Sabah Pansiyon is conveniently located inside the Old City of Antalya. The staff are friendly and helpful. We arrived very early on an overnight bus from Cappadocia and the staff allowed us to check in early. The hostel provides an excellent buffet-style breakfast that's served in a location across the alley from the hostel. The breakfast is typical Turkish fare -- hard-boiled eggs, cucumber, tomato, a variety of Turkish breads, feta cheese, tubs of chocolate spreads and jams, fruit, cereal, and tea and coffee.
Sabah is easy to locate when following the directions provided by the hostel. From the main bus station, take a local bus that is going to the Old City and get off at the exit just after Hadrian's Gate. Backtrack to enter the Old City through Hadrian's Gate and stay on the main road until you see the sign for the hostel on the right side after the "Broken Minaret." From the hostel, the entire Old City is easily walkable. It is a few minutes' walk to the beach. Kiosks, shops, bars, and restaurants are right outside the door. Despite this excellent location, the hostel is quiet and one can easily get a good, quiet night's sleep.
Rooms and Bathrooms
There is a four-bed mixed dorm and a variety of private rooms available. The hostel will also use private rooms as additional dorms if the dorm room is booked and people already staying in it choose to extend their stay. The rooms are not overly spacious, but it's sufficient. There are no lockers, but the rooms are secure and lockable with a key. The beds and pillows are comfortable and towels are provided. The shared bathrooms are clean and with hot water and there's enough space to change clothes.
There are numerous sitting areas around the hostel. The main floor has a nice outdoor area with tables and chairs. The second floor has an additional lounge area with floor seating and lots of cushions. There are ample power outlets for charging electronics and good Wi-Fi that reaches all areas, including the rooms. There is a book exchange and the hostel offers luggage storage. This is not a party hostel and the overall atmosphere of the hostel can be a bit lacking. The outdoor area is pleasant, but not necessarily conducive to meeting other travelers.
Overall, Sabah is a pleasant hostel and a good pick, especially given its excellent location inside the Old City.
