Great location near the cafes and restaurants in karakoy. Rooms are small but very updated and clean. Wifi works well. Staff is friendly and helpful. This is not a social type of hostel, more like a hotel.


Great place to stay for visiting the sites in Istanbul! Friendly, helpful, staff, went well beyond the call of duty with help and advice. I would highly recommend Portus House.

This has got to be one of the best hostels I've stayed at - it's more like a hotel. With fantastic rooms, the hostel is well decorated and modern. The place was spotless and we had a great breakfast each morning. The location was great as we stayed in a part of Istanbul we hadn't stayed previously, which his surrounded by fantastic restaurants and great little coffee shops. The staff were also brilliant catering to our every need. Highly recommend,
