We stayed at the Tattva for 2 nights in May. This is an excellent hostel in a very central location - within walking distance to all of the main sites of Porto. Reception staff were very helpful and spoke perfect English, which we welcomed. The private double room (suite 43 on the fourth floor) was spacious and had a wonderful... More

Really friendly staff, who organize nightly diners with the guests if they want to. If your lucky, you get a typical Portuguese dish served in front of you. I definitaly liked this approach, as it gives you a solid chance to get to know other people in a decente way. The hostel is VERY clean, has a huge aquarium, good... More

The first word I want to give to Tattva hostel: Excellent. Staff at reception brought me and show me around the hostel's facilities and all the way smiled when you asked them the questions. Booked for 6 beds dorm and the room, bed and wash room extremely clean. I never expect in the bunk of 6 beds dorm, the wash... More

Tattava was hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in! On top of having great facilities, they run awesome activities, like the staff dinner, which is an awesome opportunity to eat delicious traditional food, meet other travellers and have a seriously good laugh. Best of all, though, were the incredible staff. At all times they went above and beyond... More

very modern and nice hostel with spacious rooms. Restaurant, Bar, TV Room, common rooms and rooftop were excellent and nice to hang out. Kitchen was very clean though some basic stuff such as oil and salt were missing (bring these things with you). Staff at the reception was no help at all and always seemed to be pissed whenever you... More

Tattva Design hostel was one the best hostels I've ever been. Extremely awesome and fun staff and there's always something to do. Hostel and rooms were really clean, safe and private, and the terrace was so lovely place to chill in the sun and meet new people. Also the hostel is in a really good location, near everything.

My stay at Tattva couldn't have been better! It was my first time staying in a hostel and my first time travelling alone also. As soon as I arrived, they made me feel welcome and at home. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They would answer any questions I had about the city or the hostel, and even stay... More

This was by far one of the best if not in my top 2 of best hostels I have ever stayed in. Clean/fun/always something to do. The restaurant with the patio up top/outside is awesome for hanging out and meeting people. There are always plenty of people and everything is new and spacious and you feel like you are at... More

This hostel was simply a dream. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure you have the best stay. There was one morning where we had to do an emergency laundry load, and we didn't have enough time before our walking tour to transfer the wet laundry into the dryer before we left. The front staff were kind enough... More

A friend and I went to Porto together and decided on this hostel. We were glad we chose it because of the great location, provisions and the friendly people. We took advantage of the free tours offered (the guide lives off tips) and ended up meeting quite a lot of people there. The rooms are reasonably spaced and you get... More
