I stayed in this hostel (Yes it's a hostel) with my parents in early May of 2014. The owners are two best friends who are an extremely helpful and friendly pair.
We arrived late at night and one of the owners welcomed us and helped us take the luggage to our room. The breakfast next morning was also cooked by them and you could just take the cereal, bread with honey and jam or ask them to prepare you any egg of your choice.
I had been in touch with the owners over email and they had booked the red & green tours along with the baloon ride for us. I found their service to be extremely efficient and never did I see them being grumpy.
The rooms don't have a kitchenette or a mini-bar, but you can ask them for an electric kettle for preparing tea/ coffee. A washing machine is there on the 1st floor along with detergent, which can be used by anyone. We had booked the only private room (rest of them are dorm rooms), and thus had no issues with a shared toilet.
There is a nice restaurant about a minute's walk down the slope from this hostel, which is run by a sweet Turkish family, where daddy prepares fresh bread, mommy cooks and the daughter serves. At about 2-3 minutes walk from the hostel, you can find a nice pub called Fat Boys, and another 2 minute's walk from there will take you to the main Goréme bus stand. A mid sized convenience store is also right across the street, although I suggest you stock up with toothpaste, tooth brush, soap, teabags, coffee and sugar sachets etc. before you come here, as Goréme is more expensive than the bigger cities.
This hostel is truly in the center of the town and if you are looking for a fairly reasonable place with affordable prices, you can not go wrong here. Make sure you ask the hotel owners to book you your desired tours well in advance, as their prices go up closer to your arrival dates. Plus they get you much better deals than you can get online or through an agent.
If I ever go back to Goréme, this is the place I will stay at.
