Hotel located in the very central location, easy to reach by the public transportation. Walking distance from the boardwalk and restaurants. The room was tiny and bathroom could be of a better quality. Overall it is a good place for one night, especially considering low price.
The hostels is located a few km from the city, but provides a free shuttle whenever you want it, so it is not an issue. Currently it is under renovation but even now looks very nice. Stuff is very friendly, helpful and provide delicious food cooked by Atillas mother (veggy food is also available). If you like hiking you can go for a nice walk to the ancient Ephesus. So far it was our favorite hostel in Turkey.
Hostel in a perfect location, less than 5 minutes from Taksim, perfect spot for nightlife. A lot of restaurants, fast food, shops in proximity. Our room (4 bed dorm) could be a bit bigger and had no window. The owner was helpful. Overall we enjoyed the stay.
