The staff were absolutely amazingamazing, they even booked my Ephesus Tour and my bus ticket to Fethiye. This was no issue and they were more than happy to help and ensure I s comfortable and had everything I needed during my stay. The restaurant was also convenient and provided delicious food. Breakfast was complimentary with my room, I had a private room with double bed and it was spacious, comfortable bed and balcony. Air con room and ensuite was great too! I would definitely stay here again!
The dorm smells like mildew and is noticeably damp. There is little (or no) night life in the city, so people go to bed early which is fine but people also wake up early which was not fine as they all used really loud alarm clocks! I've stayed in dorms just as large and never had such an inability to sleep in past 7:30am. But the staff, restaurant, and location is great.
Great hostel, the owner was so helpful with every question we had and gave really accurate information. Beautiful hostel with a great restaurant next door. I would recommend to anyone travelling to Selcuk
Boomerang was recommended to me by friends and I was very grateful! I will certainly recommend it to anyone I know who will be visiting the area.

Such a great environment to stay. The location is great and very easy to get to from the bus or the main road. Very close to St. Johns bascillia and close enough to Efes. The staff is very friendly and willing to help out. Would gladly stay again!
One of the best hostels i have stayed in. Hands down. Great food and excellent lounge area for guests. Convenient location. Family that runs the hostel is very helpful. Facilities were great and the underground dorm was good too. Made quite a few friends here. Best experience in all of Turkey.
Had a great experience at Boomerang this weekend. Traveling on a budget with a group, but it didn't even feel like it when we stayed here. The staff is so kind and despite arriving late at night, offered us tea and closed off part of the mixed dorm for our personal use. The attached restaurant serves a wonderful breakfast and has good food and drinks. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone headed to Ephesus or nearby. The location is also hard to beat!

My stay there was amazing. Great staff who go out of their way to help and really make a difference. This is my second year staying there and I'd highly recommend it to others.
I really liked this guesthouse! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the attached restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced, and the dorm room didn't have any bunk beds. My only complaint (although I'm not sure you actually have to worry about it) is that there are no lockers and the door to the dorm room is always open. That being said I'm sure they would store valuables for you if you needed it.
No hot water for shower, it's cold in the room, just light blanket there. But staffs are really nice.
Great people!! Nice staff! The only thing is sometimes dont have hoy water (when is clouded ) Really nice restaurant.
The room and showers were nice and clean, the food on site was well priced and delicious and the hostel was well located. I only gave average for the staff as even though generally they were very pleasant, the manager at the hostel was rude to a friend of mine which I felt unnecessary. This hostel also organises good quality and affordable day trips to Pamukkale and is far cheaper than haggling with taxi drivers at the nearby bus station.

The reason we rated facilities as "good" was only because we stayed in only basement room, and it was somewhat humid and damp (to the point where even the sheets felt damp.) Other than that, the entire place was fantastic--the food (both the complimentary breakfast as well as the restaurant) was excellent, the hosts were absolutely wonderful, and the whole place is just gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Perfect location with 3 minutes walk to the bus station. they provide meals in reasonable price so I had almost every meal there. Rooms are clean with private bathroom in each room. Definitely coming back if I am visiting Selcuk again.
if you are staying in selcuk, this is the place to stay. No question.
Nice hostel. VERY nice staff. Good location! Something unusual happened while I was there. The dorm room, which is in the basement, was invaded by tiny frogs. I saw over 10 during my four nights. The staff told me they had come in during a heavy rain and that they had already captured over 30! I don't believe this is a normal occurrence. Also, the bedding was slightly damp. Everyone in the dorm commented on this. Despite these things, I'd stay here again.
The location is strategic , just 5mins walk from the bus station.
Liked: Clean room with small cute frogs. Its not the peak season so I share the dorm room with 2 other backpackers. The toilets are clean with enough toilet paper, coat hook (which many hostels lack). The hosts are friendly and allows me to stay in the garden and lobby after check-out. It's between the otogar and the ruins of Ephesus, so it's convenient (Selcuk is not large actually) Disliked: The dorm in the basement is cold even its early summer in Turkey. The rug blankets is rough.
