In Bahaus Hostel Resort , a dream has come true -an unspoilt beach, lake, river and ancient city all meet to create a memorable stay.

There is something for everyone at Bahaus Hostel Dalyan Resort. For the lazy, you dont need to so anything, but just relax in the most comfortable hostel. For the more adventurous, we can organise trekking, mountain biking, white water rafting or snorkelling. Or for those who want to do more sightseeing, we can organise trips along the river or to Pammukkale, fethiye, Bodrum, Ephesus and many more. How much fun you have is really up to you! We provide the tools, you need to take advantage of them.

We are the closest and only Hostel Resort from award winning Iztuzu beach. WINNER OF TRIP ADVISOR'S TRAVELLER'S CHOICE AWARD FOR BEST BEACH IN TURKEY in 2013, WINNER OF THE BEST OPEN SPACE IN EUROPE CATEGORY in 2008 (The Times) and chosen in the TOP 10 BEST BEACHES IN EUROPE in 2006 (The Independant). You can reach the beach by a 10-minute mini bus ride (every half an hour) or for green visitors, you can cycle/ walk there. We have bicycles and scooters for cheap hire. We are a 800 meters walk away or a couple of minutes bicycle ride to town. If you want to be in the middle of town, we are not the place for you! If you can appreciate the unique feeling of being in nature, surrounded by mountains, fruit trees and beautiful, spacious gardens, then this is the place for you.
Comfort Time:
Bahaus Hostel Dalyan Resort will exceed all your expectations. The hostel is uniquely decorated with traditional Turkish touches, including marble floors and wooden ceilings, and a sunken lounging area with comfy cushions, a large plasma TV and cosy fire place. Clad in natural stones, our hostel blends perfectly into the surrounding mountains.
We have all necessary amenities to guarantee your comfort, such as free internet and wi-fi throughout, environment-friendly air -conditioning, laundry service.
Rooms are spacious and comfortable with orthopedic mattresses for a good nights sleep. All rooms are ensuite and the shower rooms are equipped with hair dryers, magnifying mirrors and have strong water pressure with continuous hot water.

Relaxing Time:
There is a swimming pool and two jacuzzis; you can listen to the sound of our waterfall while you sunbathe on our lounger. There are hammocks and traditional Turkish covered seating areas where you can chill out in the garden.
The swimming pool and jacuzzis are closed from 1st November until 25th April.

Healthy Time:
Adjacent to the hostel is an organic farm where you can collect fresh eggs for breakfast and pick tomatoes, cucumbers and other vegetables as well as all kinds of fruit straight from the trees- nothing can be fresher or healthier. You can also watch the farm animals- ducks, chickens, turkeys and peacocks.

Food Time:
Our castle-style barbecue will serve tasty testi kebabs (such as those baked in traditional earthenware pots) as well as lots of delicious fresh fish and vegetarian meals (using organic produce from our farm or neighbouring farms). We make our own pide (pizza) in our specially designed oven. You will be amazed the foods we will serve you. Our free breakfast is a great way to start the day.

Sport Time:
We have a fully-equipped gym area where you can work out in fresh air. Only a sports person can appreciate how great it is to do gym or body building in the outdoors and then be able to have a glass of freshly-squeezed fruit juice. We also have a football, tennis and volleyball area. Or you can play pool, table tennis or table football.

Social Time:
We have a unique assembly of travellers meeting place -made of real stone with seating for about 30 people, it surrounds a fire. It is the perfect place to share travel stories, meet other people and have deep conversations while sitting under the stars or in the sunshine. We also have a large bar and dancing area with a modern sound system. Dalyan is not a party zone BUT WE WILL BE!!!!!!!!!! when there is the right crowd of people, WE KNOW HOW TO PARTY VERY WELL.
There are outdoor pavilions where you can watch the sunset or moonrise through the green mountains, or read a book from our library or chat to fellow travellers while lying on traditional Turkish handmade flat woven pillows. You can also smoke quality water pipes with lots of different tobacco to choose from.

Culture and History Time:
The area has a rich historical heritage and there are many ancient sites to view such as Caunos. There are activities organised for you every day, including tours to nearby Pamukkale, Fethiye, Mamaris, Bodrum, Sarigerme, Saklikent Gorge and many undiscovered bays. Go for boat trips under the gaze of ancient Lycian tombs or follow in the footsteps of Cleopatra and treat you skin and get more beautiful by having a mud and hot mineral bath.

Nature and Unique Turtle Time:
Nature lovers will enjoy walking, bird-watching or fishing in the unspoilt countryside. There are also bikes to use for hire so you can explore the surrounding area. This area is home to the unique and endangered Caretta turtle and you may see them if you take a boat trip and can discover where they have been coming to lay their eggs for millenia. The Nile turtle(only found in the Nile river and Dalyan) also can be seen swimming through the waterways.

By air:

The nearest International Airport is Dalaman, which is about 20 minutes away by road. Dalaman is served by many major airlines. Alternatively you can get a connection to Dalaman from Istanbul.
Airport pick up and drop off is 30 euros each way (not per person, but for a maximum 8 people).
Please send us your airline, flight number, arrival time and date 24 hours in advance if you wish to use this service.
A taxi from the airport costs approx 75 TL.

By coach:

You can also reach this area by coach from major destinations in Turkey. You need to go to Ortaca, which is a small town between Dalyan and Dalaman and which is a major hub for national bus services.
Coaches usually go overnight from Istanbul and take about 11 hours to get to Ortaca. From Ortaca you reach Dalyan in 10 minutes with the regular and cheap minibus (Dolmus) services which leave every 15 minutes. Ask the dolmus driver and he can drop you off on the way in front of Bahaus Hostel . If not, the dolmus drops you off in Dalyan and from there, you will need to take another dolmus to Iztuzu Beach. Ask the driver to drop you off in front of Bahaus (this will only take about 2 minutes once you leave Dalyan).
We also have a pick up/ drop off service to Ortaca which costs 10 euros one way (not per person, but for up to 8 persons in total). We will need to know your bus company, approximate arrival time and point of departure at least 24 hours in advance to organise the pick up.
