Hostelworld says

The stylish Tattva Design Hostel is located just around the corner from Sao Bento metro station and the furnicular. It features a large rooftop terrace, a full kitchen and rooms which are all ensuite. We particularly like their bunk beds, with feature privacy curtains, personal fans and underbed lockers. Hostelworld guests have highly recommended this hostel and say they'd stay here again; one guest told us, 'my favourite place was a terrace where we could sit in the evening having a drink and chatting with friends'.

Property Description

Tattva Design Hostel has an unbeatable location in the 'heart of Porto', and is part of the 'World Heritage' protected area. 50mts away from the metro (which has a link to the Airport) and S.Bento train station, and 5min walk to the main bus line (Rede Expressos). Tattva is also close to all the main city attractions: Se Cathedral, Sao Joao Theatre, D. Luis I bridge, Ribeira, Clerigos Tower. The main shopping streets in Porto, bars, restaurants, supermarkets are all also very close. The best nightlife spots in the centre of Porto are a mere ten minutes walk from the hostel. Located in a quiet area of Porto, perfect for resting, but at the same time really close to Porto city center if you want to party...!

Our Facilities: We believe that we've created a new level of comfort and intimacy in all our spaces, never forgetting a harmonious design aspect, and always with a friendly and informal atmosphere!. Two beautiful buildings have been recovered and totally refurbished to make the largest hostel in Porto - Tattva Design Hostel, with breathtaking views on the higher levels. Our rooms have large orthopedic beds, individual curtains in each bed providing full privacy, en-suite bathrooms, good heaters and individual fans, free Wifi internet in the whole building, spacious individual lockers with free locks, key card access and wheelchair accessible

Check out our common areas: For the sunny days relax in our fantastic outdoor terrace, and enjoy a drink from our terrace bar. Feel in a mood for a BBQ? Let's do it! We also have an outstanding aquarium lounge (3mts aquarium with exotic salt water fish), a cozy reading lounge, a fully equipped kitchen but if you feel lazy, don't worry, have dinner with us in our Tattva Restaurant & Bar, A restaurant open to the public where we serve delicious typical portuguese food as well as Porto's famous typical dish: Francesinha. And why not join us for the different activities each day? Try our Portuguese Lessons, Free Walking Tour, Pub Crawl, Lazy Sundays, and much much more!

We look forward to welcoming you in our 24H reception with a friendly , multilingual and amusing staff, always ready to help you in anyway possible and give the best tips of Porto's delights.

    Superb

    18 Jun 2018
    Stayed 3 nights and i was very pleased by pretty much evrything. Staff is nice and will help you with anything you need. Beds are comfy but for me (185cm tall) a little bit small, beds have curtains which adds on privacy. lockers under beds secured by your own card. Bathrooms clean, hot water unlimited, wifi works great everywhere. Breakfast is very nice: different kinds of bread, ham, cheese, vegetables and fruit, cereals, jams, pancakes, nutella, eggs and sousages. Would recommend to everyone!

    We stayed here 3 nights! Great location to everything in Porto. Breakfast was really good. Rooms were nice and spacious with big lockers under the bed. The guy that checked us in was super friendly and helpful. We were in the building away from the main building, kitchen wasn’t working at the time but didn’t bother us. One thing was that the bathroom was in the room so you could hear people showering in the morning. Enjoyed our stay would go back and recommend

    Location was great and overall pretty clean. Walking tour was good and breakfast was yum. Hard with PowerPoints in large room of 12. Bathroom was small for a room of 12 hard to get in and around and not get water everywhere. Air con wasn’t working and it was hot.

    One of the worst hostels I’ve been too! The showers and bathroom were disgusting, calcium and dirt seemed caked layer over layer! Plus the wood around the sink was all rotted and lifted up! To add to the experience, check out is at 11:30 and at 11 the ladies were cleaning the room while being on their phones loudly and basically shoving you out the way while you’re trying to get packed up and out of there, never felt so rushed out especially before check it time! I would avoid like the plague.

Tattva Design Hostel says

I'd say our most unique features are our beds, each of which has orthopaedic mattresses, curtains, an individual fan, a reading light and a power socket. Plus there's ensuite bathrooms in all rooms. Did I mention our three-metre tropical aquarium?
All the main attractions are within walking distance from our hostel. Within two minutes you can get to Se Cathedral, the Douro River, D. Luis Bridge, Sao Bento train and metro stations and the Rede Expresso bus service . I particularly recommend visiting the port wine caves in Ribeira de Gaia. They're about 15 minutes' walk away.
Being the largest hostel in Porto, and having such a wide range of amenities and activities, we would say that this is not a traditional party hostel, although the night spots are only 10 minutes away. The main age group of our guests is between 25 and 35, but we have had had happy guests from ages 12 to 60 - many of our guests had never stayed in a hostel before.
We can accommodate up to 15 people at a time who need disabled facilities. The entire building and all the common areas are accessible to them; we have an elevator and a wheelchair elevator platform. Quishan & Himali, Owners
