Welcome to the Old Bakery (Il-Forn) of Birgu, a medieval building dating back to the time of the Knights of St. John, where mysterious past and history mix with colorful, funky artworks. For a couple, we offer our Il-Forn Palatial Studio space in direct access to the courtyard on the upper level. Our place is within walking distance to many attractions, public transport, shops, restaurants, bars, banks, pharmacy, etc.
On the Upper Floor, we have the Palatial Studio: a fantastic studio space with a huge window overlooking the courtyard - the room is spacious - 50 m2 with 6 meter high ceilings. This room can accommodate a couple.
There is a small kitchenette, fridge, dining table, and a sofa.
The Courtyard (50 m2 large) - houses lots of plants, your own BBQ, a hammock and lots of art all around- really something unique.
On the Lower Level, is the hostel area. We have a miniature kitchen, equipped with stove, microwave, fridge, and water boiler. You can prepare a simple meal. This is a self cleaning kitchen.
Hostel space is extensive, and can room up to 8 additional guests on bunk beds. On this level, we have a shared bathroom and toilets.
There is also a large dining area, with sofa, and a little library corner.
There is a free Wifi. One flight of stairs leading up to the Studio Apartment (from the main entrance) which may be unsuitable for younger children.

Welcome to Il-Forn Art Hostel, where mysterious past and history mix with colorful, funky artworks. It was running as an Art Gallery & Wine Bar from 2002 till 2016. The layout on the building is impressive, approx 400 sqm, 2 separate levels with huge indoor courtyard. The rooms are funky, with thousands of painting by the artist Clemens Hasengschwandtner, one of the most well-known artists in Malta. The place still remains as a Gallery (to view by appointment).
A bit about who we are.
We are a colorful family. I am Austrian, the lady of the house, Noni is Malaysian. We are both passionate cooks and adventurous travellers along with our daughter, Cheyenne.
We hope you will enjoy the colorful, laidback stay at Il-Forn!
