Liked: Excellent location. Very clean. Good buffet breakfast. Good resturant.bar downstairs.

Disliked: This was the loudest hostel I've ever stayed in. Great place to stay if you want a night out, but not if you want to get a decent nights sleep. The walls are very thin and sounds seem to echo around the building so you can hear people getting home all throughout the night. Our double room was tiny and only has a window looking out to a central courtyard. The shower in the ensuite was broken, however when we told the staff about this they did get it fixed the same day.

Liked: We loved being in the old city, in that street with the tables going out onto the street. Love the Turkish carpet decor. The staff are so friendly and welcomed us back so warmly. The wifi works well. Our room with private bathroom was great!. Breakfast was basic but my friend who needs gluten free could ask god an omelette which she appreciated

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the location is excellent. A breakfast of cereal, bread, cheese, spreads, tomato and cucumber is provided as is free tea and coffee. The hostel bar/restaurant has a nice atmosphere and provides an easy way to meet other travellers.

Disliked: Each room only has one key, which is left at reception when there is no one in the room, and occasionally other guests would forget to lock the room and return the key. However, the hostel does provide free lockers so that any valuables may be kept safe.

Liked: It was everything it said on the package. Well located, no frills but friendly and a great breakfast included.

Disliked: Would have been nice to have a communal area other than the bar and the supposed roof top sea view was a little over done - basically a small empty terrace.

Liked: The staff made a point of remembering everyone's name and were very helpful. The beds were very comfortable too.

Disliked: Lots of street noise so can be hard to sleep. Big problem is poor security. Other than a limited number of secure lockers, each dorm room only has one key. Everyday after I returned, the room was empty and unlocked, even when I was the only person there. Anyone could walk in off the street and go into the luggage room too.
