Just stayed here overnight to make a connecting train. Not a bad walk from Porta Susa but there is nothing around the hostel at all and it feels like a shady neighborhood. I had to leave early and wanted to get my 5 euro key deposit back but the worker was not there at 8 like advertised so I had to leave and catch my train and the 5 euro.
The owner doesn't speak english (intalian, spanish and portuguese :) but he is very nice. The hostel is far from city center, but it was the only choice that we had last minute to stay after the Europe League final in Turin.
The location is so far of the center ofTurin. The reception close at 10 pm and the staff are the owner and his wife. I didn't like the atmosphere, so sad. It costs more than it offers
I've stayed in many hostels and this was easily the worst. BY A LOT. There character limit isn't enough to accurately portray how godawful this place was (Russian gulags would be more inviting). It's in a terrible location; rooms were filthy; toilet/showers were even worse; I was in the bottom bunk and was paranoid the top would collapse on top of me; wifi was patchy at best, and I was scammed out of 5 Euro. I'd say avoid like the plague but I'd rather be infected and sleep in Porta Nuova
There is no kitchen, reception was closed sometimes, and staffs aren't very prepared to welcome guests. However, the rooms are very good.

Nice people, but a little bite far away from the city center
There was no toilet paper in the toilet, at least on the floor where I was. Staff was helpful and nice.
One of the worst Hostels where I've ever been. Very poor atmosphere, without any place inside the building where was possible to stay in relax for reading or something else. Anyway, the bed was comfortable!
This is a strange hostel but it is clean and warm and the area is nice with everything around.

Staff only spoke a bit of English. Hostel is far away from the city centre!
They speak very little English. They weren't as organized or accommodating as I'd hoped. Come here basically for a place to sleep if you're in a pinch.
The reception is not very pleasant, not for the staff, but for the place where it is. I thought I was entering someone's house and that I was bothering the whole time. The toilet was not clean at all. There was a nice terrace out of the room, and the people I met there were really nice. Wouldn't stay again there.
The place itself was rather strange.There were no powerplugs in the dorm and the light in the bathroom did not work. The staff was strange: they did not speak English and I felt unsafe. I was happy to leave!
Avoid this place! This was my worst stay ever. Check in is until 10 pm. Nobody told me that, I came a little bit later and I have to pay a 10 EURO fee. Hostel is on outskirts of Turin, so I had to take taxi to get there, (I aid a lot) Finally when I got there I met really rude woman not speaking any English. Hostel was really dirty and empty. Of course no elevator but this is just a detail in comparison to other issues. It is better to rent some room somewhere else than spending a minute there.
It's really far away from anything you might want to see in Torino.
It is so far a way, with no public transit connections. Staff was quite unpleasant and the level of privacy for example with toilet use was negligible.
Oy. I think the owners genuinely try to make the place decent, but there's just too much working against them. First of all, they can barely speak English. Once when the internet was down, it was nearly impossible to explain to them what the problem was. Beyond that, the walls of my room were literally crumbling apart -- pieces of the door frame were cracking and falling off. At the time I stayed there, the place was overrun by Ukrainian athletes in their 50s, and it was very strange.
