The room was clear, in an 8 bed-dorm, the view was kind of okay from the room, the bathroom could be in a bit better condition but was not problem at all. The bed was comfortable with reading light and electricity. But the best part was the breakfast and the dinner with the greatest staff that I have ever met... More

From the reception to... More

The location of the hostel is central, the staff is great, the breakfast too, everything is clean and bathroom are shared within the same bedroom (which is nicer than common bathrooms). And there is AC !! Great place to meet people too. Perfect :)

We stayed in a 10 bedroom dormroom which was simple but absolutely fine for the price. The breakfast is awesome, they have fruits, toast, eggs and - best of it - pancakes! The staff was really nice as well and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know their guests. We really enjoyed our stay at tattva and can only recommend... More

The fabric above average but the people working there really make the place; one gets the impression that there's not much they wouldn't try to do for you. Comfortable racks with the novelty of privacy curtains on both levels - why don't more places do that? Very good breakfast with the novelty of a pancake maker. Good location. Good restaurant...
