“Ok kinda place”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Clean well sized room. Walls are paper thin and noise is a big problem. If you cant rest then what's the point right?. 3 day stay and our private en suite room wasn't even cleaned once. I would honestly skip this place and go with a hotel. Not worth the money.

Bada Bing hostel was an excellent choice for me: it is very well located (basically near of everything),the price is good and so it is the atmosphere. The hosts are really cool, they do their best to make you feel comfortable and they always offer you the help you need to go to the places you want to. I definitely recommend Bada Bing Hostel: good people, good food, good drinks, good beds, good everything. Rafa from Mexico.

Great place, very friendly staff, convenient location in modern Istanbul, near Galata, Karaköy, Beyoğlu, Taksim, Istiklal caddesi, etc. It can be a bit noisy when there are parties on the rooftop, but if there are beds available at the lower floor, the staff may move your bed assignment to a more quiet room, more distant from the party ;-) I would definitely recommand this hostel to anyone looking for a place to stay in Istanbul.

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!
