Stayed for three nights in a single room, just a bed and a very small table with a lamp on it, en suite bathroom extremely small. Bed is average comfort, bathroom with bare minimum accessories, cleaning could be improved. But the best thing comes at night when the hostel is full of guests you need to bring ear plugs if...

I stayed two nights in a 4-bed dorm. The room was ensuite, super nice and clean. The hostel is in a very good location at walking distance from the train station and the city centre, which makes it a perfect base to go around and explore the city. Apart from the location, I loved the atmosphere, the commitment to sustainability... More

Perhaps this place is just too young and hip for me, but I do appreciate its attempts at retro cool and it mostly works well. The staff are also very helpful and value good for a city centre. Pity about the noisy plumbing- foam ear plugs are a must!

The hostel is located in one of the most characteristic district of Turin, San Salvario, full of bars, café and restaurants. It is near Parco Valentino, the train station and ten minutes walk from the city center. The staff is very kind and helpful. The hostel is quite recent and everything is perfectly maintained.

Friendly and helpful staff, good location and great value. 4 bed dorms are spacious and comfortable. Only downside was the shower ensuite shower cubicle which was very small, making it difficult to move around to wash

Rooms are available starting mid-afternoon. Having arrived mid-morning, I was able to leave my luggage in a locked area until then. When I did get it later on, I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious and impeccable single room, all in white, with small bathroom and shower. Unfortunately, the hot water took a long time in coming up to the... More
