We went to this hostel just by chance and in general this is an average hostel, not special good, not special bad but this hostel has over one hindered beds and this is simply to noisy if 50 procent are party people and most of them drunk

This hostel was amazing! The staff was very friendly and open to help in any questions I asked. I stayed there two nights, first when I arrived to Porto and the second when I left Lisbon and got back to Porto to catch my flight. Both nights were really good. You have a locket under your bed which is REALLY... More

Everything is wonderful. Nice staff(they show us around the hostel and room), perfect location(metro:3-5mins walk, rede express bus:5-8mins walk, centre:5 mins walk ), clean(they clean the room everyday) and safe(locker and room with electronic key). The bed is super comfortable :-) I really enjoyed my staying here. But sometimes wifi is weak in room.

I have stayed in hostels across europe and this by far was the best i stayed in. An ideal hostel for any budget traveller would be location, cleanliness, staff response and price. But this is the minimum criterion. Tattva of course had it all but also much more. I think it is the small small things which make your stay... More

Tattva Design Hostel in Porto, Portugal is unreal. This hostel blows away the competition on every level. The hostel is located near the Se' (cathedral) and Sao Bento metro/train station. A perfect location near a transportation hub and near many sights. There are 3 types of dorms, which house 6, 8, and 10 people, including all female dorms and even... More

I stayed over a week and could not have had a better time. The owners and staff are a joy, the location excellent, the beds each one surrounded by its own beautiful fabric curtain were cozy, and private. Had great conversations and shared meals with the many interesting people that this special place attracted.
