    Awesome location, walking distance to everything I wanted to see. The reception lady from the Netherlands (sorry I can't remember her name) was amazing, super friendly and gave me lot's of great suggestions on what to do and see which I really appreciated seeing I only had one afternoon and didn't do any research! Very clean 7 comfortable hostel and felt super secure. Room was quite noisy & the light kept getting turned on throughout the night but that's what you get in an 8 bed dorm

    This is a great hostel tucked away near enough to the train station to be convenient but far enough away that it's not overly loud or anything. I found the staff helpful and friendly, and really appreciated their input on what to do and see in Bari and the surrounding area. My only suggestion is that the central courtyard could be used with couches and a gazebo for a more conductive place for travelers wanting to meet each other outside the kitchen area, but I don't have any real complaints.

    A conveniently situated hostel, not far from the centre of the city and very close to the railway stations. I liked very friendly atmosphere and the trip to Alberobello and Polignano a Mare organised by Gianfranco. The ladies in the reception are super helpful and the owner is also very friendly. Well recommended!!

    Even though i stayed only for one night at the Olive Tree (Bari), i was amazed from the first moment by the cleanliness of the hostel. Another person had proposed to me to go to this hostel, it is one of the best in Bari! Breakfast is included in the price, so go for it! :)

    This hostel is well located, a 7 minute walk from Bari Centrale and a nice 15 minute walk to the old town. Super helpful and accommodating staff. There is a kitchen you can use to cook. Breakfast is included in the rate.

    The staff were super friendly and amazing, theres three bathrooms (although two of them have big windows to the high traffic balcony and the curtains are sheer) a good kitchen and a good location. There wasn't a key for the room and it had a glass door right in front of the reception which kept a light on all night, but with staff like that and an actual kitchen who cares. Would recommend.

    The staff was so friendly! I highly recommend booking your with them. The rooms were quaint and there were only three restrooms but that wasn’t an issue when I was there. Beautiful balcony and great location.

    This was a great hostel to stay in for my 1 night in Bari. I was catching the 19:30 ferry to Greece, and even though check-out was at 10:00, they let me stay and sit on the balcony until I was ready to leave. Wish that there were a few more washrooms, there were only three for the entire place. Other than that, good location, easy walking distance to things. Only about 10 minutes to the main train station, and about 30 minutes to the port.

    Wonderful staff, I only stayed one night but they were sure to accomodate everyone’s wishes. The location isn’t my ideal situation, however the hostel is beautifully quaint & has excellent balconies to enjoy a beverage on in the morning, afternoon, or evening.
