I was in Liverpool for a quick stopover to watch Liverpool FC play. I could not have been happier. There were people from all over the world to chat with and the staff were very nice. It was a great spot to unwind and have a beer while sitting in the TV room. Showers could have been a little nicer.

I would definitely recommend the Embassie, especially for travellers that are fans of The Beatles. If it is possible try and stay there on a Thursday night so that you can join the free Beatles tour with Kevin Sr - overflowing with anecdotes about the Beatles and an journey into the history of Liverpool you will get some brilliant insights...

Embassie Hostel is a nice located hostel with character. The hostel is located in an area with lots of memories linked to The Beatles, which old and young Kevin (owners) will love to tell about you when you ask them. The city center is a 15 minute walk, which is fine as long as it doesn't rain ;-) The staff... More

I booked this hostel for a stag weekend. It was cheap and not too far from the city centre. I don't really look for much more from hostels! On arrival we were warmly greeted by Kevin Sr, who told us what was what, and that he'd given a bunch of free passes to the Cavern Club to a member of... More

You'd expect basics for the price. But thus place needs a good clean. One of the lads in our group said he'd burn his clothes when he got home! Unless this place has a refurbishment avoid! There are as others have pointed out, other places to stay. I dont blame any individual who booked this for our event though.

The place is an average bed and breakfast type accommodation. Located quite close to the center of Liverpool and has some landmarks close as well. The breakfast was very simple yet enough to start your day. Toasts, sweets, juices and hot drinks available all the time. The owners were kind enough to great us when we arrived (we came as... More

I travelled with a group of friends for leisure, and when we booked the Embassie we were told we had a dorm for 8. When we arrived we were in a dorm for 12, the room was freezing, the beds were dirty and the place had an unpleasant smell about it. We asked if there was space for another person... More

Reading some of the reviews before I went and then back since I have been I think it makes a difference to how you are treated whether you are male or female. I wasn't made to feel welcome by the staff. The other residents were lovely but the staff definitely not. Whereas men were welcomed with open arms. One of... More

GOOD: Loved the chilled out atmosphere and the supreme friendliness of the staff here. Everyone was so nice and there was never any problem giving advice on where to go or what to do. The hostel manager put on a BBQ during a big football game and then invited everyone to eat his hamburgers... super nice! The all-day coffee and... More

This Place makes Time travelling possible. From the very beginning on i enjoyed my stay at the Embassie. The staff ( which includes Students, Friends, Family members and many more..) makes you feel welcome and gives you an unterstanding of what it means to downshift in these fast and modern times. Not only because of the Beatles, music plays an... More
