I absolutely recomend this hostel. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and well decorated. The staff is really friendly, helpful and they make an awesome portuguese dinner. Met lots of fun people there.

Well located hostel between Rede Expressos bus station and train station, about five minutes either way. Walking distance to most sights in Porto. Very well appointed hostel, an older building renovated in a modern style. Good breakfast and a very large outdoor terrace for lounging.

Pretty good hostel to spend your time where you are in Porto. The position is good and the staff is very friendly. They are always ready to help you and they wanna be sure your time there is just perfect. Good cleaning conditions and everything you need is included. What do you need more?

I stayed here with my friend for 2 nights on vacation. The staff is really nice as is the hostel. You feel more like you are staying in a hotel. We stayed in a 8 person girls dorm which had bunk beds, fans, and curtains which was amazing. There is a great terrace with cheap drinks where everyone hangs out,... More

I enjoyed everything at Tattva hostel! From the warm reception of the front desk personnel, to my room, my warm bed with its own curtain which gives you much privacy. There's a lamp, fan and power plugs in each bunk. Good security for your stuff as well. The room key opens your private locker! And oooohhh! I loved the breakfast!... More

Booked in an 8 person dormitory, private bathroom with 1 toilet, 1 toilet+shower and 1 shower. Private airco is amazing, came in very handy due to the hot temperatures. Staff dinner and BBQ night are highly recommended, good food (vegetarian option as well) and great atmosphere. Definitely coming back to this hostel if I will go again to Porto!

This hostel was clean, comfortable and funky! The beds were so comfortable with a fluffy duvet and mattress, and your own fan in the bunk too. I had the best night's sleep of my trip at this hostel. The bathroom was excellent! I shared a room with five other girls, so having two (TWO!!) showers was great!! The design was... More

This is among the best hostels I stayed in so far. I really cannot say anything bad about it and usually one can always find something if you are just looking for it long enough. Location is great, really close to the most important landmarks and only 5 minutes to walk from the station and even closer to the next... More
