Bahaus Guesthouse
Ranked #29 of 1,242 Speciality Lodging in Istanbul
Reviewed 11 June 2014

Fantastic, probably one of the best hostels in Europe. 14 bed dorm room was brilliant - clean, big and w/ a p.point, reading light and privacy curtain with every bunk! Excellent bar/common room with awesome views over the city and the free events/food were great (pub crawl, movie night, soup)! Staff acted as if you were long lost friends, were extremely helpful, funny and would even party with you/play cards in the evenings. Free breakfast was EXCELLENT! You must stay here when visiting Istanbul.

3 of my girfriends and I went to Istanbul for a 5 day vaca and we had the best time, and we have Bahaus Guesthouse to thank! The front desk people were amazing and were always willing to help you out. The hostel was very clean and the beds were very well kept. The complimentary breakfast was also amazing with cheeses, veggies, coffee, and more. Amaazing location (5 min walk to Hagia Sophia and Blue Mosque) I truly recommend this hostel to everyone! Tugi, Tony & Ali, we love you all! Thanks for everything!
Much love,
The Israeli Americans

I would recommend anyone coming for the first time to Istanbul to stay at this hostel in the Sultanahmet area. The staff was genuinely wonderful...friendly, patient, and fun! I was part of a group of 4 ladies and we were very happy with our stay here. The hostel is kept clean, noise was not an issue, breakfast was quite delicious, and we always felt safe. The hostel is very close to a number of of major attractions, and that's a big plus for a first-time traveler to Istanbul. I give this place 5 stars!

This place was a great time, and a great overall value. The location is magnificent, as you are close to all the main sites and near the shore. The owners are a fun time, and are always looking out for you to make sure you are alright. The terrace at the top is beautiful, and you can just relax without any qualms. Great place!

Its a tad on the expensive side for a hostel, but the location is good for most of the sites in the old city. There is a bar at the hostel so they won't let your bring your own booze in but it is a great place for meeting people and they cook good meals, (pricey but in line with the restaurants in the area). Bathrooms clean, rooms clean, (although my dorm did get very hot in morning when it caught the sun) Made lots of friends here and most of the staff are really friendly and helpful. I definitly enjoyed my stay here and was sad to leave.
BUT...
Other people may have experienced things differently and I'm aware that I'm saying this as a guy, but the owner/manager of this place can be a bit creepy towards women. Seemed to make a habit of getting touchy feely with female guests which may or may not be something you might want to be aware off. On the other hand if you quite fancy the idea of a Turkish man with a big moustache hitting on you then you should book this place straight away...

Please get your facts right before writing a review. We do not know who you are refering to since the owner has never had a moustache and never intends to. As the owner, I can honestly state this. We think if there had been any inappropriate behaviour, the girls would have complained- but nobody has done so. We wonder why you are writing such comments for them when these mystery girls haven't said anything themselves - perhaps it is a case of the girls prefering the moustached man to you! By the way, we don't have a Daniel G registered on our booking lists and will be querying the legitimacy of this review with Trip Advisor.

I was in and out of Istanbul over the period of a few weeks and had Bahaus as my base. The staff were amazingly friendly, other travellers were great and the vibe is awesome. It's impossible to not make friends here. It's a great place to chill out when you've been running around too much.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good.
