I came to the Merhaba quite by accident. I missed my bus and went back to my original hotel to find that it had booked up. The owner called his friend who owns the Merhaba, who came and picked me up on his scooter and took me there. No overpriced taxi! I then rented a 3 bed room as a private room for a few lira off the regular private room price advertised. The young guy who worked there was especially cool, spoke good English and chatted with me for a while about computers and Turkey, making me feel at home. The next day he took me on his scooter (again, free of charge though I gladly gave him a tip) right to the door of my bus at the bus station. The rooms were simple and clean, like a well-run hostel; the hot water was plenty hot and the free WiFi was plenty fast for emailing and web browsing. I think they sort of felt bad that I'd missed my bus, and maybe the other hotel felt bad that they couldn't accommodate me again, because I was treated really well and given a lot of help. Even though I usually don't stay in hostels, I would recommend this place without hesitation to anyone who does. The staff at the Merhaba are a rare combination of laid back AND hard working to make you feel at home. And that's just what I needed after feeling like an idiot for missing my bus! :) Thanks!
