For the last 4 weeks I stayed in hostel malti. I was in Malta for an English course and I think the combination with the hostel is a good combination to learn English. In the hostel is an open atmosphere. At first Chris and Aaron are nice people, interested and they created a place where everybody is willing to hang with the others. The looks in and outside the hostel are nice. Every room has it's own theme with nice paintings on the wall.
Sometimes Chris and Aaron organized activities. We went to Camino once and did there some cliffdiving. They know the nice places to go to, so on the trip to Camino they could tell us where we had to go to for the best views and swims.
The same is with the activities I wanted to do by myself. They know the nice places and told me what I needed to see, especially the less touristic areas like Hassan's cave.
I decided to take my bicycle with me on the plane to Malta. This costed me €100, after the 4 weeks I'm glad I did it. Malta is "small", but has some steep hills. With a normal mountainbike and some trained legs these are easy to cycle.
I'm surprised that the people on the internet and the Maltese themselves only see the danger of cycling in Malta. I think much more people have to cycle on Malta then you can see the beauty of the whole island. When you cycle 10km from the hostel your in a complete different quiet world, that's what I like about Malta.
I would advice everyone who loves to cycle to take a bicycle with them or hire it. A bicycle rental is 2km from the hostel in San Gwann (The Cyclist). Another thing that I would recommend to do is a walk or cycletour along the sea from Marsascale to Marsaxlokk. There are some nice cliffs and St. Peter's pool, not very touristic but a must to visit.
