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

Super clean. Nice and helpful staff! Each room comes with its own bathroom. The location is great for going out for drinks and local cuisine. Recommend staying here for a low cost hostel. Common room has several books about traveling in Italy, which is helpful for planning your next destination.

We stayed in Tomato 2 nights, the experience was fantastic and relaxing. It is located in the position where all the main sightseeing spots are nearby. There are also a lot of local restaurants in the same area. The hostel looks more like a proper hotel, the room and the social area (lounge and the little back garden) are all... More

I stayed in a lovely, clean and tidy, single bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a balcony over-looking the street. The staff were lovely and really helpful and spoke excellent English. The location was really convenient with many restaurants and bars within 2 minutes walk. I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in Turin!!

Rooms are simple but nice and clean. The lobby and breakfast room are cosy and confortable as the backyard for a cigarette before sleeping. Breakfast is organic and valuable. Location easy to reach from Porta Nuova station and rich of bars restaurant and nightlife. Great value for a reasonable price.
