I arrived at Atilla's planning to stay a few days, and wound up spending a week there. It is possible to walk to the ruins at Ephesus (about 45 minutes). Most of the walk is pleasant and scenic, though the last part involves being on the road and dodging the tour buses as they go by. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the meals (it is possible to buy into a package that includes both lunch and dinner) are excellent. Not only is the food good (vegetarian options available), but mealtimes are sociable, and you get a chance to share stories with many fellow travelers. The swimming pool is a good break after the Ephesus hike, and in the evening you can smoke a hookah or shoot pool (no extra charge) on their excellent table. Atilla, his family, and the staff of this hostel have provided a wonderful place to stay.
