“THE Istanbul Hostel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

This is an excellent, clean, and affordable hostel with quality people working there. Perfect location - away from the noise but very close to both key historical areas and transport to all Istanbul has to offer. Most importantly, the staff are wonderful people. They always look after the guests like their own family. I have been here several times with friends and family, and I will come back.

Loved staying here. great value for money, especially with delish breakfast included. Great, helpful staff, who provide great services. sweet upperfloor lounge/restaurant, and the outdoor roof terrace is lovely when having breakfast in the morning sun or beers at night. The location is really good, you are not far from taksim square on the one hand and the bazar and old city on the other.

Very good location, friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms, clean showers, clean toilets. Free wifi. Cozy rooftop bar with terrace. Tasty breakfast included and freshly baked cakes available for a small price.

We had a great stay and on top of that it was cheap too!

badabing hostel is located right next to the harbour in a lovely neighborhood.The rooms are really nice.always clean and cheap with 10 euro per night.There is nothing to complain about. The stuff is extremly friendly .They will always try to help you and give you good tips for sight seeing etc.You can talk to them when ever you want because they all can speak english very well and the hostel is open 24hours.It was also fun to talk with them to share different point of views in culture.You will learn some turkish words and get to know turkey and istanbul from a personal point of view.There is no problem when you come really late back at home.if you want to relax you can drink a beer at the terrasse or enjoy a good breakfast in the sun. Its also possible to cook in the kitchen for example a fresh fish from the nearby market.from badabing its not far away to the galata quarter which is such a wonderful neighborhood with its tiny roads and houses.All in all it was great to stay here and we would always come back.peace the 104boys from berlin
