In total, 210 people have been reached. The value for Cronbach’s alpha in the survey has been measured as 0.797. In the analysis of research data regarding the statistical method, factor analysis, regression and correlation have been used as analysis methods. As a result of the research done on factors affecting the perception of hygiene aimed at Turkish hamams, the elements such as the sensitivity of hamam personnel on hygiene, the fulfilment in general principles of hamam, and the physical competence of hamam have been identified as the three significant factors by the tourists involved in the survey.
