We, two young women living in the Netherlands, had a wonderful time in the Portushouse in Istanbul. The hostel is stylishly furnished and decorated (with good beds and airco) and the English speaking staff is really helpful and kind. They took the time for a chat, explain things we were curious about and gave some really nice suggestions on Turkish food, shopping and other tourist activities like which Hamam we should visit. The nice breakfast is served between 8 and 11 which is really convenient. The rooms were very clean. Even though the hostel is located quite central, the street was not easy to find (without a smart-phone) for the first time. It felt just a little uncomfortable walking there late at night. However, if we return to Istanbul (which is likely), we will certainly book a room in this hostel again!
