Apart from Valletta, the capital city of Malta, there are other popular cities or places in Malta – St. Julians, Sliema, or even another island named Gozo. If you appear in Malta, you would probably visit their Aquarium in the St.Paul‘s Bay, another popular destination on this island.

In that case, I think Hostel Malti would be perfect for me.Finally, thank you again for sharing such an informative article with us.

  3. Hi! Very good article about hostels in Malta. This post came at the right moment because I am planning to visit Malta this year, in fall to be more accurate, but I have a family – wife and two children, and I want to ask you, if you know, which hostel would you recommend me? And as well – what are prices in Malta? I mean how much money you need to spend it there?

  4. Wow, Malta is amazing and thanks for sharing with us this amazing article about best hotels from there.

    I was in Malta a few years ago and I want to say that I liked it a lot. The weather is perfect for the beach and the water is blue and very warm (I was in June). This year I would like to go again and look for a hotel where to stay for 7 days with my family. I think hostel Malti is all i want. I saw a lot of positive reviews and i really want to try it. I heard that the food is amazing too in this places.

    Thanks again . Good luck!

  5. Thank you for a great post.  You reminded me of just how amazing and affordable it is staying in hostels as you go about your travels. The people you meet and the atmosphere make it a much more memorable experience than a hotel.

    The fusion of great history, cultures and climate definitely puts Malta on my bucket list of places to see.  And now I know where I’ll be staying.

    Thank you for sharing.

  6. I have been in Europe for years but this is one country that I have not been in (most I have visited at least once). Since it is the last on my list, it is time to plan a trip there. You have listed some very nice options and I do think these are the best hostels that I have seen in my search for places to stay.

    The first option you reviewed, the Marco Polo Hostel, is the most attractive to me. I like that it has an outdoor area with great sea views and it looks quite comfy. If that is not available for my trip, I likely will go with the Hostel Malti. That one too has a lot of features that I like. I have bookmarked the page in case these two do not have openings. Thanks so much!

    1. Hello Dave!

      Thank you for your kind comment and for visiting our website!

      The hostels you are mentioning are really great and it would be probably my choice too if I go to Malta one day, which is my plan as well. It is great the hostels have so high quality nowadays so travelers can have great and comfy accomodation for a reasonable price.

      Wish you all the best on your trips and in your life too!

      Bye Renata
