Artemis Yoruk was a wonderful hostel. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. They have connections with the local travel agency and were able to recommend tours and book them for us. The facilities and the outdoor courtyard are beautiful and spotless. I only wish they would keep the jacuzzi and the sauna open during off season! We would definitely stay here again.
The hostel itself is beautiful and centrally located. The man who runs it is very well travelled, speaks excellent english, and is extremely helpful. On the day we checked out our ferry did not leave until 11 PM so the owner let us stay in the room all that day, which was very nice. The facilities are spotless, and some rooms open into an adorable little courtyard. Would absolutely stay here again.
Argo is a nice hostel, conveniently located about a 10 minute walk from the harbor. It is a bit small and dusty, but suited our needs just fine. One morning though, the bathroom lock broke while my boyfriend was inside and he was locked in there. It was kinda funny haha but when I went to reception, no one was there. Some nice guys in the adjoining restaurant helped us out, but we saw no one at reception all day. It was fine, but not great.
We would stay here again! Although Apartment Maruna had no oven or microwave, the facilities were adorable, and spotless. The hostel provided a free washing machine and detergent, a huge bonus. The owners live on the top floor and their son speaks excellent English and helped us out a lot. He gave us good advice about things to do in the city and provided a map. Yes, the hostel is not in the middle of the city but the walk to the old city only takes about 15 minutes and it is a nice walk.
The guys who ran this hostel were great and very helpful. The facilities were well stocked, especially the kitchen. A few notes: one small load of laundry costs 7 euro, takes over two hours, and will still be returned damp. Some of the sinks and showers are badly clogged, and the staff may ask you to switch rooms in the middle of your stay, and then inform you (after you have packed and gotten all ready to move) that it is no longer necessary. Other than this, we had a very pleasant stay.
