Default Turkey hostel site?

Guys, can't seem to find any sites that have reviews (or listing for that matte) of hostels in Turkey, aside from Istanbul.

Does anyone know any site I could check out??

Thanks!

Ok on hostelworld.com Kusadasi had one guesthouse that got a rating of 92% and was reviewed by 10 people. It is Sezgin's Gueshouse and costs TRY 11.94.

On hostelz.com, Selcuk had a few that were reviewed (with 4 to 5 stars) that are fairly priced. As I am not too familiar with turkey, is selcuk and ephesius near each other or something? Everytime I google ephesius it comes up selcuk...

Tripadvisor.com has some reviews for Izmir, though many of them are hotels and a bit more spendy. If you dig around you may get lucky though!

I looked all over, but not many places have reviews.

Hope I helped at all!

There are a few in Canakkale that are decent. It's not a big city, so you probably won't find anything too appalling. My recommendation is to stay at one that shows Gallipoli (the Mel Gibson movie) at night, because they will probably arrange a tour (or transport) to the park directly from the hostel. And you'll be able to meet a ton of people who are probably doing exactly what you're doing. Same for Troja.

Hey, thanks lemlern and Jess... I'll check those sites out.

yeah, my LetsGo tells me you can talk from Seluk to Epheusus.. which I plan to do


Or maybe... I should just not book and just see what happens? Wow, that thought actually scares me, I have never, ever, not booked something.
