This is the second time I stayed here, this time with a friend. Maria, the owner, is a wonderful hostess, she treats everyone as if they were guests in her home and she will always try to fulfill any request. The hostel is very clean and the rooms are spacious and have a lot of storage space. The bathroom/toilets are... More

We spent the greatest time in Gozo in Santa Martha Guesthouse. Maria is very pleasant fantastic person who always cares about her guests. We had everything we need and we were well satisfied. When Maria saw that we travel with our two small kids (2 years and 7 months) she gave us even privat bathroom. Everything was clean, smelling fresh... More

The hostel was clean and simple offering a tidy room, clean bathrooms and a decent breakfast. It is a short walk to the waterfront where all the bars and restaurants are located. The owner Maria is not always around which is fine but when you need something it can be tricky. There is no information in the hostel on bus... More

The pension is situated in a quiet area. It is close to a bus stop. It is clean, cheap and quiet. You can choose a individual or shared room. The pension´s owner Maria is friendly and she helps with all doubts that you concern. Good choice.

We stayed at Santa Martha Hostel from Dec 3rd to Dec 6th. We met the owner Maria at the second day. She also works as a teacher and is not all the time at the Hostel. As we arrived there was nobody in the hostel but we found a nice letter telling us which room we're in and that she... More

First impression was good, both of hostel and owner who seems overly helpful, pleasant. My travel mate and I had bed bug infestation - we think it came from the unclean blanket, rather than a long term room infestation. Room 4. The woman we met from the adjacent room also had bed bugs. Both rooms were reported - Maria insisted... More

I stayed here for a few nights during a visit to Gozo. I was so glad to find it! The hostel has an excellent location...just a five-minute walk from the seafront, with a little shop along the way for water, fruit, veggies, snacks, toiletries, etc. The bus drops you off practically at its doorstep. Marsalforn in general is a nice... More

Santa Martha had everything going for it. Quiet neighbourhood, 5 minutes to the front, to the swimming, to the buses; an exceptionally helpful, friendly, multi-lingual host, Maria; ample cereal, juice, toast available for breakfast; but best of all was that everything seemed to have been thought through beforehand, Very often you stay somewhere and wonder how the proprietors havent noticed...

The Santa Martha is a lovely place to stay. Maria makes the stay feel like home, very friendly, accommodating and welcoming. The hostel is perfectly located, just a short walk to the sea front, clean, friendly and comfortable...exactly in tune with the island. Definitely plan on staying again as I plan on returning to Gozo!
