Very good hostel. Only one drawback: I was sleeping in the bedroom 8 and there was a 'mechanic' noise, quite loud, and regular during the nights but I don't know where it was coming from, so it was difficult to sleep.

Thank you for the nice comments. The mechanic noise was in fact the water pump that ensures great water pressure in all rooms and floors! We have improved the system and covered it with better insulation to make it practically silent! Thank you for the advice and we hope to have you with us again one day.


We really enjoyed our stay at Corner Hostel. It is clean, well-located and the staff is really nice. There's only one problem: when there are many people showering at the same time the hostel runs out of hot water. It was really annoying because we had to take cold showers for two days. Besides that, we had a really pleasant time!

Thank you for the very good rating! We are honoured :)


Nice area, quite street close to the main bays. Hostel is okay, but nothing special. Some light bulb may be not working, or a locker key is missing for a room locker, the staff has a "so what" mentality and do not care too much. Dont expect to get too much help from them, it seems like most of the staff do not enjoy there work. But overall to say it a bad run hostel will be a little bit too much.

Dear Sir / Madam, thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that we did not meet your expectations and we assure you that Corner Hostel is not about the "so what" mentality. We promise to continue improving and offering a great place to stay to many travellers!


Excellent location in Sliema, near the promenade, bus stop and bars/restaurants. Kitchen fully equipped was great if you miss your local food. There is no AC, so It might get quite hot @ night. Needs to improve on cleanliness side. Otherwise, very good value for money.


close to the sea, easy to find.30 min on autobus to Valetta


Staff were fantastic and friendly, good location, but wifi only worked in the common areas, rooms were so stuffy, toilet didn't work at times. ladders didn't feel safe up on the top bunk. some music down at reception would spice it up abit =)


The hostel has a lot of potential, but the only staff member who can help you is the hostel owner. The girls at the reception are just not helpful and can't talk to the cleaning woman which doesn't speak English (only Maltese). Had no key for my locker the whole stay ( talked more than once to the staff about that, but only the hostel owner is able to handle problems there) Not too much of a hostel atmosphere, because only 4 bed door rooms and somehow it is more like a hotel. Bad for singles

Locks locks locks... there is lock for every door, I had room nro 9 where toilet is outside the room. Toilet lock was almost broken and it took 2-5minutes every time to get it open. Once in a night time it went broken so all customers in room 9 had to pee on cleaning bucket outside. Rooms are towards small road and it its extremely noisy when all sound are echoing between buildings.
