The Best Hostels in Selcuk for Ephesus, Turkey

Selcuk is a town near Izmir, in western Turkey. It's the gateway to Ephesus, a vast, ancient city with the remains of a large theater and the Library of Celsus. South is the House of Virgin Mary, a domed chapel and religious shrine. Near Selcuk, a marble column is one of a few remains of the Temple of Artemis. The Ephesus Museum has more items from the temple, plus other artifacts excavated from the Ephesus site. This gateway to Ephesus has plenty of its own attractions: Roman/Byzantine aqueduct arches, a lone pillar remaining from one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the hilltop Byzantine ruins of the Basilica of St John and Ayasuluk Fortress. Like all small places catering to short-term visitors, there is plenty of competition in the local tourism trade, which can result in good deals for visitors. Selcuk remains a likeable, down-to-earth place, mixing a traditional country feel with a tourist buzz and family-run pensions offering a taste of Turkish hospitality and home cooking. It's a relaxing place to cool your heels for a spell. With all of these fabulous attributes, Selcuk is a great place to visit, and, there are also some great, budget-friendly accommodations to use as a base for exploring.
