Staff was friendly and welcoming and initiated group games with the guests in the evening, which was fun. Very relaxed atmosphere and the pool area is lovely. Be sure to get the food included package as the food is excellent ad well worth the price. They do however have a strange and slightly inconvenient token system in use for buying drinks, but otherwise no complaints. There aren't any lockers, but I felt very comfortable leaving some of my things lying around (use your common sense though).

The best hostel I have ever stayed at!! Atillas and all his crew are amazing - ready to help with anything. Great breakfasts and dinners. Awesome pool and outdoors area.
Run by an enthusiastic and welcoming owner, he's created a utopia of sorts for independent and budget travelers to socialize, play, relax and experience the spirit of the area. With spring water swimming pools, Shisha and happy hour sangrias, chill-out lounge areas and knowledgeable staff, this is easily one of the best hostels I've ever seen (and I've stayed at thousands). A word of warning, though... You will not want to leave.

This is just the most awesome place! Mainly because of the stunning pool/common area and fantastic view, but also a very friendly atmosphere and relaxed helpful staff who make sure to look after you. There's a bar and tons of space for relaxing, good internet, bathrooms are cleaned all the time. The only place you should stay if you're going to Ephesus!
Amazing place! Incredible setup with the best atmosphere and pool, bar etc. feels like a destination holiday itself! Staff are incredibly helpful and chilled, great dinners and bbq's you can join. Fantastic pick up service and minibus, you don't want to be in selcuk! Pretty run down and atillas is incredibly nice and great to chill at after a hot day looking around Ephesus etc. also a cool walk straight to Ephesus through the countryside. Very nice facilities - great aircon etc.
Fantastic hostel. One of the best I've stayed in. Staff were terrific,the food great and the atmosphere around the pool exceptional.
Loved my stay here. Everyone is super friendly. Bbq dinners, good breakfasts, great atmosphere. Would recommend
We stayed at this place for 2 days & wished we could have stayed more. Everything you want in a hostel! The free breakfast is delicious not just standard cucumber, tomato & boiled eggs. Dinner is extra but is worth it as you all eat together creating a nice family like atmosphere. This place has a pool, ping pong table, pool table where everyone plays killer pool every night which is a great way to socialise & meet everyone. Free pick up & drop off to selcuk bus station & the best staff
Absolutely wonderful. Would be great to have bikes to get into town and would have loved Turkish coffee but we're looking forward to returning! I appreciated the subtle touches (dinner around a big table, killer pool, etc) that made easy to meet other travelers.
Atilla and Carlos were both very helpful and the open air atmosphere is very chill. Group dinners are great for socializing. Luckily the hostel attracts fun travelers making the stay all the more enjoyable.
Simply the best hostel that I've ever stayed at! Seriously!! This place has everything. Beautiful surroundings, Ephesus is in walking distance, 2 great pools & bar. The guys run it as a family so it's got a real friendly feel. And every night, all the guests ate together which meant for someone on their own like me, you meet some really cool people. Also, most nights we had a 'killer pool' tournament on the pool table (which I sucked at), but it was great fun!! I'm going back next year!
I loved this place. It's defiantly one of my favorite hostels. The pool and the staff are amazing.
Great hostel for meeting people everyone is like a family here! It's a great place to drink and play some pool, table tennis or even volleyball you can also choose to just relax and swim whilst soaking in the sun a great hostel that will cater for any of your needs! Attila is a great host truly top bloke! You have to try his homemade meat pies if your Aussie they hit home!! 5 stars surely!

Atilla's getaway was a great time. Very friendly staff, amazing atmosphere, the two swimming pools and hang out areas are a great way to relax. They make you feel like your home during your stay. The place has everything from camping, dorm rooms, single/double rooms and bungalows. I stayed in a dorm room and it was great. Next time I'm in turkey I'll definitely stop by for a visit.
Great place to relax for a few days. The pool is awesome, especially in the summer when it gets hot! Good base to see some of the sites in the area, especially Ephesus. Good atmosphere and the staff/owners are always around and interacting with the guests.
The pool atmosphere and outdoor area is stunning. It was a perfect getaway to base yourself. It was my bday and my friend asked if the staff could organize a surprise bday cake and they went above and beyond to make it happen. It made my bday very magical. Thank you. Highly recommended.
Wonderful pool to cool off in after a hot day at Ephesus....Wonderful dinner as well!
Clean rooms, good food, and a fantastic pool and bar area. Worth having to go a little out of the way.
This is a very chill hostel that has a great atmosphere. I met some of my trip's best buddies here. The food was some of the best in my trip in Turkey and the wifi worked great. Laundry service was cheap and Carlos is extremely friendly/helpful. The location may be a 5 minute drive out from town, but the shuttle service is super convenient and being away from town was actually a good thing. I highly recommend this hostel.
This place is great for a getaway to relax. Great facilities. Nice rooms. Only a few guests when I was there. However if you want to get things done in town the location is a problem. There is a shuttle but it is only a few times a day. The first is at 9:30 which is too late if you want to avoid crowds at Ephesus. On the way back the last shuttle is 7:30 which means 15tyr for taxi after dinner. The staff did one unscheduled trips when I was there which was great, but I did feel a bit stuck.
