    The overall experience at the hostel is very positive. The beds are comfortable but no air conditioning or fans so quite warm at night. A continental breakfast is provided with Tea, coffee, cereal and Rolls/bread.

    The Olive Tree is a good hostel. A central (somewhat noisy) location. Clean rooms and sanitary. Great breakfast included. I missed a kind of sitting room, but there is a great terrace. The staff was very helpful and friendly. It was a nice stay.

    Quite pleasant staff - not local tough. Good basic breakfast. Fair location. They recycle, which also good nowadays. Unfortunately they close the kitchen (that also provides access to a toilet & balcony, an works as common area indoors) overnight, so you can't use the kitchen from 00:00 until 08:00. It would be useful to have a small shelf near each bed to put the phone and small belongings overnight. The mattress felt old.

    Olive Tree is in an excellent location and the staff were nice and very friendly. The free breakfast isn't huge but it's an appreciated addition. It was a little hard to meet people because the kitchen is small and the common area is outside and cold. The bedrooms were nice, big and very clean. There were lockers with locks provided but no lock on the room doors so anyone could go in and out. The staff also seemed to be big contributors to the mess in the kitchen. Staff had great recommendations

    I must say I was expecting more. The hostel is clean and it has a good location, close to supermarkets, the train station and the historic centre. However, it has only three toilets for all the guests and apparently they don't have a dryer, so the sheets are hanging all over the place to dry. Would recommend it because it's a good value for what you pay.
