Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pretty incredible experience. If you’re fortunate enough to have Maria walk you through (grand daughter of the man who discovered the cave), you are in for a treat. Don’t forget to donate to the cause that she has given a lot of her life to (be sure to ask about it).

As others have said, an unusual experience! It's small but definitely worth visiting, and you just make a donation in exchange for the owner letting you through her home and into the cave. Don't worry if she takes a couple of minutes to appear after you ring the bell.

We were greeted by an elderly lady who told us the story of the man looking for water and she then gave us the key to go look in our own time.
I found it quite interesting as is Xerri's Grotto a few streets up.
What I don't get is the reviewers expecting the bat cave in someones basement then comment on the very place that shows dozens of photos of said cave so 🤦

This place was amazing. The lady that owns the house was so passionate and welcoming. She welcomed us into her house and showed us the caves. Just hearing her talk about the history of the caves and how proud she was and selfless. It’s worth just going to see this lady and listen to her share her passion.

She doesn’t expect any money but all the donations you give she gives 100% to a charity for single mothers on the island.

Would 100% recommend. (There is also a beautiful golden Labrador called Ninu).

What an extraordinary place - a must see if you are in the area. The owner of the house is very friendly and explains the story of the cave - and the cave itself is really fantastic. It's awesome to have such a wonder of nature under one's house :))

We stumbled upon Ninu's cave whilst having a wander around Gozo for the day on holiday. We're so glad that we did. Ninu's cave is at the back of a house on a residential street, the location to me, made it even more quirkier. We were greeted by a sweet little old lady who led us through her home out to the back and down the stairs into the cave. It is a great sight to see, lots of stalagmites and stalactites which have been formed over thousands of years. I've noticed some negative reviews on here but given that it feels like you're basically standing within a piece of history potentially dating back to prehistoric times which has taken such a long time to form and looks so different to anything I'd seen before, well I thing that's pretty damn cool! Also to see the cave it's a suggested donation, we paid her €5 but to say she is inviting you into her home to share her amazing piece of history with the world I don't know how people dare say anything negative about it. We had a great time and if you are ever in Gozo I would certainly recommend it.

You ring the bell and a delightful gentleman showed us to the cave which his grandfather found when digging for water in 1888. Short but worth finding this little treasure

A small place with a very interesting story and background escorted by a friendly man. It is really cheap as donation is only voluntary 😁
