“Excelent service, nice rooms and very frendly”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

My wife, my daughter and I stayed here for 3 days/2 nights during August 2014. The hostel is a bargain, with good and cool rooms, nice typical turkish food and incredible guest service. The owner (Kadir) is so diligent and helpful, taking care of making good suggestions and reservations. We accepted many of Kadir's suggestions and were pleased with the results.
Very much recommended!

I travelled to Cappadocia in June with my friend and stayed in Elif Star Caves Hotel. Upon arrival we're greeted by the friendly hotel owner, Mr Kadir. He is very knowledgeable about the whole Cappadocia area and suggested a few tours to us. Room is very clean and comfortable and on our second night there, he offered us if we would like to change to other room since there's a vacant without any extra charges. The breakfast is simple and nice. Wifi is available in the room. Would recommend to other travelers as Mr Kadir is very accommodative and would try his best to attend to our need.

My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and loved the place. The owner, Kadir, is great. He helped us with everything we needed, got us great pricing on local activities and even took us on a full day tour of the region for a very reasonable price. He is very knowledgeable and informative. The hotel is very cool in the cave style that is standard in Goreme. The location is good as are the facilities. We would definitely stay here again!

Very well situated hotel with very helpful people.

Kadir gave very good advice and is very knowledgeable. Very helpful as he willingly transport people to bus station and some places of attractions.

Rooms were cleans and comfortable.

Should have dinner there at least once as it is literally home cooked
Overall fantastic experience.

Kadir was very helpful. He arranged balloon tour and guided tours for us. His wife is a great cook and his kids are super cute.
The hotel was converted from a real cave. The view was awesome. The hotel is clean and comfortable.

The location is close to city centre. The owner can speak English and Japanese :-). The staffs are so friendly and kindly. The breakfast served 8am until 10am buffet style. You can book hot air balloon tour, horse riding tour, etc, etc from this hotel. Wifi available with free. The rooms are used caves so really historical. The rooms and bathrooms are so clean.
One thing I don't recommend is Hamam.(there is only one hamam in this city)
Except that, it's perfect!

My sister and I stayed in Elif Star for three nights and were completely delighted. The room was huge and charming, the bathroom was clean, and the owners and staff were warm, friendly, and helpful. The location was also great, only a short walk away from all the hustle and bustle, making it both quiet and convenient. (Just flow along the canal for a few hundred meters.)
