Room was sparkling clean and staff were extremely helpful. Location is both a plus and a minus. It's right by Basmane station which is perfect for coming to/from the airport and Ephesus. It's also great for getting out to Denizli for heading to Pamukkale. The local area is also a hub for people fleeing politically unstable countries who are waiting for their next step. We were 2 female travellers. During the day we were fine to come and go, but at night we took taxis straight to the hotel.
If you basing yourself in Izmir to travel to other parts of Turkey (I.e. Pammukale and Ephesus) as we did this is a fabulous location super close to both train & bus stations. As two ladies travelling alone walking back to the hostel is not recommended. Loads of men drinking in the streets outside, however cabs are reasonable and we used these for night time travelling. Staff were really friendly and helpful.
