OK. The kitchen's on the port side (left, if you're facing forward) and the hall is off to starboard. Which could also be left if you're facing the stern. Hence the use of these highly nautical terms.

Ah stop it now JW...should've left the port alone last night all of us.
Now you'll get us in trouble with JK.
