“safe, welcoming and value for money”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

booked this for my daughter who had an audition at LIPA and we couldn't get her into any of the recommended places. I looked on the website and was impressed so went ahead, Couldn't have made a better choice! 5 minutes away from LIPA, 10 mins from Lime St Station. Excellent facilities and most important - very secure and welcoming! Thanks for looking after my daughter so well - she will be back!!

Room Tip: booked a double room for the same price as a dorm bed in any other places!

The hostel is 5 minutes away from the cathedral. 20-25 minutes away from both train station and caoach station on foot. The city centre (seaside) is also 20 minutes away on foot. While you are walking towards the seaside, you will be walking through crowded streets. The staff were very helpful. Before you ask, you will get every information about Liverpool :)

I stayed for one night at this hostel on 5th December 2012 and could not ask for more. For £20, you genuinely have owners who display an interest in you and who want to addressany grievances you may have within the hostel. All the other guests where chatty and welcoming. The rooms and bathrooms/showers were to a good standard. The beds were clean. I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Liverpool (coming from a southerner from Bournemouth!)

It is clean, safe and cosy, and the owner is a great person and a big fan of the beatles! I really loved this hostel and I recommend it for everyone, great atmosphere and the owner and his daughter are so friendly and kind, even they gave us a souvenir! if you are looking for the best, this is the right choice!

This hostel has a lot of character - probably due to the owner. Rooms and showers are standard. Breakfast is good, simply self serve but there is a lot on offer so you can fill up and spend less on lunch or dinner. Location is slightly out of city centre but it's a nice walk in anyway.

Kevin and Kevin, the father and son owners, are amazing, friendly, welcoming, helpful, cracking jokes and making tea. Bread, tea, coffee, and juice are provided for breakfast and there is a kitchen for making your own food (not the best hostel kitchen I've seen but certainly serviceable). The rooms and bathrooms are always clean. The staff are mostly young and travelling themselves, and everyone is agreeable, even letting us take mugs of tea to the park across the road.

There are a couple of good areas for socialising, but I recommend you spend your time hanging out in the upstairs kitchen and reception where you will meet all kinds of people coming through and where Kevin and Kevin will regale you with tales of Liverpool and beyond.

The hostel is in a really pretty Georgian neighbourhood, close to the university and the cathedrals, and in a twenty minute walk to the centre/the docks. We've already gone back once and will again.

Room Tip: The girls dorm on the top floor is quieter as it is away from the street.
