Property Description

Ahmet and me (Co?ku) is a couple from Turkey who opened this hostel 6 years ago. We have been worked a lot. The house that we rent for the hostel was empty for ten years. There was nothing inside the house. Only dust and spiders :) We create this hostel with very good energy. We put our full of passion, care and love in it during the construction. Nowadays, we are sharing our peace and love with our guest and friends here and being enjoy it. They are calling this place ' An oasis in the middle of the city'. We love nature. We are very sensitive and respect to nature and creatures. That`s why we recycle our rubbish as much as we can. We make our own cleaning material. We don`t use any chemicals for washing the dishes and sheets and clothes. We make our own detergent with natural materials. We use our kitchen left over food for our chickens and making compost.

*We are right in the middle of the city, very very close to Basmane main train station... We have garden with many trees, flowers, a small fountain and a courtyard which is very cool in hot summer days. The hostel building is a restored antique wooden building, build earlier then 1839.

****We have AIR-CONDITIONER in 4 rooms: 6 bed dorm with wooden bunk beds, 8 bed dorm and two private Deluxe 3bed private. The two rooms have fan.*****

***EVERY MORNİNG we have open buffet home-made, freshly prepared ORGANIC BREAKFAST. (+15 TL)

*We have a SHARED KİTCHEN, where there is a separate fridge for our guests. The kitchen as well has a quite big space and has a glass window in the ceiling.

*We have bicycles for rent (20tl), as Izmir’s main areas are mostly flat and easy for cycling. there is a bicycle road next to the seaside. Our reception hours is from 08:00 to 00:00 midnight. Feel free to contact us between these hours and you can always reserve a space via directly reaching us by phone or mail.

We help our guest the best with traveling advice and help them with using transportation and buying plane-bus tickets.

We are very close to the main attraction areas in Izmir, like Agora ruins (5 minutes walk), Kemeralti open Grand Bazaar area (10 minutes walk), Kultur Park (5 minutes walk), Kadife Kale Castle (25 minutes walk) and famous Clock Tower (15-20 minutes walking) And around the hostel, there are many small streets with old houses and local shopping street where you can view local life.

    Really nice hostel. The staff are really nice and the owner has been really really helpful. There's been a lovely vibe in the hostel and one where you really will meet fellow travellers to explore with. The fire at night really gives the place a homely feel and we ate and drank together a lot, sang sings together. A wonderful experience and ideal for people who are travelling alone. Wonderful hostel!

    Great location, people, and atmosphere. Definitely worth staying here, especially if you're looking to spend more than a night or two.

    One of the loveliest hostels I’ve stayed at! Lovely atmosphere, so many people just hanging out in the garden area because it’s so nice. Facilities are clean, great sized kitchen. Location is very central and initially as a girl walking from the station to the hostel I felt nervous but after 5 days there I realised it was actually okay! Thanks for a lovely stay guys

    Amazing staff and atmosphere here! I met so many wonderful people and I love how everyone hung out in the common area in the evenings. :) The bathrooms need to be cleaned more regularly and the organic soap in the kitchen doesn’t get the dishes clean which is quite a concern during a global pandemic.

    Excellent staff. Very friendly and chill atmosphere. I had an amazing time here at Lotus Garden and could not recommend it more. The general set up and the vibe of the hostel was extremely warm, welcoming, and conducive to attracting all sorts of laid back and open people. However, this is not the cleanest hostel in the best neighborhood. The commitment to the environment means trade offs in cleanliness (i.e. alternative cleaning product choices), and also the neighborhood is a bit run down.

    An old crumbling building, all precarious, bathrooms look like shacks, in my room you had to be careful to open the window otherwise it would fall, all crumbling.

    We only stayed here one night, but that was enough. The sheets were so scratchy and thin. The bathroom was horrific; I dreaded having to go in there.

    Not the best hostel choice. Bed sheets smelled like they didn’t dry properly. Bathrooms have a horrible odor. For the quality you get, the bed is worth like 5€ max.
