I stayed 4 nights in a dorm room. It was ın a cave very spacious,clean,good matress,and light.
The shared bathrooms are also clean, good shower wıth hot water.
Breakfast is really enough, it comes in a ready plate, very complete.
Staff is friendly and helpful. I booked some tour with them and the tours were with good and professıonal agencies. The ballon tour with Voyager Ballons was amazing. The pilot was very good and kept me confident about the flight.

I stayed in the dorm with 2 more friends for 2 nights last weekend. The rooms were very clean and the shared bathroom too. The breakfast was simple but nice, there was bread,butter, honey, praline,cheese, dried fruits, watermelon, an egg, a piece of ham. It was a great start for the day. The beds were bunk beds, a bit crowded (16 beds per room) but still it was mostly quiet and tidy. The location was very good only 2 min walk from the restaurants and shops in Goreme.

- We did the hiking tour which was organised by the hostel, but the information from the guide was at least poor and we didn't do so much hiking, more like walking and stopping. It was good that we had a local to show us the path, but don't expect nothing more.

As for the hostel I recommend it an I would definetely go again.

We stayed in the 3-sleeper room with private bathroom. The room was big enough for us to move around in and had three single beds. Every morning we'd step out almost right onto one of the terraces where breakfast is served. Breakfast is a the typical boiled eggs, cheese, tomato, olive and cucumber and rolls. It's not buffet so each person gets a plate with all these things on. I'm not sure if you can ask for seconds but what they gave was sufficient for me.

The staff was very friendly and helpful - Cevat was there to help us most of the time. He's cool. The location is awesome as well because it's around the corner from the main area where we could book hot-air balloon rides and other trips and also find places to eat. It's within walking distance to almost everything including the Hamam (Turkish bath). We were told we can walk from Dorm Cave to the Goreme Open Air Museum - yes, you can.... but it wasn't a slow stroll away - and in the heat it can get hectic.

Room Tip: If the three-sleeper is anything to go by, I'm sure the other rooms are just as great. The dorm...

We stayed in the three beds room with private bath at the Dorm Cave in early May. At 95 euro per room for two nights, it was the best deal in Goreme at the time. One advice, through the dorm Café, booked the pick up and drop off service from and to the airport. It is worth the 20 Lira one way per person. Other tours including the balloon ride can also be done through the dorm cave. No commission at a lower price than listed. Good deal.

Our room was situated at the top right corner of the facility. Very clean and comfortable. The private bathroom is adequate and modern. Except for a one time dogs barking and the usual call for prayer at night, the area is pretty quiet. No complains.

the free Turkish breakfast served every morning at the top deck on sunny day was just over the top.

I stayed here for only 1 night. I wished i could stay longer but my schedule was really tight. This hostel was awesome. The dorm was clean, there were enough power outlets for every bed and the bathrooms were really clean! The room was also cosy at night. If you are coming to cappadocia and you are not sure about where to go and what to do, worry not. The hostel guy, Cevat can help arrange everything for you when you arrive. Cevat was kind and friendly enough to help arrange for a hot air balloon tour for me and my roommates and he also helped book the green tour for us. Breakfast is served upstairs on the terrace. You can walk to Goreme town in 2-3 minutes to find restaurants and shops, and buy souvenirs if you like. Walking to the bus station also should not take more than 5 minutes.

I stayed here two nights. The accommodation in the dorm was simple, yet elegant because it is built into the side of a hill/cave. The exposed stone and tile are very nice. There is heating so we were comfortable during the chilly nights. The courtyard gives access to restrooms and showers and free breakfast and lounging are on a charming terrace overlooking the village. Staff members are knowledgeable and helpful.

If you're flying in from Kayseri, ask them to arrange a shuttle and you should be able to get it much cheaper than waiting until you arrive where the taxi drivers are almost criminally expensive (as with any such small airport).

Overall wonderful experience and a great place to meet an extremely diverse bunch of travelers if you're traveling alone.

Room Tip: I can only vouch for the dorms, which are very nice!

This place Is great to stay on a budget. The staff is friendly and the dorms were quite clean (we stayed in a 14 bed dorm room). The heater worked wonderfully and even the bathrooms had heated floors! The breakfast was quite decent and the roof-top sitting areas don't offer the best view but they are very relaxing and enjoyable. Coffee and tea was always available. WIFI was really reliable. They even held onto our bags for us for the day after check out. This place is great if you don't really need a whole lot but want to be in a good location. We met lots of great people there! I'd definitely stay here again!
