Comfortable Homestay Rooms
What can you expect?
There are few hostels in Malta. However, as an equally affordable alternative, many host families welcome visitors and travellers into their home.
These so-called ‘homestays’ have been enjoyed by many travellers to Malta. It is a kind of halfway house between ‘living-in’ as part of a Maltese family and ‘renting solo’ for total privacy.
The residences of so-called ‘host families’ are licensed by the Maltese government and are inspected regularly. The certified homes offer comfortable, spacious rooms. Reservations for homestay accommodation can be made in either a single room for you alone or a twin room which you share with another person. You may also book a twin room and pay a small supplement to have it to yourself .
Students or other visitors like yourself may reserve their host family accommodation on either bed and breakfast or half board basis at very reasonable rates. You may also chose to reserve a room on self-catering basis when a separate kitchenette is available.
Special long stays rates can also be arranged for you, especially if you are a student staying for the longer period of an Erasmus exchange, when completing a practical training or a medical elective clerkship at the national teaching hospital ‘Mater Dei’.
Moreover, making your reservation directly through this web portal, thus without a travel agency or a language school taking a commission, means a further saving.
Staying with a Maltese family is possibly the best way to come to understand the Maltese culture and traditions. This experience is the preferred option for many travellers to Malta as an alternative to staying in impersonal hotel accommodation.
