2/10 Poor

There is no in-person 24/7 concierge service and the phone number that was provided was not responsive during the middle of the night when we got locked out of our hotel room and we had to sleep on the floor until morning.

Like sleeping in a cupboard!
We got moved to another room, above a restaurant on Merchant St. Room it was tiny, no natural ventilation. It was noisy too as above kitchen. I couldn't wait to get out of there. Shower was cold on arrival to at 4pm. Room needed a clean. Dust balls & hair bands under bed, mould needed bleaching in shower, & toilet rim very black.... paid nearly 100e for this ...

The room itself is nice, clean, ok bed, maybe too little pillow but nothing a fold over wont fix. But the noise from other guest due to very little isolation from door was a bit annoying when I wanted to sleep.

Lovely House
Stayed one night all ok Beware that the address is 114 St Nicholas St Valletta & not the office address. The electric had gone out on the keypad which prevented our entry. We called the office & they came with a key. We waited for an hour for the issue to be sorted. The keypad was not lit up. Other than this incident of no ones fault it is good accommodation. Very easy to get to The Gut & Strait Street

unexpensive And nice, heart of Valletta
The apartment is quite nice and beautifully located in Velleta. My trip was last minute, so there was some confusion, as the address that shows in the reservation is an office, and not easy to find. I arranged my transportation to that location and then had to walk all over to find , first the office and then the place. The staff was not too helpful. Also, there is no one at the place. I had a problem with the internet connection and had to walk back to the office to talk to someone about it. Otherwise, very nice. A little noisy.

The hostel is a bit complicated to find. If you put in the hostel name on Google Maps, it will direct you to the office and not to the hostel dorms... I didn't know this and I wish the hostel were aware of this and would either inform about this in their emails, or if possible, have it changed on Google Maps. The good thing is that I got help from the emergency phone when I couldn't find the place, but I think it would've been nicer for the person on the other end of the phone if I wouldn't have had to call in the first place, i.e. if I had known about this. The bathrooms were clean and modern, but there were only three of them on the ground floor (as far as I'm concerned) for the whole hostel, so in the busy season it could possibly get crowded, plus if your bed is on the second floor, you have to go up and down between the floors to access them. There were no doors to the dorms, only a big partitioning curtain separating the beds from the hallway. This could potentially be unsafe, along with the fact that the hostel is never staffed. I only stayed for a night so I didn't have problems, but I do think that since there isn't even a door that you can lock for the 'room', lockers should not be charged for, as it should be a basic feature of a hostel to feel a sense of safety of being able to at least lock the room at night with your belongings. All in all, the hostel was clean and tidy, but these are points that could and should be improved.

Handy downtown Valletta if you don't mind paperwor
Room was ok. Somewhat awkward pre-registration and city-tax payment process, compounded by them initially including a cleaning fee which did not apply. Apart from that, communications were thorough and good, allowing for access and departure outside office hours (the apartment itself is not staffed). International power socket did not work for laptop charging, meaning a UK plug adaptor was essential. Location was very good for Valletta attractions and activities.
