Volkan (literally means volcano!!) and Jaime (American) are wonderful. They will help you with everything you need on your trip to Istanbul and will make you feel completely at home. They know the city like the back of their hand, but they also really understand other cultures and can help you make that link. Everything is brand new and clean too!

My boyfriend and I took a chance and booked at this budget-friendly hostel. It's in a great location (right between Sultanhamet and Taksim) so it's easy to walk to all the major sites without staying in a crowded/ expensive/ tourist area. The hostel is brand new - everything is clean and well thought-out... secure and soundproof rooms with new beds and linen. Volkan, the owner is genuinely hospitable. The breakfast is great. if you want good value for money & to avoid the tourist traps.. I highly recommend Bada Bing.

Was in Istanbul for several days. Hate dragging all my stuff with me every time I go out just to be safe.. No worries at Bada Bing -- it's really secure -- big steel door -- and I loved the lock boxes in the rooms.

Room Tip: The whole place is clean and beautiful!
