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...

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

Dear Nicole, thank you so much for your review, although so many months have passed since your stay at Tomato and your first, negative review on another website. First of all, Tomato Backpackers Hotel is a kind of hybrid between a hotel and a hostel: that is, a "backpackers hotel". In fact, we have both private and shared rooms; and... More

This is one of the best hostel I ever been, great location, clean, access to the kitchen at any time and great staff specially Beniamino and Annalisa were very helpful with any question I had. Next time I come back to Turin I'd definitely stay in this hostel again. Thank you Tomato Backpackers I had great time.

I stayed in the 4 bed dorm for 5 nights and I had a really good time. Everything is clean and there is a (very) basic breakfast included. The hostel is located 10 by foot to the train station Porta Nuova, 3 minutes from the Valentino park and around 25/30 minutes from the centre. The only thing that I did... More

Rooms are cosy with enough space. No TV which is an advantage. Social room, kitchen, loundry, breakfest for free. Very friendly hosts that will help with every matter. For the price we've paid, it was really fair. I strongly reccomend Tomato.
