    This was my first time in 37 years of staying in a shared room at a hostel and I was not disappointed. Tomato Backpackers is situated in a part of the city that simply comes alive at night; bars, restaurants and cafes on every street. I had good directions so knew where it was, which was a good job as... More

    Tomato is great. Authentic and cheap. Stopped in single room and it was adequate for my needs. Shower comfortable bed and quiet. The balcony looks out onto a courtyard that is pure Italy. It's not luxurious the breakfast is not going to fill you for long, the coffee is strong and the bottled beer is cheap. Excellent . I am... More

    The staff were super friendly and helpful. Facilities were great, everything was clean and tidy. Location was easy to find, and walking distance to most attractions. It was just so incredibly hot when i was there, it was almost impossible to sleep in the room.

    Dear Guest, thank you for your overall good review. This is an exceptionally hot summer, way beyond the average for our city. Moreover, we chose not to have any air conditioning system because we try to be as eco-friendly as possible and a/c has a huge impact on sustainability - especially for such a small structure like ours. We provide... More

    Tomato Backpackers Hotel is located in Turin, Italy near Porta Nuova (main station). This place is both a hostel and a hotel. There are small dorms and private rooms at Tomato Backpackers Hotel for travelers looking for a hostel or a hotel. The crafty decor makes the atmosphere seem like a modern Italian home, especially downstairs near the lobby. There're... More

    I would definitely highly recommend this very well run hostel, which felt almost more like a hotel, but more congenial; for value, with friendly & helpful Engl-speaking staff. Sights & eating v nearby

    This neat little hostel tucked away behind the main Pueto Nuevo railway station is spotless and verh convenient for restaurants and the city centre. The dorm we stayed in was spacious, with a small en suite bathroom. Towels are provided as are free refreshments and breakfast. The staff are very informative and helpful.

    Friends and I had a short stay here and it was the most convenient location. Close to train station and a great place to go exploring from. The area is fantastic for restaurants, bars and clubs. Very cool area. We had a private 3 bedroom room, everything was very clean and the bathroom was great and spacious.

    We stayed her for six nights in early June and could not have asked for a lovelier stay. You won't find a friendlier, more accommodating staff. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable, and when the temperature rose a fan was provided. The location is perfect for nightlife and evening dining, but also only about a 20 minute walk...

    Dear Guests, I really don't know how to thank you for your review! We chose to settle the Tomato Backpackers Hotel in San Salvario right because it's the liveliest and youngest area of the city; and I really appreciate that you enjoied it!

    Simply: Tomato was an excellent place to stay in Turin. As soon as you get in you realise that it's a quality place, with a really welcoming atmosphere. Lots of books (although beware that previous travellers have ripped pages out of the travel guides, so bring your own!) and signs about local activities (which are kept up to date) fill... More

    This is more of a hostel than a hotel, thus we felt it was overpriced for the service we were provided. Breakfast was very poor, no air-conditioning or fans (imagine that in the July heat in Italy), towels were not replenished, beds were not made, we felt quite unsafe overall. Other than that, the personnel were very nice and helpful,... More
