Dearest Guest, thank you very much for your sharing your view here with the communicty. We are all happy that you enjoyed your stay with us this much and look forward to welcoming you again. Your Portus House Team


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,

This has got to be one of the most flattering reviews we eve received, thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts here. It was a pleasure to host you, moreover, to know you have enjoyed everything so much. Hopefully until next time! Your Portus House Team


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.
