    With a hip cafe on the ground floor and a large, self-catering kitchen upstairs, this waterfront hostel is a gem. Some dorm rooms are tiny indeed and the beds very narrow, but at 15£ that’s what you get. My roommates, other guests and staff were all kind and conscientious. The place was surprisingly quiet (but bring ear plugs just in case!).

    Great hostel in St Julian’s, Malta. Rooms are very private with my 6 bed dorm having an en-suite, pool area was great and huge kitchen. Check in/out was very easy, they were happy to print my flight boarding pass for me which was great. Only thing to improve would be curtains on the beds for some privacy and a shelf in each of the bunks would be great, in addition to the locked drawers under the bunks already there. Thanks guys!

    Nice and clean, friendly and helpful staff and the location is stunning. Inside it's cosy, well structured and really relaxing in there. I found myself happily making a couple of beats whilst passing the time in the front lounge with a nice coffee. The only thing I would give constructional criticism on is perhaps a better storage unit ? You can't have any storage in there after 5 and the units where too small for my items, luckily they sell padlocks behind the desk though 🙂.

    A bit of a walk to the train station,but very close to the bars and where you want to be. Laundry facilities on site and nice staff. Rooms were clean and the shower and bathroom were separate which was also a nice feature. The room has a shower and toilet en suite so no long slog or queue for it.

    Not bad value for money, gets a bit pricey come the weekend, they could have a selection of beds that cater to guests that are over 6ft and Duvet's to match, apart from that, nice place.

    Really wasn’t a fan of this hostel. The location on the water was great - felt very central. But that’s the only good thing I can really say about it. There was absolutely no atmosphere. I guess I’ve been lucky but at the last few hostels I’ve stayed at, I’ve had great experiences. Here, my bed was hard & my back hurt from sleeping in it. The WiFi didn’t work in my room so I had to stay in the lobby to use it - which wasn’t rly a lobby for guests? Facilities were outdated - shower was awful.

    The customer service is horrible, the rooms are clean but the showers and toilets could be a lot better. I am also unsure of where some staff think it's ok to mess customers around I reported it to a manager as much as she said sorry I dont see that anythink changed. Some of the staff were helpful but not all. I would not be coming back to this yha at all.

    This place is not a youth hostel in the sense that a traveller would be used to in the rest of Europe. It’s very much a halfway house/ used by older women and gentlemen who are between homes etc. there’s no atmosphere. The Internet is also garbage, they don’t have a computer to use and i wasn’t able to use the phone which is pretty critical for checking into flights etc. the receptionist was perplexed when I asked if there would be anything happening in the bar that evening.
