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

    Staff was really helpful and friendly. Location is perfect. It is five-min-walk to the train station and harbour of Alsancak. Hostel has vintage vibes all around. The room was clean and bed was cozy. We stayed one night and we really enjoyed our stay.

    We stayed in Shantihome Hostel for 1 night and it's got our satisfaction. It's clean and is located in a great part of the city in which you can use Izban line to access city center easily. The staff was nice and polite and except that noise of night clubs near the hostel, there was not any other problem with that.

    I liked the hippie feeling at this hostel. Everything is vegetarian/vegan (you can't cook meat). The breakfast was great, with a nice mix of eggs, veggies and fruits. The staff was helpful with my questions. My room's window was just above a bar and while it was noisy with the window open, it was fine with the window closed. Hopefully, I was alone in the 3 mixed bedroom as I could imagine it could have got quite hot with 3 persons total. Nevertheless,I would not hesitate to recommend this hostel

    Pretty good place in a good location, easy to get around from here and relatively quiet at night. Staff were super friendly. Big time hippie vibe, all the food is vegetarian/vegan. No lockers is strange but I understand their reasoning

    Great location right in the middle of Alsancak, meaning that bars, the seafront etc. are a five minute walk away. Nice hippie vibe. The staff were also very helpful.

    Extremely friendly and helpful staff, location perfect and easy to find. Still the dorm is very small and the window looks into a courtyard which is common to a bar, so it got pretty loud at night so earplugs are a must. Even though the room is tiny, you have quite some space in the bed with a few shelves and a bit of privacy as they have curtains.

    We booked a three bed mixed dorm as two younger women and were sharing with an older man who was working at the hostel/very settled in the room which was a bit uncomfortable. The front door of the hostel was left open and no one had keys, our door didn’t lock/there was no security within the hostel. There was club music which was loud and no curtain. There wasn’t enough bathrooms for the number of people staying and they weren’t that clean. Friendly staff member who checked us in late.
