We had a really nice time here, the rooms were clean, beds are comfortable and the breakfast filling. Martha herself is a very nice lady, makes sure you have all you need to feel comfortable. For the price the best place you can find in Gozo. Thank you for a lovely stay.

We stayed here for a week during our trip to Gozo and island Malta. The hostel is situated a few minutes' walk from the centre of Marsalforn. Maria was very helpful with providing information about everything. The room itself was spacious and clean. The breakfast provided was basic but adequate. Would definitely recomend!

We had a great time in this hostel. Its very, very clean and peaceful. When we arrived Maria wasnt here, so she left some notes for us, where our room is etc. This makes it like a home and not like a big hotel. The room is quite big + fan. (Hot) Shower was good. There were also a lot... More

We had a good time. Gozo was beautiful and sea was amazing. Hostel was nice and Maria was very kind and helpful. Usually I don´t even know who runs a hostel but here we talked with the owner every day. Maria asked every morning did we sleep well. Hostelroom was quite hot but everything else was good. Five stars -hostel!!

This place is ok to stay but don't expect an exciting time. The place is tough to find and no warm welcome, the welcome is a note that our keys are on the bed etc and everywhere you look is a note eg, lamp has a button to turn on - (we'd worked that one out). When we finally met... More

Maria, the owner of this hostel speaks very good French (that could help French people with difficulties in English). The place is quiet and friendly. It is not a party lover backpacker place... It is like a peaceful and quiet place. Maria is making all efforts to help and to run the place smoothly.

Maria and Santa Martha Hostel are a Gozitan gem. Maria runs a hostel that provides a home away from home experience. So clean and comfortable and a lovely breakfast. Ideally situated and very good bus connections. There is lots of drying space on the roof and the free wifi is very reliable and a strong signal. I am planning my... More

Maria is super friendly and helpful. She will show you maps, tell you about attractions, places to go, etc. She is a very kind and warm person. The hostel is very clean, rooms get cleaned every day, as well as the kitchen and other common areas, even though I was the only one staying there! Rates are very good, especially... More

I stayed in Santa Martha hostel with a friend for 4 days, and I wish I could stay more. Maria is one of the nicest people I've met, she helped with every request we had, and she kept the place so clean, that I actually cooked (I never do in hostels :)). The rooms are big, and there's more bathrooms,... More
