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

I stayed at the hostel for two weeks and it was excellent value for money. The place is constantly kept clean. The single room could actually sleep 3 and had a shared bathroom which was never a problem. There is a self service kitchen where meals can be prepared. A simple continental breakfast is provided. It is ideal for those... More

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
