No air conditionning system !! So very hot ! Very difficult to sleep! Very dirty room! Dirty and very hot bathroom! No paper for the toilets! Fragile superimposed bed! Very noisy! Only one plug for the entire room! Tiny Room !


As the other reviews suggest, this isn't a hostel you book for comfort, you will have no A/C, almost no security (lockers are available in the reception though) and it's a bit dirty (but you get clean sheets). Anyway, I recommend this hostel because this is a party hostel and this is why you are in Bodrum!!!


The staff in the reception appeared only very late in the day, I couldn't open the entrance and had to sit outside. The room was very dirty and they had 3 hours to clean it. The toilet was dirty and wet the whole time and it was shared with only 2 rooms, toilet paper was missing also. In the room there was only one plug and you had to decide between using the fan or charging your devices. There was only a thin curtain to cover the glass door open to the others and without keys of the room.

Delayed check in didn't start the stay well. rooms were hot with only a fan and loud karaoke downstairs didn't help but only real backpacking option in Bodum.


We booked a week In advance for a private 2 bedroom dorm. At 2pm we came to check in & no one was at the reception for nearly 2 hours we had to wait.We were told on arrival that we would have to be in a one bedroom dorm & one of us had to sleep on the floor. The bedroom wasn't big enough for our bags, us & the mattress on the ground. They didn't give us a pillow for the mattress after we asked 3 times. The staff were nice enough but were very unorganised in running a backpackers.

Owner Comment (Hide)
I am truly sorry to you and anyone who could not get their correct bed this summer but so many of you just would not leave. So to anyone who did or did not get a bed this year please try to come again next year. Always remember stay safe, travel light and party hard.


This was the most disappointing place we stayed, the room was dirty, they couldn't be bothered to make the bed, the sheets were stained with white marks, the under sheet was also marked with yellow patches, the bathroom was unclean, the shower head broken saturating the loo paper, who knows when it was cleaned last, even swept. Photos to back up this statement. Would never recommend it. The staff was friendly at least and location was good if you dont want to be near the port. Very over priced.

Staff make up for anything that isn't great


It's the worse hostel I've ever been!Both rooms and toilets are extremely dirty, rubbish on the floor and the mattress. We booked a room for 5, but apparently there was a problem so they only give us two dirty double rooms, and they suggest to put the terrace matters on the floor ( in this occasion staff was very rude) not worthing the price at all!

We had booked a twin room and at our arrival we were told that they were unable to host us because they were overbooked. They even refused to find us another place in the city. Just apologised and told us we had to look for some "panzion" by ourselves.

The room was so dirty that we had to buy stuff to clean it ourself. we also bought our toilet paper. We felt like nobody was working in there but, when we finally found them, the staff was nice (except from the manager). So don't go there. Only the location is good in this place. And the fact that there is no AC makes this place even worst.


Hostel is good but social-wise it wasn't as good as others ive stayed in europe room was boiling hot as well


The location was great and close to everything. The staff were friendly but they were very disorganised and it took a long time to get into the room. Other travellers told me that they had completely overbooked beds the previous nights. The bathrooms were dirty and there is no lockers or security. The rooms were very hot, even with a fan.


I had a great time here! I loved the staff, they were welcoming and immediately I established a friendship with all of them, which is hard to say about about most hostel staff. I loved the roof top area & bar where a lot of people got to meet. I left to go on a tour & ended up coming back just to see everyone. Met some great people here and enjoyed the nights out with everyone to some of the best party spots. Only complaint is that there is no AC and it is super hot esp in summer! Add more fans!


Had fantastic time! Excellent staff, location and value for money! !! Had fun!
