This hostel is small but very clean in fact. Beds, sheets, towels, and breakfast were ok for a small hostel. Bathrooms were enough for people in the hostel. The people who came those days were young boys and ladies, most of them very nice and helpful to others. The only thing I odd not like was the neighborhood and the long distance from the city center, though there is a tram and buses that cover the rout to the hostel.
This was my first hostel of a three month European tour, and I found it to be the perfect testing grounds for hostel manners - the Guests, mostly student age, were very friendly, and though the location requires a bus ride or a ~25 minute walk into the old city, I felt safe walking in groups. The facilities are great - there's always seemed to be an available bathroom and the rooms were cheerfully color coded. Breakfast was okay - organic emphasis was clear, but the options are limited.

Once in the door it's another world to the neighbourhood. U need a to enter. for staff to checkin. Mopping the floor after a shower is a pain in the arse. Kitchen is small, good if on ur own. Rooms r ok, but no aircon. The problem is the area. Its scruffy, dirty and full of people on the street. To be polite, u wouldn't wear a rolex here. With a massage parlour nxt door too ;) I won't be this place.
Overall good hostel. Didn't like that the individual dorm rooms didn't lock but overall it was a good hostel, doing things in a more sustainable way.
Great little hostel. Beds were comfy, bathrooms clean, and the staff was nice. Really nice coming area, and easy to meet people. I really liked it here. The kabob resturant nearby is really cheap, and serves huge meals aswell, that surely was a plus. Only downside is that the neighborhood is a little sketchy.
There is no air con but the street is quiet at night so the breeze in summer was nice.
the best hostel with artistic skills by their owners I recommend it to every body going to turin
Great hostel in Torino, I will recomande it to every person who wants to go in Torino! Great breakfast, room and common room! I will probably come back in this place.
Superb stay in this hostel. I wish I had stayed longer. Alejandro was great (even left his number in case of emergency). You have free Wi-Fi, Internet and printer access. As an eco-bio hostel, breakfast was provided with fruits (also Nutella). Even though it is not in the centre, easily accessible with tram and bus. Definitely Recommend. Good pizza place nearby (christinas). Also the door has bamboo drawing on it- not very evident to find the door.
Only stayed one night because the other hostel was booked out. Initially I had the room to myself but was joined later in the night by two young ladies who moved rooms due to a man in their room being sleazy and smelling bad. The owner was very good in helping the ladies and dealing with the obnoxious drunk man. He also went out of his way to help me the next morning with a phone card issue. Thank you Alejandro. The room definitely need an air conditioner as it was really hot.
...i rated just 3/5 for location, staff and atmosphere for these reasons: -location: it's not the best place in turin, expecially at night (tip: take a taxi to go back to the hostel at night) -staff: as the reception is just open in the afternoon, i couldn't say "hey, the staff was so funny and cool!" -atmosphere: as before...i think this is more a hostel where people don't get too much in touch with other guests (maybe i might be wrong)
Had difficulties with heat and noise, and the location is not too great. Still had an amazing stay.
It's just outside the center, but you can easily reach it by public transport or by foot from station Porta Nuova in about 45 minutes.
Very nice hostel, good atmosphere and friendly, helpful staff.
Worst hostel experience I've had! The hostel owner was very rude. The reception desk is empty almost of the time so there is no one to ask questions to. The atmosphere feels dull, and above all the hostel is very far from the city and in a sketchy area. Not recommended...
No AC, and in a terrible location. Its on a main road, so you have the choice between opening the window at night and dealing with traffic, or being terribly hot. Nice common area though.
I think this is the only place in Turin/Torino for backpackers. It's fine, had no problems here, but lacks a bit of atmosphere. Clean, tidy, and very secure.
great experience! really recommend this one. very clean, well equiped and nice interior... the location is not the best there is, but has a good connection with tram/bus.
It''s the very nice atmosphere, which make this place very lively (lovely). Lots of peoples there behave like this. The place is a little far away from the centre, but you need only one tramline. I have been more there, so I knew my way.
