A really nice place, amazing views. very friendly staff always happy to help, helpful in organising trips. An amazingly positive experience, good food, good people, friendly atmosphere, awesome views and sunshine. What more could you want!
Nice, friendly place with good facilities. The shuttle bus service is great, but it is a bit inconvenient to have to rely on it - it does put this place at a bit of a disadvantage against all of its competitors. Dorms were clean but could get cold at night.
The only place you should stay while in selcuk. Host is very welcoming and keen to give you any recommendations in the area. His mothers cooking for dinner is a must. Traditional Turkish fair.

The hostels is located a few km from the city, but provides a free shuttle whenever you want it, so it is not an issue. Currently it is under renovation but even now looks very nice. Stuff is very friendly, helpful and provide delicious food cooked by Atillas mother (veggy food is also available). If you like hiking you can go for a nice walk to the ancient Ephesus. So far it was our favorite hostel in Turkey.
The hostel is a bit out of the way, which requires taking the shuttle to and from town but honestly I didn't mind. They serve dinner every night so you'll want to be home on the last shuttle anyways. And for breakfast, there's a menu! All the food is cooked by Atilla's mom and boy can the woman cook. Walking over to see Efes is also an easy and fun hike.
Would have liked to have stayed longer than 2 nights. Atilla is a legend, and his mum's dinners and breakfasts are amazing. Walking distance to the ruins of Epehsus, beautiful scenery, pool which was freezing but nice, can imagine in summer this place would be awesome to hang out.
Wonderful place outside of town. Good breakfast, staff and atmosphere. Hot water was not working in one set of showers so they showed us another set; no big issue there.
If you're going to Ephesus, don't look anywhere else but to stay at Atilla's. Yes it's 2.5km outside of selcuk, but they have a free regular shuttle that picks up in the heart of the city. The staff here is the highlight. They know everything about getting to and from selcuk, Izmir, and the greater southwest area of turkey. They are all also originally Australian so they communicate well and make traveling a hassle free experience. Also, you can hike to Ephesus from there along a beautiful trail
