I was supposed to stay at Atilla's for two nights, but ended up staying for four as it was so great. I wish I was there now.
Atilla, Carlos, the family and the dogs have created a small eden overlooking Ephesus - with a brilliant bar, lovely lounges, a perfect, pretty pool (although my god it is cold!), and a really great, warm, friendly atmosphere.
I loved that Atilla's was such a friendly, chilled place: Every evening everyone at the hostel got together, along with the hostel crew and their local friends, to eat the fabulous dinner that the mummies cooked, and then everyone would chill out or party around the fire until the wee hours.
The rooms are basic but nice: they're clean, pleasant, the beds are comfy and my shower was hot and powerful. Great value for money.
One family I met said they hadn't stayed there as it was slightly out of town - but that really wasn't a problem, as the lovely Carlos was happy to pick up or drop people off, it was nice to be slightly out in the country and the views over Selcuk are fabulous!
The only problem with Atilla's Getaway is that it has ruined me for everywhere else. I spent another five days travelling through Turkey and nowhere could come close to being as good as Atilla's - and the friends that I made whilst at Atilla's, that I met later on said the same. We all love Atilla's. Can't wait to go back.
