The default port for the http webserver is port 80. You can access it with or without port as the localhost normally will be define in the hosts file.
If you are looking for way to hide the ports in the URL address for easier access by the users, you can use the virtual host option for the confluence instance. Refer to the following documentation on how to set the virtual host here.
