What a wonderful village and a fantastic if somewhat creepy hostel. Such a shame it's closing. It is very Catholic. I had a single room which had just a bed, no curtains and an ancient fan. It was surprisingly quiet considering there was a giant party going on in the village. The staff were wonderful and very helpful. I really...

This is a place to relax and chill out. Yes its huge and some might find all the catholic paraphernalia a bit spooky but this is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. The staff are very hospitable and helpful. Its clean and the dorms are massive so that you will never be congested or cramped for...

My visit in this hostel was terrible. In the beginning the lady told us, that she didn´t have a room we booked on line (4 beds, shared) otherwise we have to pay extra, so we stayed in 8 beds room. In every room there were crosses with Jesus, huge pictures with saints... really creepy, like from some horror movie.. In...

Stayed in May 2013 for one night only. It was super worth it as my plan was to have an overnight stay in Gozo due to an annual event called "Notte Gozitana" and this place was perfect. The hostel is about 8/10 minutes walking distance from the ferry and just 1 minute away from bus stops going either direction. The...

I loved this hostel for all the wrong reasons! It's spooky, religious memorabilia always brought a smile to my face, as did the old fashioned furniture. It feels like you're somewhat staying in a haunted house. The old staff is friendly, for the most part, and the location is great- just a 10 minute walk from the harbour. A bit...

The people there are like a family, very helpful staff! Amazing view for which you pay just so little... Gozo island is very beautiful and worth to visit. If you wanna meat nice friendly people from all over the world, you have to be at this hostel. It is a bit spooky if you are on your own, since the...

Stayed there in the beginning of April, i.e. not yet the very hight of the tourist season. Ghajnsielem & Mgarr were so quiet, no nightlife and just one restaurant open after 7 pm. The hostel was also quite empty (i imagine in summer the place gets much busier). St.Joseph Home has a unique atmosphere. Beautiful front house garden with plants,...

“Think about room location, either close to a bathroom or far away. If the views are important for you...one side has a really good view of Fort Chambray from the back, the countryside and of course the Mediterranean.”
