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

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
