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)
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.
very nice, cosy hostel, i liked it :)

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.
A lot of thought and care has been put into the hostel, and as a result it's a great place to stay. Kitchen is well equipped, just a little small. Some of the bathrooms could use a shelf in the shower to put soap, etc. A little out of the centre, but easy to get to once you figure out transportation. That being said, figure out your transport before you get there - hostel website tells you which tram/buses you can take, but find out where the stops are and how to get tickets.
Everything very good, the only thing that was inconvenient for us was quite late breakfast (8-10 am.).
We arrived late in the day due to some issues with the train. But we emailed him and he said it was no problem. We were able to check in at 9. We also had the private room which was really nice. Would come back.
Nice little hostel in a beautiful building. Staff is friendly and helpful but office opening hours are somewhat limited. It is reasonably close to the center. Good place to meet other travelers, but not a party hostel.
An impressive hostel, clean friendly and full of nice features. I would absolutely recommend this to others.
Had a bit of a walk to get here, not very central, but aside from that, it was an excellent hostel! Would definitely recommend. Very clean, nice bathrooms/showers, small common area, but really nice, social and easy to meet people. Excellent breakfast, and very kind, nice staff as well. I really liked the atmosphere, the breakfast and how social in a easygoing laid back way it is.
Very clean and comfortable hostel, not to mention very affordable. The location would be the biggest negative, it being a less-well kept area of the city. As far as I could tell it was perfectly safe, just not the prettiest part of the city. In the end, it is only a 20 minute walk away from the center, so it is not as bad as it might seem. Would definitely recommend.
