Property Description

*** Thanks for choosing us. Shantihome is the first hostel of İzmir which aims to provide a 'shanti' (peaceful) staying especially for travellers from different parts of the world.

*** We have a special breakfast, wifi, laundry, bike rental facilities with donation. Moreover, we have a big terrace to hang out.

*** If you are coming from Selçuk/Ephesus by train you should switch to the IZBAN line at the Airport station. By this way you can get to the Alsancak station which is just 5 minutes by walk to the hostel. If you don't switch the line you will get to the Basmane station which is 20 min. of walk to the hostel.

***Important note: PLEASE confirm your reservation at least a day before your arrival, and please inform us by email of any late or early check in times. Shantihome gets very full during the high season, and we want to make room for everyone, so if we don't hear from you we may have to give your bed to someone else. Our reception opens at 8am and closes at midnight.

***Important note: We have no lockers because we choose not to have any. We would like a place with trust. From our experience, a place with lockers doesn't give a more secure atmosphere, on the contrary creates a feeling of stealing and gives an unnatural value to things.

***But of course if there is really something that you would like to keep, please give to Shantihome staff, and so we'll keep it for you. Thank you.
*If you have any question do not hesitate and ask us via e-mail, mobile phone, hangout and facebook.

*** Our reception is closed at 00.00. We charge 20 TL late check-in fee for the guests who arrive after midnight.

Enjoy your day,

Stay shanti. View House Rules

    Very Good

    Great location for exploring Izmir and the breakfast was really nice. The rooms are quite run down and old-school which was fine but the lack of air con, and only a single small fan for a 5 person room, meant our room was unbearably hot at night. Overall the hostel has a nice hippie atmosphere.

    Good: Good central location. Drinking water available. Staff friendly and helpful - can not fault them. Towel provided. Breakfast incl. Bad: Wifi weak or not working on 2 and 3 floor. Staff charge additional fee for late check in - after midnight. False advertising of photos - the nice clean modern looking dorm is not what you get, I got a crowded, cluttered, stuffy and suffocatingly hot dorm room. The bed and linen was dirty and mosquitos got in the windows. I expected more.

    As one of the more pricey hostels in turkey I was expecting better. At the hostel shoes aren’t worn, and as respect my friend and I took our shoes off and they were STOLEN in the time of us just eating breakfast downstairs! The hostel chooses not to have lockers as they say they want a “place with trust” and that lockers dont give a more “secure atmosphere”. One of the pairs of shoes were brand new. I was very unimpressed by this. Not environment friendly as staffs water bottle PLASTIC WASTAGE!

    The hostel is dirty, cluttered, and cramped. No security lock is available - as mentioned in the description- but when I gave me valuable items to the owner to keep, he just put it in a closet next to door, which to me did not seem very safe. Someone had set up a tent on the rooftop, so we could not hang out there after that guest went to bed. The hostel closes its door at midnight but provides keys for the guest who want to stay late, however, when I asked none was available.
