This place is fantastic. views are awesome, the pool and garden area arts lovely and the social dinner is great! staff are friendly and very helpful. It's just a short ride into town or a 45 minute walk to ephesus. super relaxing and loved it!
Great place to unwind for a few days as you travel around Turkey. Great swimming pool, bar(Efes on tap) and chilled atmosphere to chat to other travellers. Best place to launch your Ephesus tour from. Sylvia's a hottie!;) The blokes are top notch as well and can sort you out with whatever you need. -Devan
Great food, great people, plenty to do on a lazy day with swimming pool volley ball court table tennis pool table bar. And organise trips for you to save hassle
I got bed bugs first night.. But other than that staff is really cool, pool table..pool and good free food!
The best hostel I have ever stayed at. Very warm and welcoming staff. Having the pool was great!
Atilla's Getaway is the place to stay if you are planning to visit Ephesus, Pammukale, Sirince and surrounds. We stayed in a double with shared bathrooms and it was spotlessly clean. The property lends itself to travellers meeting and sharing stories around the pool, the picnic style benches and loungers. The breakfast and dinner combination is great as the food is amazing. The staff helped us with our tickets, the free shuttle to Selcuk makes trips a breeze and you can just walk to Ephesus!

Our stay at Atilla's was one of the best on our trip in Turkey. Alex and Carlos couldn't be more helpful and did everything to make our stay seamless and a totally relaxing experience. Their mother's home made breakfasts were the best we've had in Turkey. Would highly recommend Atilla's to all. Alejandro & Cristina
Our stay at Atilla's proved to be the highlight of our trip to Turkey. Atilla's is truly an oasis on the outskirts of Selcuk within a pleasant 40 minutes walk through the hilllside to Ephasis. Atilla, Alex and Carlos couldn't be more helpful and did everything to make our stay seamless and a totally relaxing experience. Their mother's home made breakfasts were the best we've had in Turkey. Would highly recommend Atilla's to all. Craig and Deb - Australia

The location is outside Selcuk, but they offer regular free transfers to hostel from bus station. You can walk relatively easily in 50 mins to Ephesus from hostel. It's got a great atmosphere but there weren't a lot of people when we stayed and I imagine it's loud when there's lot of people. Staff were nice (Aussie/Turkish mix) and got involved with us playing pool which was fun as it meant everyone got to know each other.
staff is very friendly, as well as the other guests. food is good, although a bit pricey compared to city options.
Atilla was great and very accomodating, nice little plot of land he's got. I'm sure it's even better in the summer time once the pool is filled up. Quick jaunt into town and close to Esephus. Meals were good and his pool table is quite nice as well. Would recommend staying here for a night or two.
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.
Atilla is One of the best guys I have ever met! This place is like a new home when you arrive. Can't be any better!

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.
I was really looking forward to staying here, and had reserved three days (which is more than enough for Selcuk and its related visits) more as a repose than anything. This place seemed to be a good place for a retreat, with its bar and pool. When I got off the train and called for a pickup, guy was caught off guard and told me he wasn't taking any guests due to ongoing repairs. He said he'd pick me up and take me somewhere else (Artemis Hotel, don't stay here, gross), but I lost my deposit
