My sister and I stayed in a private room at this hostel, so I can't speak to the shared dorm facilities. The room was simple and clean. The staff was attentive, always willing to help their guests by booking tours and suggesting restaurants. The breakfast was amazing every day with home made jam and Turkish tea. The common area is...

I stayed here with a group of 6 friends for 3 days in June. We had an awesome time! The hostel is about average as far as facilities go, the bathrooms could use some updating. What really makes this is the staff - they were all so helpful and friendly! Dennis told us about a great place to eat, Taven... More

The hostel was in a great location, close to everywhere we needed to go. Deniz was great and he carried our bags around for us :) the room in the hostel was better than the apartment, which wasn't very clean, the sink was broken which created water on the toilet floor, could use with some renovations. Overall, we had a... More

World House Hostel has a perfect location and a reasonable price. It is close to many restaurant and bars and has very friendly staff. The building is bit noisy, rooms not very clean, but still good for a hostel. Breakfast is included which is a plus, but very basic. The beds however, are very hard.

As backpackers, World House was a perfect choice. We stayed in one of the dorms and met some great people from all over the world. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was delicious (and also included which is even more delicious). The location is perfect and the staff were very helpful. Definitely would recommend!

To be fair, I was here two years ago with my mom on a trip to Greece and Turkey. I have since traveled to Croatia, Austria, France, Spain, etc. This hostel still stands out in my mind as the absolute best I've ever stayed in. It wasn't full of excessive extras but was simply run well and full of interesting... More
