Due to Aphro and Levent their assistance, we did not need to worry about the journey even in a unfamiliar environment, and have a very good experience at Cappadocia. We really appreciate their help and kindness. However, we still want to thank Aphro particularly. Thank her for patiently discussing our travel plan. Anyway if you want to drop by, you...

Dear Guest, We saw your review and we tried to track back how/when/whom created this event on our side. We are truly sorry about your experience in Cappadocia. But for now we can only guess that the men you mentioned on the post, probably was our laid off manager "Cihan/Jay". He left Pilot Inn just because we had quite different...

I stayed two nights at Pilot Inn, and it was definitely one of the best place I've stayed in Turkey. Levent and Aphro both speak very fluent English, and Aphro speaks also Chinese. Selin speaks only Turkish, but is still very friendly. Everyone is willing to help with any kind of problem, including travel advice, even out of Kapadokya. I...

Second time visiting cappadocia, second time staying in the pilot inn! Love the cave room which has lots of space and nice decoration. Due to the cave being submerged in the large rock, behind the hostel, it makes for a sound proof room and a good nights sleep. The hostel staff were very helpful and organised the tours and hot...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
100 m to the bus station at central Göreme. 7 rooms with en-suite bathrooms and 9 bunk beds in one large, spacious cave with 3 shared bathrooms & showers. Free WiFi. Laundry service at an affordable cost. Great for budget travelers and students. Managed by a balloon pilot and tour guide, you can get priceless travel information for travelling in Turkey even for a short time. The cave maybe 4 thousand years old, nobody knows. Very centrally located; bus station and markets/groceries are within reach of seconds or couple of minutes. One can get priceless travel information at anytime manager is available, except for most early mornings as he is a hot air balloon pilot. He is also an active tour guide for 19 years.24/7 hot water. Laundry service. Smiling hosts. No need to mention; hair dryer, and free & fast WiFi, sat tv, travel library (sorry no book exchange). Great terrace view!We make ourselves available 10-16 hours a day but outside office hours and especially in case of emergency, just ring the bell at the public area and knock our employee's door.We are at a back street very close to the bus station, so its very quiet and peaceful at all times. Great sites are in walking distance such as Rose Valley, Red Valley, Love Valley and Göreme Open Air Museum.Direct buses to and from many big cities year-round. Free parking on the street protected by surveillance cameras. Very reasonable fee for Airport shuttles to and from both Kayseri (ASR) and Nevsehir (NAV) Airports.Traveling is fun. Always plan it well and be on safe side. We always go that extra step to help you; just tell us, don't hesitate. ... more   less
