It is 2mins from goreme bus station, 20 from the panoramic view above pigeon valley which is amazing for sunrise and air balloons and Umit who helps run the place is a great host and good guy all round! The breakfa is nice, filling and healthy, and included in the price! Would happily spend a week here. The rooms are maybe not real caves exactly but built very well to look like them and have central heating that if anything is a little too warm (much better than too cold when it is minus 5

Avoid this place! We had a reservation for two nights in a private double room. When we arrived at the hostel, they told us that they had a problem with the reservation and the second night we must have a shared rom with shared bathroom. They didn't try to give us a solution at all. The owner, Mustafa Kara was really rude, pretending he didn't speak English and passing all the problem to a Japanese girl he has employed. The girl was nice but hardly spoke English.


It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. The breakfast was so-so, the staff were good people but not the most friendly ones. Also, there is no private bathroom (we used 3 bed room). However, considering the price, we were satisfied with the service there.


Our stay in Ishtar Cave Pension was very good! We were lucky and finally we had a room with bathroom in suite (although we had booked a room with shared bathroom). There is a very kind girl who attends the pension and is caring about all yours needs. A good base from where discover Capadoccia. Just one thing: a couple who had made the booking by internet,finally didn't have their room, so I recommend confirm your booking by sending them an email.
