend this hostel. The staff were absolutely amazing, I was sick at the time and they were so friendly and caring. They also have a wealth of knowledge of istanbul and can help you plan your visit :) It's also a really great place for solo travellers as the rooftop bar provides a great opportunity to meet fellow travellers. It's also really well situated near all the main tourist sites.

Firstly I must say this hostel is very clean and has many lovely details; eg the curtains, they provide all the privacy you need. Secondly there are always great recommendations to avoid the tourist traps. Thirdly I want to include the good breakfast and great Kebabs, they're better than anywhere else in the city. Also I would like to give a special shoutout to Mustafa&Laura. They're pub crawl was incredibly fun, as if 2 friends were leading us to all their favourite places. A great party! Danke

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Had a good knowledge of the area and were always prepared to make the extra effort if it be calling a place and making a booking or drawing a map for you to help you find a place. Mustafa and Lauren were awesome in the bar preparing the shisha or just hanging out. The place has good character and is really easy to meet lots of other travellers.

Great Hostel for young solo travelers, the best is the breakfast from the rooftop with an amazing view, at night the bar at the rooftop is also the best place to meet new people and the staff is super helpful. Great place to stay if what you're looking for is a comfy place to sleep and young people to share with.

Awesome to have a coffee machine accessible for breakfast. Juices, jams and jellies but.... I think you should consider replacing the Black and Green Olives on the breakfast menu. I suggest sliced oranges, or just leave them out and improve the "meat" and "cheese" Some chairs in the terrace area need to be replaced as well. Falling to pieces and they might hurt someone. The Wifi is seriously slow, perhaps because the network is overcrowded. The staff is friendly and great with suggestions

I had a great stay at Bahaus Hostel, I don't really have any complaints! The location was perfect, the staff was extremely friendly and everything was super clean and well kept. I stayed in a 14 bed dorm but it didn't even feel like there were that many people there. There were certains around every bunk bed and three ensuites too. I was very pleased with what I got for the money I paid and if I'm ever in istanbul again, I will definitely be staying there!

Best hostel ever!!! The rooms are just perfect, a lot of space, big lockers, very clean and two toilets inside the room (if your reservation is ensuite). Amazing location, less the 5 minutes to the main attractions! And staff is super friendly and extremely helpful!! I cannot imagine a better place to stay if you are visiting Istanbul! Hope to come back as soon as possible! Thanks for everything guys!

Staff are very helpful and kind! Would have liked to see more involvement in evening activities as well as organising trips etc during the day for guests to join onto. Breakfast was lovely! And rooftop has perfect view!
