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

Excellent location. Tasty and rich breakfast. Amazing views from the roof terrace. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Definitely recommend. Will stay there again.

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!

+ very friendly and helpful staff + clean rooms, beds and sanitary installations - Air condition didn't work - lousy lockers - some renovation on many things in the house should be done soon! Some times many things may make the impression to fallen apart...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Bauhaus Hostel. The staff were so helpful and friendly we just had to book another night with them. The location couldn't be better for visiting the major sights of Istanbul.

The dorms are very well set up with aircon, a socket by every bed and curtains around the bed. Location is great and the roof top terrace has great views and was good to meet other travellers.

Great location in city center. Staff not very helpful, however, with desk person often outside smoking. Excessive charge for towel rental. Loud music until late.

Overall a really good hostel with a good atmosphere. They have a really nice rooftop terrace where it's easy to meet other travellers, a room with computers with Internet access, nice and clean room, they organize pubcrawls etc. The only negative thing was that one of the staff members too really pushy to sell us a boat trip and suggest restaurants, which I assume he does to make money himself.

A bit rough around the edges (room was a bit smelly and the window wouldn't close properly) but great location near to the blue mosque, great staff, and a great roof top bar with a view of the bosphorus, where you can meet other travellers. Also a good breakfast included.

Door has codes. The place was nice though obviously older. The drain in one of the showers on my floor was clogged. Breakfast was nice and they had a lot of activities for guests and it seemed like a nice place to meet people. Had an airport shuttle (to the airport) though didn't use it.

The staff here was really great. They were very friendly and had great recommendations about Istanbul. The room and facilities were great but I think it's the friendliness of the staff that really made the stay for me. One thing I might change is the hours of the breakfast. I think that breakfast should be until at least 10 AM. This is just a half hour difference but I think it makes a whole world of difference for tired travelers. I would also add a water cooler in the hostel.

It's very near the city center (hagia sofia and blue mosque) and has good tram connections. People are nice and make you feel welcome. Bathroom is very clean. Rooms and breakfast are ok.

Stayed there for two nights in a twin private with shared bathroom. Room was great as well as the bathroom. All the staff were very friendly and accommodating and ensured that we had a great stay. The rooftop patio was great to meet people and hang out. Would definitely go back if I travelled back to Istanbul.

Great place. Location is amazing. Dorm is very good with reading lights and privacy curtains. Only annoying thing is the very loud beeping from the keypad as people enter. Staff are great and breakfast is good.

Great hostel to stay at. The staff is very friendly and informative. They also organize pub crawls, belly dancers and hookah, and day trips to the prince islands. There are a lot of solo travelers so the atmosphere really just depends on the crowd there. There is a rooftop lounge with nightly activities and free breakfast. I'd recommend this place
