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 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

    Shantihome was a very pleasure experience. All the staff were super friendly and I loved the common lounge area where we could sit and chat. The breakfast in the morning was incredible, always a variety of foods to choose. The location is also very good for exploring the city and enjoying the nightlife.

    Very welcoming, hospitable and kind group of staff, there to make your stay enjoyable. Located just behind the main promenade but not overly loud and close to all transport and food options you’ll need. Booked 1 night and ended up spending several.

    Very good location. I was a bit disappointed by the 1st breakfast (we had soup) since everyone praised their large choice. 2nd breakfast was much nicer, I feel like it depended on the person responsible of the hostel that day. Great recommendations for day trips. Toilet was…unstable? Like it was about to fall. Found a (dead) cockroach in the staircase.

    This place needs updating to be on a level with most other hostels. No aircon in the rooms is a massive issue & locking the front door at 12 is strange for a hostel. The vibe is unusual as some staff members come across quite unfriendly while others were helpful. Internet basically doesn't work anywhere but on ground floor. Really decent free breakfast was the highlight for me.

    The main good thing about this is the perfect location. Really didnt enjoy the vibe though, hard to meet people and weird rules such as “no lockers for trust” and “no meat in the fridge”. Other thing is we were told that breakfast was until 10:30 but when we went down at 10 there was nothing left. Room was super hot and no AC.
