Certainly one of best hostel of Malta!
I actually visited two other hostels in Malta but it was nothing compared with this one! This hostel is located in a villa in St Julians, in a quiet neighborhood but not far from the beach, Paceville and buses to take you everywhere you want.
The decoration is amazing (so cosy and colorfull!), we had space for each other, we met people from all over the world! The owner, Penny, is very disponible, friendly and helped us to organise our trip... Plus, she has agreements with taxis (to bring you at the hostel from the airport, or from Paceville (if your feets hurt you too much to walk 15 minutes ;) ) for really cheap prices!
To sum up, we had a great time in Boho hostel, and I would definitely return there if I ever go back to Malta!

Boho is a really great hostel if you're looking for a place in which you can relax either all day long or after a long day spent on sightseeing. The interior and the garden make it look more like a home than a hostel, cosy and encouraging to hang out - I wish I could've spent more time in Malta not only because a week is too little time to experience it, but also because I'd love to spend more time just sitting on the Boho's comfy sofas, reading or simply laying in the hammock. And Penny, the owner, is the nicest person - REALLY helpful and friendly.
In short - I highly recommend this place to people who look for a comfortable place to rest :)

I love Boho. It's a hostel located in a Villa, which is rare, as usually hostels are small and crammy but not this one- this is IMMENSLY spacious. Even the dorms are limited to just six people. I slept in another hostel in st julians where i shared a room with 14 people, and it wasn't nice at all.
It's really colourful and every room looks over the garden- which is huge and full of trees and flowers and there's plenty of place to chill out in.
Facilities like bathrooms and kitchen are spot-on, and the free lockers and free internet were just the cherry on the cake.
Staff is so nice and helpful and organise plenty of activities, which was ideal since I was travelling alone.
Boho is a breath of fresh air and exactly what Malta needed since there aren't many hostels around.
Top rated hostel in St Julians! Sleep there.

Finally! A proper hostel in Malta. Loved Boho, the vibe, the people-it's a super relaxed large hostel (which is rare to find), it was really clean and the staff was super helpful. Really recommend it if you're travelling around Malta, especially if you're out and about alone like I was- great spot to meet other travellers!

This was an extremely pleasant find! I was actually taken to it by a taxi driver who recommended it as his firm works with the Boho Hostel, and offers discounted rates which was a good start. The hostel itself is a Villa, with loads of outdoor space, very much in the Bohemian style (thus the name), and the owner Penny has put a huge amount of work into it and you can tell. It is a hostel for the more refined traveller who is in Malta for the culture and not for the partying. It is calm, quiet, clean and very relaxing. There is free wifi, free lockers, the use of the kitchen, a lovely communal area, and for me, it felt like home from home.
