The people who run this hostel are genuinely fantastic - ultra warm and caring, and will work extremely hard to accommodate you. The second thing is the food is AWESOME. Not hostel awesome, just awesome. I have attached a photo of breakfast. Drinks are priced in line with other hostels. Every bit of this hostel appears to be immaculately clean and for that I give it high marks.
It's important to remember that this is a hostel/pension, not a hotel. For 35TL you can have a dorm in high season, or 60TL for a private room. At 1/3 of the price of a hotel, you should not expect hotel facilities, but if you have spent some time traveling Turkey's hostels, you will immediately find that the beds, wifi, a/c, and food are among the best you can find anywhere.
The one thing I will say is that as a solo backpacker, there is very little community in this hostel, despite the fantastic rooftop terrace where everybody eats. I think that there are mostly families and couples that come stay here as despite the place being almost full, there was almost nobody ever around to talk to. This isn't really the fault of the hostel but is worth knowing about.
If I was coming back to Kas, I would DEFINITELY come back to Meltem.
