“Escape to Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

My friends and I were in Albania for the month and we needed a few days escape and chose Italy. We took a ferry to Bari and walked right to the hostel. The owners are amazing, extremely hospitable and want to make your experience the best ever. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Breakfast is great (toast, cereal, yogurt, coffee) and they have wireless internet. If you want a true Italian escape stay at Olive Tree!

Spotlessly clean place and great location. The owners were very helpful in providing all info we needed. We ended up staying an extra night in Bari. We found this place very Italian and off the beaten track. Great food and vibe. We'll definitely be going back.

I stopped in Bari to grab a ferry over to Dubrovnik and absolutely fell in love with the place! So much so, I stayed longer. The hostel is run by an Aussie, Dave and his gorgeous Italian wife, Valentina meaning that they had a great understanding of what I was after and how to make me feel at home. I am quite sad to have left actually, and will definitely make it back should I come back to Italy. A real gem of a find!

This is a lovely hostel, run by the most wonderful and welcoming couple.
In my view, Bari is a bit of a hidden gem in general, and it's definitely worth a visit. You can find delicious, fresh fish, at a really low price and the old centre is great to have a stroll around.
The hostel is ideally situated, the perfect place to stay should you be visiting Bari!

Made it to Bari only to be pleasantly surprised by two lovely hosts ready waiting to help. As I do not speak a lot of Italian I was very relieved to talk with David. Who could articulate what I wanted to learn. I stayed 4 nights. The service was amazing. Sometimes you just get lucky. I would highly recommend The Olive Tree to any traveler or even local. Thanks David and Valentina for the fantastic hospitality. I will definitely be back again.

We stayed at the Olive Tree for a weekend recently, and cannot recommend it highly enough. Brilliantly located for exploring Bari and beyond. The hostel is clean, comfortable and welcoming. We had the double room, the bed was ridiculously comfortable and the room is light and airy. David and Valentina are so friendly and full of useful information on what to see and where to eat and drink locally. Wishing we had a few days longer! Will be back for sure.
