This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Valletta.

Valletta, Malta Island, Malta, is the capital of the country, located on the island with the name of Malta too. As Valletta is Malta’s capital, you may expect a big city, but in fact Valletta has a population of only just over six thousand, and you can walk from one side of the city to the other in fifteen minutes. Despite its small size, Valletta is a bustling and attractive city that is certainly worth visiting for one or a few days.

Valletta’s old city has been put on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and you will understand why when you walk around. Valletta is a historical city with many sites, most of them accessible for free. Wandering around Valletta is like wandering around an open-air museum; Valletta is just a pretty city and you will be stunned by its architecture. It’s true that you will see more tourists than locals in Valletta, but the city is a very pleasant place to be. Republic Street is Valletta’s most famous street, with many shops and cafes; this is also where most tourists spend their time. However, if you just walk away a few blocks from Republic Street, you may not be sharing the street with any other tourists, but the architecture is just as pretty as on Republic Street.

Your options for hostels in Valletta will be extremely limited; even budget accommodation is hardly available in Valletta. However, this is no problem at all, as the city of Sliema is only five minutes away by ferry and a round trip will not cost much. In Sliema, you can find decent hostels for an affordable price. There are also frequent buses to cities elsewhere in Malta if you prefer to book a hostel there. Night buses are also available, but the network is not as extensive and frequent as during the day.
