WANTED: Travel tips for Istanbul/Turkey!

Hello there fellow Internations members! After i got my BA this summer, i wanted to do something amazing before i would have to start working for the next 40 years, so i decided to travel the world for a year.

I have completed the European continent almost, and will arrive in Istanbul beginning next week. Personally, i have never been in Istanbul, and i'd love to hear something from you guys! I know i can look the standard stuff up on the internet, but my real question is really;

What should i as a tourist see that is not on the Istanbul tourist map?

Also i am looking for a cheap place to sleep, so if anyone can recommend me guesthouses or something (cheap, since i am on a student's budget!) that would be great :)
