There was never anyone at reception so we were unable to check in for two days after we arrived. Thankfully (or not) the door was always unlocked so we were able to come in and out as we pleased and settle into our rooms as the keys were left on the reception desk. Kitchen was dirty, fridges in rooms barely worked and we had to throw a lot of food out that had spoilt overnight. Quite a walk from the beach but close to supermarket Staff were very rude and unfriendly.


A great place to stay, centrally located in Msida close to shopping areas in Malta. Really helpful staff and lovely guests. I had a good time.

Worst hostel ever. Rooms so hot even with fans we had to sleep with balcony door open and were eaten by insects. Girl living full time in our dorm room, we felt like we were in her space. Charged for wifi that only worked in reception. Never anyone on reception, had to call host to meet us and wait 30 minutes for her to arrive. No way to meet other travelers or get tips on Malta. Kitchen smelled like mould. Front door open all the time, anyone could just wander in. Do not stay!!!!!!
