We stayed here in August for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was a very reasonable price for a private bed with en-suite and the room was spacious, clean and comfortable- the beds were particularly comfortable! All of the staff were extremely helpful, especially Benji who took it upon himself to print us off a list of... More

Dear Emma, thank you so much for your review! It's always a pleasure for us to host people who like to explore our beautiful city. And if the weather is fine, riding a bike is the best way to do it. We are looking forward to host you next time! Best regards, Benji More

We spent two good nights in a three bed room at this hostel. The rooms were sizable with an very nice en suite and comfortable beds, however, they are in dire need of AC as the fan in the room wasn't enough. The hostels other facilities were great with a cafe bar with cheap espresso and other drinks, a chill... More

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

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...
