The Scoop: Only stay as a last resort if everything else is booked up. If you do come be ready for a long commute from a bad location (20 minute walk), poor accomadations, and mediocre staff.
(No I'm not a naysayer, I've only done two reviews on Trip Advisor the other was for "The Ashfield House in Dublin, Ireland which was absolutely incredible and I only have positive things to say about that hostel).
The limited good about this hostel though (the Everton Hostel in Liverpool) was a cool beatles mural,the fact that a bus stop was right outside, and the fact that the staff is so indifferent that if you need to book an unplanned extra night they don't do enough business that it is an issue.
Example: Our second night there, was the last night in England for my group of three friends as such we partied hard (we are a group of 21 year olds who wouldnt meet up for two weeks in Spain), I had my first serious Hangover in liverpool but the one great thing is that the staff was so indifferent they didnt mind that I overslept and checked out two hours late).
Breaking it Down:
Location: Terrible (20 minute walk from Train station, 30 minutes from the heart of downtown with nightlife).
Quality of Accomodations:
Room- average (hostel standards)
Bed- average (hostel standards)
Bathroom - Worst in experience in Europe (zero water pressure, moldy spray nossel and shower, toilet took 3 flushes each time to work)-- TERRIBLE
Staff: Less than average (one pretty indifferent, the other helpful)
We checked in and we were greeted by a rather unfriendly black man who seemed like he simply wanted to finish work an go home. We asked for advice for things to see and do an he had nothing to suggest.
We had to make our own way in Liverpool, not easy.
