Incredibly cheap, central, warm (when it was - 7 outside!), friendly, clean hostel! We had a double room with private bathroom, comfortable bed, clean bathroom, good central location. Given it came to a fiver a night, couldn't ask for better.

We got a private room with en suite bathroom, and it was nice enough, plenty of common space, roof terrace overlooking town, guy at the desk was helpful. Basic hostel, worth it for the price if you want to save on accomodation yet be right next to downtown

Okay, it was a bit far from everything, I mean like you have to walk for 10 to 15 minutes. We will never forget this place as we really had a bad time. Okay, service is okay but the place we had is terrible. I got this place for a cheap price but didn't expect it was that bad. I... More

It was our pleasure to stay at Ishtar. We had a small, clean and cosy room with windows (with shower and toilet) on the first floor. Not exellent, but a good value for money. The internet is available only on a reception on a second floor, but every time we get there we were offered tea. Akiko is very nice... More

If not because of friendly, honest, helpful and awesome Akiko-san, I would rate my experience with this hostel as poor. We stayed here for 3 nights, which are 2 nights in normal room and the other 1 night in the cave room. The normal room was very small and we had heater problem for 2 days. The double cave room...

This pension is beautiful. Staying in cave, magnificent experience! Receptionist Japanese woman is sweety and smiling :) The rooms are cleany, good. But wc and showers are so small and uncomfortable:( but also this pension is central. Then,from pension, going to Goreme centrium, goreme bazaar and Goreme open air museum and bus stations is so easy. Esra Tuzu

We were looking to spend the night in a cave hotel that wasn't very expensive and Isthar Cave Pansion was really everything we were searching for. It's a bit far from the town center of Goreme but it's got all the commodities you need, heater, comfortable beds, hot water and a delicious breakfast. The place is attended by a very... More

It is 2mins from goreme bus station, 20 from the panoramic view above pigeon valley which is amazing for sunrise and air balloons and Umit who helps run the place is a great host and good guy all round! The breakfast is nice, filling and healthy, and included in the price! Would happily spend a week here. The rooms are... More

i chose 3 person bedroom without bathroom and i have to use bathroom and toilet at the outside. it is really cold during December. but it still worth it of amount u pay. if u just come as bagpacker traveller and looking cheap place to stay, this is one is the best. 😊
