We didn't actually stay at merhaba, when we arrived they hadn't checked their email and had no space for us. They took us to a friends pansyon on the other side of town. Tuna pansion was clean and comfortable with a nice garden and in a good location.


We did not even get to stay in the hotel. We were sent to the owners brothers hotel hundreds of meters away (despite him acknowledging our booking). He said it was supposed to be much nicer but then I feel sad for anyone staying in his hotel. It was horrible. They did not know that they had put free parking on their page and we spent a while with the owners son cruising for open spot around town. The toilet door didn't close in one of the rooms. The "free breakfast" cost 10TL.


They didn't have a room for me despite me confirming with them before hand. They said there was no room and someone had overstayed... Staff generally seemed clueless about what to do even though i'd been double booked. Walked me off to some other hotel further up the hill in Bodrum..poor.


Very great staff, especially Murat - went out with me, indicated all the good places in town and organized boat trips. It's a smaller hotel, but with excellent location, close from everything by walk.

Nice value for money. Great place if you are looking for clean and cheap place to sleep. Do not expect too much though.

The staff were nice if a little disorganised, they didn't receive our booking and had to put us in a larger room (which was fine). The bathroom was a bit average but fine for the price. The free breakfast was good and the wifi reliable. Because our room was street level, and the main doors were never locked we were slightly concerned about security, but this meant our room was quiet (there were noise concerns from others as a large club is situated close by).


Staff were wonderful, gave us some great information when we first arrived and picked us up from the bus station and then dropped us at the ferry stop early in the morning when we left! Wifi was good as was the breakfast. We seemed to be one of the only ones staying here meaning the rooftop bar was out of action... May just be due to is being there early in the season. We had a private room between two which was comfortable however the bathroom was tiny and smelled like mould.


Good hotel and well located. The breakfast is good, but don`t have a lot of options.

We weren't too sure what to expect from reading the reviews but we really enjoyed our stay here! Owner was lovely and made an awesome breakfast for us in the morning and came to fix the blown bulb in our room as soon as we asked. Sure the bathroom wasn't the cleanest but for what you're paying it's a good stay with a good location.


The hostel is well located, close to the beaches, close to the centre and the port. The room was ok, considering that the price is very good you can't expect much. Like other guests say, the person in reception sleeps on a bed next to his desk. The water of the shower was cold sometimes warm sometimes.... not good. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean enough but the toilet was always wet because of a leak and didn't smell very well. The owner gave us a free shuttle from the station!!


Good rooms and good breakfast. All you really need.


Nothing flashy but with everything you need. Super nice staff who looked after me well. I am a female travelling on my own so security is important to me. It was perfect.

We chose this hotel as we were tired and the port pickup stood out to us- we called them for a lift and they refused us and we were made to pay for a cab. Arrived at the hotel only to find that It was overbooked. He walked us up many stairs to I assume one of his mates hotels instead- we walked in and left as it was filthy and had no twin room like we had booked. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone it was just a massive mess up.


Great location . Good budget hotel if traveling .. Breakfast not do good and does not have a swimming pool they are referring to the ocean.


Gave me a twin room instead of double. Staff sleeping everywhere in reception and balcony. Great location but wouldn't stay again.


As other travelers have mentioned, they were over booked when we arrived. The guy there mentioned he couldn't contact me, although I had previously had email conversations with him with no mention of being over booked. Cut it short, we got taken to another pension about 600m away by a teenage kid, left there, the pension operator couldn't speak English at all and demanded passport and money immediately. Handled very poorly by Merhaba Hotel and wouldn't recommend at all.


The staff was very unfriendly, some of them slept on the terrace where the breakfast is located Better pay a little more, than go here


I would deem this a flea bag hostel. It's cheap but you get what you pay for, in this case.

Pros: excellent location, the staff kindly picked us up from the bus station on arrival and our room was very quiet and blocked out all the noise from the surrounding nightlife and nice sunset. Cons: we booked a twin room several days in advance but instead got given a double. When we asked to change we were rudely told "whatever" and refused. The air on did not work properly and when set at 16 degrees, got te room to 36 degrees approximately. It was very basic for the amount we paid.
