Great to find a hostel with breakfast after so long without. Staff are great. Laura and Mustafa are very helpful and friendly
I stayed at bahaus one week and loved it!! Extended my stay over and over again. You guys are awesome!! Emre, Ali, Cinar - thanks for tons of advices and answers to my manymany questions (where to go, to get food, what to avoid) :) - LAURA ♡♡ Thanks for the nice conversations, tips - and your awesome taste in music you shared with us!! I shazamed every song you played i did not know :D hope to stay in touch and see you again. Whenever I am in istanbul i will stay at bahaus again, for sure!
Liked: The location is perfect, the atmosphere was amazing up on the terrace and Shisha was free! It was also easy to meet people. Bar crawl was good fun. Disliked: Beer is the same price as in a club (10 Lira!) and you are not allowed to bring any alcohol or food into the hostel which is very strange. In fact we were threatened to be kicked out after one of the staff members found us drinking in our room. Bar crawl is overpriced, you pay 20 lira for transport and a "free" (15% alc?) shot
The Good: Hot showers with strong pressure Electrical outlets and personal lights at every bed Curtains for every bunk Great staff Bar open 'til 2am with lots of space and great view Superb location The Bad: Wifi connection was weak many times Bathrooms were always out of paper towels or soap Drinks were overpriced (same as what you'd pay in a normal bar - c'mon guys, it's a hostel) Breakfast over by 9:30 (pretty early given this is very much a party hostel)
Had a great time here with a few mates for my bucks week. on arrival our 4 bed private with ensuite had a malfunctioning door so staff worked hard to fix it but with no luck they bumped us up to a 12 bed with ensuite and we had that to ourselves instead so that was great. it was winter so the great rooftop bar and hostel wasn't pumping but we got a good crew together on the friday night and the barmaid took us all out on the town for an awesome pub crawl.
I really like that place. It was a confortable Place where to enjoy, relax, share, have fun and be happy with the hotel's personal or the other travellers. All the workers there are great, really happy people, with a Lot Sense of humor and lovely from the First moment as kindly and helpfull. The localization is amazing, just behind the Blue Mosque (One minute). Beautifull place, with the small Living room with TV or terrace with shisha as meeting Point. The rooms, amazing! Inma Sánchez

Quite a nice hostel in Sultanahmet which meant that all the major tourist sites were 5-10 mins away. Unfortunate it means that you'd have to walk further to get decent food because the nearby locations are very touristy. The hostel staff were amicable and were willing to help if you'd approach them about it. Otherwise they'd generally leave you to your own devices. Facilities were nice, with a nice hot shower and private storage space. Open roof to terrace with a view is also a bonus.
A really nice hostel, wonderfully located within walking distance of many of the main sites. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and will give you lots of advice and assistance regarding what to see and do in Istanbul. A very homely place to stay in a delightful city. highly recommended.
Hostel was top notch- one of the best thıs trıp. Great staff- Laura at the bar was great. Cant recommend thıs hostel hıghly enough
Great hostel - the curtains in the big dorm are a great idea. Common area is good and bathrooms are always clean. But the highlight would be the staff - they are super friendly and helpful. In particular, Ali who gave great local restaurant suggestions and helped out with my logistics!
