For a brand new hostel, Shantihome has created a really amazing environment; a communal, home away from home. Staff and guests may cook dinner for whoever is around and breakfast bites are available in the morning. Located near the main pedestrian street you're only steps away from a main hub of activity. Staff is helpful for getting you out of town for day trips to the beach or ruins. My only complain would be that there are no lockers to secure your valuables. So glad you opened in Izmir!
If you're looking for a quiet, hideaway Majda's is the place. This is definitely not a party hostel, but still has an amazing atmosphere to meet other travellers and get a good night's sleep. The tour with Bata is an amazing way to learn about the history of Bosnia and gives great insight to the struggle and current attitudes of the locals. The BEST shower I've ever seen in a hostel, breakfast is light but sufficient and you're half way between the tourist sights and the train/bus station.
The hostel lives up to its name. If you want to party, Greg and Tom's is the place. Staff gets drinking games going and takes you out on the town. Michael and Derek you're legends! If you manage to get out of bed you're close to the main square and other touristy stuff. The showers are insanely good and the dinners make the price worth it. Love the decor, very cool spot to hang.

This is a school dorm turned hostel for the summer. The staff aren't particularly invested - helpful but only the bare minimum. Got a private room (which was pretty awesome) when I booked a dorm, but I'm traveling solo and the hostel was a ghost town, hard to meet others. Bathrooms are just passable with moldy shower curtains. The kitchen doesn't have a single plate or utensil so don't count on making any meals. I checked out a day early.
Teadora is amazing! It's a small hostel but the roof top terrace is worth the hike up 6 flights. You'll be thankful for the air conditioning. May not be the best for a solo traveller since its so small. After only 2 nights it felt like home.
This place has nailed hostel life to a T! I came for 5 days and after 2 I joined the staff I loved it so much. I've never been in a better hostel. Free dinners are actual solid meals, breakfast is more than just cereal and instant coffee (REAL COFFEE). The staff creates such a great atmosphere that every single guests takes it upon themselves to make each other feel at home. Perfect for solo travellers, for those that want to party and those that want to have a relaxing night in. H1Home 4TW
The beds and linens were really comfortable, the shower pressure was manageable but I wouldn't have tried to wash my hair (it would've taken forever). Staff keeps valuables behind the desk for you free of charge, day or night. I was unlucky with roommates but there was no effort by staff to bring everyone together in the evenings to meet (as I've had at other hostels). As a solo traveller that can make or break a hostel. An up and coming hostel right near Kensington Gardens and the tube.
