I'm a college student, and I stayed here for a couple days with three of my friends. The four of us had our own room, with a small balcony and a private bathroom. It was clean, blankets and towels were provided, and there was a bus station nearby that gave you access to the rest of the island. The only down side was that I never actually saw someone at the reception desk after checking in, but we were able to communicate with the hostel managers via email, and Malta is small enough that you don't particularly need someone to guide you around. Overall, definitely a good value! Also, when I forgot a skirt here the manager found it and mailed it to me (in the Netherlands) at no cost, which is exceptional and amazing.

I stayed at Balco Malta hostel for 9 days with my boyfriend for an holiday, during the summer.
I think that the hostel is good related to the price.
It's clean and it's located in a good position, near the waterfront of Sliema and near to the bus stop, to visit the island.
The room was quite hot because we stayed in Malta in August, but there's a fan.
In my opinion, one thing a little annoying was the smell of the kitchen that was in the hotel.

However the hostel is good!

I stayed at Balco hostel for one week and must say i was extremely happy during my stay. Staff were extremely helpful and facilities were clean and tidy. The location provided easy access to all local amenities. Would highly recommend and look forward to my return visit, hopefully very soon.

We were 2 people and stayed for 5 night in sharing room and 2 nights in single rooms. The place is newly refurbished and opened last March. Doris is in reception every day in the morning and dorien makes clean. We like it and good price. I recommend if you want clean & cheap place.
