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, 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

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!

    Excellent location, central to walk to different neighborhoods. Included breakfast was great. Cool terrace, but a little dingey. Shakey bunk beds, poorly ventilated bathroom. Luggage storage room isn't locked. Laundry cost 8€ and the staff help explain the machines. I didn't find it to be very social.

    Overall it was an “okay” stay for the money. Other than most of the common areas being filthy and the bathroom disgusting it was fine. There was black mold all in the showers, toilet paper on the floors, and it was just disgusting. I was apprehensive to even take a shower. The area is good and the bed was comfortable.

    Good and bad points about this hostel. Location excellent, good breakfasts and welcome drink, dorm bunks ok (female 8), linen clean, excellent walking tour from hostel. Not so good: some disinterested barely helpful staff (not all staff), stained old carpet, untidy dirty rooftop deck also used for storage, no ventilation in showers so ceilings covered in mould. Dorm clean not thorough - found very dusty left behind clothing.

    The toilet seat is too small for the toilet. Bathrooms and toilets could use a clean.

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
