Our stay at Shoe String was great. We arrived late, so there was initial confusion as the manager was not on duty when our bus came in at 11pm, but things were organized immediately. The room was very cute with a great tiled bathroom. It was so unique to stay in a cave like room and you could tell Shoe... More

My 8 year old daughter and I stayed here with my Turkish in-laws for 4 days in August 2013. The pictures you see on the website are exactly how the rooms and the hotel look (no touch ups that I could see). All the contact that I had with the hotel prior to arriving was fantastic, they answered emails promptly... More

The Shoe String Cage house gives you rooms which are actually built into the bedrock of a hill. Its extremely cool and the hotel is a great experience. The staff is helpful and arranges for tours/ motorbkes and gives good guidance on nearby treks. Food is slightly overpriced but well cooked. The hotel arranges for pick up from the bus... More

Warm cave rooms during some really cold 'cappadocian' winter nights, warm shower, more than satisfying breakfast and a warm staff makes the stay in Shoestring Cave House a first choice even in wintertime. Suleyman and his colleagues make sure that you make the best out of your days spent in this part of Turkey. So take their advice, cause most... More

Staying at Shoestring Cave was the best part of my trip through Beautiful Turkey. The view from the roof top terrasse is breathtaking and my cave room no 201 was very cozy and kept warm during the winter nights. But most of all, the easy going and friendly staff gives a new meaning to hospitality. To Oktay, special thanks for... More

I stayed one night at the shoestring, and it was plenty enough. The dorm beds almost all have broken/bent bars, ensuring a saggy mattress. Only a few shelves if you're lucky to get them in the dorm room, no towels given. The common room revolves around a giant screen TV and a bar; very un-atmospheric compared to places with a... More
