Reviewed February 12, 2012

I stayed for this winter with friend of mine. The place is very unique with different experience. Stay in the cave just like cave man. The view is stunning from this place. I guess the best view so far I know. The owner is very helpful and friendly. One thing that quite challenging is,
By the time we came to Goreme, it's very cold and unfortunately the weather freeze the water pipeline in most of the city. So have to survive with water for the first day. Other than that, it was great experience. I wonder what would be like staying during summer, it should be another great experience

My partner and I stayed here almost 3 months ago and I have been thinking about how amazing our experience here was and I am now leaving my 1st ever review to tell everyone that it is a fantastic place to visit and stay!

We have now been travelling for 9 months, this is the best place we have stayed by a long shot and we have been in many 5* hotels worldwide, not only because of the perfect location, amazing atmosphere, and stunning views but the hospitality was like nothing else!

Coming to Cappadocia was a last minute decision and we rushed a lot of the things we had planned. Our host went out of his way to make our stay perfect, including arranging a travel agent to come and pick us up to take us on a tour, plus arranging a friend to take us to the airport because we were on a hot air balloon ride which took longer than planned and had made us a packed lunch to take with us on our rushed trip to the airport..

True perfect hospitality in a truely amazing place.. Thank you so much Cave Life Pension!!!

Going to Goreme in Cappadocia was itself a different experience. Cavelife Pension was no different. On hearing that we have reached Bus Station , the owner cam down hill to pick us in his car.It was very nice of him. Room in the cave gave different feel. Rooms were clean and well kept. Hotel is well located and gives wonderful view in the mornings for the hot air balloons.Breakfast is reasonably good and hotel staff is very helpful. Internet is free. Only problem we faced was power cut for few hours and restricted water supply in Goreme. Will stay again.

We stayed at the hostel for one night. There were 3 of us in the cave room.

Hostel: The location is far away from everthing. It's about a 2 mins walk down to the city center, and 30 min walk to the Museum. The elevation is quite high up and overlooks Goreme. It's nice views but you may just walk up streets to get views. Don't make this a primary reason to stay here. There is a hiking trail about 2 mins from here. The walk back up the steep hills are quite a workout. Wifi was a hit or miss. Nothing inside rooms (cave issue), at common area very hit-or-miss. Upstairs near kitchen you get it all. Lobby was poor signal too.

Room: It was a 3 bed room. Single beds all around. Clean sheets. Bathroom was clean for the most part. We went end of Oct and it was freezing at night. No jokes. Issue one: Heaters come on at 10pm and turn off automatically sometime overnight. So from sundown at 6p to 10p it's whatever temp it is. You're out of luck! Outrageous! Issue two: No hot water. We confronted them in the morning and the excuse was they forgot to turn on some switch. Didn't make sense to us. No Hot water for showers, while it is 2 Degrees Celcius outside. We washed our faces in the morning with freezing cold water.

Staff: Overall they were friendly and helpful. The 2 issues were the downsides. They did organize tours through their own 'fav' company after Nomad cancelled on us.

Breakfast: There were a lot of dishes set outside on a table while it's 2 degrees. There was cheese, coffee, tea, eggs, butter, bread (now solid hard and cold), and jam.

Overall it's an OK place to stay for the short time. Check out other places too and don't base your judgement based solely on the high location.

Room Tip: Bring Converter for your devices to charge. Also if it's cold bundle up with extra clothes, heat...

The cave was ok but could have used some effort with decor. There was a huge spider above the bed. There was a staff member who was very rude to me when I asked for help. I would only go back here for the price and breakfast that was pretty good.
