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

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.
