    Had a really good time at Olive Tree, wonderfully kind staff, comfortable bed, really good location... the outdoor spaces (large balconies and terrace) were a great bonus! I would 100% percent recommend!

    Such a brilliant hostel! So welcoming and fun, Dave has a really great set up here and was so helpful - we had to cut our trip short and only had one day in Bari, but he gave us the best bits to do in that time and we will definitely be returning. Such a great atmosphere and lots of great people at this hostel. Really comfy beds too! Thanks for having us xx

    The perfekt stay in Bari. Th staff is super, the location is good and the hostel has just the wibe I love. The breakfast is simpel but good. I got lots of tips for what to do in the city and daytrips to other places to see. They help me out with finding lokal bus for my next destination and more. I extended my stay and spent 5 days there, and I will defently stay there again next time in Bari.

    My favourite hostel from this trip to Italy!! The atmosphere was great, with some really lovely people and very friendly workaway staff, particularly Teresa, Gabi and Giulia, who came out with guests. This made it feel really chilled out and informal, a great vibe. They also talk you through a map of the city and give recommendations too. I would say the showers could be updated slightly to be more modern, but that is all. Slept really well in a comfortable bed and liked having a balcony too!

    For the price, I did expect more of a pleasing ascetic to the hostel as it's all pretty basic and Airbnb can be rented for a few euros more. Beds are comfortable and nice pillows. The balcony door rattles everyone the bedroom door is shut so that would be good to be secured properly as when you sleep next to it it is noisy. Curtains could do with being thicker as they let in a lot of light. Staff were very friendly. Overall, I'd stay again but mainly for the social aspect of staying in a hostel

    Nice hostel, lovely staff, vibe was a bit boring not much going on but perhaps pre/ post covid it would be different? Also needs more common areas there is only the kitchen and the balcony.

    The hostel was alright. Staff was really friendly and super helpful. The hostel doesn’t have any good common areas since it’s only the kitchen and the balcony. Both close pretty early at night. Also no power outlets by the beds and kitchen didn’t have a lot of tools. It’s alright for a night or maybe 2.

    the place was very clean. My room very and tidy. the bed very comfy BUT The only commun room is the kitchen which is supposed to be closed by 10/10.30 pm. the first night I was awaken by staff putting away glass bottles close to midnight and the second night it seems the whole house was partying until 4 am !! I had such a bad sleep there.
