Property Description

Me (Coşku) and Ahmet (who is my love) opened this hostel 4 years ago. We have been worked a lot. Before our hostel, it was empyt for ten years. There was nothing inside the house. Only dust and spiders :) We create this hostel with very good energy. We are sharing our peace and love with our guest and friends here. they are calling this place ' An oasis in the middle of the city'. We are very sensetive and respect to nature and creautures. We love nature. We recyle our rubbish as much as we can. We make our own cleaining material. We dont use any chemicals for washing the dishes and sheets and clothes. We use our kithcen left over food for our chickens and making kompost.

*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 *****

***EVERY MORNİNG we have open buffet organic, home-made ORGANIC BREAKFAST. (+12 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.

Feel free to contact us between these hours and you can always reserve a space via directly reaching us by phone or mail.

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.

    Beautiful old house in the most interesting part of Izmir. Spacious, comfortable room. Excellent shared shower. Friendly, helpful atmosphere in communal area next to garden. We would definitely stay again.

    Lotus Garden is great place to stay. It is located very close to the Basmane Train Station which is one of the main stations, you can get here very easily from the airport. It is located very close to Kemeralti Market and the pier. The staff are super friendly and made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere is very peaceful, they have a lovely garden/courtyard in which guests hang out and chill. The breakfast was not worth it (in my opinion), wasn’t as tasty as other reviews have suggested.

    The curse of this place is that it feels impossible to leave! Such a great atmosphere, and all the volunteers and the owner were absolutely lovely and very helpful. Everyone would hang out in the common area and chat! Breakfast was also amazing and healthy. Please stay here if you get the chance

    I enjoyed my time here, definitely opt in for the breakfast spread as it's amazing and worth every penny! The place has great cooking facilities and the garden is lovely. The place feels like a private oasis. Staff were not particularly knowledgeable about things but were helpful nonetheless. The area outside can be a bit noisey but really not an issue for most people. Would 100% recommend the Lotus Garden Hostel to people travelling to Izmir!

    Fantastic position, really great atmosphere. Good breakfast and we felt everything was clean and cared for. Highly recommended! Only improvement would be air freshener in the shoe room.

    Nice location, staff, atmosphere. I loved making use of the kitchen cooking fresh veg from the produce markets nearby. The breakfast in the morning is worth the extra money.

    Nice little hostel with a cool vibe. Only stayed one night so didn't see much of Izmir or try the breakfast but the room we stayed in was lovely and large and comfortable.

    Hmm, a tough hostel to review. On the one hand I definitely like the hippie vibe and what the owner is trying to achieve. The place feels so relaxing the moment you walk in. But on the other hand, cleanliness, facilities, and security are terrible: it’s an old place, shower and bathroom a bit daunting, and so many cockroaches in the kitchen (though none in the bedrooms). There are no lockers but the building entrance is secure. unfortunately izmir lacks modern capsule type hostel alternatives.
