We recently stayed at Yasin Cave House for three nights. We had read some mixed reviews, but I honestly have to say the place is amazing!
We stayed in a Cave Room (Room 8) and while it was a little smelly from the dampness, its what you have to expect when staying in a ‘cave room’. I don’t quite understand why people complain about it though, as it is all part of the experience and it didn’t bother us one bit! If you come to Capadoccia you must stay in a cave room for the experience!
Yasin is an amazing bloke! We arrived at 7am in the morning after an overnight bus from Antalya and rocked up to Yasins place with our luggage, just expecting to drop it off and check in later. He checked us in straight away, which was great as we lost quite a bit of sleep on that overnight bus, so it allowed us to catch up on some in the morning.
The room was authentic, rock walls and ceilings, bathroom was tiled on the floor and ceiling. Both the room and bathroom were very clean. Yasin has the best hot water in Turkey! We have been travelling around Turkey for 5 weeks and we haven’t had hot water quite like it.
The breakfast was delicious. Yasins mum cooks it up either scrambled eggs (delicious), omelette (delicious), French toast (delicious), traditional Turkish breakfast (we had enough of these so didn’t try it!) you name it she can cook it!
There is a nice chill out area which overlooks Goreme, always plenty of available seats and tables so space was never a problem.
He told us about some of the tours that people take while in Goreme, Cappadocia and helped us with our tour bookings etc… We did the green tour to Ilhara Valley and the underground city (amongst other places) and it was great. We also went to Turkish Night which Yasin organised for us. We would strongly recommend going to Turkish Night, it was awesome plenty of food, unlimited drinks (Raki, Beer, Red/White Wine, Softdrink) and a great nights entertainment (8pm – 11.30pm).
I did read a post about Yasin sleeping in the dining area. Yes, this is true but honestly the guy is such a hard worker and does extremely long hours, it is more like a 24 hour reception so we never felt uncomfortable. He does such a great job of running this place, and is so genuine and honest!
Overall, we would highly recommend Yasins place and would definitely stay here again. As I said, Yasin and his family would go out of their way to help you!!!
Great place, great hospitality, great location!
