in the center of Alsancak
Located in the heart of the city, Shantihome Hostel offers colourful rooms and free WiFi. It is located within a minute’s walk away from the nightlife hotspot and the Kordon.
Shantihome is İzmir’s first hostel. We offer a a friendly, colourful space to meet other people on the road. Our shanti environment is located in the middle of Alsancak, a lively and historically rich area with eating places, bars and artistic performances. We are also close to the Kordon seafront promenade, where you can watch the sun set listening to street musicians.
And a shanti multi-kulti environment provides you guidance for the road and surrounding İzmir.
Shantihome is 320m from the metro station (which will bring you directly from the airport) and 200m from Alsancak pier from which you can take a ferry to other parts of İzmir. İzmir is perfectly located for day trips to Ephesus, Pergamum, Sardis and Çeşme.
Dear friends, welcome home.
Just recently, we opened our doors for travelling friends. Over time this place is going to create its own style by attending to your needs. To provide shanti-home-mood for all of us we share some general ideas.
We prefer having bare feet or slippers inside the building. In the common areas we do not smoke. In the salon we listen to music and hang out. After midnight we prefer no music or music at low volume.
To make some small contributions for our friends who earn their living from separating garbage, we put our plastic, paper, glass and cans in sorted bags so they can take it from here.
There is a SHARING BOX in the salon’s entrance, for books or simpler things like your no longer wanted shampoo or sunscreen, for those who might need them.
There is a shared kitchen, and we definitely support and encourage you to prepare your food. Organised and spontaneous happenings are always welcome. You can prepare lunch or dinner or similar things. It will certainly contribute to less consuming and an opportunity to feel more comfortable since we cooperate with each other. In order to sustain the sharing environment you can contribute to the expenses.
Breakfast is available in the morning for each guest. We can eat together and share the morning and make a good start to the day.
Free tea, herbs and drinking water is available in the kitchen. Use the kitchen as you need, but please try to leave it CLEAN and TIDY. There is a dishwasher that you can put your plates, glass and cutlery into.
In the toilets and the bathrooms we try to be as respectful as we can towards others specially about cleanliness. That means if you had lovely water party while showering just wipe it away. Of course we are checking them out regularly as well, but can’t keep an eye on all the time.
There are many empty places and walls to be contributed with the colours and shapes coming from your inner beauty. Do not hesitate sharing your ideas about painting/recreating/redesigning any corner of our home.
These are the living guidelines we started sharing with friends but none of them are strictly definite! They can be changed with your brilliant suggestions. As life continues to float, things change and we are open to whatever it brings…Like you coming from somewhere around the world.
Enjoy your stay among friends!
