Well, I know it's a hostel and you get what you pay for. Since I was moving to malta and decided to book for 2 1/2 weeks until I could get a flat, I decided to go for this since it was cheap. It wasn't even worth the money I paid for it. I wish I booked somewhere else. The... More

Myself and my Girlfriend stayed for 7 nights in September and had a great time. For the price we payed we were pleasantly surprised at how nice our room and balcony was! The staff were friendly and even the guests helped us out. Great affordable hostel, would definitely reccomend.

My stay here was just dreadful. They have a second building they do not tell you about it. This is because it looks nothing like any of these photos at all! This second building (called Balco Symphony) is terrible in every sense of the word. No wonder they don't tell you about it until you've already checked in and it... More

For sure, it's not the best hostel in the world, but it's cheap and good if you go to Malta for looking for a job. Not much new and clean. But if you talk with the staff they help you to satisfy your requests.

A nice family hotel-hostel near the bus stop and the prom. We were picked up at the airport at night and brought to the hotel for free (otherwise it would be difficult to find, as indication on the map here is not exact) ... The building is a bit old as also the equipment of the room, but perfect for... More

Hello everybody, I’ve just spent one month in Balco Symphony with my boyfriend and I feel the duty to write a review about it. We knew that it was quite cheap but the pictures showed a modern and bright room. They were fairly closed to reality but when we started to enjoy our stay we realized that there were many... More

I stayed in a single room in June for 8 nights and it was very cheap. The room was big and includes a tv and fridge.There is a bus stop in front of the hostel, so can go to Valletta. The city centre of Sliema is a 15minute walk away, or you can take a bus. When you come out... More

I'm a college student, and I stayed here for a couple days with three of my friends. The four of us had our own room, with a small balcony and a private bathroom. It was clean, blankets and towels were provided, and there was a bus station nearby that gave you access to the rest of the island. The only... More

I stayed at Balco Malta hostel for 9 days with my boyfriend for an holiday, during the summer. I think that the hostel is good related to the price. It's clean and it's located in a good position, near the waterfront of Sliema and near to the bus stop, to visit the island. The room was quite hot because we... More
