“A great base for exploring Ephesus”
Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

We stayed 3 nights at Atilla's Getaway, and it was a great base for visiting Ephesus, as well as nearby towns and beaches. Atilla and everyone working there was friendly and helpful- there was a large tour group staying a couple of the nights we were there, but we were always well looked after. We were shown a hiking trail to Ephesus through the mountains at the back of Atilla's, which made for a more interesting journey than along the road! Meals were great portion sizes, and delicious- especially exciting was the breakfast menu, where we were able to choose a breakfast option (french toast was delish). Highly recommend staying here, especially if you are coming during summer, when you can make the most of the pool!

Booked this place looking at the review and pictures on trip advisor. Turned out to be exactly as in the pictures, nice little place to relax in. Small cabin rooms, comfortable and clean. Nice pool. The breakfast is pretty good, but standard fare. Point to note is that its not really in selcuk town, its outside of it on the main road. You can hike from here all the way upto the chapel at Virgin Mary's and then hitch a ride to ephesus.

Pretty decent place to stay in, also, you end up using attilla's own currency that you need to buy off like chips in a casino, i still got some over which i forgot to spend

I was taken by taxi out to Atilla's Getaway for the usual 15 lira. When I arrived I discovered they were temporarily closed due to a recent fire and Atilla told me that the taxi drivers in town knew this and were being underhanded. He then proceeded to absolutely insist on compensating me the 15 Lira's and arrange for a drive back into Selcuk and a stay at Artemis Hotel. I refused the money and discovered two days later upon checkout at the Artemis that he had paid them the 15 Liras and had it taken off my bill. How often does that happen? I owe you one Atilla and a great big thanks!

This is a great place to stay for couples and backpackers. I went there with my girlfriend in September 2013, it was the last stop on our holiday, we stayed 5 nights, it was the perfect place to relax, play games, meet other travellers, the staff are really laid back and will do anything to help. Atilla got me a great discount on diving, we only paid £15 for a dive, Really great value! The food is really great, you don't get a choice on the food at night but I was never disappointed, I really enjoyed my stay here and I would highly recommend it do anyone.

I really liked the fact we were out in the sticks, it was really nice at night and the staff are happy to drop off/pick up.

A very convenient and friendly place to stay at, to see the fantastic ruins of Ephesus. Provides free pick-up and shuttle service both from Selcuk and Kusadasi. Delik is a very gracious and warm hostess who personally looks into the comfort of guests.
Rooms are basic but clean. We stayed in a double-room with attached bath upstairs. For rooms with unattached baths, the bathrooms seem distant.
The food is just excellent - simple fare but fresh and very flavorful.
Can be noisy into the night with the young crowd that dominates the guest-list.
However, overall a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the countryard are quieter.

Atilla's provides a great base for exploring Epherus and a number of other nearby attractions. The place is like a family home with the common area resembling a backyard. The hostel provides wonderful meals and has a great vibe. it is a great place to relax and meet other travellers. The rooms are clean and comfortable The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much. They collected us from the bus station, cooked delicious meals, assisted in booking bus tickets/tours and provided general advice. The value for money was exceptional. Overall, we had a fantastic time and wished we could have stayed longer.
