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!!!

When I stayed there was no hot water. Nice hostel with welcoming staff. Owner continually reminding us to rate the hostel on everything. Very annoying. Not how you should run a business. Provide the services you promise and you'll get the reviews you want.

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!
