“perfect holiday in perfect hostel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

I was not sure what to expect because I booked at a very good price, but I was not disappointed. It was the perfect holiday in the perfect hostel. I loved to stay at Two Pillows. I shared room but otherwise quality much more like hotel then hostel. It is a very good location to see the island of Malta, and staff helpful like concierge to tell you where to go and how to go there. Breakfast very good and cheap. Thank you Two Pillows you are great.

Room Tip: I was in a room called Red room. It is for six people, very big, two toilets, balcony, always clean.

Well to begin i did a round world trip Malta was halfway point for me. As i am from san francisco. i was in Malta for 25 days. But only booked two pillows for the first. 5 nights. Figured id move around. But after seeing how clean and nice the hostel was and in such a great location. Not dead center of paceville and loud as hell but in a nice beautiful quiet area. Just steps away from night life and all the public transport... So really i realized why leave this place i can get everywhere. The ferries and busses all run just outside. Rita (the owner) and her sons are amazing and bend over backwards to make sure you enjoy your stay. Had a real home feeling. The treat you as family almost. I stayed the whole 25 days there and had such an amazing time. Met so many cool people who i still keep in touch with and have visited some. I for sure, for sure will return to two pillows...

Rita, the owner and receptionist, was so friendly and accommodating. We arrived late at night and she was out so we gave her a call and she directed us to where we could find towels and outlet adapters, and because of the inconvenience of her not being there, gave it to us free of charge. The kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped and the rooms were very clean and airy. One thing I would recommend is to keep the windows closed because the mosquitos are vicious and woke up with a number of bites.

Two Pillows Hostel have great hosts ! We we're travelling in a group of 8 people, and we have a really good time there. The hosts are very kind and sweet and they will help you with any problem or question you have regarding the city, sightseing, airport transfers and many many more. I would totally recommend staying at the Two Pillows Hostel for a cozy and warm place that it is. If we return to Malta, we will choose Two Pillows Hostel once more.

Good localisation - shops, buses and ferries in the area.

Clean, equipped kitchen, although shared bedrooms are smaller than they look on the pictures and you have to go through one to get to another one which may be quite disturbing for poor guys in beds.

Anyway still good for the money.

We thank you for your nice feedback, and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Sliema.

We take all your comments into account and we will do our best to improve our service. Even though the dorms with shared bathrooms are very clearly advertised, we have since had another bathroom for the shared dorms installed and are planning to add a couple more to try and make everyone have an even more comfortable and pleasant stay.

Such nice hosts! We arrived after 9pm and were greeted by a sweet Welcoming notice on the easel just inside the door. The place seems to have been recently remodeled with a modern feel, yet still retaining many of the original features. Very clever! We stayed in the top penthouse for the first night - the Blue Room. Quite magical to open the door and climb the last set of stairs to the newly created top floor. The layout was so clever! Good touches were the blackout type curtains on the large expanse of glass on both sides of the room - really useful to keep those rays at bay until you are ready! Great comfy bed and amazingly luxy pillows. Two Pillows! We were comfortable as "two"; there was room (single bed) for three and at a pinch, another person could sleep on the sofa, though as it was open plan, the "cool" factor for a couple would be compromised! The balcony's on both sides afforded great views. Quite a lovely view in the night and then again the next morning!
We pre-booked for two nights, but not together and the second night was in the Orange Room - for a different experience! This was a cleverly designed smaller space with a Sony music system - tho' I couldn't seem to work out how to get the USB to function and play our own music. The bathroom is divided off with a huge wall of glass and a pull down screen which separates it from the living/bedroom area. It was a clever way to bring natural light into the bathroom, but I would make the blind just a little less transparent....
For both kitchens, I would have items like washing up liquid and cloths as standard, as well as basic condiments and maybe some oils for cooking. The facilities are fantastic and the look is great, but not everyone wanting to use an "apart-hotel' wants to buy all the above, or go from place to place with their own basics.
Like I said, the hosts were really nice and accommodating. I am DEFINITELY returning here when I come back to St Julian. It is in a brilliant location and the hosts have really made a great effort to do something different here. We had our Maltese friends come in for a peek and they were astounded. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Room Tip: The Blue Room is more expensive, but a LOT CHEAPER than staying at, say, Le Meridien, and "Nice...

Dear Emilia,
Thank you for your especially lovely review and apologies for replying so late. I enjoyed sharing this with my team, who were thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us.

I am personally delighted to read your descriptions of our Blue and Orange rooms. This must be one of my personal favourite reviews.

Since your stay we have reinstalled a thicker blind in the Orange bathroom as you suggested,
increased the WiFi signal so that now even in bathrooms our guests have a signal, ensured that washing liquids, cloths, kitchen roll are standard in each studio and even ensured that the Sony sound system is working ( even thought this was also the case on the latter while you stayed with us ..hehe)


Again, thank you for your comments and fabulous review and for sharing your experience with the Trip Advisor community.

We look forward to having you stay with us again shortly and do not hesitate to contact us directly if you are ever coming back to Malta, so we can offer you our best rates!

Have a Great Day,
Ben
