This is some kind of student residence, so expect lots of noisy youths at various times throughout the day. Dorm room was very spacious and clean, although the air-conditioning was rattling far too loudly. WiFi coverage limited only to common areas. Breakfast was extra but inexpensive, although fairly meagre. Hostel is very close to the Dora train station, which is good for getting to/from the airport, but the city centre is about a 15min bus ride away.
In general, it is indeed a value added oncept to stay in this hostel especially if you arrive by plane. Staff is friendly ad informative
It's a nice hostel with students roommates and warm chatting. The staff is nice although the location is bit of far from the center.
Far from the the historic centre, but clean and good facilities. Free wifi, and definitely the most spacious hostel I've stayed in yet!
The hostel does the job and gives you a bed for the night, its nothing great, just a place to sleep. Its like a hostel/hotel combo? Anyway, its a wee way out of the city but you can nab a ticket from GTT Dora station for the bus and trams, so easy to get into the city. There is also a mall/super market around the corner so you can nab your cheap dinner etc.
Big confortable rooms with lots of space and lookers with no locks. Very basic breakfast (bread ceral, juice and some jams). Really slow Wi fi conection.
Clean, bright, welcoming. Not in a vet good area.streets littered, groups hanging out here and there, lot's of graffiti. The staff was very helpful. The rooms very clean.
While I was there the heat was so intense that I could hardly think. The staff were friendly, and the room was nice. There were no cooking washing clothes facilities that upi would normaly expect, and the staff couldn't recommend local establishements for these services. The breakfats was sparce, and the other meals failed to materialize.
The Hostel is far further from the train station and main city centre than I expected and not so close to the bus stop. The receptionist was the rudest I have experienced yet with far too much attitude and highly emotional about criticism and general banter. Very awkward. The rooms have AC but it is hardly noticeable and the windows have a blind that does not open so not a lot of air circulates. WiFi only in select areas, not the rooms. I wouldnt go there again, highly dissapointed.
The security was poor because anybody could take my key room at the reception. There were also no lockers in the room. The hostel also is a bit far from the city centre. (30 min). On the good side, the room was huge, without bunk beds, with a large bathroom and a efficient air conditioning.
The location is quite far from city centre. However, the super good transportation network of Turin solves this problem. The room looks like hotel with 2 star. Unfortunately, I had problem with the air conditioner in my room and the staff was not kind enough to help me solve this. He just asked me to stop using the air conditioner anf opened the door. That's why I can not review it highly though the hostel is good.

all the staffs were nice and tried to help. But one staff has poor English and doesn't know much about the environment. I have paid and bought Gold Card on line but I still don't know my num and I stll have to pay service charge! Why????????
My stay was ok, it's really a basic place where you sleep only. It's a bit far from the city center, but you could easily get there by bus. I'll go back there, if I have to go in turin again.
The staff was incredibly friendly especially Matteo. He made me feel at home. For the value of Open011, you WILL not find any better in the city of Turino.
