    Beautiful surrounding area. Short walk to many shops and supermarket. Short walk to the old town as well. The staff were helpful giving me plenty of information about what to see and where to eat. The rooms were super clean likewise with the showers. Cleaning is a clear priority Kitchen facilities are also great.

    The staff here was wonderful and the accommodations were satisfactory. However, there were only two bathrooms so don’t expect to spend much time getting ready in the morning and expect for the bathrooms to have a wait. Breakfast was subpar, but it’s there if you need it!

    Amazing helpful welcoming staff. Small hostel that is well situated to the train and downtown / old town. Everything in walking distance. Door into the building has its lock broken, but the door into the hostel is well secured. Breakfast could easily be improved with some fruit, yoghurt, granola, peanut butter. Three shared bathrooms which rotated quickly. Little kitchen. Hand towels in each of the bathrooms would be really nice. Couple balconies. Highly recommended.

    Olive tree is a really nice hostel with friendly staff. The free breakfast is a nice perk but isn’t that substantial. The beds were really comfy and I slept well. There are only three bathrooms, so it can be a bit tricky trying to get a shower in the morning. Overall it’s a lovely hostel with friendly and helpful staff.

    The staff was incredibly kind, helpful, and welcoming at this small hostel. I stayed in the private room, which was huge and had its own balcony. The bathrooms were just okay (clean but old) and the location was close to the train station but not in the most interesting part of town. Overall, I really enjoyed my time in Bari and the staff helped me plan a day trip to Matera, which was also fantastic!
