At the airport, I managed to book an airport transfer to the hotel at 8 euros and reached the hotel within an hour. I booked the studio only 2 euros more per night - and it turned out to be pretty spacious. There was a kitchenette with sink, stove, kettle, oven and microwave. The weather was great so I opened the windows (no need for the air con). The room itself was clean but the bathroom was old and bathtub wasn't very clean. AND I saw about 4 cockroaches (large ones) during my stay! Argh.
There was free wifi but it was very slow and I had to log on every few minutes which was annoying. Staff were not friendly but not rude and still quite helpful.
Just down the street from the hotel was a bus-stop with buses that bring you to Sliema, Valletta, Rabat (Mdina), and one that even goes to the airport. Very convenient! You can buy bus tickets on the bus for a full day at 2.60euros. Also a late-night convenience store just down the road, and some restaurants and bars in the area.
The breakfast was simple - coffee/tea, cereal, bread/jam/ham/cheese.
On the whole for someone on a budget, this hotel is a good choice.
