Breakfast is a bit poor and consists of long-life products not freshly made stuff.
Great hostel! Nice location. The only negative thing is that we didn't have blankets and got cold at night, Otherwise very nice hostel.
First, I didn't even spend a night here because there was nobody to check me in. So I was sitting at 9 pm in front of the building and I decided to call them.They told me they changed my reservation and I have to walk to the other hotel.After half an hour of walking in town I've never been before during the night with my luggage I found the other place. In that hotel they charged me 70 euros for a night which a lot more! And now: after month and half I still didn't receive my refund.Bad service.
The B&B was easy to find, near the train station and not far from the city on foot. we stayed two nights and our last night in a nice room with a delightful bubble bath. the room was kind of dusty,but the bedlinnen were clean. The shower, toilet and actually anything with water use made a lot of noise. the bed was comfortable and the airco was working. The WIFI didn't work the whole time we stayed there. breakfast was cake, cookies, cornflakes, yoghurt. roberto the owner was a nice guy.
The only downside was that the owner requires that you call him to give an arrival time. We did not have a cell phone travelling so this was an annoyance, but the place is gorgeous, free breakfast and air conditioning (and your own remote!). Also the internet was temporarily down.
Firstly, there is no need to stay in Bari, if you are visiting Puglia, fly into Bari or Brindisi and go directly to Lecce, Gallipoli, or Otranto. There are no hostels in this part of Italy, so B&B's are viewed as an easy way to make money for property owners, but they do not offer any local advice or decent service. I needed to call the property owner 9 times in order for him to fetch me and take me to the property. The mattress was hard as a rock. There was no toilet paper. Terrible choice.
We only stayed here for a night as a stop over but the owner was so lovely. He picked us up and told us where the nice places were to eat for dinner and was very kind. The rooms are nice and clean - very much recommended if you are stopping over one the way to somewhere! Also walking distance from old town and train station
