Hostels in Istanbul
Istanbul, formerly Constantinople, has a history that stretches beyond our current millennium, to about 1000 years BCE. It has seen and fostered both the rise of Christianity and Islam, and was historically one of the most tolerant cities in the world. Istanbul
still welcomes people from across the globe as tourists today. When considering which of its 39 districts to stay in, consider hostels in Fatih, the oldest district of the city. Tourists looking to sightsee should seek out the Dolmabahce Palace, the Valens Aqueduct, the Chora Church and the Blue Mosque. You can not only hostels in Istanbul with WImdu but also find various other forms of accommodation
worldwide, for example flats in Paris
and New York
. Hostels are located around the city but keep in mind that congestion on the streets as well as pollution continue to be a problem so choose a place that is not too far from where you actually want to be. The city has a population of around 10 million and sees about 5 million travellers a year making it incredibly busy and difficult to move around in.
