I write as a life member of An Oige - The Irish Youth Hostel Association -with rather diverse experience as a hosteller over a period of 41 years. My experience of the hostel in Sleima stands out as one of the very best I have ever had. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and ever ready to be of help.The beds... More

When we got there, they give us the key and our room was already taken by someone else. We spoke with manager and our talk lasted 4 hours. He was a little bit rude. The hostel is very noisy and messy. In one day another person got the keys from our room from the reception and we found that person... More

I'm used to this kind of accommodation (hostel) but I've never seen a place like NSTS Residence & Hostel Sliema. It's horrible, DON'T GO there, even if the price is cheap. - Extremely poor service: not very nice. If you have a problem, you can tell them every morning, it will never be fixed. - No receptionist after 3pm Sat-Sun... More

We were three friends and we spent 5 days in this hostel. Despite some negative feedbacks we had a beautiful experience there. The bedrooms and the toilets were ok, the breakfast was rich. You have also to consider that the price is very low so in my opinion it's very economic to stay in this hostel!

The price was very good and the breakfast OK. However, although they advertise free WIFI this is only available in the lobby and on the 1st and 6th floor. Furthermore, there was no cleaning during the whole week I stayed there (in contrary to twice a week as they state) and the other inhabitants are very noisy. The caretaker for... More

I don't recommend it at all. I was in the room with 5 another people and the room was connected with 2 another room, so overall there were about 22 people. The room was old and not encouraging :/ For all these people there were 4 separated WC - 2 of them didn't work and common bathroom with 4 showers... More

I stayed 6 weeks at the NSTS Hibernia Residence and Hostel. Good things: - The rooms were cleaned twice a week. Bad things: - The breakfast was served 8am untill 9am, but by 8.30am there was rarely any food left. The staff didn't check the buffet so clients had to ask them to refill everything. - Some staff were unhelpful... More
