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.

    I stayed for a week and really enjoyed my time here! Staying in Sliema is fun and convenient (especially if you have a bus can buy them at the airport). The room was clean and the staff was nice.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the hostel due to it's family like closely knit atmosphere. You feel like you are living in a home away from home. There are no hotels in the area so it doesn't feel as if you're a 'tourist'. But above all else my stay was made special due to the awesome staff that work there. They were all so helpful and the hostel is lucky to have them. Special thanks to Nat who went over and above her duties in all aspects. She can advise you on how to make the most of Malta

    The hostel is a great place to stay in Malta. The rooms have a sink, a fridge and enough space to store your things. Kitchen is fully equipped and spacious. Also the rooftop has a nice view. The people working there are super nice volunteers and made the stay even nicer. It's a 5-10min walk up the hill from the beach so not the easiest when you come back from partying late at night.

    Fantastic hostel in heart of Sliema. Lovely building close to the the harbor and a little beach. Friend and I stayed for a couple of nights in a mixed dorm of 5. Note that it is a quiet place - not a party hostel. There is no bar or food.

    Loved my stay in Granny's Inn. It is a cozy backpackers hostel in a very laid-back and nice neighborhood. The kitchen, bathroom and my bedroom (the 6 bed one) were really clean. Easy-access to public transportation, bars and restaurants. Highly recommend this place, specially if you are few days in Malta.

    Loretta makes the hostel worth a visit alone. She has a bubbly, fun personality that instantly makes you feel welcome upon arrival. The rooftop at night is amazing for moon and stargazing (if that's your thing). The kitchen is like any kitchen you would find in a nice house, everything required to make your meals, although perhaps food storage boxes for guests in the kitchen area might be a possible, useful addition. Slept in the 6 bed mixed dorm. Overall I'd rate it 7.5/10.
