Just off the waterfront where Sliema joins St Julian’s at Belluta Bay. It's a few minutes walk to all the bars and restaurants of St Julian’s. A few minutes too from the Sliema sea front and rocks to swim off.
Basic but bright – mostly pine and shades of blue. Very decent for the price. Rooms have between two and eight beds, bathroom/shower (some a bit run down), and a kitchenette. Dorm rooms are divided by gender so if you want to be together as a couple you need a smaller room or to join up with friends.
On the ground floor there is a lounge and TV and breakfast room that I find more welcoming than the pulbic rooms of many more expensive places. There is a also a row of computers available for use at a small charge, a coin-operated laundry and a snack vending machine.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast only, which is included in the price – a cold buffet that is considerably more than a basic continental.
Reception is open each morning, the rest of the time staff are on the end of a phone. Card keys are provided for getting in and out when reception is closed.
Who stays there
Students and budget travellers.
Discounts of up to 35 per cent are sometimes available on rooms (not on dorm beds) if you contact the hostel (or walk in) and ask.
