What to say.. I loved my experience.. it was amazing!
David is an incredible person, he is so nice, patient and kind! I am grateful to worked there, with amazing volunteers!
South Italy is very beautiful, the cities around are really nice!
Thank you for everything David, it was a pleasure!
I was expecting a nice experience, but it was PERFECT. Best staff and best place in town. David, the owner, treats us like family. I'm glad to had the chance to live in Bari and went to the cities around. Alberobello, Matera and Polignano a Mare are like fairy tales. I'll miss every single day in the hostel. The activities are pretty easy and you will feel home there FOR SURE. You don't need second thoughts: apply NOW.
This was one of the best experiences that I ever had.
Bari is a lovely city. There are many things to do and to see, the old town is an incredible place and getting lost and discover new things every time made it my favorite spot in the whole city.

David is the best host, he will help you with everything that you may need.
I had a wonderful time here and I will definitly miss this place and the lovely staff.
