Having stayed in other hostels in Porto ( this was my third and last one), and never having written a review in my life, I felt obliged to write about this marvellous place where I made amazing friends. The staff go out of their way to help you. The location is perfect, right on the centre of town. The terrace is just amazing as are the fish in the aquarium. My room was clean, the showers powerful, the beds REALLY confortable. Plus they have a curtain around each bed and 3 power sockets also!!!

Crazy Design Hostel. Just have been there for one night, but I really liked it. I felt safe there, especially because of the trunks under the beds. I can really recommend the Tattva.

Tattva is more like a hotel than a hostel. Everything was extremely clean and newly renovated and it even had a restaurant and about 4 computers. However, possibly due to its large size, it lost a lot of the personability of a typical hostel. I was a bit disappointed that on a Thursday night there was virtually nobody hanging out at the hostel.

Location is close to the bus station and train station, but the neighborhood is a bit sketchy. NOT recommand walking alone at night. Room is not very spacious.

We really enjoyed the staff, they were friendly and funny. I was impressed by the cleanliness, and the shower was nice. I would definitely stay here again.

Tattva is a really nice place! The only thing I could say is that, for being voted the "Best Large Hostel in the World," the staff could really be more helpful and nice. They weren't rude necessarily, but most of our questions went relatively unanswered. The exception would be the bartender, who was so sweet and went way out of his way to make sure we enjoyed our drinks! The hostel has a lot of cool things going on (dinner with the staff, Portuguese lessons, etc), too. Overall, great!

Amazing! Stuff is very helpful e nice! The rooms are very comfortable. Just something: I thought the bathrooms inside the rooms a bit dark, the lights could be a little strong.

My stay at Tattva was very nice! The breakfast buffet is excellent and facilities are clean with hot showers. The personal curtains on the beds give you privacy and there are multiple places in the hostel to hang out with others. I definitely recommend a stay here!

This might just be the best hostel I've ever stayed at, and I've already stayed at several very good ones in the past. The key thing about this hostel is how it makes you feel at home. This is partly due to the very nice interior design, partly because of the excellent facilities, but mainly because of the staff. The most incredible thing is how even the busy owners themselves come over now and then to talk to their guests. Oh and the pattio is an amazing addition.
