Thank you so much. It was a pleasure to meet you. Our nigh owls were delighted to help at any hour :)


The hostel staff was wonderful. One of the staff members even took us to help find the best place to buy apple tea when we couldn't find it. He was willing to do this during his time off and he was very helpful. The only complaint was there wasn't hot water consistently. Several times we had to take lukewarm showers.

Thank you so much for your praise. We like to contribute to the ultimative Istanbul experience, so almost no wish is too much for us. Thank you also for the feedback regarding the water. We checked and were not able to lock down an issue, though we will definetely keep an eye on it. Hopefully until next time. Warm Regards, Your Portus House Team
