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 with donation.We also have laundry service for 40 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 50 TL late check-in fee for the guests who arrive after midnight.

Enjoy your day,

Stay shanti. View House Rules

    I only stayed at Shantihome for one night but had a very pleasant experience. It is a homely welcoming place. Staff were very kind and helpful. Great AC. Filtered water tap. Great location. Wish i had stayed longer

    Good atmosphere in this hostel. The staff is adorable, super keen to help, very sweet. The food there is amazing too. The kitchen is well equipped (honestly best kitchen I have ever seen in hostels ; only vegeterian food allowed though). My dorm was quite okay, the delux bed was very comfy cosy and private. Bathrooms are a bit old but overall I had an amazing stay and I stayed shanti :)

    Nice enough place to get some rest. Don’t expect any socialising or anything as it is quiet and the communal area is very small. Host is a nice guys. Location is great as near to train and also the ferry.

    Who writes and reviews these hostels?! This place is an absolute dump and the staff are not only rude, they're just plain offensive. On my last night there, I had to sleep / exist the entire night outside, because I was wasn't provided with a key, or explained the key procedure?! Seriously, do not stay at this place. At your rosey eyes peril
