Two Pillows Boutique Hostel is situated right in the heart of Sliema opposite Valletta the capital city of Malta, in one of the most central, convenient yet tranquil areas on the island. We are literally a stone's throw away from the sea and within walking distance to some great beaches and lidos. You can stroll down to cafes, bars, restaurants and shops in just a couple of minutes. This makes for an ideal base to explore the Maltese Islands.

Even though you will not want to leave our beautiful building, at some point you probably will :) Sliema Ferries is steps away where you can buy pretty much anything from groceries to designer clothes, tours, bus tickets, scuba diving and grand harbour rides. Sliema Ferries very conveniently offers frequent boats which cross over to Valletta in 4 minutes. The trip is across Sliema to Valletta harbour and is definitely recommended.

Shops and Cafes are also just down the road. If you want to do some more serious shopping, Bizazza street and the Plaza shopping centre are just 5 minutes away, while The Point shopping mall is a 10 minute walk. For those who just want to enjoy the beach, there are some great beaches and lidos within walking distance from Two Pillows. Pjazza Santa Anna is just a 5 minute walk and is an excellent spot to people watch while using the free public wifi.

Valletta is cheap to get to from our hostel. You can either walk around the harbour and get to Valletta from Sliema in less than one hour or else just walk down from the hostel to Sliema ferries and catch one of the many Sliema to Valletta ferries throughout the day. Alternatively you can very easily catch the cheap buses operating directly from Sliema Ferries.

For all the rest, just ask us and we'll either tell you how to get there or else we'll get you there ourselves.

DIRECTIONS by BUS and WALK: Take any bus that passes along the SLIEMA FERRIES. There are 5 stops called FERRIES 1, 2...5 - all within a few metres from each other so you can stop at any of them. Once you stop at the Ferries, look out for the Marks & Spencer shop - FERRIES 5 is right in front of it. If you stop on Ferries 1,2,3 or 4, just cross the road from the sea side. Facing the entrance to Marks & Spencer, start walking towards the left for 40m. Look out for a corner make up shops called Inglot and start walking up TRIQ SAN PIJU V. Two Pillows is less than a hundred metres up the road on the right hand side of the street. Look out for a lovely facade with red doors and windows.
