This is what was really bad: We had a reservation for a twin room but got a room that had twin bed but was put together to form a queen. No big deal to make it what we wanted right? Apparently not for the lady there.. She was very reluctant to do it and only agreed to do so after asking us four times and twice on different occasions if we really needed the beds separated.
Hostel Bahaus was awesome. Very good location for all the sightseeing in Sultanahmet. Friendly staff, always helpful, all of them speak English and they're always there when you need them. Rooms and toilets/showers are clean. The rooftop bar is a gem.
The hostel itself is pretty nice for HK. But the chongking mansion is a special place. Don't go there if you suffer in crowded or narrow spaces. Rooms are really small. 4 bed room does barely fit for two. Staff is really nice and helpful. Very clean.
If there were lockers, this hostel would be perfect.
Really nice place in the tourist area near tiananmen square. friendly staff, clean rooms, great atmosphere. would definitely stay there again.
