I recently booked the Bodrum Backpackers for 3 nights ( 9 to 11th of August) with total deposit of 26.24 CAN $ divided in two separate transactions:
We had reserved this hostel with deposit but the hostel was full due to HUGE overbooking. Hotel manager proposed we sleep on roof outside with no beds where 6 other people were already sleeping without any refunds.
When we said we had already paid and complained, they offered a shared room with one of the hostel employees (we had booked a private). The room was very messy and not clean but the hostel was saying that all the hotels in Bodum were full. As the Internet wasn't working, we paid a night at the hostel (80 turkish lira). In truth, there were many other places available in Bodrum - as we could see from an internet cafe nearby and by walking in the city and asking around (pensions-b&bs).
When we came back from our walk, our beds and room had been used by other people. For that reason, we went to another city (Turtugeis) and stayed at a friends instead. We asked for a refund but the hotel only gave half the money back (40 turkish lira).
We have also not been reimbursed for our deposit (for 3 nights) and the rest of our first night.
