Çanakkale is a pretty, small port city located on the Dardanelles strait on the Asian side of Turkey. Çanakkale is the perfect place to base yourself to explore the nearby battlefields of Gallipoli, the ancient city ruins of Troy, Bozcada, and Gokceada islands and the city of Çanakkale offers many attractions in itself for visitors.

There are many Çanakkale hostels and boutique hotels to suit all budgets and tastes. The majority of Çanakkale hostels are located within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal and bus terminal, where you will most likely arrive in Çanakkale. Çanakkale hostels are mostly in the historical old town area near the waterfront and close to many restaurants, pubs, and shops selling everything from souvenirs and local crafts to fresh produce and snacks. The prices for Çanakkale hostels vary depending on season; some offer breakfast and every Çanakkale hostel can help arrange tours to Gallipoli, Troy, and surrounding attractions.

Çanakkale is a small city with a very laid-back, relaxed atmosphere and is a lovely place to stroll around and get to know the friendly locals. The waterfront area leading from the ferry terminal has a nice boardwalk where you can walk and stop for something to eat or drink in one of the many waterfront restaurants and bars and even stop to admire the full-size Trojan horse used in the filming of the movie "Troy"! There is also a small naval museum and pebble beaches located a few minutes' walk from the centre, plus good fishing spots and a nice green park in the centre where you can stroll around and relax.

Çanakkale gets extremely busy around Anzac Day (April 25th), with thousands of tourists (from Australia and New Zealand in particular) coming to pay their respects at the dawn service on the site of the Gallipoli battlefields -- so book well in advance if you plan to stay in Çanakkale hostels around this time.
