From start to inglorious finish, this place was an experience in abuse. We booked it online through Hostelbookers because we wanted something inexpensive in the historical district of Bari and other choices were already booked. Too bad we ignored the warnings! Our taxi driver from the airport had to stop various times and ask several locals before he got us within walking distance. We then spent much too long finding the address on the map only to discover in small print that we were to check in at a completely different address! After walking the complicated maze of streets for another hour and only after asking some very kind locals, we finally found the address only to discover the place was locked! We called the number on the wall and a non-Italian man showed up and said simply "Check in close at 10:00." He then led us on a long walk back through the city, out the gates and down a darkly lit alley to a place called "Hotel Central." When we complained about this, he said, "Check in close at 10:00." The Hotel Central was obviously a family connection and an exercise in poor service. The "breakfast" was entirely uneatable and we had to wait for over an hour for a receipt. Luckily the rest of our stay in Bari and Polignano was fantastic!
