Torino!! We loved our stay here. Best pizza in the North of Italy. Go across the street and ask for Lorenzo. The Bamboo Hostel is very clean and stylish. Alejo is a very nice receptionist. Free towels are hard to come by, and they had them!! Highly underrated place to visit.


La zona non è il massima, ma è ben collegato al centro. The area is not top, but it is easy to get to the city centre.


Great hostel! Very pleasant rooms, very good breakfast and very clean. Two things to note: it is not in the center or near the stations (which is not a problem because you get easy) and income is only until 19:00. However, I had a downside and the manager was very considerate of me. I recommend it.

So check in is only until 7pm. If you are going to arrive later bad luck. Also they have no maps of the city or any suggestions. Other than the staff. The hostel itself is quite good, it is clean and good facilities.

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hear that your stay was not as expected. About check-in time, it's clear before and after doing a reservation that if you arrive out of the reception opening hours you just need to arrange an appointment and we did not receive any information for your arrival in order to be ready for you with all the information you needed. we will do our best to improve our performance on this kind of situations in order to be better everyday. Thanks for your suggestions and have a nice day! Bamboo Staff.


No complaints here! It was clean, warm, and the continental breakfast was nice. A very good value.

The problem with the Bamboo Hostel is the neighborhood. A very wired and unfriendly one. It is far from the center, but close to major bus lines stops!! But the security in the hostel itself is great!! Never felt unsafe while inside. The staff is friendly, but they are not in the front desk and sometimes, not in the hostel. Even with the poor location I would easily recommend this hostel!!


The hostel is totally adequate and I would recommend it if you stay in Torino. The location is sketchy ghetto/immigrant/roma area and Torino is kind of a hole anyways.


Such lovely staff with good recommendations about what to do. Really helpful. About 10 mins away by tram/bus from centre of city. Can walk from Torino Porta Nuova station but will take about 40 mins with bags etc. Clean rooms and nice breakfast (cereal, toast, all day tea/coffee).


Great hostel, very clean and weel located. Had a very nice time there.

Very kind and helpful staff.


Bit of a walk from train station but nice clean rooms and good kitchen.


Clean, nice and a great welcome and breakfast, really enjoined our stay !


Nice hostel, quiet and clean, easily reachable from the centre and train station. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was great! Would definitely go back! :)


A very nice hostel, helpful staff with a good environment. Met nice people there as well.


The only thing to say is that the hostel is a bit far away from the center. But staff is really friend, facilities are great and though a little expensive for a hostel, it is worth it.


I felt very safe here, staff was very nice and it is very comfortable here. I recommend this hostel as it has all one needs, is not expensive and is only just a bit north of the center of the city.


Very nice environment. Would recommend. Don't expect much from breakfast though, they only give you bread loafs and other things to put on it. Very minimal. Otherwise, good place to stay.


This place was great but VERY hard to find...I would suggest outside sign sideways. Also suggest shelf over the sinks ....would definAtely return.. very well managed


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.
