Atilla's getaway is a beautiful oasis to relax in after spending the morning in the stinking heat of ephesus. The setting of Atilla's sets it apart from any other hostel I've stayed at, with its beautiful swimming pool, volleyball court, shady trees, free pool table and chilled out poolside bar.
I especially loved the home-cooked family style dinner time where everyone sits and eats together making it the perfect time to meet the other guests. For 5 euros you can get a breakfast/dinner combo making it so much cheaper than eating in town. Added tip, get the menemen for breakfast (like scrambled eggs with tomato and peppers) you'll thank me!
It amazes me that this hostel could ever get such a negative review as the one below.Ok so it's not the Ritz, so don't don't expect a 5 star resort, but do expect a warm welcome, amazing atmosphere, and feeling like you never want to leave. I stayed four nights and never had a problem getting to sleep (probably around 11pm) the bar was open and there were people drinking but it was very relaxed with people playing pool and sitting outside chatting, even a few families with young kids playing pool too. There was music playing but it was bob marley and jack johnson style not blaring party music. I didnt drink at all while I was there and I definitely didn't feel like the staff were encouraging drunkeness or loud "obnoxious" behaviour as mentioned below. The review below also mentioned the distance from town, yes it's a 20 min walk to town but atillas runs 5 free shuttles a day back and forth and if you miss one you can always flag a passing dolmus (public minibus) to get to town for about 2 lira I think, so I definitely didn't feel trapped there. Plus, there isn't much in the actual town of selcuk anyway, with Ephesus being a minibus ride away and most people use selcuk as a base for daytrips to the beach, pamukale and ruins in the area.
