Nice and central place. Service and the entire atmosphere is great. Lockers underneath the bed with curtains for privacy. Nice big terrace and bar. We only took the walking tour, which is definitely recommended!

I went back for the second time at Tattva and this time I would give a higher grade if I could, but I had already reviewed it as Excellent :) The hostel is by far the best I've ever been all around Europe for facilities, design, cleanliness etc...but I think that what really makes a difference here is the staff:...

We stayed there for 2 nights, we were 10 in the room for 8, and it had quite enough space, beds were comfortable, bathroom was nice and clean (2 toilets and 2 showers). Hostel has a big common kitchen and breakfast is included and it's amazing (pancakes with nutella!). Staff is helpful, nice and friendly.

We stayed here for two nights in the private double room and were incredibly impressed. The room was spacious, light and had air con. The bed was firm but very comfortable and we slept very well. The en suite bathroom was clean and the shower was pretty powerful. The location is very central and a 5-10 min walk to the... More

Enjoyed my stay at tattva. Rooms a big, clean and comfy. All beds have a curtain, light and PowerPoint. There are activities daily, and the dinners are a great way to meet new people. All the staff were super friendly! They stop and chat to you, including the owners of the hostel. Would definitely recommend Tattva to fellow travellers!

This hostel is modern and has some of the best beds - they are super comfortable, clean, new, with shelf for your things, a plug-in, personal lamp and fan, and with a curtain for privacy or for light. Lockable storage, clean, safe, friendly, green.

We stayed here for just one night before going to Lisbon, so we wanted something cheap. Well, in our opinion this hostel is definitely worth your money! It's super friendly, clean, and all what you can expect from a good hostel! Moreover, it is close to two metro stations, so no worries getting there. They also served breakfast a little... More

I have been in Europe now for 5 weeks staying an average of 2 nights in each city and this hostel was easily the best one I've had so far! The rooms were roomy, there was lockers underneath your bed, privacy curtains, individual fans and power points. I really think this hostel was built with the backpacker in mind. There... More

I stayed here with my topdeck tour and was very impressed. Amazing facilities. Clean rooms with lots of bathrooms and fantastic rooftop bar with reasonably priced drinks. Great location too, walking distance to almost everything. Would highly recommend to anyone traveling alone or in a group.

Hello folks! Although the hostel and the staff were very nice, I just wanted to share this important information and warn people: I stayed 4 nights in the hostal mid-July 2015 and came back to my country with bedbugs stings, it was a terrible nightmare... So now, up to you!
