I highly recommend. Nicer then most hotels.
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,
The Portus House was the perfect place for our short trip to Istanbul. The rooms were very comfortable, lovely furnished and very clean. Breakfast was turkish style and super delicious. The area around the hotel is dominated by many bars and cafés, but this won't disturb you during the night. You can easily experience Istanbul by foot or take the public transport. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and helpful and it felt like coming home every time we climbed up the stairs to the reception.
The staff were amazing , helping us even with luggage (we stayed on the top floor and had no elevator) . The room is great , spacious, very comfortable bed and a good bathroom . The location , although near the Galata Bridge, left us a little scared at night, because it was very dark . But nothing that would compromise our stay. We used the shuttle service to both airports in Istanbul and all went well . Thank you, Portus House Team!
