Hostel Med located in the busy St Julians is the perfect place to stay if you’re after an area with a young vibe and plenty of nightlife and entertainment in Malta. Located in a quiet back street, at Hostel Med you’re guaranteed a good nights sleep away from the pumping music of Saint Julians Paceville. Just a couple of minutes walk from the beach and all of the islands best nightclubs the location is perfect for young travellers.
Air conditioned rooms and free wifi make the hostel comfortable in those summer months with facilities including an outdoor terrace and BBQ, big communal kitchen, lockers and comfortable living room area with a large TV. The shared spaces make it a nice environment to meet other travellers and enjoy meals together outside in the evenings.
Owners Romain and Milena are a young couple working to provide a unique experience to budget travellers visiting Saint Julians. They have converted Romain’s family home into a two bedroom hostel and since opening in early 2017 they are able to house around 20 guests. Milena, originally from the Netherlands, gives travellers a warm welcome, always with a sweet smile she is happy to help with anything you may need.
The traditional Maltese home is the same house that owner Romain grew up in so the project is close to his heart and it’s what makes Hostel Med so special. The place has a naturally homey feel because it remains as it was when his family once lived there together.
Comfortable beds, fresh linen, rain showers and the smaller more intimate size of the hostel are just some of the features that make Hostel Med the perfect place to relax after a long night out in town.
When you’re ready to see other areas of the island, Saint Julians is a great base for easy access to bus transfers. Romain’s father Anthony who is often present in the hostel is a Maltese local and is happy to give tips for what to do and see around the island as he also works as a tour guide in Malta and has a wealth of knowledge about the area and it’s surroundings.
Although Hostel Med is still in it’s early days, plans are already being made for the future with ideas to add private rooms and a rooftop space to hold yoga classes for guests.
Like no other hostel in Saint Julians, Hostel Med will make you feel right at home.
