First of all this is a hostel, don't be expecting five star as if this is what you want you should look for a hotel!
Malta was my first stop on my travels and the first hostel i have stayed in, baring this in mind I was pleasantly surprise!
The staff were extremely accommodating and did everything they could to help!!
Unfortunately the wheelchair accessible rooms were not completed at my time of arrival/stay but they have a elevator and changed my room to first floor (phone ahead if need wheelchair accessible room as I did not!). The lift was too narrow for my wheelchair (it is rather large some may be ok!), but i am lucky enough to be able to get out onto my knees and crawl and fold my chair up into the lift. The staff would offer and help in anyway they could!
Rooms are spacious and have basic facilities, but everything that is needed!
The animation team were fantastic, even though i think they're employed for the kids, there extremely welcoming and helpful to every guest! All offering to help push mean and some even invited me out to places when they had days off which I really appreciation.
The location is perfect for a fully able body as its close to bus stops to get around anywhere and everywhere but in an area where you can also get peace and quite!
Unfortunately for wheelchairs it was situated on quite a steep slope which I personally found it extremely challenging, but as said about people working at the hostel and even locals would constantly be offering and helping!!
There are quite a few kids that seem to be staying at the hostel as they are learning English or on school trips etc but they have a curfew and out during they day! I guess it depends on the bunch but there were no problems whilst I was there! The pool area could get noisey when they returned from there day but this is just to be expected and was not a problem for me!
Don't be put off by people's reviews as long as your aware it is a hostel and not a hotel then I think you may also be pleasantly surprised!
