The hostel

This 160 bed Youth Hostel has rooms in the following layout:

3 x 2 bed en-suite, 6 x 3 bed en-suite (all have double beds), 2 x 4 bed en-suite (both on the ground floor, with disabled access), 2 x 5 bed en-suite, 17 x 6 bed en-suite, and 2 x 8 bed (not en-suite, but shared bathroom along corridor).

We have recently redecorated our bedrooms so they're fresher and we've made improvements to the toilets and showers.

Grounds: excellent green space for children to play in. Adults can sit and relax with the odd beer or three.

The Youth Hostel is safe and secure and locked every night at 11pm. Access by buzzer only for residents between 11pm and 6am. There is also a games room, TV room and a thriving bar and reception area to hang out in - settle down and make some new friends. We've added ambience to our social spaces by changing our flooring, furniture and lighting so our bar is now the perfect place to hang out before a night out in Liverpool. We also have a meeting room for up to 15 people.

Meet the team

YHA Liverpool Manager Cat: I’m Cat and I have worked for YHA on and off for 11 years now, working my way up from Team Member to Catering Manager, Relief Manager to Hostel Manager. I have worked all over the country for YHA, starting my career in beautiful Bath before moving to the Lakes, Peak District, Wales, the South Coast and now Liverpool...but as I grew up over the water on the Wirral, it feels like coming home being back in this great city!

Manager recommends: Anfield Stadium is a definite must when visiting Liverpool on a cheap city break. The city has amazing museums, full of history, music and culture which are well worth exploring. Believe it or not, Liverpool has lovely beaches for a day out, and with cheap accommodation in this friendly backpackers hostel, you've got everything you need for a great Liverpool weekend break.
