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 and it is 10 tl.We also have laundry service for 20 tl and wifi, 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

    Oh my my! 500 words are less. The place was really fantastic and right in the heart of izmir next to all transport facilities. If you are traveling first time don’t worry it’s the best place, Uygar was there from staff at reception and that person is really love he teaches you everything ways, transportation etc. It’s really peaceful place and clean plus friendly atmosphere. Perfect location perfect arrangement and perfect Uygar! That person is love! I got some new friends there too! 10/10.

    I really enjoyed my stay here, it was such a relaxed vibe and close to lots of restaurants, cafes & bars. The home made breakfast was delicious and they have a filtered water tap! They do not have lockers or keys to dorm rooms but I felt my belongings were safe throughout my entire stay. Really recommend this place.

    Ok, had to rewrite my review, 500char. WTF? Pro: comfy common area (not too big though) nice rooftop, hippy-rainbow-atmosphere, Location, Breakfast(donation-based), real alternative(not hipster-fake) Downsides: Internet, Some people seemed to live there, my room was quite full with someones stuff, maybe volunteers should get a closet on the rooftop? As a traveller,however, you might need to be aware that your fancy-hostel-hipster expectations might class with the hostels real hippyish character

    I just had one night stay, arrived there at 8-9am-ish by night bus I was exhausted but the host was very welcoming and also let me have breakfast :) There is no locker neither key for the room so that anyone can go in-and-out (i stayed 8 mixed dorm). So stealing might happen as in other comments but didnt happen to me though. Facility was basic and something was broken but fixed quickly though (i guess) Overall it was good to stay :)
