    My first time staying in a hostel (22 year old girl on my own) & was so nervous! However, as soon as I walked through Marco Polo’s doors, I felt at home instantly! Amazing service from Jacob, Annour (hope ive spelt it right!!), Ruth, Alberto & Chris!! Some amazing parties, a sick trip to the blue lagoon with many from the hostel (organised by the hostel!) & made many friends (over 12 nationalities) who I know I’ll have for life! Can’t wait to be back very soon, already missing my Malta family :)

    Staff was awesome and super accommodating (especially Jacob). The rooftop bar is a ton of fun and stays open quite late. However, you can’t hear the bar from the rooms so you can still have an early night and not be bothered if you choose. Would highly, highly recommend it!

    I was recommended this hostel by a friend who spoke highly of the staff and the great vibes in the hostel and I have to say, I was not disappointed! I was on a solo trip but met some great folks here from all over the world. The staff is great and super-friendly, thanks to Bryan for the kickass Espresso Martinis, Sam for your hospitality and for making sure everyone's having fun and Bridget for your company. I'll definitely be returning next summer. hope to see you guys then!

    Marco Polo is a great hostel to meet people. It has a great rooftop bar that is busy every evening. The location is awesome The staff are great (Jacob, Gaia + seb) You can walk to the beach and surrounding restaurants in 5 minutes and there are plenty of shops/ bus stops around. The drawback with the hostel is it's cleanliness. The showers were usually dirty. I stayed in a 6 person dorm and the A/C was pretty poor and it is only turned on between 10pm -10am. Saying all that I'd probs stay again

    A decent hostel with a great rooftop space. The only thing that brought it down for me was that cleaning in the rooms or bathrooms would happen sporadically, around 9pm or 10am, with no warning or signs. Also, the website says they're booking the 12 bed dorms at half capacity, but they aren't. My 12 bed dorm was full when I arrived.

    Good Hostel , a bit dirty the toilets but in general in good condition. Nice location in St Julians , next to bus station. Nice terrace to chill and drink . Big downside that my sheets had hair an were a bit dirty and that although we had paid the whole amount the receptionist wanted us when we arrived to pay more money. There was a bit of a frustrating misunderstanding .

    The hostel street was very noisy, even with the window shut we would still listen everything. Our room was very near to the elevator so we would hear thst as well. Staff wasn’t very helpful (we asked for covid testing centers for our pcr) and they said “google it”. We didnt use any other facilities, but overall ir was ok.

    This is possibly one of the worst hostels I have stayed in. I have never left a bad review for a hostel before but I feel it necessary to warn fellow backpackers of the shambles of an operation this place truly is. Why the low rating : 1. Showers have fungi growing on the sides 2. Endless power cuts, in the summer with no ac this is hard 3. Arrogant owner and staff , apart from 1 who is a lovely human being If the place was cleaned and the owner wasn’t so arrogant, this place could be gr8
