    Best hostel I have ever been, staying here help me so much to get out the most of my holiday in Puglia region. The hostel has everything, the staff is awesome, location is perfect, train station 5 mins, old city 10 mins, restaurants everywhere. They have organised trips for a really reasonable amount of money, in 2019 it was €20 for a whole day experience with a local guide, really nice man.

    Just to make clarify: there are lockers! Great hostel. Really clean, spacious rooms, good Wi-Fi and amazing friendly staff. Also im the evening people are hanging out on the terrace, easy to socialize. And what is great as well that they don't charge you foe things as the lock on the locker or using the facility after check out. Would definitly come back here.

    This hostel was a bit of a walk from the old town but other than that was pretty good. The staff were really helpful and even offered for me to leave some of my luggage there while I continued my travel to come back and pick it up. Highly recommend going on a tour with gianfranco that you can organise through the hostel!
