Property Description

Me (Coşku) and Ahmet (who is my love) opened this hostel 4 years ago. We have been worked a lot. The house that we rent for the hostel was empyt 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 sensetive and respect to nature and creautures. That`s why 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 make our own detergant with natural materials. 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. 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.

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.

    Lotus Garden is a highlight stay in Izmir. The place oozes with charm and a chillout vibe. The owner is a sweet lady that'll answer any question you may have and go out of her way to make your stay in Izmir or trip to Ephesus as pleasant as it can be. There's an atmosphere of trust throughout. The kitchen has several recycling bins and even one for composting. In the morning, the staff cooks a nice vegan breakfast. Eco-friendly with great people and great energy.

    This is a place has a great and relaxed atmosphere and friendly and helpful staff. Beds are good and have curtains for privacy. Facilities are simple, but good for the price. There is a large kitchen if you want to cook.

    Very interesting house that has been changed into a hostel. I slept downstairs, so don't forget earplugs because the people in the street can be noisy. Friendly atmosphere. There is a kind of curfew at 00:00 except if you know beforehand you'll be out late, you will get a key. Very close to the train station which made it so easy to travel to Ephesus and Pamukkale. I would stay again!

    atmosphere is calm and charming. High ceiling and wooden floors make the guests feel light-well. If you need calm Lotus Garden is the right place for you. Property's small garden is full of with fruit trees which is wonderful. Its vegetarian style breakfast is also tasty.

    Abbiamo pernottato al Lotus Garden per due notti in stanza privat. La zona in cui si trova l’ostello non è delle migliori a detta dei locali. Nonostante questo non abbiamo avuto effettivi problemi dovuti al luogo. Le lenzuola erano bucate e non facevano un ottimo odore, la pulizia del bagno era carente e la stanza era fredda (inizio gennaio) a causa degli spifferi d’aria dalle finestre (sigillate con lo scotch) e nonostante il condizionatore (datato). Cucina presente ma non l’abbiamo utilizzata.

    We were told to take the shoes off at entrance but the floor, bedsheets, pillows & toilets everything was dirty & stunk. It’s a depressing and dirty place inside out. It was overpriced and I found a clean hotel in the same price with breakfast just about 50 meters from this place. It is a horribly old building and may collapse anytime. It is a place for homeless people maybe. Please don’t look at the reviews which is nothing but bullshit. Don’t stay here.
