I struggled with giving this place a 3 or a 4. It's a hostel, no bones about it. Had I known that going in, I would have most likely given it a 4. While it wasn't amazing, I'm not sure there is truly a better cheap rate option in town.
First: and this was not there fault, but people should know this. The bus shuttle from the airport is a joke. We were taken to a van and then we sat for 70 minutes waiting for other people, before we finally got pissed and got a taxi. They tried to claim it was b/c someone lost their luggage, however even after those people made it to the van the driver still left us for 10 more minutes. Complete nightmare.
Anyway, the hotel. The best part was the breakfast. They had choices, which is not that common in travel. The french toast was a welcome break from traditional turkish breakfasts. The staff was all very friendly, and they gave great advice for hiking.
We thought they did not give us towels or soap, but really it was just in drawers in the rooms/bathroom, which was odd. Also, the lighting was not that great - so we kept the door open a lot. Lastly, they only cleaned the room when we asked, not everyday. Also,great outdoor seating area for the evenings. A cheap option, just know it's a hostel.
Also: A word to the wise. I know I've been flamed by companies for this comment before, but please, especially in Cappadocia pay attention to the number of reviews people have. If you look at a lot of the hotels and restaurants most people have one or two reviews. It's clearly a very common practice to write their own reviews to bolster their ranking.
