The breakfast here was fantastic and filling. The staff were extremely helpful. The location couldn't be better. They have two computers for guests to use. The dorms were clean by dorm standards. The bathrooms were in good shape and were clean by dorm room bathroom standards. The chill-out area is really nice. Highly recommended.

My family and I found the Boomerang Guesthouse to be the most wonderful place to stay in Selcuk. Greeted by the Owning family and Guesthouse kitten made us feel so at home. The rooms were extremely comfortable and the newly renovated bathrooms, only added to the comfort.

We indulged in the delicious breakfast which was a great mix of Turkish, Australian and New Zealand. This was one of the highlights for me. We also found the owner's local knowledge of Turkey and Ephesis to be fantastic and extremely helpful.

Thanks Boomerang would love to come back and stay again!

Do not stay at this place. They have bed bugs. If you look through the trip advisor reviews, they have had this problem since at least 2009. They are aware of it and have not done anything to fix this. The owner is very unaware of how to handle the situation and claimed to have renovated everything and the problem was gone... but left a bed-bug-infested mattress in the hallway... with no cover! He will also lie to your face and deny that they've had any bed bug complaints.

At first glance, Boomerang did not have a lot of atmosphere but the location was good, the price was right and everything looked new and clean so we decided to stay. The owner seemed hospitable and friendly but it didn't take long for him to get on my nerves. Once when sat down and checked in and chatted for a bit he asked us what our travel plans were. We told him we were booked to take a cruise in Fethiye, and he told us that the one we booked was too expensive and basically tried to make us feel stupid for booking us. He tried to convince us to cancel it and book with some other operator, no doubt a friend of us. It was extremely irritating and he gave me a really bad vibe, and I really should have just left at that point.

Once we got settled into our room I started noticing little things like the toilet wasn't clean, there wasn't enough toilet paper, we couldn't lock our balcony door, etc. I checked the mattress for bed bugs when we arrived and it seemed alright, although again, not very clean. We looked around for the owner to ask about our balcony door and get some toilet paper, but he was nowhere to be found. We later realized that the reason for this is that he sits at the bus station all day trying to get more customers, instead of taking better care of his establishment and guests!

In the morning when we went up for breakfast I poked my head into the empty room next to us and was appalled to see bed bug fecal matter all over the uncovered box springs! It made my sick to my stomach. We went and grabbed the owner and pointed out what I saw and asked him if anyone had ever complained about bed bugs before and his exact words were: "No. Never". After seeing the reviews on this site that was obviously a lie! I told him based on what I saw he had a serious problem and he said "You know, you're right. But that's from before, we have renovated. Everything is brand new! How can it be possible to have bugs?" Well, that may be true, but the beds themselves are certainly not brand new! He told us they had been sprayed but I really don't think that is good enough, and also I think he is extremely ignorant about bed bugs if he is just leaving the signs so out in the open like that. After reading reviews on this site it is clear that people HAVE complained before and he has done nothing about it! We also mentioned that our balcony door wouldn't lock and he showed us how to do it and then said with a sly grin "See... all you had to do was ask me". Well we would have asked you, if you were ever here!!! We checked out immediately after that and found a room at a much better place recommended in the Lonely Planet guide.

Do yourself a favor and avoid Boomerang Guesthouse, and avoid Tom the owner, who lurks around the bus station wearing an Australian hat. And guess what, he's not Australian.

These guys were amazing. Firstly we showed up in Seluck late at night with no where to stay as all the accommodation was booked out. We contacted Boomerang who came into town to pick us up. The rooms have been recently updated and were spotless. Breakfast was great and so was the travel advice. They even offered a free lift to and from Ephesus. Nothing was too much of a hassle. A great friendly place to stay!

We had a very nice stay wıth Abdullah and his famıly in Selcuk at Boomerang. There are a variety of types of rooms, wıth a fine view from the terrace, a convenient locatıon just 50 metres north of the main museum, wireless and PCs avaılable, and the rooms are recently completed, with fıne showers, lovely stone work and woodwork. There are rooms looking over the street, and over an open, green space in the back. Some of the rooms have large balconies. Complementary rides ae available to Efesus.
