I booked a single room and stayed 5 bed dorm as a single use. Room was clean and air condition worked well. I stayed there for 7 nights and room cleaning was only once on the third day. Free washing machines for guests they have. detergents are not free, but always someone left it for next guests. Evening shift staffs... More

I stayed at the NSTS Campus Residence during my Erasmus semester. The equipment of the accomodation is average - it is clean and sufficient for young people. The swimming pool is a big advantage, it is again clean and quite big. The stuff is very nice and helpful. Andrea, the receptionist, helped me with every problem I had during my... More

The hostel is quite cheap, but I still expected something more. First problem is the staff - quite unfirendly apart from one man who was doing an amazing job by telling us what to see in Malta, where to eat and he was always greeting us with a smile. Check in is a huge problem and we had to wait... More

I didn't really like my stay at NSTS: As it was February, nights were still very cold. Apart from very thin linen, there were two blankets (not that thicker), that seemed to be already used. Hair that didn't belonged to me did not really make me feel more comfortable. Although I could stay on my own in a 5 bed-room,... More

Very basic hostel with a lot of flaws. First of all, our room had no balcony and only a small window. A/C is non existent, and only after 4 days of begging we got a fan. Without egzaturation, the temperature in our room was at least 35 degrees Celsius during the night. Although they are very proud of it, the... More

In my opinion this is a very basic hostel in need of refurbishment. I had booked a single private room and the man at the reception tried to put me in a shared one. Finally he gave me a whole apartment only for me but nobody had cleaned it since the last guests had left, so it was quite dirty... More

This hostel seems to be experiencing management issues. It was clean and seemed to be safe, but that is the best I can say for it. There was one bathroom/toilet for nine people. There was no proper shower and the spray that they did have attached to the tub gave out a mere trickle of water. Hot water ran out... More
