Hostel of the Week Archive: YHA Liverpool

Described by Carl Jung as the 'pool of life', a city break in Liverpool will get you drinking up culture and dancing all night. Our vibrant and fabulously refurbished YHA Liverpool is a safe and central base to explore the iconic City of Pop; we're super close to live music venues, world-famous attractions and legendary nightlife. You'll find Beatles-inspired artwork (check out our Wall of LOVE) and fun-loving travellers - now all you need is a ticket to ride.

City Life

You don't have to walk far to be having fun in the heart of Liverpool's eclectic party scene. We're right next to the trendy Baltic Triangle district, a collection of warehouses housing bars, clubs and arty multi-purpose venues. Cultural hangout Camp and Furnace's 'Food Slam' supper parties offer a heady mix of exceptional food and pumping dance music from local DJs. Beatlemania lives on at Mathew Street, with live music eight days a week at The Cavern Club (don't miss Saturday's Beatles tribute). There's something for everyone, with a dazzling LGBT quarter around Dale street, student fave Krazyhouse in Concert Square, Latin dancing in Seel Street and specialist ale pubs in Hardman Street. This creative city is home to the Liverpool Biennial - the UK's largest international contemporary art festival - and every two years explodes with a celebration of diverse exhibitions, cutting-edge installations and memorable events. Get down at the docks with groundbreaking 3-day music event Sound City or join the spirit of multiculturalism at Africa Oye, the UK's largest free festival of African music and culture. With so much going on, why not ask the YHA Liverpool staff to recommend a night out to remember.

The Hostel

After a £70,000 renovation, YHA Liverpool is unmistakably Liverpudlian with its tasty Scouse specials and ambient lounge decorated with the Fab Four. With great transport links, free Wi-Fi and 24 hour access, this modern hostel is ideal for an exciting weekend in the big city. You can paint the town red and sleep secure, reassured by our savvy CCTV and buzzer-system gateway. Our sleek bar is the heart of the hostel - you'll meet new friends hanging out here to enjoy the mood lighting, plush furniture and drinks before hitting Liverpool's lively bars and clubs. Kids can come together in our updated TV lounge or let off some steam on the grass and picnic tables outside. There's always something going on at YHA Liverpool, so bag a bargain at our Pop-Up Charity Shop this September or leave us a personal message on our quirky Wall of Love. Whether you're a family of keen tourists or just desperate for the bright lights of the Baltic Triangle, we're a top choice for a budget break. And at just five minutes from the Albert Docks, we can't get much closer to Liverpool life.

family Attractions

Named as a European Capital of Culture, Liverpool is a fantastic hot spot for tourists and sightseers - you'll leave feeling smarter after eight free museums and some of the best modern art galleries in the UK. With more public sculptures than anywhere else in the UK (well, apart from Westminster), Tate Liverpool's impressive collection and breathtaking science-meets-art experience FACT make Liverpool a first stop for young urban creatives. YHA Liverpool is five minutes from the historic Albert Docks; home to the award-winning Beatles Story attraction and over 160 years of fascinating maritime history. Don't miss out on the humbling International Slavery Museum or a chance to see Liverpool from the mighty River Mersey on one of its magnificent ferries. Liverpool's awe-inspiring Anglican cathedral is the biggest in Britain and the city has streets of stunning architecture to get lost in. Why not book a Magical Mystery Tour to see some of its landmarks or brave the Shiverpool ghost walk? Liverpool has more parks than Paris, so relax in the beautiful Sefton Park Palmhouse after a hard day's shopping in Liverpool ONE - an open-air haven of ultra-hip boutiques and highstreet faves.

Walking and Sport

Blow away the cobwebs with a rich variety of walking and rambling routes just outside Liverpool. Scenic Wirral is just a short bus ride away and there are hundreds of lovely park, countryside and heritage walks for ramblers to enjoy. Venture to beautiful National Trust location Formby Nature Reserve for breezy sea views and coastal walking and cycling trails - you might even spot a rare red squirrel. Liverpool is a fab cycle city and we'll help you out with bike hire, or adrenaline junkies can see the docks in a whole new light at the nearby Liverpool Watersports Centre. Footie fans can make a pilgrimage to their favourite Liverpool football club with a tour around Liverpool's Anfield Stadium or Everton's Goodison Park; we won't judge who you support!
