Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here! The staff were super friendly! Decent bathrooms and beds. Curtains around the beds were a nice touch. Key card entry into the lockers was a cool feature!
Stayed in 7 or 8 different hostels all over Spain and Portugal this summer and Tattva was by far the best one.
Great hostel and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. Had a particularly good time with the bartender who was super friendly and had some drinks with us after his shift was over and even gave me tips for the rest of Portugal. The drawback is due to the hostel being so large I could see it being a struggle to meet others, however I didn't find this to be an issue - the rooftop and the dinner you can choose to join make it easy to meet and have a good time with others.
Best hostel! Every bed has an own curtain and fan which is pretty awesome !
Great Hostel. Friendly place - staff engaging. Lively always. Porto was fun, stay was all too short.
Excellent new hostel. Great facilities! Huge kitchen. All very new and clean. Comfortable beds and big lockers. Lacks a little atmosphere as its quite big. Such a good location!!! Recommend for sure
It's definitely one of the best hostels I've seen yet but sometimes it failed on some of the more core aspects. For example: the kitchen was very good but lacked good pans. The ones they have are old and sometimes miss a handle. There should be more plates to serve food on in that particular kitchen as well. Apart from that you should really get rid of those cats on the balcony. Also: 8 euros for washing is quite a lot. Maybe make it cheaper? Nonetheless a great hostel, keep it up!
A wonderful hostel! Fantastic atmosphere fostered by the staff that influences everyone staying there. The facilities are wonderful and always clean! And the included breakfast is far more than your standard white bread & cereal. The only tiny thing that wasn't great was the wifi, however it is still usable. If they improved the wifi this would be an almost perfect hostel!
This was a great hostel especially for someone traveling on their own. There is plenty of activities and they throw a staff dinner and a pub crawl every night which made it easy for someone on their own to meet new people. The beds come with lockers a curtain and powerpoints. George the bar tender there is an absolute legend, made us some of the best combinations of drinks I've ever had. My on criticism would be that the wi-fi was not the best! Thanks for the stay will definitely be back

Tattva is great!! The rooms are spacious, clean and comfy. All beds have privacy curtains, a fan, lights and power points. The staff are super friendly and make an effort to chat to you. When you check in someone give your a tour and takes you to your room. The activities (walking tours, dinners etc.) are great. I couldn't recommend Tattva more! If I'm back in Porto I'll be back!!
Really cool hostel in the centre of Porto - the staff are really friendly and welcoming! The bedrooms are amazing, each bunk has a locker for security and a curtain for privacy and the mattresses feel brand new! They have dinners most nights, which are really fun and the staff come and share a meal and some drinks with you. Great rooftop terrace!
Very close to the train station but be prepared for the hills of Porto. Roof terrace was lovely but seems to have an ongoing battle with stray cats. Staff appeared friendly but a few weren't overly helpful in problem solving. Otherwise a well thought out hostel, large lockers big enough for all belongings, curtains around beds, fans on all beds, air conditioning, decent free breakfast. Close to the centre of town. Bit confused about the difference in price of alcohol between reception & bar
Tattva was incredibly in every way. Beautiful facilities, lively atmosphere with the ability to meet lots of people and right downtown to see all the sights and go out at night. Would definitely stay here again when coming back to Porto. Highly recommended!
Great hostel!!! Perfect location, a lot of group activities available, the rooms and beds are extremely comfortable and the staff is definitely the great diferencial! Thanks everybody for the excellent reception! :)

Everything was fine ! Had a great stay!
So much fun at Tattva Hostel! The employees were simply fantastic and everything was excellent and well organized. My friend and I strongly recommend this place for those who want to visit Porto. Great atmosphere and wonderful people (Thank you André for your delicious pancakes!)
Very good beds, comfortable. Just a bit of a sterile atmosphere I think.
