This hostel is horrible. It isn't just dirty it is filthy. The common room is on the 3rd floor and the guys who work here just sit around smoking. No one speaks English. The first room they showed me smelled so strongly of mold I couldn't walk in. I ended up with a 3 bed-dorm room to myself. The beds... More

Our private twin room was extremely small and the private bathroom while it looked like it had been recently renovated, had no shower door so water went all over the bathroom floor. Shower water never got fully warm and smelled of sulphur. Staff were friendly. View from the top was nice although the upper common room was dirty. Wifi only... More

We spent 2 x 2 nights at this place in November as we stayed in Fethiye, then walked part of the Lycian way and came back to Fethiye so had booked this place in advance so we had somewhere to leave part of our baggage for the few days we were gone. The first 2 nights we got a room... More

Have just spent 3 days at this AWFUL place. Personally think it should be closed down! The hotel is grim to say the least, and the owner/staff not much better. We booked back in January for 4 nights, on arrival we were told sorry but you can only have your sea view room for 3 nights, we have booked it... More

I left this place having mixed thoughts of the place. Sure it wasn't too expensive, but the hosts gave me the impression that they were very mercenary. Everything seems to be charged separately. The room i had was small and had only a small standing fan which made it pretty uncomfortable to sleep at night. The roof top terrace was... More

Definitely I won't recommend it to other travellers. There r only 3 good things about it: location (close to city center), nice view from the balcony to the sea, cheap price. Other things were not good, and we saw it from the very beginning. 1. First of all, although we booked double room in advance, they could give us only... More

Mr. Soner is always really welcoming. I came here twice since the terrace has a wonderful seaview, drinks and food are tasty and cheap and the hostel is in the downtown. Now we are on the terrace enjoying nice blues music with a glass of turkish tea chatting with other backpackers in the hostel. Nice time and Strongly recommended!

This is by far the worst hostel/hotel experience I had in Turkey and I def. do not advise you to go there. I read a few of the other reviews left by travelers and I saw that this kind of things had happened to other people as well (just like me, directly by the owner). So I would seriously just... More

Nice bathroom, no aircon in my room but cool enough with the fan. Roof top terrace area where breakfast is served and reception is located is very hot. Wifi was good but didn't work in the rooms so had to sit in the hot terrace.

We were not expecting a greal deal for the price but as we only needed a bed for one night we decided to book there. As it turns out we were delighted and will return later in the year. The position was perfect for us as it is close to the marina and we were joining a boat there the... More
