Not quite as nice as the photos suggest. Great location next to the train station, with great free breakfast (make your own pancakes). The beds are wonderful, with curtains and lockers underneath (no need for your own padlock), & and the en-suite dorm bathroom was also very good. The shower felt like being under a waterfall. The hostel seems to offer numerous expensive trips. The area isn't very nice, and the staff didn't seem anything special. Not quite as good as the ratings suggest.

One of the best hostels I've stayed at by far. The beds were amazing with curtains, lights, powerpoints and a fan! The rooms also had toilets and showers attached! Had dinner with the staff both nights (definitely recommend, only 10 euros and you get 3 courses and drinks), even chatted with the owner and his family for a while, who were lovely and always keen to get involved. Everyone is so friendly, Anna, Andre and George were absolutely fantastic! So helpful. It was always clean. No problems!

The staff were not forthcoming in giving us tips or helping us during our stay. One of our beds still had dirty sheets on our arrival and we were both locked out of the room and our lockers midway through our stay for no apparent reason. It is good having a curtain for each bunk to give privacy but the bathroom was very smelly as there is no ventilation at all so it remains damp. There was also no where to hang towels to dry in our room. Walls are thin too so can hear other rooms and hallway.

The actual hostel itself was great, but the staff running it made it excellent. They were both warm, knowledgeable and funny. I really enjoyed my time with them.

Tattava was hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in! On top of having great facilities, they run awesome activities, like the staff dinner, which is an awesome opportunity to eat delicious traditional food, meet other travellers and have a seriously good laugh. Best of all, though, were the incredible staff. At all times they went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy and enjoying ourselves. Special shout out to Pedro, Giulio, Jorje, Joshua and Andre, thank you for everything!

There was located good position to move anywhere. Especially, There was very close from rede expressor bus terminal. I easily could go there. The toilet was really clean but I was uncomportable to take a shower without any curtain to prevent my clothes by water. The bed was good. I could write postcards or daily note to use the bed light. I am going to visit here if i travel again.

Rooms were very clean and spacious! The included breakfast was delicious with pancakes and fresh fruit. I would recommend this hostel to other travellers.

The public part of the facilities were great! The bedroom was not. The beds are uncomfortable and there is only one toilet in the room which also has a shower. Nice if you're using but if you have to wait for others to shower to use the bathroom, its not nice. Plus the water from the shower creates a lake in the bathroom and everything gets wet...AND there is no fan so the steam is creating mold in the bathroom, which is not good for the health of the guests.

A good solid hostel. The hostel was completely booked which meant we had to stay in separate rooms but that is by no way there fault. The guys tried to get us in a room together. Very friendly staff. Five mins to centre of town.

Great hostel! Especially the staff Pedro, Julio, Joshua and George. Saw some great clubs, restaurants recommended by them they even suggested a plan B after plan A. Plan B overruled plan A. With a very nice prepared breakfast in the morning provided by the guys. Not to forget the amazing sober wine/port tour provided by the hostel. In the end it was too short so we will come back very soon. Xxx Shipwreck (cruise ship) and Pineapple p.s. Pedro I still have your flippo

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.
