Great staff. The communal facilities are clean and I highly recommend this place to solo travelers. Ali helped me and a few others get around Istanbul. He's a fantastic member of the excellent staff.
Good Atmosphere, cool staff, Kiwi is adorable ,Good location (really central and close to everything ) ., best hostel I have done during my all trop in Turkey.
Loved to be here! The front desk guys were really helpful and kind. Highly recommended!
This place rocks! Great staff, amazing rooftop terrace, great guests.. Can't say enough nice things about this hostel.
I was able to check into the dorm early which was good but the place was very untidy. There was no kitchen to cook your own food. The rooftop bar was great and the hostel provided a nice breakfast. However, the BBQ which was an additional cost was too expensive. I also tried to book a Gallipoli your which was priced 25€ more than going through the travel agent up the road.
I had such a great stay at Bahaus! I happily spent all of my nights drinking up in the terrace bar with the staff, Dusty, Kiwi and Laura. I managed to explore the city but was just as happy playing drinking games at home. The bar crawl Laura and Kiwi took us on had a great atmosphere and was definitely unforgettable. See you soon guys!!
My 2nd stay here, and well it's safe to say I hope to be back again! A great hostel, from the location to the events to the staff. The bar staff Kiwi and Laura run an epic bar crawl (at least from what I can remember) and the BBQs, the walking tours and Island tours are not to be missed, even just hanging with other guests and the staff in the bar means you're in for a fun time. The bar really has a great atmosphere, and Ahmet and the team cook some incredible food up there, thanks again guys :)
There isn't much to say about Bahaus that hasn't already been said, staying here means that your time in Istanbul is already planned for you with all of their fun events. From crazy nights in the terrace bar, to the insightful walking tours to BBQing and getting drunk on the beach (they have it all!) On top of ALL this upon arriving the staff welcome you to the family and couldn't be more helpful. A special thanks to Kiwi, drinking jenga is awesome and cheers to Dusty and Laura for a great stay!
Definitely the best hostel I've stayed so far! The breakfast was excellent, the 14-bed dorm is incredibly spacious, and bathrooms were very clean, and the staff was great - special thanks to Dusty, who went above and beyond to help me out on my activities in Turkey, as well as with great tips to get around Istanbul! Cheers!
My stay at Bahaus was a lot of fun, everything was great and I really appreciated all the little things; the curtains around the beds, the open book shelf in the lobby, the delicious homemade food at the rooftop bar and the huge effort that the staff put in to ensure everyone had fun and made the most of their trip. Emre and Ali the reception guys were always so helpful and friendly and the bar staff Dusty, Laura, Kiwi and Ahmet made sure the bar was always a blast, thanks for the laughs guys!
As strangers to this foreign land, my friend and I were warmly welcomed by the goofballs that make up the staff. Our first day was the perfect island hopping, beach bbqing, nature walking intro to Turkey, and it was perfectly put on by Bahaus. The beds were comfy as can be, the breakfasts delicious and with a beautiful view, the location was primo for walking to any of the sites, and the rooftop bar was perfect for some beer drinking and hookah smoking with all our lovely fellow travelers. 10/10

Excellent hostel! The staff is great, they really help to make your stay better. The patio common area/bar is a great place to hang out and helps to create a social hostel. The free breakfast is good. I also liked that they have curtains around the beds. The shower is the best I've had at any hostel.
Was one of the best hostels I´ve been so far! Rooms have A/C and lockers inside. Enough badrooms availabel on each floor. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar is mindblowing and always good for a nice party. The breakfast is from 7am-9.30am.....could be extended a hour. I would defintely recommend the Bahaus!
Bahaus Hostel was amazing! I enjoyed my stay so much I was actually upset when leaving. We had a great night out on the Bar Crawl, definitely an unforgettable experience in Istanbul. Dusty is always lively and Kiwi was so great in the bar with their drinking games. Great group of people. I miss you guys already, Jess
I really enjoyed my stay, it was good value for money, a clean, relaxed and friendly environment. The staff made me feel welcome and were very helpful, providing activities and day trips, such as the walking tour, BBQ and Princes Islands. As a female travelling alone, I have to say a special thanks to Kiwi who made me feel part of the group with her awesome drinking games which created a great atmosphere, especially before the fantastic bar crawl. I had so much fun and I can't wait to go back!
Staying here made my time in Istanbul. The facilities were all okay and the beds alright, but the staff were fantastic. Laura, Rusty and Kiwi were entertaining and supremely kind and generous. Leaving Istanbul was like leave behind some great friends. Their knowledge of the city is excellent for food, sightseeing, and entertainment was always spot on, and their musical tastes are top notch. They helped create a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for everyone and I'd gladly recommend staying there

What a great place! So central, close to all the big tourist attractions in Sultanahmet, and a great atmosphere. The staff are really helpful, always willing to provide a stack of information on where to go, where to eat; especially Kiwi! Would definitely recommend a stay here!
Good experience here. Only major complaint was that the bed curtains smelt super musty and that the receptionist was quite rude and patronising when I trying to leave. All of the other staff were lovely though. Breakfasts, location and rooftop terrace were great!
One of the best hostels in the area for sure.
I stayed for one whole month and Alisher was always there to help me, his recommendations about Istanbul were brilliant and accurate, he answered patiently all my questions and he was fully interested in the culture of my country, which I totally appreciated. Also, the nice ladies that help with the breakfast every morning were always smiling and open to talk with me for improving my turkish while they were teaching me new words.
