Please be aware all reviews dated before 27th November 2009 refer to Metropole HOTEL which closed about then. Metropole BUDGET HOSTEL is a different establishment at a completely different address.

General Conditions are poor and the hostel is careless. The bedroom chosen is a lottery, i mean, you can get a room which their conditions are ok or horrible. My room were positioned back to the bulding and the courtyard were full of air condition out pipes (HOT AIR), one of them was from a pizza restaurant, so the temperature... More

The hotel does have a great location, but the hotel wasn't very nice, the food was terrible, the walls were damp and the place had a weird smell, me and my cousin were put... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights by myself. The location of the hotel is great, extremely close to the beach and bus stops. The staff was neither friendly nor unfriendly. The hallway had a musty odor and was in need of a renovation. My room, though also musty, was clean and had a working AC. The TV was... More

Stayed in this hotel for 4 nights during a cheap break to Malta. Hotel is in a fantastic location near the busy tourist area of St Julians and just a short (15 min) bus journey from the capital Valletta, at a cost of just 47 cents. Hotel is very basic, but has beds and air conditioning, what else do you... More

i was booked into this hotel on a business trip and it was truly appalling. Rooms were dirty, bare wiring everywhere, incredibly noisy with large trips of teenagers whose accompanying adults had no control over them. Breakfast was an insult: powdered juice, queue to toast your own plastic bread ---. Dinner was inedible - had to go out to eat... More
