Shantihome is for those travellers looking for a home away from home.
We are a small hostel with a friendly, shanti atmosphere and an ideal location in the middle of Alsancak. In this part of İzmir, you will find cafes, street musicians, bars and the famous Kordon seaside promenade.
Shantihome is situated in Alsancak, a lively area with numerous cafes, bars and restaurants, and near the Kordon seaside promenade. We are easy to access from the airport, and it is also possible to catch a ferry from close to the hostel to other parts of Izmir.
If you are intending to visit Efes, Bergama or Foca, it is possible to do these as a day trip from izmir.
We have shared bathrooms and shared kitchen and a colourful, social common room. We are happy to provide information and maps on İzmir and attractions nearby, as well as of course limitless çay.
***We have no lockers because we choose not to have any. We would like a place with trust. From our experience, a place with lockers doesn't give a more secure atmosphere, on the contrary creates a feeling of stealing and gives an unnatural value to things.
***But of course if there is really something that you would like to keep, please give to Shantihome staff, and so we'll keep it for you. Thank you.
