If you have to deal with the older bloke, you could get ripped off. According to him, there isn't a Hava bus to the airport. So you should pay him 80 TL to have his mate drive you. However, there is a Hava bus for 10 TL. If you leave the old town by the clock tower, going left (stay of the right near the sea) and walk up until you're opposite the new shopping center. There's a kiosk. Beyond that, is a pull-over by a round fountain. The bus leaves every hour on the hour.
The shower and bath weren't clean. For backpackers looking to socialize, that ambiance just isn't there. And unfortunately I stayed there twice. I don't think the food was clean either. Both times I caught a gastric souvenir.
Lonely Planet really shouldn't have recommended that place. I met another traveller who was waiting for the post office to open (Ramadan time) so he could send his post, then finally escape that pension.
