Meet the team
YHA Liverpool Albert Dock 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.
