We were initially not blown away on arrival as we found the reception chap very lethargic and slow. The carpets up the stairs definately need replacing and some upgrading would be good. The views and location are excellent for the price and close to a 400 year old Hamam that was so great to visit. Rooms clean and breakfast was... More

I booked a dorm room online however on arrival was told there was no availability but I was welcome to stay on the roof terrace for free which I did. If you book you are not guaranteed a dorm room however they had lockers and were provided with a towel, sheets and shower facilities (only one). If you want a... More

I booked a room here a good 2 months in advance and when I rocked up they said they have no bed for me but I could sleep outside on the roof. After complaining they gave me a room but it is hands down the worst service I've ever experienced.

Worst service I've ever had to deal with. Frustrating and irritating. The whole stay was soul-destroying. They overbooked 5 times during our 2 night say so a good 6 people ended up sleeping in the breakfast area and myself and a friend, outside! For 20TL! Any problem you had was 'no problem' whether the manager understood you or not. Head... More

This place is an absolute sh**hole. Turkey has really impressed me with it's accommodation, except for here. The service in particular was terrible - it's peak season and the not one of the many people running it spoke one word of English. Most hotels / hostels can say a few words, at least. I was trying to communicate for a... More

Very conveniently located to the town centre of Fethiye. Nice, clean and bright rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast included into price. Would ideally suit groups and solo travellers. Strongly recommend.

We arrived late evening and was quite tired. This was good enough for a good sleep and breakfast. We could find better places to stay but pre booked this and did not have energy to worry. It is budget accommodation and for that reason this is adequate.

Spent one of my last nights in Turkey here at Ideal Pension. Great location and Sonny the owner was really welcoming and an awesome host. Facilities were great too. Just look at those views of the sunset from the terrace built by Sonny himself! I hope people remember that this is a hostel when they're writing their reviews. Overall I... More

Ideal Pension was booked using Booking.com. It's easy to find, in a very convenient location. Great access to the waterfront, beautiful scenic bays accessible on boat trips or push biking, restaurants... However the staff don't speak English and had to contact the manager by phone about our reservation. We were there for 3 nights and we had to move rooms-... More

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
