“An affordable hostel that feels like home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Ali´s Guest House is hands down one of the best hostel I´ve ever stayed in. It is perfect for solo travelers on a budget who are looking to meet other travelers and experience all that Cappadocia has to offer. Before I even got to the hostel, Ali sent an e-mail with information about balloon rides, tours, and other attractions, so I was able to plan my trip and make the most of my time in Göreme. The Ali´s (there are 3) were very helpful with booking bus tickets to other cities and recommending restaurants, as well. (Make sure you check out Cappadocian Cuisine, which is a 1 minute walk from Ali´s-the food and service was great!) Ali´s Guest House also offers a delicious free Turkish breakfast and unlimited tea and coffee throughout the day. There are couches and chairs in the front courtyard which is a great place to sit, eat breakfast, and chat with other travelers and locals alike. Overall, I loved this hostel and would recommend it to anyone on a budget who wants to meet other travelers and feel right at home!

This guesthouse was in an awesome location. The staff were all so kind and helpful. They have a birthday cake to one of the guests and shared it with everyone. They helped me to book an overnight bus, tour and balloon ride all at the best prices. The price to stay was so affordable and they even included a basic breakfast. There was a very chilled out environment. I would definitely stay again!

Alis guesthouse's like my second home in Turkey! It's 2 mins walk from Goreme otogar, it's super clean and so comfortable, plus Ali and Ali are the best person to go to if you need any information about Goreme and Cappadocia since they are locals! Never ever arrange for your own tours if you're staying here because they will get you the best tours at the best price! If they're not too busy, they might even bring you around! If you're one of those travelers that is looking for a good place to chill, here's it as well! With the unlimited hot beverage and common area outside, mingling with other people becomes really easy! Had such a great time there! ;D

Wow. Where to start? My girlfriend and I spent two nights at Ali's Guest House and it was unforgettable. The atmosphere of the pansiyon is cozy and so welcoming. We spent great nights on the couches outside, just watching the stars and talking with other travellers and with one of the Ali's (there are three of them!). The location is perfect (just a few minutes from anywhere in Goreme) and the included breakfast is spot on. The dorm rooms we stayed in were clean and cool at night and the washrooms were clean as well. The best part though, as cliche as it sounds, is that staying at Ali's really was like staying with family. We miss them already! It honestly is the quintessential backpacker's paradise and I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you head to Goreme, you have to stay at Ali's. It was amazing.

We stayed in one of the private rooms, and it was amazing! The hostel is beautiful and very well located.

Ali and his whole staff are very helpful and waaay too kind. They gave us some great advice on what to do, where to go, etc. They even drove us to the top of a hill so we could see the sunset, and to the bus station... all for free!

The best that I have been in years, they are so kind, give many adivises, explain everything to see! Booked amazing balloon flight. The accommodation is clean, and the most important, the mattress is very good quality, hard one, good for back.

As a guest house/hostel this place is absolutely perfect, and I would strongly recommend choosing this place!
The facilities (Bath-room, doorm, living room and outdoor area) are very welcoming, clean and comfortable! Very comfortable beds.
When it comes to the staff/owners the first thing they tell you when you arrive is to feel like home -which you will do because they are so incredibly friendly, helpfull and warm. Always available to help, arrange trips/airport-shuttle or whatever. They also know the whole village and have connections to all the touristy things you would desire!
