I had the immense pleasure of volunteering at the Olive Tree and work with David for 2 months. The place is super cozy, Bari is awesome and David is one of the best people I've met. He will make sure that you feel comfortable living and working there. I really couldn't recommend it more, hope to go back some day. Missing you David, lots of hugs to the family!

Thank you to David and the team for another great stay. This is such a friendly and welcoming home and it really lends itself to a chilled social atmosphere. Look forward to seeing you guys again when I return on my way back to Greece in the spring.

Really nice place, the staff was very kind explaining us about the history of Bari, where we should eat for good price and great quality, also looking up for train schedules. It offers: clean bathrooms, kitchen, breakfast included, free lockers, also you are close to the central station and the main turistic points (~10min). Can't wait to come back �

Stayed at Olive Tree three nights in total and it was awesome! David and the other staff were really helpful and had good advices where to go and what to see in Bari!
The Hostel was very clean and the rooms where spacious, even the eight bed room!
There was a terrace to chill at the back of the house and several balkonies to the street in the front! Very nice to sit outside.
The wifi was fast and everything worked as it should!
Very recommendable!!! 5stars

While concurring with all the other 5*reviews, I must add that the day tours offered here are utterly wonderful. I have no idea how our guide Gianfranco managed to show us so much (including some really off-the-beaten-track places) in one day and I can't remember laughing so hard either.

Exceptional service and help from the reception. We had some troubles with our ferry and they really went out of their way to help us out. This was on top of good location, very clean facilities, delucious breakfast and good recommendations for the city. Superb.

I was in Bari in 2013 with my sisters and we booked for Olive Tree Hostel. It was the best decision: clean, friendly, best view, in the old town, cheap, awesome couple, who knows everything about what to visit, what to eat, what to enjoy. highly recommended!

I had a fantastic time! Olive Tree Hostel is clean, comfortable & ideally situated in Bari. The staff are helpful & friendly plus encourage travellers by themselves to buddy-up to explore the city & surrounding areas. I highly recommend it.

Olive Tree made our time in Bari easy and comfortable. The hosts helped us out with a route around the old town that stopped at all the best places for food, history and raw, Bari beauty along the way. The dorms gave you space to move as they're quite spaceous and the hostel is equipped with all the things we needed being backpackers - self catering, lockers, wifi etc. We had a really great time. Thanks!

Staff are ridiculously accomodating, rooms are clean, and the bathrooms are the best hostel-bathrooms I've ever had the pleasure to use.

Come here, stay here, and if you can- try to move in here.

Just stayed one night but it was great. Our hosts were really excellent. They helped us navigate Bari Vecchia and suggested places to eat. The atmosphere in Bari Vecchia is very unique and should not be missed. Staying at the Olive Tree really let us feel the true Bari Vecchia. We will be back.

Hospitality is superb!
Rooms and bathroom very clean.
Well served breakfast with fresh fruit. The kitchen is also available to cook your own meal/dinner.
Located in the heart of the old town and within a 5 minute walk to the port. With a little orientation feeling it is not that hard to find.
