We stayed at Lale Hostel in early December and had all our meals at Charlie's Place (same owner). Room has a great view of the lake, but unfortunately both of us found the beds not so comfortable. However this was more than offset by the incredibly friendly welcome we received from the owners and Carol the resident Englishwoman who was... More

Egirdir was a "last minute" stop during my trip to Turkey, somehow unattended. But Lale has been a nice surprise. I was alone, in the hostel style room. It looked narrow (12 beds), but we were just 3 people, so comfortable. Nice view on the lake but, expecially, nice common area at Charlie's. Amazing breakfast (included in the price) and... More

The room was far too expensive during sn almost off season period. The accommodation was very basic and should have cost half the price. That said, the staff are wonderful over at sister pension Charlys pension where evening meals are also provided. So this is not a personal attack.I'm just critical of the value for money aspect.

It had been a couple of months since we met on internet and we had decided to meet face to face. I was already living in Egirdir and I needed to make a good choice...shortly,... More

I found Lale pension through browsing on the internet. Already before I set out I had a good feeling about the place. The owner of the pension was there to pick me up from the bus station even if the bus, by my calculation, was an hour late and I had - stupidly - forgotten to write down the numer... More

Booked this place after reading other reviews and after staying there I could not believe it was the same place. Room is spartan and basic, washroom is old, tired and not clean, also bugs galore. Overall the whole place is the complete opposite of cosy. Looks more like a hospital room. Saw pictures of their other property (the new one... More

Lale Hostel was very clean and comfortable with a beautiful view. The owner, Ibrahim, was incredibly helpful and assisted with planning my two days on the St Paul trail and booking an otogar ticket to Goreme. Baggage storage facilities were also provided for when I was trekking. The common area was filled with friendly and interesting people, and breakfast and... More

The 3 pensions Charly, Lale and Fulya, are actually operated by the same person (Ibrahım) and in the offseason there is only one reception and one restaurant at Charly's. You can get a room at any of the 3 pensıons dependıng on availability, your choice of room and the price. Rooms at Lale are confortable and warm, with a view... More
