    Hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed in! Centrally located, clean and very friendly. Both the volunteer staff and the owner are extremely friendly and all around great people. The hostel is on the smaller side, therefore it's really easy to get to know the other residents, and find people to explore the area, or even just share a beer with.

    We had an awesome stay at Olive Tree. David and all his staff were lovely and very helpful and provided some stellar food recommendations. The rooms were clean and the locations was great! My friend left her earrings and the staff were even willing to get them back to us. Overall, a brilliant hostel.

    The Olive Tree is a very friendly place- run by a really helpful and caring international team. They were very kind to let me have a very, very late checkout - without kicking up any sort of fuss. I really appreciate that, while I was deciding what to do next with my travels in Puglia. Dorms are spacious, and there are the most amazing balconies! A generous breakfast is included. Location is very good for railway, but a little far from the Old Town and nightlife. Very happy to have stayed there.

    Everything was fine, the only thing I didn't like is the early closing time of the reception. My plane was late and I had to take a cab from the airport to make it.

    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
