Property Description

Ahmet and Cosku are a couple from Turkey who opened this hostel 7 years ago. We have been worked a lot since today. The house that we rent for long term was empty for ten years. There was nothing inside the house. Only dust and spiders :) We have created this hostel with very good energy. We put full of our 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 our natural being. 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 cats, the resf of is compost for the garden.
One of our guest really insist to us to call our hostel "Eco Hostel". I promise to him write this words. To be honest I wouldn`t write it because nowadays being ecological is a fashion and advertisement of companies. For us it is a most natural thing on the world and it is our life style. We are doing what our ancestors did it.

*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 MORNING we have open buffet home-made, freshly prepared ORGANIC BREAKFAST. (+30 TL)

*We have a SHARED KITCHEN, 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 (40tl), 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 08:30 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.

Our rooms have 4 to 5 meter high ceiling and big windows which brings lots of sun light in. Free WiFi and 24 hours hot water are available.
Our Cherry Room is a very big spacious room with a double bed and a single bed can be added. The room is 21 m2 and has a very high ceiling.

    Created a really nice tranquil, relaxed spot. The garden is lovely, good kitchen. The area it's in,Basmane, is well connected for getting around Izmir and if you're travelling out. The street beside is great for picking up food from the bakeries, fruit and veg shops etc. Everyone running the hostel was fairly helpful with advice on travelling on and needing help. Would definitely recommend.

    This place was a really chilled vibe! You have to pay to use the key after midnight and to be honest with the location I wouldn’t have liked to walk in the dark! Rooms were big and spacious and yoga mats available

    Location is the Best. 8 mins walk to Trains, subtrains to Selcuk, pass local Police Station to road connect to Bazaar market, MIGROS, mini marts, local cafes, bakery. Required to remove shoes in front and wear slippers inside room. The shoe smell can be over powering. My mix 8 dorm room is in front of foyer so book into private rooms upstairs. Kitchen to use. Can wash clothes to dry. Friendly helpful volunteer frm Swiss. Building is Old, 1 sml toilet & 1 sml bathroom for 20+ pax to share.

    The negative points are: 1- Really bad, old, and way too thin mattresses 2- The street around the hostel is dirty crowded and smelly 3- The owner's way of running the hostel is focused on cutting expenses and profiting above guest requests and comfort, I had to argue for more than 30 minutes just to open the AC in the dorm during a hot day! which was the weirdest conversation I've ever had!! and it ended up with her denying me this!! I guess I should've paid extra for the electricity bill!
