    Ideal location to see all of Bari’s city center by foot. The staff is young and down-to-earth. Nice atmosphere altogether and helpfulness to take care of the bags prior to check-in and after check-out. Breakfast was only coffee, toast and corn flakes.

    Absolutely loved my stay at the Olive Tree! Such a friendly cosy atmosphere, really helpful staff with lots of ideas on what to do, where to eat etc. Fabulous day trip arranged by the hostel which was great value, generally felt really at home. The only thing I felt was missing was a comfy indoor seating area, like a lounge or living room. There is seating in the kitchen but it's not quite the same! Apart from that everything was just perfect :-)

    Small and clean hostel. Close to railway station, but far from historic center of Bari. There is no real common room apart from the kitchen.

    Pictures don’t do it justice. Noisy street that you can hear while sleeping. No air conditioner. Bare minimum breakfast. Only 25 euros but I wish I went somewhere else.

    The location is ok, but very noisy. Staff was nice. Facilities not great, as there is no space to sit and chill or have a comfy seat. Just a kitchen, which is closed to 8am. Had a very snoring person in the dorm and there was no room to go at night. In the Morning at 7.30 am I asked if I could use the kitchen, but they didn’t open it up. Even Staff was inside to prepare breakfast, I had to wait on the corridor. There are just 3 bathrooms, one is accessible through the kitchen. Not great
