Well above my expectations! Staff is incredibly helpful and kind. They are a great source of information on anything you might ask. Breakfast is free and very generous. The rooftop has an amazing view and a great place to meet with fellow travelers. I met several interesting people there and had great time all over. Hostel is clean and dorms really cozy. Locationwise, it is just at the right spot. Overall this is one of the best hostels i ever stayed during my trips. Will definitely be back!

Excellent hostel. Top location for seeing the historical side of Istanbul. They organize pub crawls and hostel outings for those that want them and everyone's knowledgable on the city.

It was my first trip to Istanbul and i made a good choice. Staffs were all very friendly and helpful and easy to hang out with. Roof top bar has a great view and you can eat delicious kebab too. Also great place to meet other travellers.

This hostel was a fantastic place to stay. The location in Sultanahmet is great, and the rooms are spacious with much-appreciated A/C. The staff were always friendly, and really helpful with booking tours, airport shuttles, etc. The only thing I thought was strange was having a keypad entry to the rooms - but there are lockers, so it's still easy to keep your stuff safe if you have valuables.

It's a calmer hostel than what the description says. Travelling alone, it was abit tougher to meet people here. However, the hostel does set up activities whenever they can, which helps. The location is great, the view from the terrace is beautiful. The staff does whatever they can to make your stay fun. I

Great view from the rooftop bar, good breakfast buffet, excellent location! Staff were accommodating, but not the best at giving restaurant/things to do suggestions. If you are self reliant on knowing what to do/see/ eat in the area, this place is fine for you!

Great location, great staff, nice big dorm rooms and bath rooms are big and clean. Roof top terrace is awesome with a nice big tv to watch the World Cup and comfy cushions!

Staying at Bahaus was amazing. Very fun. I stayed in a dorm, which offered privacy in the form of curtains around your bed. A passcode to enter the dorm was useful, not having to search for keys. The bar and food was expensive compared to elsewhere but the staff made it very fun to stay in. I didn't have a good experience with the travel agent they recommended, he was quite rude. I would definitely stay here again.

It was a great location, really close to all the city's must-sees. It was clean, safe, and secure. There are activities every day to help build community. If you're traveling alone, it's easy to meet other people. The staff (especially Tugi) are really knowledgeable about the city. They help you find anything you need and help plan your time in the city. It's a fantastic hostel!

Staff was amazing! Very helpful, easy to communicate with, and FUN! Hostel organizes activities for guest every day of the week. The Saturday night pub crawl is a must. Roof top bar and lounge is a great place to relax, drink, and get to know your fellow travelers.

Great hostel overall, I really enjoyed my stay. The staff is helpful and friendly. Dorm rooms are in good condition and all the facilities were in working order. Nice rooftop bar with view. The only problem with the location is that it is right in the middle of a tourist trap, which makes it easy to navigate to the main attractions, but you need to take the tram to get to budget eateries.

The staff is amazing. The rooftop bar and terrace are the place you will meet friends to visit the Blue Mosque with. The 14 bed dorm is very nice, the AC makes it nice and cool, and the curtains at each bed gives you privacy. The bathrooms are great, clean and modern. The atmosphere of the whole place is so good, I even stayed in the hostel one day just because I wanted to relax a bit. The only thing I would love would be a kitchen. The food and drinks at the bar are a little expensive.

Best hostel stay I could imagine!! Zero complaints - I would stay here again in a heartbeat. I wish all hostel experiences could be just like this one. Very clean, excellent facilities. Awesome, friendly, social atmosphere on the rooftop terrace. They organize a wide range of activities and it's so easy to meet people even when traveling alone. But the best part was the staff - they quickly feel like friends you've known for forever. They really care and offer incredible advice. Stay here!!!

To be honest this is one of the best hostels I have stayed in. Great atmosphere, great staff. Tuguy, Laura, Cinar and Mustafa are fantastic.
