Nice guesthouse and excellent location. Staff is really welcoming and helpful. Even if there's no 24/7 service, the receptionnist gave us his phone number in case we had a problem. No wifi in the rooms but good connection in the reception area. The rooms and building look old and would definitly need some renovations but everything was clean enough. Good place to stay if you're not too regarding, I'd definitly come back and recommend. Thanks again!


The room was nice, we had a 2-bed room with a little balcony. Even if you don't pay for air conditioning you get a fan, so the room isn't too hot. It's really loud in the night because the hostel is on the main street in Paceville - didn't bother us though, we could sleep well. There is no free breakfast but sometimes guests leave their food when they leave and you can have it for free :) The kitchen was pretty messy, oven doesn't work, but in general it's enough to prepare a good meal.


A nice location if you want to live in the party section of Malta. We had a private room and it was ok. Without any AC it was quite hot to stay here in the summer, but hey at least you get a fan. We also had a balcony which was nice thing, even though it wore to hot to stay there before sunset. And when you leave, don't forget to open the door before you hand in the keys (If no staff is there).


They are nice here, but they really should add wifi on other floors, because the lobby is not really a lobby, just a small corridor. There was rust on the floor of my shower, so that was a bit dangerous and the ceiling fan was coming loose so I was a bit worried that it would fly off in the night and hurt me.


The rooms are rudimentary : the mattresses' state is a disaster, the bathroom is separated from the room by a mere plastic panel (thanks privacy) and the fans work poorly. The wifi is only available in the entrance (note even in the depressing common area or in the kitchen). The Hacienda guesthouse is convenient but it pretty much stops there.

No wifi in the room (4th floor) and it's not very convenient to use it downstairs because there were no sockets to plug in the laptop.


Good little hostel in the heart of the entertainment district in St. Julian's. Staff were polite and helpful and the room was very clean upon arrival. It is an old stone building and wifi signal didn't reach my room. Although wifi was available the signal was only strong enough down near reception, making privacy for calls home and planning my day a bit difficult.
