Old and Charming!
“I went today (an October Saturday at 5pm) for my first time. I paid 40TRL for entrance and 1TRL for a bottle of water. Very friendly staff - there was a very cute very hairy guy in the entrance area, he showed me to my room and overall was very sweet. He also gave me towels at the end and dried me off.
The hamam is laid out in several small rooms. A cool room, a warmer room, and a very large hot room each with buckets to dump cool water on yourself. There is a dark dry sauna as well. Yes the hamam is old, but Istanbul is an ancient city and I quite liked the charm of the place including the sky lights. I did not get a massage or scrub, but the masseuse was quite charming and popular. I could see him working on men as I passed by his room - it all looked very nice and legit.
The guys - there were about 30 guys, most of them extremely attractive, hairy, Turkish men. I expected the guys to be more bearish (based on the reviews) and while there were some, most were just as described above. There was fun to be had, but always in a corner or in a dark place. It was all quite discreet and quiet but I found that to be quite and sexy.
Overall, I quite liked this hamam. Being an American bear, I felt quite comfortable. I loved the variety of guys (from six packs to bellies, from trimmed to hairy). It would be a fun place to come with a friend.“
