The welcome that guests receive at the Karahan Pension is as warm as one can imagine. Mehmet Bey and his sons bent over backward to make the two of us feel comfortable and at home. The rooms are very basic (bed, plastic chair, hooks on wall) and the bathroom lacked any hot water - but we ended up having a... More

We stayed at Karahan Hostel for 2 nights having been driven from Yusufeli to Barhal. Barhal itself had a quaint, friendly feel about it and the hostel is just out of town and is just fantastic. It felt like we had stumbled across a real gem of a hostel, excellent location in the kackar mountains, family run, who couldn't do... More

After a long day of driving from Rize we were thrilled to eventually arrive at Karahan Hostel, just past the tiny village of Barhal. The family took excellent care of us (and everyone else), carrying bags way up to the rooms, organizing the local church to be opened, and generally making us feel very welcomed. Our room was cozy, very... More

Having stayed in Yusufeli, after driving from Trabzon via Of, through roads that got more and more narrow and windy, it was a huge relief when we actually reached Barhal - and were 'found' by Ahmet. He knew we were coming, and came into the village to look out for us. That set the tone for a stay with a... More

We loved staying with the Karahan family. It is a long bumpy ride to the pension but it is worthwhile! Son Ahmet receives you like you are the only guest in the hotel. Although you can not expect a five star hotel in the middle of nowhere, evrything you need is there. The cabins are not too big but cosy... More

Set atop a hill outside of Barhal. Basic rooms etc. but who cares? The hosts are welcoming and helpful, the food is great, and the prices very reasonable.

After a very long, very bumpy drive to Altıparmak (Barhal) on the Ispir-Yusufeli road -- which threads through a spectacular gorge that will soon disappear under water, once the Yusufeli dam is complete -- we arrived at the Karahan Pansiyon. Slowly traversing the last two kilometers of dirt, we missed the small parking lot situated 50 meters before the steep... More

My husband and I stayed with Mehmet, Ebu, and Ahmet last fall (October 2011) which was technically right around the time they close up for the winter. We had no reservations, but they were quick to open a room, and prepare it for us (extra blankets, heater, and all). We enjoyed meals with the family the first 2 nights before... More

We've been there for 2 nights at the third week of April. It wasn't the high season, so the weather wasn't perfect. But it was still wonderful to stay there with the accompany of the owners (Mehmet bey and his son). The food was wonderful, too. If you're planning for a hike to Kackar mountains, Karagol Lake or Libler Lake,... More
