A friend and I stayed 3 nights at Shoestring in an lovely ensuite private room with a private balcony and a beautiful view - but what made our experience truly awesome was the staff - especially Oktay. We started chatting with him as we checked in, and we were telling him about the rest of our trip - within minutes he became our one-man trip planner, and he really helped us nail down our itinerary for the rest of our stay in Turkey - including calling multiple people to check on bus times, plane ticket prices, a hostel recommendation for our next town, etc. By the time we left the office 40 minutes later, we had almost the entire rest of our trip figured out. The man knows his stuff, and he was so helpful, and gave great advice. The entire rest of our trip turned out perfectly, and we have him to thank for that.
During our stay we also witnessed Oktay chase down a bus for miles after a guest left some luggage on it (he got it!) We witnessed him immediately point some travelers to a different hostel nearby when they said they were looking for the cheapest dorm beds in town. Basically, Oktay is an incredibly nice and honest guy, he consistently goes above and beyond for his guests, and he became a great friend over the course of our stay.
A truly one of a kind experience in a one of a kind place! Cannot recommend enough.
