The house is well-maintained and decorated with Ottoman kitsch. For a Pension, I was impressed with the cleanliness and charming decor. There is also a garden, which is a great place to meet other travelers after a long day of wandering the twisted streets, or have breakfast in the morning.
While I was very pleased with the room, the best thing about Bastoncu was the customer service. The owner really goes above and beyond to serve his guests. We wanted to go hiking, and he offered to help us find transportation. On the morning of our hike, he got up early to make our breakfast and even gave us his number to call in case we got stranded. Finally, on the day of our departure, he called to arrange a bus, drove us to the bus station, and walked us into the station to let the bus company know we were there (and couldn't speak Turkish! ;)
