Lo staff é stato gentilissimo, al nostro arrivo ci hanno dato la cartina e spiegato i monumenti più importanti, erano sempre disponibili a rispondere alle domande, e abbiamo potuto lasciare i nostri bagagli in hotel dopo il check out. Camera pulita, moderna, silenziosa, luminosa, letto comodissimo. Un po' difficile da trovare, ma molto ben piazzato (vicino alla fermata del tram e monumenti raggiungibili benissimo a piedi in 15-20 minuti).

Caro guest, Mi scusi che io non parlo italiano. We are all very happy that you have perceived our staff as friendly and the room "clean, modern, quiet, bright, with a comfortable bed". Please visit us again for some more Italian lessons in exchange of unforgettable memories in this amazing part of town. Il vostro team Portus House


Sehr gutes Hosel, wir waren zu dritt und Zimmer, Personal, Lage, Internet und Frühstück waren top! Jeden Tag frische Handtücher. Und zu Fuß 5min von der S-Bahn. Danke für den Host!!!

Lieber, herzlichen Dank für Deine freundliche Bewertung. Wir freuen uns, dass es Euch bei uns gefallen hat und wünschen Euch alles Gute für Eure weiteren Unternehmungen. Euer Portus House Team


Wonderful staff, great location!


Really clean, more a hotel than hostel - lovely beds, bottles of water on arrival and maps in the room. Amazing service too- We had to leave for the airport at 5am and they had organized a packed breakfast for us as we wouldn't make the free breakfast. Upgraded on our first night. Highly recommend!


Portus House was an excellent choice. Although not exactly in the epicenter of Istanbul, it is located within walking distance from everything you would like. Staff was always warm and willing to help us in any way and made us feel welcome and "at home". The house was super clean - it definetely was cleaner than most of the hotels I have stayed in and I have stayed in quite a lot of good hotels. The room was spacious and always warm (we visited Istanbul in a period of heavy snowing weather).

muy buen hospedaje, con un staff encantador que nos ayudo en todo. lo unico que hechamos de menos fue fuegos en la cocina para pode cocinar


Perfect place (for me), nice and friendly stuff. Very clean! Nice breakfast. I missed only common room.


A great Hostel for couples or if you're travelling with a friend and happy to stay in a place where you are needing to meet other people. This place is classy and modern and very reasonable value given the quality of the facilities.


Très bon accueil, situation géographique parfaite. Le personnel est vraiment à votre service et n'hésite pas à se renseigner auprès de ses clients pour savoir quels sont les centres d'intérêts et ensuite en faire profiter les clients suivants : c'est très appréciable.
