As a budget solo traveller, I found this hostel through airbnb, a phone apps.
I made contact with levent, he run the business together with his wife, arpho, a taiwanese lady. which offer great value for money stays.
Both of them and the employees very friendly and greatful to assist you if you need any information regarding your trip. Example, they arrange the green tour and hot air ballon trip for me, and yes, the tour agencies are really good.
As i was on budget trip, they advised me the cheapest way to go around towns, catching buses and a lot of walking.
If you're asian. Well that make your trip way easier to get along.
It's a great experience living in pilot inn for 6 days. A little bit long, but I love the town so much that I started to miss it.
