“Great for Budget Travelers”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

This hotel/hostel was a great value in Cappadocia, which can be expensive hotel-wise. The location was perfect, right up in the hills with the fairy chimneys. We had a private room, which was spacious enough for two, nicely decorated, and kept very clean. The only slight problem with the room was the shower in our bathroom - there was no shower curtain and the head was pointed straight at the door, so the whole bathroom got wet unless you used the hand-held function. Also be aware that the call to prayer at 5am is very loud - earplugs worked great though.

The staff was very helpful in giving us recommendations and helping us book tours and tickets. One guy even drove us down to the bus station and helped buy tickets for us. We were also able to use the breakfast room and hostel bathrooms after we checked out - a very nice amenity between our morning check-out and overnight bus. I would definitely recommend this hotel/hostel for budget travelers, especially since the service was so great!

Stayed here for two nights in July and wished it was longer! Great room in a cave, clean, comfy bed, awesome shower, and good location. Breakfast each morning was simple but just right, and the view was good too. I booked a day tour with them and it was the perfect amount of stuff for one day, a sunset horse ride, and a balloon ride. All of which I'd definitely do again given the chance! Outdoor museum is also a must see.

We stayed in the mixed dorm, the cave dorm was so cosy, clean and really very comfortable. It is close to the main café, bars and restaurants of Goreme- ideally located. We arrived early in the morning, they let us leave our bags in the reception area, and also let us book on the tour for that morning and pay when we got back as we wouldn't have time to get to the atm. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I would recommend booking the tours through them - as they sort it all out for you, less stress!
Shared bathrooms- there can be a little bit of a queue as there are only 4-5 bathrooms. Just so you are aware, the bathrooms are "wet rooms" - so no separation for the shower, sink, toilet. But just make sure you use the heated towel rail to hang up your stuff and it won't get wet.
The breakfasts are great! It was really lovely to eat outside in the autumn sunshine.
Would definitely stay here again!

Everything is fine with this accomodation. What I liked most was the friendly staff. It is located close to the city center, bathroom very clean and modern. Nice atmosphere in the dorm cave room. Great restaurant just next door.

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...
