He also gives advice for places to visit, nice local restaurants to eat and etc. We have stayed once in the dorm with 8 friends, which has a beautiful terrace and once in a private room as a couple. Both were... More

Well, we stayed there twice and we'll still recommend it to friends. We stayed once as a group of 9 people in the dorm and in the last visit as a couple. Both times was equally rewarding. Compared to the extremely cheap price, the combination of the good location and friendly staff allows you to make the most out of... More

The staff were great very helpful. This hotel is in a good location from the blue mosque and the sea. The breakfast was ok. The staff are able to do your washing for u at a small cost and organise transport to and from the airport.

The staff couldn't be nicer. The rooms are clean and the dorm is a decent size. They have locked storage available. They watch the door 24 hours, so safety isn't an issue. There's a terrace attached to the dorm, which has a nice ocean view. Netherlands location also made it easy to walk everywhere. They are also very willing to... More

The location is very comfortable and near to the most touristic attraction of the city. The rooms are very simple and small. The bathroom is not adequate, very old and with poor furniture. There is no terrace because the one that was available is now allocated as additional room. The breakfast consists in some bread, 1 egg, butter and jam... More

Ilker guesthouse is a lovely place. We were welcomed by warm hospitality from Ilker and his staff.

Breakfast here is delicious and substantial and his staff members are very sweet and lovely to talk to over a cup of tea. Perhaps the hostel... More
