Tomato Backpackers Hotel is the ideal place where curious travelers can stop by to live the city of Turin.
The building is located in San Salvario area, in the center of the city, few minutes walk from the Porta Nuova train station, the bus stop to Caselle airport and the metro station. Moreover, this area is very well-served by public transport and just three blocks from the Valentino Park, the historical green area along the Po river.
There are 19 rooms (singles, doubles, one triple and dorms), all with a private bathroom, 200 m2 of common areas and a private backyard. So, at Tomato there’s room to share ideas and experiences with the other guests in complete relax.
The Staff will help you to explore Turin, supporting you to choose among the museums and the cultural events and to find the restaurants, the clubs and the bars that satisfy your expectations. Discover the city center walking, or rent some bikes from the bike sharing nearby! If you arrive here by car, you can book a parking lot just in front of the hotel entrance, and forget about you car during the whole stay. If you come by train, that’s even better: eco-friendliness is very important to us!
Our breakfast is very simple and devoid of packaged products; there are recycling bins on every floor, dispenser for soap and shampoo/shower gel in each bathroom and a free water (still, sparkling and hot for free tea) supplier at the bar - instead of polluting plastic bottles. Our concern for the environment has been officially recognized by the European Ecolabel, an environmental-friendliness certificate that requires the passing of many strict tests.
The atmosphere of Tomato Backpackers Hotel is informal: you can sit at the table in front of the bar and chat with other guests, or play guitar or ping pong. We chose not to have television! If you want to enjoy some peacefulness, you can use the backyard and borrow a book from our well-provided bookshelves. If you want to write home, remember that wi-fi is free and accessible in the whole structure; there’s also an internet point (1 computer) you can always use for free.
In San Salvario area, you can eat almost any kind of food: from the ethnic restaurants to the most renowned ones, every kind of food is at hand. Last but not least, don’t miss the night life: local people come to this area to have fun and to share a night off with friends.
