I stayed at this hostel twice while I was in Turkey and both stays were excellent. The staff were so friendly and helpful which is so reassuring when you're a solo female traveler. The location is fantastic, a little hidden from the main road but in a very safe area. Very close to major attractions. The rooms were spacious and... More

The guy at the reception stored our bags and gave us the option to enjoy that morning's breakfast on their rooftop terrace already, for only a few extra lira.
