Packed wth history, and wonderful staff, Embassie is the reason I prefer to stay at small, privately owned hostels. The owner, Kevin, is passionate about this great city and it's history, and has many facts and tales to share. When I do come back to Liverpool, I'll be staying here.

No lift was annoying . Small kitchen, breakfast different on on different days. Not enough outlets in room. Had to press and wait for someone to answer door to enter which was annoying . uncomfortable room downstairs


Bad atmosphere, boring but really nice owner


Embassie Hostel, 1st Hostel in Liverpool, not mechanized, well administered, great, friendly atmosphere, a family run business, with a history of friendships and over the years many people who’ve met here have gotten married! Toasty and coffee available 24/7, jams, peanut butter & teas. Fun TV room, cooking kitchen. Including a Thursday Tour by Kevin Sr, a Beatles contemporary the most fun, interesting, knowledgable Beatles tour that ends at the Cavern, the best!


I've been to Embassy Backpackers before and made a point of coming back here when I returned to Liverpool. The staff is all super friendly, helpful, and kind. Kevin Senior is a treasure and a great host- if you can, try to plan your trip so you're there Thursday for his Beatles tour. I was a little disappointed that there weren't enough lockers in my dorm room- I was on the top floor and had to use a locker in the basement to lock up my valuables when I went out.


The location is fantastic. It's in a quiet neighbourhood, a short walk away from local amenities, transportation, and the city centre. The staff were quite good and welcoming and made me feel more at ease. They were also very generous! However, if you're looking for a good night's sleep, this is probably not the place for you. Music is allowed to be played very loud, even late, and there is no curfew nor any house rules regarding common courtesy and being respectful of other guests.

It was good hostel, a bit rough round the edges but everything was there and clean. The owner Kevin does a very good Beatles tour around Liverpool for free, that's definitely worth doing. I would stay at again.


I had a great time here. The staff were very friendly (although I sometimes got confused if people worked here, just stopped by or were long-term residents). They had a Thursday night Beatles tour which ended with tickets to The Cavern. I had a great time at that. On the Wednesday night one of their friends came in and sang and played guitar for us. Everyone was very friendly which made it so much easier. Thanks for the memories:)


Great hostel. Old, but has a very home like feel and the staff their are excellent and extremely friendly. It was sad to leave such a welcoming place. Not too far from the centre of Liverpool, where the party is. Thanks guys for the awesome hospitality.


Had a great stay at Embassie Liverpool Backpackers! Our hosts were very warm and friendly, giving us good places to go in the city of Liverpool and making our stay very accommodating - Kevin even gave each us a Beatles memento, which I believe will be a great keepsake. Would definitely recommend!

This is really a good place and it has a true soul, you feel welcome and definitely it's the probably the best hostel if you're a Beatles fan! Had a good stay here, bed was confy, clean bed linen, good breakfast, nice staff. :)


Kevin, the host does tell great stories about the beatles and is a very nice and accommodating one! so anyone who wishes to know about Beatles but ain't willing to pay for the museum. this is your best shot at a very informative one!


Loved it why would u not stay here
