  • Young travelers should be savvier about what is value for money. After reading reviews about Bahaus, I expected a bit more. While Tony was definitely friendly, the tour agent he recommended my friend and I to were highly suspect. Because there is a word limit; in short, we were royally ripped off. The condescension the tour agent had for us was also a real treat. Also, the location and the Turkish touts found there leave much to be desired. To be fair, staying in the hostel was only OKAY.

  • I loved my stay at the hostel, especially the hospitality of Tugi and Tony. We really felt at home. This place is great value for the money, and it has an amazing bar on the roof top with a amazing view.

  • Upon arrival, the staff were very helpful in assisting me with my solo travel around Istanbul. They suggested MUST SEE and what to pass on, since I was there only for a short time. The rooms were clean and I always felt my belongings were safe. The breakfast was great and the terrace was lovely. Although the hostel was full, there was always a bathroom/shower available with hot water. I liked the hostel overall and I would highly recommend this hostel to other travelers!

  • Fantastic staff & a great location make this one of the better hostels in Istanbul. The staff are amazing & arrange nightly functions so you are guaranteed to meet new people & have a great time. One of the best restaurants in the area is also at the top of the street (Defne), where Victor & Aziz will show you hospitality of a level I am yet to find anywhere else in the world. I'll definitely be back for them & this hostel!

  • The location is very good, althought located in city centre, but still quite, of course,Weekend would be a bit noisy, which could be understood. All the staffs were very helpful, especially their tour advise. Even I stayed there during the time of protest, I did not have to worry personal safety.
