Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location, being close to both lime street and central station. The beds weren't the most comfortable but that's my only gripe.
Pretty reasonable hostel. Overpriced at the weekend however. Good breakfast! Kitchen could have ovens, would make sense. Overall quite good but as far as hostels go this place punches well below it's potential. (It could be AMAZING if some time, money and passion were invested...) Chris is great on the desk and Amaya is lovely.
I was there for only one night but the only thing that bothered me was the cold shower in my room.
Very nice set up with super cool decor. Great breaky and fun people.
Checking in was anightmare. It took 45 minutes for me to get checked in with a key to my room.
The staff there is absolutely fantastic!!! Big thank you's especially to Andrea and to Chris! Made me feel at home there!

Huge hostel and I was staying on the 4th floor (thankfully there was a lift). Very good location with Lime St. Station and city centre within walking distance. Supermarket just around the corner. Clean toilet with free shower gel. Comfortable bed. Nice breakfast with things like porridge and fruit (don't usually find them with hostel breakfast!). I didn't even need to wash the dishes after breakfast. Perfect for lazy people! This is one of the better hostels I've ever stayed in UK.
The hostel is comfortable and with good atmosphere, the staf is very friendly, the rooms are clean, good size and beautiful designs in general; I like so much the message painted on the wall. The breakfast was nice !! . Excellent ubication is near of all touristics places.
Really appreciated the free towels!!
Very good hostel and very central to everything in the city centre.
Overall it was a good stay. The dorms felt dirty and old though. They looked nothing like I had seen in the photos. The ensuite could also do with a bit of an upkeep. Staff were great though and there was a good atmosphere downstairs in the bar.
My assigned bed was dirty upon arrival, and the room was quite small and dirty as well. Bathroom soaps and floor towels were never changed, trash wasn't taken out, etc. Our room was broken into during our stay, and although nothing was taken, the door to the room was wide open and the trim was busted off the door frame. After someone came to "fix" it, the man at the reception desk assured us that the hostel was safe, but that the door had been broken many times before. Internet hardly useable.
Good atmosphere, nice staff and a pretty central location. Only complaint is that the bathrooms were pretty filthy and there was hardly any water coming out of the showers.
If I can offer any advice, it would be do NOT stay here during the Grand National meeting at Aintree. The hostel was completely full of disrespectful drunk guys who kept me up all night with the lights on, talking, farting, burping.. I checked out after the first night of my intended 3 night stay. The staff were nice but only gave me a refund for 1 night due to 24hr cancellation policy. I'm sure it's a nice place when there is a backpacker crowd. Just don't do it to yourself during the National
its ok. but there really is no atmosphere here. i spent 5 days and i never saw anyone in the garden, kitchen or other common areas although it was fully booked. sad place - especially if compared to the very good hatters in birmingham and manchester!
The atmosphere of the common areas is really good, but you could improve a lot the dorms, they look old, not very clean (as much as the carpet and toiletts) and they don't match at all with the general design of the hostel... I wouln't stay there in one of their dorms again.
This hostel is absolutely fantastic! The building is amazing and it looks like a medieval castle. Although the building is very old, the interior of the place is modern and the decoration is beautiful. It has all the social amenities you would expect from a hostel: common room, games room, a bar, fully equipped kitchen, laundry room, garden and much more, and all of them are fantastic. I slept in a four beds bedroom and, although the room was kinda small, it was very clean, cosy and comfortable,
Service was good but just a little pricey compared to other hostels

It was a great stay in this hostel, the staff and facilities are really good. My only concern is that the rooms were so cold, and the heater was really small for the room. It is too far from the center and Albert Dock, so if you are planning going there you have to walk around 20 minutes or 30 minutes, though it is a nice hostel.
The location was perfect. But the room and the washroom was not clean enough. One of the light in the washroom was broken but nobody fix it
