Owners are lovely. Breakfast was great. If in a private room the shower has see through glass - but why not embrace that? Lovely quiet place to stay. Great if you're departing for a sailing trip as its a short walk to the harbour.
Great location near Marina (with free transfer from Otogar), friendly personnel, quiet place to rest between hiking :-) Thanks for guiding to Fish market - I bought fresh fish and in recomended restaurant beside it was grilled - tasty! Ability to use kitchen would be great!
Wished I could have stayed longer! Just there one night but easy to find, nice welcome, great room and tons of character. Not in the middle of town but that's the beauty of it! It's even got a small swimming pool!
First stop travelling along around Turkey and Tuna made it a very happy one. He reccomended a boat tour which was good and pointed out some vegetarian budget Turkish restaurants. There was no one else there but I hung out with Tuna and that was fine for me (mid-april and early in the season). 15 minute walk into fetihye Central which was fine for me as I like to be a bit out the way and to walk. I reccomended doing the walk dro Fetihye to oldunezi via Karakoy reccomended in Tuna's booklet

Friendly staff and the place is cosy. One feels nearly at home.
Good location for those leaving on a boat cruise from the harbour.
Beautiful homely setting. Nice breakfast. Nice cosy room with pool directly outside. Wifi wasn't that great. Shuttle service to town and back. Lovely hosts Tuna and his wife :)
it is a budget place. very clean, but shower booth has a glass wall, so it was uncomfortable between friends. and drain stinks.Also free pick bus, we waited an hour at terminal. Except that, host was very kind and he always clean up the pension. The sofa in the lounge was also very comfortable.
Very friendly and helpful staff who gave sound advice. Good outlook from our room and nice breakfast area.
Quiet location with clean and tidy rooms. Decent Turkish breakfast provided. For a more lively atmosphere I would head into town which is a 15 minute walk away.

Such a cute hostel! We were going on a cruise, so we stayed here for one night, and it was great! The staff were great and we really enjoyed this little bit of paradise.
Great little place, admittedly a bit away from the town centre when compared to other hostels we saw, but an easy ride with the frequent shuttle and a nice walk in the evening. Tuna is AMAZING and helped us set up boats and buses for our trip. Only complaint is laundry - having been in Turkey for a month, 25L for laundry is a lot. The mini pool is amazing, great for cooling off after getting too much sun at the beach. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great stay at Monica's place. Monica and Tuna were caring and friendly hosts and even gave us lunch when we arrived. Although the pool is little its the perfect size to cool off! The main courtyard is gorgeous with plants and artwork and there's a good atmosphere, the shower in our room was a bit interesting but the other features of the hostel outweigh this! We would recommend the hostel! :)

Loved, loved, loved our stay here! We were given a gorgeous sparkling clean white-and-peach room at the top of the hotel with a panoramic harbour view. (Only drawback, tiny bathroom/shower and the firm beds typical in Turkey.) The breakfast/hangout area is a lovely eccentric courtyard draped in bougainvillea and vines, full of potted plants, fun bricabrac and a fountain. Gracious proprietor Tuna helpfully set us up with a fine all-day "12 Islands" cruise with a trustworthy operator.
Friendly and helpful staff. The only issue we had was that our bathroom was basically a shower stall in the corner of our room, and we had to keep the door open to air it out otherwise there was a fowl odour. We peeked into another room and they seemed to have a normal enclosed bathroom.
Not very impressed with this property further away from the docks than expected so not convenient if you are getting a cruise in the morning, also accidently opened another room with our key, seems the keys work for all the doors. The owner also made a mistake on our bill and decided to call our boats captain directly to chase up the cost of a few beers. Not a nice way to start the next part of our trip making us seem dishonest. Also far too many cats and stray dogs wandering about.
The staff were really amazing, we were there only one night but were accommodated for amazingly. the views were great, breakfast fantastic and if i am luck enough to return i will be staying here!
Need to advertise that aircon is extra.
Great staff, super friendly and helpful. Nice location and beautiful view. Would go again for sure. Couldn't ask for more.
Decent hostel, laundry is 25TL which is the most expensive I found in Turkey.
