This was the first hostel I had ever stayed in, and it set a very high standard the rest of my trip! Portugal has so many amazing hostels and this is definitely one of them!! It was a bit hard to find however, and ended up being a long confusing walk up a steep hill with no internet or mobile...

This hostel is very close to train station and bus station of Porto. The staff is very helpfull and smile face. They have good Porto wine and sea food. Rooms have good bed and heater system. There is a common kitchen in first floor, you can cook your own food.

Love Porto mostly because of the people I met at Tattva. Great guests and employees (s/o to Luigi for being the best unofficial bar crawl tour guide ever!), awesome family dinner, and super chill atmosphere. Everything is reasonably clean and the location is convenient. Hope to come back soon!

Tattva, in all the hostels Ive managed to stay in all over the world is simply the best. There's the legendary breakfast spread (YES, EAT IT!) The crew at Tattva are the warmest bunch I've met and I like that if you ask for recommendations on where to eat, where to party - their suggestions are on point! It was...

One of the best hostels I've been so far! Starting from all the contact made to do the reservation, a really competitive price, the best conditions you could find in a Hostel, but mostly all the sympathy and professionalism of all the Tattva Staff. Definitely somewhere my friends and I will return shortly! Wishing the best for a great working...

I traveled to Portugal and Spain In July of 2016 with Topdeck Tours and this hostel was where we stayed when we reached Porto. It was easily the best place we stayed during the entire trip. The staff was very friendly and what struck me was the cleanliness of the washroom inside the room. The dining hall and rooftop patio...

A very good hostel with a great location for seeing Porto. The hostel is clean, the staff are welcoming and efficient, the dormitories are thoughtfully equipped, the wifi is strong and the excellent breakfasts are free with good coffee. What a great package! Best of all is the communal evening meal with wine included for only €10. The atmosphere at...

In my opinion few hostels can live up to the standard that Tattva sets. The rooms and toilettes are very modern and clean. The hostel staff are, without exception, lovely people. The nightly hostel dinner is also quite good (and comes with unlimited wine) but for me the two greatest things about this hostel are the huge terrace and the...

Tattva was easily one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in and the staff was so incredibly friendly, it made the hostel feel like home. My three friends and I stayed in a 10 bedroom dormitory and the bunk beds were constructed so that it did not feel like I was sharing a room with 9 others. The location...
