We have stayed at hostels across the world and have to say that this one is one if the very best we came across by far. The atmosphere throughout the hostel was fantastic. We could relax in the patio next to the cool breakfast area, unwind in the chill out area with the coolest decking and lighting. The common kitchen was also great with all tools we ever needed. We met so many other great laid back travelers... And best of all was the location of this hostel within 2 minutes walking distance from buses, ferries, ships, restaurants and beaches... Definitely the best.

I just arrived home a half an hour ago and I am writing my review for an accomodation - a first for me:) I wanted to do this right away, since I promised Rita I would write a few words and I wanted to keep my promise, as she kept her promises regarding this charming boutique hostel! Having an excellent location - a walking distance to shopping center, pharmacy, restaurants, bus/taxi,ferry station, and, of course, the sea - yet situated on a very nice and calm street, Two Pillows is really the place to stay when in Sliema. Intimate, very clean and charming, the hostel attracts, it appears, only good quality people, which for me, as a first timer in a hostel, was quite a nice surprise. One of my best accomodations ever - really liked it:) simona, Romania

Had a lovely stay at two pillows. We had the orange room at the top of the property which was a large studio apartment with sufficient space for two people to stay comfortably. The kitchenette facilities in the studio allowed us to eat breakfast and make up snacks which was an added bonus. The room itself was clean, fresh and bright, with lovely big windows which allowed us to watch the fireworks displays in the evenings which were part of local celebrations for a feast. The hostel is only a 5min walk to restaurants on the promenade and a 15m walk to St Julians. Staff are friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. Would highly recommend and will definately stay again in the future.

I really enjoyed staying at two pillows. The property was very clean and well decorated. The kitchen area and patio were especially awesome! The location is walking distance to nice restaurants and the sea. The staff were very helpful when I needed laundry done, new towels etc. Great value.

We hope to welcome you back in Sliema very soon.

The goods:
During my vacation I stayed in one of the private apartment at the top floor.
The apartment was big and well decorated - everything by Ikea.
The location was good, 200 meters from the Ferries bus station - which you will have connection everywhere on the island.
The personnel was very nice and helpful with my questions/requests.

The bads:
Although I stayed in an apartment, this is still a hostel and the services are the same.
During half of the nights stayed here I was not able to have a comfortable sleep during the night due to the outside and inside (stairs) noise. The windows/doors are not isolated. Also, during the last night someone wanted to repair something in the hostel at midnight and he/she made a lot of noise.
In the bathroom all you will be able to find is some liquid soap - no shampoo, no shower gel, no hair dryer, no skivvies.
The towels' age was similar with mine - they will definitely need to change the towels with some new ones.
They charged +3% of the total bill because I wanted to pay with the credit card.
Although on the reservation the breakfast was specified to be 5E/person/night, they charged 13E/couple.
I was not able to use the WiFi during the entire stay.
For the amount of money (~290 Euros for 3 nights + 1 breakfast) paid for the apartment I am not finding it value for money.

Dear Sorin,
Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us, your opinion is very useful for us in order to improve.
We are glad you enjoyed the short distance from the ferries, which in reality is even closer than you stated, the design in each studio, which again is not all Ikea as you again stated and finally the very helpful staff.

However we are always extremely disappointed that any issues are not brought up to our attention during the actual stay as we have so far always managed to deal with any genuine matters that are bound to happen.

Some other clarifications are that the large windows are in fact double glazed with argon to improve insulation and the dividing walls also have rock wool insulation.
We also double checked if any emergency works had to be carried out at night during your stay and also found that this was not the case. Nonetheless we again apologise if you may have heard some noise from outside like fireworks which sometimes do carry on late at nigh during the Summer period in Malta.

With regards to Wifi, again we always receive extremely good comments about the signal and have recently upgraded the bandwidth. This is a matter which would have definitely been dealt with should you have let us know about the difficulties you were having like maybe trying to connect to the signal of a different floor.

Breakfast is advertised at €6.5 not €5 as you stated. We remember asking you whether you wanted to have breakfast after confirming the price of €13 for the both and also pointed out the 3% surcharge on card payments to which you confirmed.

You also decided to complain about the price you were charged. This was clearly advertised that way of course while you booked. The price you paid which is just under €90 a night clearly is excellent value when you consider you had a 54 square meter apartment including a small terrace, your own kitchen, queen size bed, private bathroom, air-conditioning, a large sofa, 42 inch LCD tv with over 90 free tv channels, free wifi...etc all this in a prime location in the heart of Sliema.

We really appreciate your comment and we would like to welcome you back at Two Pillows.

Have a Great Day
