Staff. Temporary employee, Kashi, refused to allow me to use the hostel's own computer because she said I would interfere with the hostels own software! Atmosphere. All bathrooms were locked by maintenance personnel so that they could not be used except by separate keys available by tenants of that floor. Cleanliness. Dirty bathmats not changed. Value for money. Owner, James, charged each of the four of us in one delivery vehicle 19 euos, an overlchare of 14 euros each.

The hostel was really nice, with great, helpful staff and a nice common kitchen. The location was also great - close enough to the main street of Sliema, far enough not to be annoyed by the traffic. It would be nice if the reception was open 24/7, which would make a backpackers life easier. Some of the facilities were a little worn-out and it was hard to take a shower without spilling water all over the bathroom. Aside from that - really nice :)

Really cool place. The common kitchen allows you to meet several people and practice with english (or any other language). I didn't like so much the bathroom in our room because it was really tight, but this is the only negative thing i can find. James (the owner) and all the staff were really kind and always ready to help us. HIghly reccomended!

Great hostel, extremely clean and dedicated Stadt. The owner James can help you with any problems and tries to make anyone's stay as comfortable as possible.

A/C would be nice, but I got the impression that a lot of places do not have that in Malta. For the wireless, I do like the idea of having the access more restricted to the ground floor to encourage people to come out and socialize. I would still recommend that you might want to invest in better hardware for the router though. It was frustrating that many devices disconnect frequently and it makes if harder to do some planning for site seeing. It might just need a firmware or settings change.

A nice hostel with kitchen which is very convenient. No AC in the female dorm so it is a little hot during the daytime, but at night it is ok. The street is little bit noisy and the wifi is not so good.

Nothing much to write home about. Functional hostel. simple - no frills - good kitchen area - ok for a few nights. Air-con needed in the rooms!

A small but delicious hostel, perfectly located in Sliema, close to everything. Impossible not to make friends in the well equipped kitchen, or in the comfortable living room. Staff and owner superfriendly. Great bunkbeds.

Great if you just want a bed, but that's all you'll really get out of staying here. Compared to the other hostels I've been to, staff were not as knowledgeable about the city and not as friendly as you'd expect hostel staff to be. Facilities and location were fantastic, but no 'hostel-like' atmosphere. It felt more like a hotel, and that's a negative when you're a solo traveller looking to explore a new city and meet new people.

Overall good stay. However while the place is in general clean, it is extremely humid in the rooms with mould stains on the ceiling- not so good, if you're allergic. Would recommend for a night or two, but not long term.

It was a brillant Hostel where to stay... The Staff was very nice, helpfull and friendly. We reserved the double room for 2 days... The Location is great. It's only 50m from the main road where all the buses are running toward the Old city of Valetta or on the otherside towards the clubs and pubs... Naturally, closed to the seaside as well.. The Clubs are also within walking distance away. We can run, cycle or simply walk on a large pavement which goes along the coast. It's very nice.

It was my second stay at Corner Hostel Malta. Another time, everything was just perfect. The staff was really friendly and Corner Hostel is really clean for a hostel as well. Also the location of the hostel is good. It isn’t directly at the main road, so it is quite quiet during the night there. I can't wait for my third time. James, you do a brilliant job there - keep it up! See you.

A great hostel! The staff were all so friendly and very helpful. Very conveniently located near a great swimming spot, shops and public transport. The only thing we found that wasn't fantastic was the bathroom, which was a bit damp and dark, but other than that, no complaints what so ever! Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone travelling to Malta!

We stayed here for two nights in a twin room last July and both me and my friend liked very much the hostel. The room was clean, spacious and secure, the staff is very friendly, and the location may be the optimum place to stay in Malta. It`s very close to the sea and bus stops, no need to go far away for swimming and you can easily go anywhere in Malta from there... I liked Malta and Corner Hostel very much and looking forward for the next time...
