Lovely hostel in a central position in Sliema, probably the best hostel we have ever been too. Great value for money, good cooking facilities in a central kitchen (with free coffee and tea), pleasant lounge facility with free WiFi. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with very comfortable beds. The staff were friendly, welcoming and accommodating, full of great advises and local knowledge. We will definitely be recommending this hostel to our friends.

First impressions were very welcoming employees at reception can not bad mouth about anyone, very helpful and always willing to exceed my requests/queries.
The cleanliness of the hostel has been top notch! And commuting to places is very convenient as bus stops very close by.
One minor drawback was there was no handwash in the bathrooms..
All and all very pleased albeit I went at an all time quiet period :)

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It was very clean and well organized, with wonderful, friendly staff and an amazing location. The rooms are large, safe, clean and have comfortable beds. You are just up the street from the ocean and are just a short walk from shops, nightlife in St. Julian's and bus stops to take you anywhere on the island. Super affordable prices on rooms for the service and cleanliness you receive.
Also, since we arrived late at night, the hostel organized a driver to pick us up at the airport and had our sheets and keys waiting for us at the door. It was very convenient and helpful.
Overall, I would recommend this hostel to anyone!

very nice hostel in sliema with a great atmosphere!! I stayed there for three days and found a nice place to stay. It has a large common area including a nice kitchen where you can cook and always meet people from all over the world to chat, exchange informations or make some travel plans! the staff was very courteous, even arranged for me the transfer to the airport early in the morning at 5am!! So thanks to James and staff for their hospitality, i have no doubt recommending this hostel to anyone!!

Lovely hostel in a central position in sliema. Great value for money, nice to have free tea and coffee and good cooking facilities in a central kitchen and free WiFi and pleasant lounge facility. Perfect venue for meeting and getting to know many other nationalities. Will definitely be recommending the hostel to people and I will stay again when I next visit Malta. Thank you corner hostel for coming up trumps for me with good quality accomodation in Malta.

I cannot speak highly enough of the Corner Hostel.

The staff were friendly and accommodating, not only arranging a pick-up from the airport but were also full of advice and local knowledge on how to get around the island.

The location is excellent too, 50m from the main coast road and the nearest bus stops with access to the whole of Malta. There is a general store across the road and Sliema, St Julien's and Paceville are all just a short walk away.

There is free internet, coffee and tea, plus a large kitchen in the hostel itself. Meeting fellow stayers was easy and we made many new friends during our week in Malta.

The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the bed was one of the most comfortable in which I have ever slept. It was a very relaxing stay and, should I return to Malta, I will definitely stay here again.

After having stayed in 4 of the top rated hostels in Malta I can officially say that the Corner hostel is the BEST hostel on the island. So in order to help others save time, stress and the hassle of moving around I figured I would post this review!

The location: ideal, walk straight down the hill and you can go swimming, catch a bus to go site seeing or take a beautiful walk along the water to reach St Julians for a drink.

The bedroom & bathroom: spacious, private and most importantly very clean! Also includes reading lamp, small desk and an individual proper sized locker right next to your bed (something you dont get anywhere else!)

The kitchen: is huge! There is heaps of space to store your ingredients (this is the only place where I could actually cook my meal and not feel disgusted by the state of the kitchen as it is always clean and there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out)

The common room: very spacious, and includes two computers for public use.

The people: fantastic! The owner, James, genuinely takes passion and care in looking after his guests and ensuring that their individual needs are met. The girls at reception are super friendly, helpful and actually look happy to be there! Even the lady who helps out in cleaning the hostel is lovely and does an exceptional job.

Overall, if you want a place which ticks ALL the boxes and where you can feel as comfortable as you would at home and also meet wonderful people to go out with - look no further than the Corner hostel!
