Bahaus Istanbul is a fine example of a ''home away from home,'' located in Sultanahmet, in the centre of historic Istanbul on a quiet street. Within a few minutes walk of all major tourist attractions (Topkapi Palace, the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia) and near bus, tram and train links.
As a youth hostel, we may not have the luxuries of a hotel (excluding Bahaus Resort Dalyan), but we will do our best to give you a true hostel experience.
THIS IS IMPORTANT: If you are not a true hosteler or backpacker than Bahaus is not the place for you.
