In a nutshell, Combo offers a delightful combination of a hostel, bar-restaurant, radio station and a boutique.
This is the sort of hostel where you’re likely to extend your stay, not once but twice.
Guess what? This is a sister hostel to Combo in Bologna, Venice and Milan. Whilst the amenities on offer here are similar in all of them, it’s Torino that has managed to do everything BIGGER thanks to the size of the building itself.
Here’s our big guide to the best hostels in Italy. A perfect guide for you to plan your backpacking Italy adventure.

Combo Torino Hostel in Review
There’s no time to waste and honestly, we’re so excited to introduce you to Combo Torino that it’s about time we jump into the review, what d’ya say?!
To ease you in slowly and get the exciteable vibes flowing, check out this short video that highlights the wonders of Combo.
Combo Torino is a 5 Star Hostel in Turin, Italy because…
1. Local Artisans support the Sustainable Practises of Combo
Being so closely located to Europe’s largest, multi-ethnic market on Corso Regina Margherita, Porta Palazzo, Combo is in the perfect position to invest in the work of local producers.
And invest well they have!
Much of their interior furniture has been created and supplied by local artisans, and some of the furniture is made from recycled materials.
When it comes to supplying the onsite restaurant with fresh raw food, they always make sure to buy from Porta Palazzo markets’ local producers, too – yum!
Relax your tired legs on locally made furniture whilst biting down on super fresh local produce, thanks Combo!
2. Fire Station + Contemporary & Functional Design
Remember when we said Combo used to be a fire station? Well, one of the dominant colours continues to be red; a wonderful way to recall the original identity of the building.
Mixed in with loft-like architecture and tailor-made furniture, Combo is characterised by an essential and functional design.
We really love the bed spaces which are ideal for sleeping and relaxing. Especially in the shared rooms where beds come with a little privacy screen.
The added bonus of a contemporary design is that the high level of cleanliness is really obvious!
There’s also no way you could feel cramped here, no matter which space you’re in. The ceilings are high, the windows big and the simplicity of the furniture automatically makes the bedrooms feel more spacious.
3. Unique Rhythms of Combo Radio
It’s not every day you come across a hostel that has its very own radio station, right?
“Combo Radio will guide you through the rhythms of the day thanks to a constant flow of carefully selected sounds.”
Sit in the lounge-bar area and enjoy radio shows as you do some work, or bop along to music as you enjoy a coffee at Cafè Santa Barbara or the inner courtyard area.
Yet if you’re keen to spend your days exploring, fear not; Combo host music events, art residencies and workshops each week that are also open to the public.
So, just make sure you set some time aside during your stay to experience all of these fun opportunities!
Oh and let’s not forget the special brunch menu that’s available every weekend at the onsite bar-restaurant!
The kitchen is open from early morning ’til late offering a multitude of tastes and flavors inspired by local markets.
4. Enjoyable Vibes for All
A great aspect of Combo Torino is that it’s not just a space for travellers that have booked into a room. The many events and big communal spaces are also open to the public.
“Combo is a meeting place for travelers, artists and locals in search of a space to unwind and get inspired.”
Let’s have a sneak peak at the amenities on offer here:
Big lounge (with corners & private spots)
Cafe (coffee, cocktails, aperitifs)
Alongside the weekly event schedule it’s so easy to meet other people in a relaxed way here.
The lounge/bar area is definitely the best spot in the entire hostel. Simply unwind with a drink, get some work done, socialise, listen to music or read a book… really, it’s so perfectly designed for all of your indoor activities either alone or with friends!
And guess what? Almost all the rooms have a private bathroom, plus shared bathrooms on each floor with steam showers. That widens your smile, right?
Private rooms, mixed & female-only dorms + a large loft that accommodates 16 people – for sure a perfect blend for a wide range of travellers.
5. Staff that are always available
Combo is ran by young, multilingual people that genuinely care about your stay being a fun and memorable one.
Don’t be shy to approach staff at reception and ask them all about local activities and events in the city.
Good to know: Reception is open limited hours, but you can always ask the bar-restaurant staff if you need something.
Our Combo Torino Review in a Nutshell
So, what’s our verdict of Combo Torino? We give it 5 stars!
Surely by now you’re also convinced that this hostel is well worth a visit. I mean, it stands out as special for many reasons.
Super clean contemporary design, modern amenities, weekly events, huge communal spaces…
The cafe comes with a view over the famous market and let’s not forget; you’ll be sleeping in a former fire station and that’s pretty cool.
See you there!
