Ferah Pension - Monica's Place Reviews

Nice place, very nice owners.

Bedbugs and not what was advertised

We reserved a room thinking we would get was displayed in the pictures. Instead, for full price we got a small, dark room in the back corner of the property. The water was not very hot and rather than a normal shower they had a wet room, meaning you need to remove the toilet paper from the room before you shower off or else it will be soaked. Wort was there were bedbugs. Woke up with blood on the sheets and itching like crazy. All the bites were in a row as which is the telltale mark of bedbugs. The owner was nice and the garden was ok, but I left feeling ripped off and itchy.

This is simply the best hostel/hotel in Fethiye. Wonderfully relaxing, great owners, and if you are looking for any hotel in fethiye, go for this one.

The two coolest Turkish Pension owners

My wife and I stayed in this pension in lovely Fethiye for about 3 days. The pension owners (Monica and Tuna) were some of the nicest people we met in a country renowned for its hospitality and were extraordinarily helpful with advice about the area (especially on how to avoid being overcharged for boat cruises and day excursions). The central court area is a wonderful garden setting, all rooms are decorated with Monica's paintings and are very clean and airy. Great place, great people.


Home away from home

Monica and Tuna will do their absolute utmost in order to ensure that your stay is everything that you want it to be. This is a blessing in Turkey, where people can be deceitful and swindle you out of your money. We recognised that we had arrived upon a gem in Ferah Pension, as Tuna is well connected and can book trips (definitely do a boat trip) and offer you travel advice without expecting you to pay him for it. Read the guestbooks that they have displayed. Our room smelled and looked fresh and clean when we arrived, and though the place is small and humble, it is very well maintained. Monica's sexy dinners are the best home cooking that we had in three weeks in Turkey, and the pool, though deceptively small, was over a metre and a half deep and a blessing in the hot August weather. Coming from Boston, a few minute walk into town was nothing to us. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.


a hostel like an oasis. the rooms are great and the communal areas are even better. lush and overgrown outdoor areas, a tiny pool, tables, benches, cushions -- a place hard to leave.


This is by far the best hostel that I've stayed at. We showed up at about 11:30 p.m. without a reservation. (This was an unexpected stop on our journey due to issue with the bus schedules). When we asked if they had extra beds for the night, he said "We'll take care of it. Your bags look heavy, you can leave them there and I'll make you some tea." He introduced us to all the people staying there and before we knew it, four days had passed and we were still loving our stay in Fethiye. They will set up all sorts of activities for you, such as a cruise and paragliding, both of which I recommend. Accommodations are clean and simplistic, great meals offered, splash pool, great lounge area, friendly staff.


Ferah Hostel is run by owners Tuna and Monica and consequently has a very welcoming and homey atmosphere which is heightened by the presence of their gorgeous cats, kittens, and dog.

There are three types of accommodation available at Ferah -- a ten-bed dorm room with spectacular views down to the sea through floor-to-celling windows, private rooms off the downstairs shared courtyard (which could be very noisy in peak season), and private rooms in the old house. All rooms, including the dorm, have ensuite bathrooms with showers. The private rooms all contain reverse-cycle air conditioning, which in peak season costs an additional fee to activate. The dorm comes with fans for summer, but no heating for winter.

Bathrooms are small and basic and in private rooms separated from the sleeping area by a shower curtain. Water is hot and the bathrooms are kept very clean. In the dorm, the bathroom is separated from the room by a sturdy door, however it is small and demand in peak times may cause problems.

Breakfast is included no matter what type of room you get and apple tea comes out hot and fresh all day. Dinner is available during most of the year and consists of traditional Turkish cuisine cooked fresh by Monica. Portions are large and the price is reasonable, however you will get a cheaper meal in town. In peak season, dinner is offered every night but in low season it's only offered occasionally based on the demand.

There is a decent amount of shared communal space at Ferah Hostel, but if the weather is not nice there is no good, warm space in which to relax. Communal space consists of the dining and bar area, a small sunken couch area adjoining the dining space and an enclosed reading room at the front of the hostel overlooking the street.

To get to Ferah from the Fethiye otogar simply go to the metro bus desk and ask for a complimentary lift. Alternately cross out of the otogar and catch the Karagozler dolmuc and get off at the Jandarma outpost. Cross the road, walk uphill for ten meters turn right at the first street and the hostel is about twenty meters along the road on your left.

Ferah Pension - Monica's Place Reviews from the Web

All the family was super friendly and helpful, I was hanging out with their daughter as well, all of them made me feel very welcome. I really would recommend, not only for the services itself (which are very good), but most of all for Tuna and his family.


Liked: Everything! The family are fantastic, couldn't be more helpful or genuinely friendly. Monica's cooking is to die for, I would highly recommend the evening meal, book in the morning and don't eat anything in the day to make room! The place is a paradise to relax in, gardens beautiful,water features calming and small but adequate pool lovely to cool off in. I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough, am sorry to leave and will definitely return one day. Didn't like: The only small downside is a short but very steep hill to get here,OK for younger travellers but hard for an old one like me!


Liked: Everything! From the minute I walked into the hostel, hot and tired and received a great welcome in an idyllic garden room I knew that I would enjoy my stay. After a welcome cup of apple tea and information about what to do in and around Fethyie I was shown past a beautiful water feature up to a comfortable room with the small but well maintained pool outside it with sun loungers and a seating area, surrounded by another beautiful garden. The whole atmosphere was one of peace and tranquillity. The breakfast was great and I ate 4 evening meals there cooked by Monica which were absolutely delicious and very reasonable. She is a fantastic cook and you can tell that she does it with passion and love. Great place,great family, great experience. Didn't like: Nothing at all.


Tuna & Monica have really done a great job in putting together this Pension!! You walk in and it has the most chilled out vibe to it with overhead vines couches to laze on and a pooll up the top, Breakfast was great and Tunas recommendations for tours and sights to see we're excellent, I stayed in a 5 bedroom dorm and had views of the harbour from the balcony!!


great relaxed feel, awesome outdoor area to chill out after a long day in the sun which tuna and monika have either sorted out for you or given great advice on the right spot to go to in fethiye. couldnt think of a better place to stay while hanging out on the south coast.


i really enjoyed staying at this hotel. the staff are lovely and friendly and really helpful with booking day trips and transport information! would definitely go back there, nice and relaxed and has a pool to cool down in at the end of the day!!
