Kevin and Kevin, the father and son owners, are amazing, friendly, welcoming, helpful, cracking jokes and making tea. Bread, tea, coffee, and juice are provided for breakfast and there is a kitchen for making your own food (not the best hostel kitchen I've seen but certainly serviceable). The rooms and bathrooms are always clean. The staff are mostly young and travelling themselves, and everyone is agreeable, even letting us take mugs of tea to the park across the road.
There are a couple of good areas for socialising, but I recommend you spend your time hanging out in the upstairs kitchen and reception where you will meet all kinds of people coming through and where Kevin and Kevin will regale you with tales of Liverpool and beyond.
The hostel is in a really pretty Georgian neighbourhood, close to the university and the cathedrals, and in a twenty minute walk to the centre/the docks. We've already gone back once and will again.
