Comments  (English):
We were a little hesitant in booking this hostel online because it was so cheap, we thought it was too good to be true (we had just spent 3 times as much on very sketchy accomodations in Marmaris). But it turned out that the hostel is actually a very nice place, with a relaxed atmosphere, great pool, working air conditioning, etc. Its a little outside the centre but in small little Pumakkale that means you may have to walk 1 or minutes max...not an inconvenience at all, and worth it for the less touristy vibe you get for walking the extra 100 meters. What really sets this place apart, however, from most of the other places we'd stayed on our trip was the staff. The family that owns this place are incredible people. Halim will do anything humanly possible to help you get the most of your stay. This is real Turkish Hospitality with a capital H. My girlfriend and I were enjoying our stay when she asccidentally triped and twisted her ankle while sightseeing at Hieropolis (ask Halim to tell you about the archeological dig there...a whole troop of Italian archeologist stay at the Maritim every summer while digging there). Anyway, we needed to spend a few a extra days in Pumakkale, and all I can say is thank God we were staying at the Maritim. Halim and his family did so much to help us while my girlfriend recovered. We really felt at home. When we come back to Turkey, we really look forward to staying at the Maritim again, and would recommend it to anyone. PS make sure to have the traditional Turkish breakfast with the homeade preserves made by Halim's mom. A must!
