    I stayed for two nights at the Olive Tree hostel in Bari and enjoyed the friendly atmosphere at this place the most. I traveled solo and even if I were not lucky enough to meet many extraverted solo travelers, the hostel stuff made me feel so welcome that I felt like part of their group in a second. I'm giving this hostel the highest grading and I absolutely recommend it to other travelers! Thank you for making me feel special

    Fantastic hostel. Staff were volunteers from WorkAway (I believe), who always spent time in the common areas to interact with the hostel guests rather than shying away in their rooms. Super kind, super helpful. It was my first hostel and I’ve had a great impression of hostels as a result👍🏼

    If a student dorm would be a hostel, it would be this. The hostel is only one floor with bedrooms that fit up to 8-10 people, so space is tight. A small kitchen that can be used is available and the hostel also has an inner yard where you can meet other travellers. But what really makes this hostel great is the atmosphere. The staff feel more like fellow travellers and are happy to share anything with you. Great hostel if you like to get to know loads of different people.
