First of all the amazing location. It is in the city center and good for walking to everywhere. And easy to come from airport by tram. There are intimate managers and 'good enough' other personel. Breakfast is very good and typical Aegean cuisine without meat or milk or cheese. It is a vegan hostel.

Kitchen utensils are good, rooms and beds are ok, enterance is easy for 24 hours.

Shantihome_hostel, Manager at Shantihome Hostel izmir, responded to this reviewResponded August 5, 2019

Thank you for your kind response. We just wanted to inform our guests who are reading, Shantihome is not a vegan hostel. We just do not cook meat in the kitchen because of the other guests possibility of disturbance by its smell. Most of the time we not only have cheese and eggs in the breakfast but also vegan and vegetarian alternatives. And our reception closes at midnight. From midnight to 08:00, if we were informed about the late check ins, we wait for you.

One owner, Ümit, is a great guy, the other guy was an insulting know-it-all with Attitude. Loud outdoor cafe back of the place, loud drunks in front, internet didn't work on top floor, not even sheets were clean, all the furniture wobbled. The photos are pure false advertising. Dirtiest, worst place ever.

We stayed here in the Summer. My advice is to avoid. There are cheap hotels in Izmir that would be a better option. Shoes off policy in hostel is fine, however, there were definitely bedbugs both in our bed and, perhaps, in the communal area as well. Our feet were destroyed with bites, and there was clear evidence of bedbugs elsewhere - there have been other reports of bedbugs as well, so clearly they just do not care. Breakfast was ok. The hostel has a weird dynamic, we weren't sure who worked there, who were friends of those who worked there, and who was staying. Go elsewhere.

First of all, it is nice place to stay with reasonable prices. All the stuff were quite friendly and helpful.You can have your breakfast with variety of food but idk how good it tastes(we havent tried it). Actually me and my gf were pleased with staying there but there are some shortcomings like we dont have lock even in our room door. Or we dont have any locker that we can put our staff inside. And the hostel are in some mess. Finally we thought that our room was a bit cold. If these problems are solved, we will definitely come and stay there again.
