I'd definitely recommend this place to those travelling on a budget. The location is great - central, but not on the main street. The staff are very friendly and speak English very well, and they're happy to recommend and/or organise activities in the area. The rooms aren't the greatest - clean, but the bathrooms aren't in the best condition, and... More

Ufuk pension is totally worth staying just for the staff. It is right at the heart of goreme - which is a compact village anyway. The highlight of our trip was how Orhan helped us plan our whole visit. He arranged for a car rental for a cheap price + arranged pickup from Kayseri airport + setup a very cheap... More

We arrived at 5am after a rough overnight bus and were invited into reception by a young guy working there. He was still sleeping but welcomed us in to get warm by the fire and have a hot cup of coffee as the hot-air balloons lit up the dark sky - it was amazing. Orhan arrived shortly after and cooked...

The price for a single was incrediblly reasonable considering the location of the pension, breakfast, free tea and coffee, free wi-fi, parking, spotless clean rooms with equally clean attached toilet and shower and with central gas heating. The manager speaks excelent English and will gladly organise an itinerary for your stay. Very suitable for the budget traveler.

There were many little disappointments that did not make our stay at Ufuk so pleasant. First, there was a horrible smell that came from the toilet. The staff was kind enough to find us a new room, but still there was some unpleasant smells there too. The rooms are average, pretty small without any cachet. Finally we had some trouble... More

Stayed here for three nights and it was very pleasant. The hotel is right in town and close to the rose and red valley as well as the goreme open air museum. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean but quite small. The bathroom was miniature. The cost was not that cheap compared to other spots... More

This is a very basic hotel at an excellent price. Its location is wonderful. Fatih also has a way to make you feel cared for, so I really did feel at home while I was there. There is nothing more bautiful than having breakfasts wiht the hot air balloons flying overhead.

Simple, humble but great little hostel. Faith is a brilliant host. He is always there to answer questions and offer local tips for pretty much anything the area has to offer. For the money you're not going to find anywhere better in the area.
