Best hostel I've ever been in. Very central location, very safe with individual badged lockers and with as much privacy as you can get in a hostel with curtains for every bed. Showers could get a bit cleaner but I was impressed with everything else. Roof terrace is great, staff is cool, and breakfast is real good!

Totally recommendable. Really good location. The staff in the reception is so helpfull, they gave me a lot good tips about the city, food, also about where I could watch the Olimpics! And also the waiters are so nice, the prices quite cheap and enjoying a cold cheap paint in a terrace in the middle of Porto has no price.... More

Clean, friendly people working there, very close to downtown (5 minutes on foot), nice breakfast. Memorable: each bed has its own curtain -so you sleep somehow in privacy - and its own plugs. Good to visit!

There is locker under your bed that you can only open with your room card so very secure. The breakfast is included and it's worth it !!! You have pancakes, nutella, coffee,... More

I booked my stay at Tattva Hostel last minute when I decided to visit Porto. The staff was very inviting, and the hostel is very clean with a lot of privacy in the dorm rooms. The breakfast is, by far, the best hostel breakfast I have ever received! It was close to the RE bus station as well as the... More

One of the hostels with best structure I've ever saw. Staff efficient and friendly, Great rooms, lockers under bed, clean and big bathroom, amazing breakfast, a working wifi, a lot of space to integrate with people. And the hostel is located near train station and restaurants.

I arrived at the hostel with nine friends and the reception staff were very efficient and friendly. There were plenty of computers to check emails etc. The rooms had everything that a backpacker would need. An individual light, fan and a power point for each bunk. There was a safe drawer to leave belongings allocated for each bunk. But the... More
