This isn't really a hostel, it's a hotel pension with some dorm rooms. No lockers, & there's only one key per room so you have to depend on your roommates to lock the door. When I needed to get to the airport for a flight, I asked about taking public transport - I knew it was only 2 lira. The staff said "yes, but you can take our shuttle for 40 lira." They kept insisting on their shuttle and I had to figure out how to bus to the airport on my own. The breakfast is awesome though!
Dormitory ? Can a small room with two singles n one double be called a dormitory ??? Really to expansive for a dorm. Staff only care about money. Don t book the taxi to the airport there...there is a bus but they won t help or tell you.
We had a wonderful stay at the Sabah Pansiyon. The staff couldn't have been more helpful, accommodating or helpful if they tried. The food in their restaurant was also excellent - would highly recommend the chicken shish! We loved the fabulous breakfast each morning too. It was in a fabulous location in the old town. Would definitely recommend it - excellent value for money!

Nice location within the old town, I stayed in a one bed private and it was a decent room. The price was moderate, there are definitely cheaper places available that aren't listed on Hostelworld that you can find once you get to Kaleichi. Staff isn't helpful in terms of suggestions or recommendations. Everytime I would ask them for a suggestion on bars, restaurants, tours, etc. Their only answer was to go to their restaurant, their bar, and book trips through them. So that kind of sucked.
This is a relaxed very clean efficiently run place. Excellent buffet B/F comfortable beds good wifi in room good showers. Any request for advice or help always gets positive friendly response from staff.. No cons worth mentioning
I really like the hostel. The boss is so nice and the hostel is so nice. My friend said it's her favorite hostel in Turkey.
Staff were kind and rooms were clean although the atmosphere was pretty poor with no one hanging out or mingling. Though I was there in shoulder season so it's probably quite good in peak months. Overall pretty good though.
Overall good place for money- staff very helpful.
The breakfast was very good and one could eat as much as he/she decides. I did not use the pool so I cannot judge about that. It was still before the main season so the hostel was (probably) not full. There was a nice place to sit and chat together, general impression is very good, though it was one of the most expensive hostels I stayed in.
A very sweet place right in the heart of the old city... The breakfast is amazing!!!
I have traveled for over 45 years. And, quite a lot since retiring. This was one of the most surprising places I've ever visited and the entire staff at Sabah made it even better! This pension is clean, organized, has a fantastic location, great food, but the best thing is that they are the most accommodating staff I've ever experienced! I never found a thing they wouldn't do or at least try to do for you. In my case, "do!" Friendly and helpful doesn't even begin to describe them. The BEST!
Great location ! We had a better room than expected. Nothing to complain about !
I stayed in the 4 bed mixed dorm. It is very small with all 4 beds touching each other. The room also borders a busy street so quite noisy. No lockers in room. Has a good restaurant and bar and pool as described. If you are looking for a dorm than probably better options are out there, but for private rooms (which I didn't stay in) would probably be ok.
Only stayed a night but rooms very small and cramed. Breakfadt was great.
Room was great for a good price. It was convenient to rent the car at the hostel. However, the vehicle was in poor condition: scratches on most part of the body, windshield chipped.

Superb place to stay and instantly felt at home when we arrived. Staff are friendly and always willing to help, even let us use the kitchen when we wanted to make our own tea. The only downside was our toilet leaked but was fixed as soon as they were made aware. Highly recommend this place and would definitely come back again.
Rooms were good,but staff not that friendly ! They kept on insisting us for them to drive us to the airport and pay 45 lira, when the bus is 4lira and it takes half an hour to get there.!
Because I arrived at 8:00pm, it's hard to find the hostel even for local taxi driver! It seems that I live next to the owner~ and you can hear some noise such as opening the door~
