    Located 5 minutes by walking from the city centre. Warm welcome by David and the staff. I went to have a drink with them in the evening to the typical local bar. Also, they provide a city map, padlock, free breakfast. Deeply enjoy my stay !

    I really like the place, it’s near train station, so the location was great. They offer breakfast, and that is a great plus. If you want to meet incredible and nice people, I would recommend the Olive tree, the staff is there for you, and they are so ready for anything you need, and I think that treatment impacts on the people staying in it, and creates the disposition talk and really get to know the other people. So I would totally go back to it.

    Very clean hostel located close to the train station - perfect for those arriving by train. The hostel lacks a common area but has a great balcony and kitchen to hang out in, and the staff are extremely accommodating and know the area well. Only downside is that there is no 24/7 reception, and the key to get inside the hostel after hours is quite dodgy and takes some time to open. The hostel has A/C at night which is great for southern Italy!

    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.
