Hostel was in a great location, right by the Blue Mosque, and was closeby to other tourist attractions. The staff was very helpful, as they provided us with a map and also gave us a 10 minute talk about where to go and what sites to see during our limited time. Washtooms and showers were very clean, and rooftop bar was a great atmosphere.

Great, fun place to stay. Location is a few minute walk from the Blue Mosque and many restaurants. Nice rooftop bar. Staff were friendly and knew their city well. Wi-Fi worked and was free. The beds have curtains for extra privacy and large lockers. No laundry facilities and kitchen.

This was an amazing place to stay! In the heart of the city. Its great for those who like to party/enjoy nights out but it is not crazy loud of out of control either.

The staff were incredibly helpful, location is good if you want to be on the European side of Istanbul (European side is the tourist side, Asian side has more atmosphere, young people, bars, cafes etc.) Also great beds. Have been backpacking for months and the mattress was amazing.

We really enjoyed our stay here, the hostel has a really cool vibe and is well situated in the old town of Istanbul. The manager was really nice and helpful. Breakfast was in the traditional turkish style which we thought was really cool. Our biggest issue was with the night watchman who was thoroughly useless, waking each of us up on multiple occasions at past 1 AM to ask if we were supposed to be there (of course we were!) while brining new people to the dorm. We'd definitely stay here again.

Bahaus hostel is located extremely close to the blue mosque, so is in the perfect place if you want to go around and see the city. The personal is very nice and kind, they will try to help you as much as they can! We had dinner once at the hotel and it was very cheap and good! We suggest it very much.

Great Hostel, really wonderful location. The front desk guy had great suggestions of where to eat, visit etc. One night we had a pubcrawl which was a lot of fun. It wasn't the most secure hostel I have been to, but with that, I felt no worries of anything happening to my stuff. Great amenities in the room, except that wifi didn't reach into the all girl room all the way. Had to stand by door. But would definitely recommend and stay again!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in... . Had problems with missing luggage from the airline I flew with, the hostel sorted it all and my bags were delivered a few days later. Excellent.

This is one the best hostels I've ever stayed in. It's very well located and you can get to all the major attractions either on foot or by using the tram line that is nearby. The hostel is very clean, and the staff are very helpful. If you can find Cinar at the reception, he will answer all your questions about the city, and his tips are invaluable! The bar at the rooftop has a stunning view of the Marmara sea, and having breakfast up there is something you will never forget.

This is a hostel for the under 30s. There is a bar on the top and a common room (as in 3 couches) at reception. I was not allowed to sit here with the light on or to speak to the other 2 people there after 11 as there are hostel staff sleeping next to the common room. This is despite the fact I could hear the music from three floors up!! Hostel is good for exploring historic quarter but is over 2 miles (3km) from Istanbul nightlife. Wouldn't stay again because of age and location.

The hostel was in a fantastic location and the staff were very helpful in providing recommendations. However, the bathroom wasn't very clean although the shower was hot and powerful.
