10/10 Exceptional

This hostel is exactly the type of hostel that I love to stay in. Very accommodating and friendly staff who have a great wealth of knowledge on Malta. A very clean hostel, the cleaning staff seem to do an amazing job every day. The common areas are ideal for relaxing in after a long day/night in the heat too, very peaceful. It's a great haven on a busy island.

The best budget stay around
It was really good! The staff was nice and the rooms were very clean. One thing which was amazing was that they offered USB charging in the wall. Being Scandinavian, I was not prepared for the British plugs, so this was really good. Also, you could borrow an adapter for a 5€ deposit. The location was good. 1hr walk away from Valletta, bus stop 200 metres with two departures per hour, or 5 mins away with connections to the entire island. The beds were so comfy, and there was AC in the room. I highly recommend this.

Nice Quiet Hostel
I was here for 4 nights, it was a good location to travel around from, in a quiet neighbourhood in a traditional Maltese house. The dorm beds were fine, nothing special, you had your own cupboard to store your things, there was a sink in the room and shared bathrooms for the floor. I arrived late and the staff had left me instructions on how to check-on when they weren't there, everything went smoothly. It wasn't a party hostel but a good clean cheap place to stay. Good Wifi.

The hostel is clean quite but the room is freezing cold and the blanket is too thin also will be better if they provide towel.
