Decent hostel. Pros: Central location (10 mins walk to city centre), safe, generally friendly staff. Cons: Facilities can feel a bit rustic - some people may like that, but I felt like this could be a bit better. Also, all staff doesn't speak English - again, I understand that but other hostels in the area are slightly more professional with their staffing.
Very good hostel. Decent location, very professionally run, great amenities and friendly staff. Only downside is that it can feel a bit like a hotel - I was fine with that, but for those looking for a more 'authentic' hostel experience, other places would be better suited to provide that.
The perfect hostel for the relaxed traveler. Does the basics well: Centrally located (10 mins walk from Baquedano metro station, close to city centre), safe and decent amenities. Staff is great and so is the dog! While not the most conveniently located for party-goers, that wasn't what I was looking for - the atmosphere is professional yet relaxed and friendly. Since it's in a house, doesn't have the 'corporate' feel of many hostels. Only con: wi-fi can be slow in some rooms.
Average hostel. Pros: Cheap, clean and staff is quite friendly. Cons: Not a great location - 2km outside town and not accessible through any public transport; only option is to walk or wait for one of the hostel's pickups which are infrequent and not at the most convenient times. The hostel's atmosphere, while relaxed, is a bit too hippie for my liking - could be a bit more professional.
Very good hostel. Pros: (1) Location (situated in the happening Bellavista area, close to the city centre and accessible via the Baquedano metro station), (2) Facilities (fast wi-fi, great rooftop patio and common room), (3) Staff (bilingual, friendly and helpful). No significant cons, but one of the downsides of staying in a busy area is that it stays a bit noisy late into the night, which might not suit some people.
Great staff - capable, knowledgeable and friendly. Central location; amenities and other things are on par with other highly rated hostels.
Nice location, decent facilities. Staff was friendly, but a little amateurish - kids on summer jobs who weren't always available and didn't make particular efforts to keep the place quiet at night. That said, it's a self-confessed party hostel and dirt cheap, so can't complain too much - you get what you pay for. So long as noise is not a problem (parties/BBQs on the rooftop terrace can get loud), would recommend for people visiting Bodrum.
Tidy little place, conveniently located near the Otogar (Bus Terminal) in the western part of Selcuk town. Clean and quiet, staff were friendly. May not have the atmosphere of more popular places like Attilla's Getaway - ANZ is smaller, so fewer people and not as many common areas/activities - but the price+location combination more than makes up for it. Recommended for anyone visiting Ephesus.
Perfect location - 2 minutes away from the Galata Tower and within a short walk of both Istiklal Street and the Golden Horn. The uphill climb is arduous with heavy luggage, but that's the only downside. Small rooms, but nice and clean with ensuite bathrooms; rooftop terrace is awesome. Staff was very polite and professional, but with the exception of Furkan, didn't exude the same warmth as at other hostels I've stayed at... still, that's a very minor point. I would highly recommend this hostel.
Good option for the budget-conscious traveler. As with many local places, finding it can be tricky the first time you visit, but nothing too terrible. The front desk staff - Ash and Ali - were friendly and accommodative, making it a point to organize nightly pub crawls and other events, which was a nice touch. Hygiene/facilities could be better - my room smelt of socks and some of the facilities in the common bathrooms didn't work. For the price, I would still recommend this hostel though.
