Shantihome is for those travellers looking for a home away from home.

We are a small hostel with a friendly, shanti atmosphere and an ideal location in the middle of Alsancak. In this part of Ä°zmir, you will find cafes, street musicians, bars and the famous Kordon seaside promenade.

We have shared bathrooms and shared kitchen and a colourful, social common room. We are happy to provide information and maps on İzmir and attractions nearby, as well as of course limitless çay.

To get from the airport to Shantihome: at the airport, follow the signs to the Ä°zban (train) station, and take the train in the direction of AliaÄŸa to Alsancak. This will take about 25 minutes. From Alsancak station, it is then a five minute walk to the hostel: once outside the station, you will see a big roundabout. At the left of the roundabout, there is a pedestrian crossing. Cross this and you will see a Garanti Bank. Walk down the street next to it (1469 sokak), then take the second left and second right. After two minutes of walking you will see a three storey purple building on your right and that is Shantihome. Alternatively, have a look at the map below.

If you arriving by bus from any other town or city, you will arrive at the main Ä°zmir bus station (otogar). All bus companies offer free shuttle services from the otogar to Basmane, the main train station in Ä°zmir.
