This is a fantastic hostel. The beds are great (though could be longer, I am 6'7 and not so great for me.) And they have lockers under then. The rooms are mixed which means I can stay with my partner, there are 6 bunk's to a room and 2 showers and one toilet. The showers are great better then some... More

I'm really torn with this review. I stayed at the hostel for 8 days so I can say that my review would be fair enough. If I were to rate most of the staff and the location alone I would easily give 5 stars. HOWEVER, when it came to cleanliness it certainly left more to be desired. The showers have... More

Location is so great, the dorms are comfy with great showers. Only complaint would be the fact that the showers and toilets are a part of each dorm. Sounds great but the minute someone gets up to shower, you have no choice but to wake up as well. But obviously this can't be changed - just if you are looking... More

Me and four friends booked out a six bed dorm for ourselves at the beginning of July here for three nights and had an incredible time. The hostel's very easy to find, has a beautiful design, the dorms are large and comfortable and we had a small balcony with a great view over the city. There was a really sociable... More

This hostel is so amazing, its in a good location. Beautiful inside, well set out and huge communal areas, looks brand new. Awesome restaurant with great food and good breakfast. Cute rooftop and bar just downstairs. Really friendly and nice staff, what more could you want?!

It's been years since I stayed at a hostel. Decided to stay at the Tattva since I was travelling alone. Stayed in an 8 bed all female dorm. Was pretty impressed with the design; card-locker for suitcase, fan, 2 sockets for gadgets. Room and WC facilities clean. Location is near Sao Bento metro, train station and a lot of the... More

It happened that I had to be in Porto for almost for a whole March and instead of renting an apartment, decided to stay in this hostel. Actually, I would never take such a big risk with any other hostel, but as I stayed there last year I did not have any doubt that it is going to be ok!... More

I was very impressed with their dorm rooms. Each bed came with a reading light, shelf, locker, fan, and curtain that extends fully around your bunk. The curtain was great for privacy. The hostel also has a bar, full kitchen, computers, friendly/helpful staff, and an elevator to help reach all the floors. Really great hostel, 5/5

There are no words to describe how amazing this hostel is, for sure the best I've ever been!! Dorms are super clean and comfortable, breakfast is included and is really good, there is a beautiful terrace and a bar...and, most important, the socialising with other guests and the staff is awesome!
