    It wa the absolute best hostel I have ever been on!! The staff were sooo nice and lovely and the owner was a f****g legend! I left with the feeling that I wanted to stay for way longer. They focus a lot on the communication between guests and staff and make sure there is an overall good vibe. I NEED to go back!!

    Loved my stay at Olive Tree! Staff were great and helpful, the hostel itself was clean and bright, and the beds were relatively comfortable as far as hostel bunks go. The breakfast was simple but I think that’s standard for hostel breakfast offerings. I would stay here again! 😊

    I recommend this hostel! The staff was super friendly and I met a bunch of interesting people there. The dorms are clean and the showers as well and the breakfast is nice. The only thing I could complain about is the fact that it is not so close to the city center (but still reachable at a walking distance).

    Nice place, the staff were really nice and the owner is so nice and caring. Just too bad there are not rooms more smaller for like 4/6 people in it because 8 in a room is a lot and you don’t sleep so well.

    We had a very nice time in that hostel! We meat some lovely people there we might stay friends with for a long time. I loved the vibe it made you feel welcomed and independant at the same time. The explaination about the places of interest in the city was very clear and the map was too! It was close to the station and quite close to the center. The owner was around and he was friendly. The breakfast was nice.

    Olive Tree is a very cute and cozy hostel like you're used to for traveling. It wasn't that busy and there wasn't a great atmosphere coming from the guests, but the staff was very fun. The kitchen is nice and they have this cute garden. The AC wasn't really alive so I would not recommend staying here when it's 40C outside, but otherwise, it's great! Bari is an undiscovered piece of Italy and there are many day trips possible, as the staff will advise you.
