Where I stayed
I eventually found the hostel, which is more like sharing a hotel room with 2 others rather than a dorm, and settled down for the evening.
Upon awaking this morning, I found that one of my fellow guests had buggered off. He must have been in a rush, because not only did he take all of his things, but he also mistakenly went in to the pocket of my coat (hanging on a hook) and accidentally stole my bloody wallet on his way out.
Luckily he only got away with about 25 euros, my drivers license and a debit card, so it wasn't such a huge loss (I keep my credit cards separate and by me all the time.) The thing I lost the most however, was time. I spent almost the entire day either cancelling cards, ordering new ones or sitting in police stations waiting to be interviewed by people who speak even less English than I do Italian.
Eventually it was all sorted though, so I decided to cheer myself up with a trip to the Museum of the Risorgimento, which was ...closed for renovation. By that point I had had enough of wandering around central Turin, so I headed back to my hostel, where I proceeded to walk 15 minutes to a Launderette.
All in, probably not the best day of my trip so far, but I had a cracking pizza and chips for 6 euros for dinner, and some lovely melon ice cream in Turin.
Turin is a lovely town to walk around, too...
Off to Genoa tomorrow, hopefully nothing will be stolen between now and then.
