Very big hostel. No character but very clean and everything is well organised. Especially that you have to give a deposit for dishes because of thieves experiences from hostel stuff. Next to beach (50m). A great generator beside the sleeping rooms disturbs sleeping (female dorm). Handy, easy and uncomplicated.

I always like this hostel. Great fun. It changes every time. New construction. New ideas and great people. Sometimes the staff get pissed with you. Like the long haired bearded guy who has no clue what he is talking about. I will be back next time.

A converted NHS hospital with showers only in the morgue basement,wi-fi golems, and exotic residents makes this hostel one of those "best live Victorian London" moments. 100% goes to the staff and I have extended my stay by another 4 days. (Bad weather and closed airports were not the reason)

The management clearly view guests as people and not as money. Each bunk has curtains around it offering privacy for changing and sleeping. On check-in you receive two cleanly laundered sheets and a disposable hygenic pillow-case. At breakfast ladies in uniform run round collecing plates and cups and then wash them in the kitchen for the next users. Other hostels also do this but usually for twice the price and not as centrally located. This hostel is next to the British Museum....


Everton Hostel

Liverpool, England
100%

Just a little bit extra makes a difference to a b'packer on a long trip. Like free laundry, a wider selection of breakfast than other hostels and longer than most (5 hours). Since Liverpool has now improved as a tourist location this hostel is worthy of a 3 night stay to see all that the city can offer (Tate Liverpool, Beatles, Mersey Ferry, Museums and Galleries galore (slavery, emigration, Walker, FACT) football stadia and great clubs / live music. Onwards to Isle of Man or Ireland ...

Hostel staff try to treat guests the best and this one does, but with 1 exception. Never mix long-term residents with travellers. A fatal mistake! I was given a room with 1 other occupant - a long termer who did his laundary at night and hung it all over the room, who kept his food under the bed attracting flies, who read his book late at night leaning out the window with his beer and cigarette (illegally smoking)and who woke up very early making a noise to get ready for work. Cleanliness loss.

As a wandering Irishman all I ever wanted was a warm and cozy bed and a hot shower - and this hostel offers this and a lot more. I used it as a base for 11 days to see Santiago, the nearby sea towns and resorts and the montain ski resorts and hot springs. It is the cheapest, it is the warmest, it is within walking distance of all the day and night attractions and museums. I was given the best advise on local soccer, ballet, movies, laundry and Coffee with legs. Stay here for home away from home

Tour-books tell you cannot find black-cabs to go south of the river after dark. Many incorrectly believe this to be a safety issue. The truth is they are protecting it from tourists. Hoot-A-Nanny is no exception. Great live band, open till 3am, fully equipped kitchen with supermarkets 5 minutes away clean showers and sheets, and a key for all doors in-case you go to Brixton Academy (top London gig venue). Clean common room, leather arms-chairs, wide-screen TV, balcony over the beer-garden.

Go for Room 5 - some talk in their sleep (\"Oh yeah, I can\'t wait, this is going to be fun\" said the Canadian girl and the rest of the room responded \"we can\'t wait either\", some talk to their dead ancestors in clicking languages (the Xhosa) some live there for months (the Aussie), some have gadgets and never leave (The China-man), some work in Soho bars (The Frenchman) and some are just tourists (the Chilean ladies and the Irishman and the American) - and you get a free drink from the bar

next to the cemetery, far from the city center, double booked beds means you are woken in the middle of the night, no luggage lockers, many extremely young tour groups (8-14) means you are actually limited to breakfast times as they are given preference etc etc

Watch out for bad staff ! A hostel is a bed and when staff wake you up at 3 am to check for free beds (because their records are messed up) then the hostel is not worth returning to. I was in a 4 bed room with 2 people - one other and me. At 3 am the light when on and a staff member asked if there were free beds in a loud voice. Clearly 2 free beds. Then 2 people were escorted in and the sheets changed on the beds. Half an hour later and the lights were still on. Not nice at all !!!!!

If you want to be within walkimg distance of everything then this is the place. However the showers overflow a bit and the price of a beer in the bar is the same as the price of a bed - a refelection that this is a hotel and has a limited number of dorm rooms as well as many single/double rooms.

The only problem in this hostel is that other guests, such as Spanish students, are frequent drug users. This spoils the atmosphere in the common / TV room where they smoke. This is also against the law but the security have problems getting them out each night.

My Place Dublin

The rooms were cleaned every day but the toilets and showers were not. The toilets do not have locks on the doors and the seats are broken. Security is bad as often people would stay extra nights without paying or would have guests in for the night. This created a bad atmosphere with the hostel staff. They were very helpful but the situation is the owners and not theirs - many of the staff are also backpackers just traveling and earning something while doing so. However the location is great, the character is great with lots of fun such as a snooker table and large communal area. I could recommend this hostel but be wary ....
