Property Description

Granny's Inn is a homely, family run hostel which is ideal for travellers who wish to have a comfortable and personable stay when visiting Malta. The Hostel is located in a village core in a peaceful street. It’s a five-minute walk from the beach in the wonderful Sliema promenade. It’s also walking distance from one of the top shopping destinations in Malta, while also being surrounded by great hot-spots, bars, and restaurants.

There are great transportation links to numerous sandy beaches and landmarks. The bus stops and ferries to multiple locations on the island, including Valletta are only a short distance away. Luqa airport is just 10.7km away.

It is very important that when booking your accommodation, you let us know your flight number and arrival time in order for us to better instruct you on how to check-in. When arriving after 14:30, we will need to advise you on a separate check-in process. This is because the main reception opening hours are between 08:30 – 14:30.

If you would like, we can organise a chauffeur to pick you up from the airport and take you directly to the hostel for an easier journey. Just let us know in advance so that we can arrange this for you.

Our lovely hostel is conveniently situated within walking distance to:
* Sliema Waterfront: Malta's top tourist area where one can find a nice promenade together with bars, restaurants and shopping malls.
* Paceville: Which is Malta's famous nightlife spot: for clubs and bars. You can also find shopping malls and restaurants here.
* Bus stations/Ferry port: We are within short walking distance to main bus routes. We are also close to the Sliema Ferry which goes to Valletta, as well as routes to Comino and Gozo.
* Beaches: A long stretch of the seafront where you can soak up the sun and refresh yourself in the cooling waters is only just down the road.

Reception is open 08:30 - 14:30 (We can be contacted for assistance the remaining time).

If you are needing a break from the heat or some time to relax, we have a great space on our third floor to do so! The room has a spacious sofa with a TV (Premium channels; Sports, Movies, Entertainment) which also connects onto the calm balcony, as well as access up onto the sunny rooftop.

    The hostel was really nice. Staff was great, location was perfect. The common areas are amazing, a lot of sofas, a rooftop and a balcony for each floor. The showers were really good. Overall cleanliness was good. I got a private room at the last floor, it was really hot inside but there was a fan and ac. Really it was a great hostel and for sure I will be back.

    Paula from reception was amazing, the overall vibe of the hostel is good. I do think that the AC should be controlled by someone who are not the travellers because that way there can’t be disputes over if it is too cold or too hot. It is a small place, but it feels homey, and welcoming. Great location.

    First of all, Julia is SO lovely and accommodating, I absolutely loved meeting her. This hostel is pretty quiet, not too much of a social vibe. The location is nice, as it’s a quick walk to a very convenient bus stop and a lively area. The bathrooms are a bit lacking, as there was only one on my floor, and for half of my stay, the other two bathrooms on the floor above were out of order. However, the room had AC which was much appreciated. I also had a late check-in but was given easy instructions on how to

    The place is cool but the bathrooms was dirty mostly of the time. They are people living there and a little annoying since they get all the comum space to them and feel they own the place. It was a weird vibe. But in the other hand I met great people from all over the world and the people working in the hostel was super nice!

    Simple ‘no frills’ hostel, more facilities, organised events, upgraded bathrooms and a breakfast option would be good

    Cons: Never met the staff/owners due to their limited hours. The shower on my floor was not working the entire weekend. Pros: AC worked and wifi was fast.

    The staff were very helpful over email as staffed hours are limited. I couldn’t get past the bedding, and linen. The bottom sheet was so worn out, it was tearing and had holes in it, it was balling / or mattress which you feel all night and the mattresses were very dirty. The top sheet seemed to be just a bit of cut up material, rather than a sheet. There was also no social aspect at this hostel, very isolating.
