The hostel is highly rated because of the experience or that they request guests to do so. It is an OK place with clean beds but in old rooms with dusty furniture. Bathrooms are hygienic though we never used them for showers since we stayed for one night only. The terrace is cool but there are many hotels and hostels all over Istanbul with similar or better views. The staff is particularly friendly and organises something special everyday - one day it could be free food and another it could be a free belly dance.
My sense is that the rating reflects the friendliness of the staff and that they try to make the terrace fun. However, for the price you can find rooms that are five times better in many of the hotels in the same street. Stay here for a night if you have to and then search for rooms in the same street (which is awesome and is open till 3-4 am) or in Taksim (pricey). You can always go to Bahaus terrace even if you are not a guest.
