Bear in mind this is a 1 star budget place, but on this basis of judgement it is very good! The bed was comfortable and the room immensely clean. The shared shower/toilet rooms, of which there were two, were also kept clean. Rooms were cleaned daily and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The location could not be better. It is right in city centre a stone's throw from the city's two main attractions: the Mole and the Egyptian museum. It is a bit far from the train station, but the route is easy to navigate and the walk is very charming especially when made in the evening. It was a little bit pricey, but Turin in general is quite an expensive city and you'd struggle to find a hotel like this for cheaper. The only drawback was they didn't offer breakfast, but overall a very pleasant stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
