    The staff were lovely & the shower / toilet is good value for money. But the room was extremely hot & the tiny fan didn’t help at all...there’s no other airflow. We have slept in rooms in other places with the same fan, no problem but this one was so hot it was hard to even get to sleep. No mosquito nets. No internet. Very close to airport.

    Good and safe place to stay if you simply need a bed for the night. Clean with most facilities (even one western toilet) however not much of a backpacker's vibe. Staff is lovely, though!

    As is consistent with many of the reviews, this hostel is great for one night or a stopover. It's minimal in amenities and facilities, no breakfast, no wifi, majority of the staff don't speak english etc. What I liked about it is you feel like you're staying in a family home (they're all family members in there) and Suleyman was sweetly trying to help with any of my needs.

    This is less like a hostel and more like a spare bedroom at someone's house. There's really nothing more than just a bed.the gentleman that lives there was very friendly and helpful however. Only stay here if you dont have somewhere else to go, only need a nap before a flight, or you have no money.

    This was the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed at. The hostel is situated in a neighbourhood that is not safe and there are homeless people lighting fires on the street. The place is almost impossible to find with maps or even after asking locals. The facilities are disgusting and not clean. The hostel seems to just be an extra room in someone’s house. No help in calling a taxi.
