“The best place to stay in Cappadocia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2014

We stayed in Pilot Inn for 2 nights and this hotel was perfect. Levent and Aphro were very welcoming and made sure we had the best stay. They organized the pick-up, the hot air ballon flight, the turkish night show and a couple of tours which were all great value and great experience.

Levent is well-learned, having great knowledge about Turkey's history and culture. Talk to him, he loves telling you lots of interesting stories.

We planed to visit Pamukkale the next day, however, the bus tickets were all sold out. Aphro offered us an alternative route and helped us to book the last 6 bus tickets. How sweet she is!

The staff were friendly and very helpful, always have smile on their face. Our room was very clean and relaxing which is just what you need after a long day's tour.

It was also wonderful to enjoy the delicious breakfast, especially the eggs, sun-bread and apple tea in the roof balcony with warm sunshine. All in all a great stay. We would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Aphro helped me a lot for the trip, i contacted her few mths ago before going. She is so nice that can give u many valuable advises. I stayed in Dorm room in underground. It’s very nice and special but very cold.. It would be perfect if the heater is work~ Btw, the bed is too short that I always hit my head. But, I love there very much and really recommend Pilot Inn to be yr stay in Goreme.

Besides, you can ask Aphro to book Air balloon & the tours as a discount prices. N I joined the sunset horse riding trip as well. It’s fantastic. If u decides to come Goreme, Pilot Inn is the best choice.

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.

The managers "Aphro" and her husband are very kind people, they help us book tours with discount, picked up us to see whirling dance in the evening, prepared boiled water to us, and gave us some uesful advice. We only stayed a night, next day we booked a hot balloon tour in the morning, so we got up very early at 4 o'clock, it's pity we can't have long time to stay.
Breakfast is also good, we can eat turkish eggs and bread with a flower shape,etc.,it let me feel very unique.

Room Tip: We stayed in a double and single beds room, the bathroom is a little narrow.

I am a backpacker who already travel around the world for more than 4 months. I would say that here is THE BEST ACCOMMODATION in my world trip!! They offer fantastic dorm and rooms with fast wifi and different breakfast everyday. But the most impressive part is the owner, Aphro, is so nice and helpful!! They not only offer great tour with relatively cheap price, but they also offer all different information for budget travelers, I book the green tour here and my friend book the ballon tour, which was all wonderful. Aphro also share us the information of bus trip around this area, restaurant and tips for photography. Here is just like you home and they treat you as the family. The best option if you want to stay in Goreme!!

The room is quite decent with new furnishing. Pilot Inn has a comfortable lounge, so tourists can have chance to meet other backpackers around the world. The Turkish breakfast is warm and delicious with different menu everyday. Moreover, the most impressive part of the hostel is the informative owner: Levent and Aphor, both of them are willing to share and could provide you all kinds of information about Cappadocia and even all Turkey! The first day we left from Cappadocia to Pammukale, I already started to miss the hospitality!! If you are coming with group or lucky enough, Levent could offer tour for the tenants. I took a great lesson of Turkish history from him. If you are looking for inspired cultural tour, you will never be disappointed in here!

100 m to the bus station at central Göreme. 7 rooms with en-suite bathrooms and 9 bunk beds in one large, spacious cave with 3 shared bathrooms & showers. Free WiFi. Laundry service at an affordable cost. Great for budget travelers and students. Managed by a balloon pilot and tour guide, you can get priceless travel information for travelling in Turkey even for a short time. The cave maybe 4 thousand years old, nobody knows. Very centrally located; bus station and markets/groceries are within reach of seconds or couple of minutes. One can get priceless travel information at anytime manager is available, except for most early mornings as he is a hot air balloon pilot. He is also an active tour guide for 19 years.24/7 hot water. Laundry service. Smiling hosts. No need to mention; hair dryer, and free & fast WiFi, sat tv, travel library (sorry no book exchange). Great terrace view!We make ourselves available 10-16 hours a day but outside office hours and especially in case of emergency, just ring the bell at the public area and knock our employee's door.We are at a back street very close to the bus station, so its very quiet and peaceful at all times. Great sites are in walking distance such as Rose Valley, Red Valley, Love Valley and Göreme Open Air Museum.Direct buses to and from many big cities year-round. Free parking on the street protected by surveillance cameras. Very reasonable fee for Airport shuttles to and from both Kayseri (ASR) and Nevsehir (NAV) Airports.Traveling is fun. Always plan it well and be on safe side. We always go that extra step to help you; just tell us, don't hesitate. ... more   less
