Bahaus was fantastic! The staff were great we went on an amazing walking tour led by a member of staff that was completely free. The location was perfect and we enjoyed hanging out on the rooftop bar with the staff and other guests.

This part of old Istanbul (Sultanahmet) is just overflowing with charm. You're away from all the bustle and there was no one soliciting me to buy carpets or trinkets (which sadly happens everywhere around the tourist venues). The highlight of the place is the rooftop terrace. The views of the Bosporus are perfect. Going up there in the morning for breakfast -- wow. Also, the BREAKFAST! Best I've ever had. The dorms and bathroom were more than adequate. The staff were also very friendly.

The location is great - 5 mins walk to Hagia Sophia, mid-Sultanahmet, cafes and restaurants within 1 min walk. Staff friendly, helpful and speaking a good English. Rooms are small and not very modern, some equipment rusty/old. Shower not very clean. The hostel has a wonderful terrace where breakfast (included) is served and where you can have some beers in the evening.

I enjoyed my stay at the Bauhaus Hostel very much. The location is simply perfect to discover the old part of Istanbul. Also the staff was so kind+helpful. The beds were very comfy and liked the idea with the curtains. That helps getting a little more privacy in dorms. Unfortunately our shower was broken. In our dorm (second floor) was hard to fall asleep due to the music in the rooftop. All in all was a good stay. I reccommend this hostel for people who are on a tight budget and enjoy party. :)

Only a one night transit stop over in Istanbul. I did stay at this hostel for a longer period two years ago. The roof top common area has been changed significantly and the space is much better used. The breakfast is one of the best I've had at any hostel, anywhere in the world. The dorm beds all have lights and curtains for privacy, which is great and not all that common. Very close to all main tourist attractions at Sultanahmet. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 4 nights. The location is perfect - very close to the tram and metro lines and the main sights. Factor in the genuinely friendly staff and reasonable price and you've got a really good hostel. The beer in the hostel bar was a little expensive but I don't that's unusual at hostels - plus they weren't actually forcing it down my throat. Overall very good, I'll be staying here when I return to Istanbul.

We had an amazing time at Bahaus. The place has an amazing atmosphere and everyone who works there are super nice. The walking tour is a must to see Istanbul at a different level. We definitely stay there again.
