The friendliest staff in a hostel that I have ever seen! Clean rooms, very comfortable accommodation, maybe a bit too narrow between the beds. Location is great! You are in the very center, the subway station is close. Eberything is easy to find! Would recommend it any time! The best hostel that I have been to so far!

Spent 4 nights at Tattva and theirs is probably the most comfortable hostel bed I've ever slept in. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially Lior. Breakfast is amazing - how often do you get to make fresh pancakes at a hostel? The pubcrawl was also totally worth it.

One of the best hostels I've stayed. The rooms and bathrooms are super clean. There is lots of space for everyone in room plus a massive locker for each bed. Breakfast is an experience out of this world. Everything, from the many kinds of bread to the hot food passing by the fruits was amazingly tasting and with so much... More

Design of the hostel was beautiful, everything looked new, what a shame that we were only there for a night. one could easily stay in for a week I... More

I had an amazing stay at the hostel during one weekend. The staff is very nice and helpful, there were many interesting activities offered by the hostel (typical dinner, pub crawl, wine tour), the room is safe and confortable, the common areas are very cool. Even more important than that, the hostel, staff and guests have a very positive vibe... More

I've just got back from my second stay in Tattva; the first time I was travelling with. Friend and we made endless new friends very quickly and the second time I was travelling solo but it was very much the same. I had an instantly warm reception and was made to feel part of the Tattva family. My favourite part... More

I went to Tattva Design last week and absolutely loved it. Pedro and Joshua have kindly showed me the beautiful art on the rooftop, with paintings that resemble Porto's iconic images, and that is definitely something to appreciate if you go there. Great service, very nice people, and I will definitely come back! Oh, and another must see is the... More
