Pamukkale (which means "cotton castle" in Turkish) is a town in the district of Denizli. Pamukkale is located about twenty kilometers northeast of the provincial capital Denizli. Pamukkale has a bit more than two thousand inhabitants. Pamukkale received its name from the limestone terraces, which have developed over the millennia by calcareous thermal sources and are a major international tourist attraction today. The terraces are on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.
In the sixties, people began to build hotels above the sinter terraces to make Pamukkale attractive to the burgeoning tourism in Turkey. To access the hotels, a road was cut crosswise through the sinter terraces. Ultimately, that damaged the main attraction, the travertine itself. When these problems increased in the early nineties, UNESCO threatened to delete Pamukkale from the World Heritage List; a large-scale rescue program was launched, and today, the access to the terraces is strict and intruders are punished. You can also visit the ancient city of Hierapolis. It has a large necropolis with tombs; a Temple of Apollo and Plutonium; a large theater (which can seat fifteen thousand people); the Philip's Church; and baths, gymnasium, and large parts of the city wall.
Pamukkale hostels are quite abundant for a town of its size; the presence of the famous thermal springs explains why there are so many Pamukkale hostels, as this natural phenomenon is visited by thousands of tourists each year. In fact, the location of your Pamukkale hostels plays no role as houses are not allowed very close to the springs and the town is so small that you can walk it all on foot for ten minutes. The prices of hostels in Pamukkale are very low and the conditions are more than satisfactory. What is more, if you pay a bit more, you can have an amazing hostel, so finding a good hostel in Pamukkale is not a big problem.

The shower was too small, and the water pressure was not that good." … "You get what you pay for ... - I guess you get what you pay for, the place was very cold and the bathrooms were horrible. But everyone was very friendly, next time I will spend a few extra bucks and go somewhere else."...

Meltem Guesthouse & Backpackers Inn
"There are many good things about this hostel -- it is as cheap as they come, the rooms and pool are nice, good location, and the hotel manager was quite friendly. On the negative side, the hostel appears to have gone downhill since its high recommendation in Let's Go 2003. The only guests we saw when we stayed there in late June 2006 were a number of women of questionable profession. And if you stay there, don't order the "bottled water" at...

Hotel Dort Mevsim
"The facilities are fine, although hot water's limited. I would rate this place much more highly if we weren't grossly overcharged for our meals. If you go, make sure you ask the prices beforehand if you decide to eat there as they don't have a menu and you don't want to be surprised as we were. This was the only place we stayed in in Turkey that didn't provide free breakfast, and in addition we got charged 8 lira ($6) for a tiny bowl of soup...

Pamukkale Travel Tips & Suggestions
Pamukkale Village was a great place to stay between Cappadocia and Ephesus/Selchuk. Take a tour to the terraces or to Aphrodisias for the best experience.
— Harry Larry Barry
We highly recommend the white water rafting -- it was the best day we had in Pamukkale.
Pamukkale is okay, but spare the trip to the "red water source" - it is nothing to speak of, rather disappointing. With a little time try White water Rafting! The guy with the paraglider on top of the terraces runs excellent trips to a place near Denizli. Great fun!
We had a great three days in Pamukkale. A great day trip is Aphrodisias, it has a great stadium and museum.
