Youth Hostels Network in World Heritage Cities
The Sultan Youth Hostel of Istanbul joined the programme "Youth Hostels, a Passport for World Heritage Cities". The network counts now 26 participating hostels in the most beautiful cities around the world.
The residents of a OWHC member city can avail themselves of a free overnight stay (a 2nd free night for groups of 10+ and a 3rd one for individuals) in addition to benefitting from heritage discovery activities.
Furthermore, the Director-General of UNESCO, Mr. Koïchiro Matsuura, announced that the UN organization was associating with the program. We are proud to count UNESCO among our partners.
