We stayed in the pods this week . They are a great price and exactly as we expected . They are a pod room with all mod cons very clean . The location is superb to Liverpool Central also all food venues location beside are excellent. Overall it's as we expected . Yes it has no windows and is in the basement but realistically we slept in the rooms and we were out & about during the day & evening so it's just perfect for what we wanted

Stayed: March 2014, travelled as a couple

I saw the hostel for all of 5 minutes before I went to the bar next door for a few drinks and some dinner. We came back later that evening only to be accused by the hostel of smuggling in a blonde midget (no this is not a joke). I was then ejected from the hostel at 5 in the morning where I proceeded to get a 4 hour bus back home... No refund. The staff were rude, objectionable and lacked decorum. Frankly we couldn't wait to get out of there. The other guests were also horrific and decided it upon them self to form a self righteous linch mob in the corridors of the hostel which almost resulted in several fights. If any of this appeals to you I urge you to stay here... I won't again!

We are very aware of the events that took place, and as mentioned through phone calls between yourself and management, we have physical evidence from our security camera of said event.

As stated on the room bond that you as a group signed, no guests are to be brought back into the hostel. This was not an accusation as your dormitory was male only thus prompting our night security to ask your female visitor to leave on two separate occasions.

As you have stated in conversation with management, you left the hostel on your own accord after verbally abusing a member of staff (which again is unacceptable as stated in the room bond)

At no point was you or your group asked to leave, as a matter of a fact, members of your group were apologetic for both yours and their actions.

In regards to other guests being horrific, our night security was very vocal in asking them to not get involved in your discussion even prompting them to leave reception. From his report and evidence on cctv nothing resulted in any verbal or physical actions between guests.

We are very sad to hear you won't be staying with us again, and are also disheartened that you have left such a negative review after you had already apologised for your behaviour to management.

As a busy city centre hostel, we find the safety of both guests and staff very important, hence our strict policy of no visitors.

Big dorms, nice bathroom, clean, tidy, quiet enough despite the large party crowd that stay here. Perfect for hens, stags band lads going to a game. 7/8 min walk from concert square but in a good area itself for bars and nightclubs...and free toast!

Friendly staff, but the place seemed a bit run down. Room was dimly lit and bathroom not very clean. Bunk beds were not very sturdy, swayed with any movement. Location is pretty good, walking distance to bars and restaurants.

Thank you for your honest review, we are currently in the process of refurbishing the hostel dorms, kitchen and games room. We would like to note that the corridors are dimly lit as to not disturb other guests when dormitory doors are opened. Thank you again for your comments, we will take them on board.

I have never written a negative review in my 20+ stays at different hostels. First of all, it was an absolute ghost town, which maybe they cannot help but it sure did not add to my experience. Then they advertise free toast 24/7, which would have been nice, but during my two night stay I never once saw a loaf of bread in the kitchen. Even if I had, there were barely any cutlery to use, and as a traveller I met on the second night observed: "There is only one spoon". Finally, on my last night were an Australian couple in the room beside who were fighting, screaming, crying, and even beating each other and the staff did nothing about it. The shower sprays water absolutely everywhere as well.

The room was clean and the location good. Those were the main (and big) pros in a hostel that was full of cons.

I would not return.

Hi there,

Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
We are sorry to hear about the couple in the adjoining room to you, unfortunately our staff could not hear them. When we do hear disturbances we do ask guest's to keep the noise down.
December is a pretty quiet month with the lead up to Christmas, although we do try, we cannot help that.

Thanks again!

Excellent location, but dirty rooms that didn't have working wifi. The bathrooms in particular are old and smell weird. Also from towel service you'll get a left-behind beach towel. A cheap place to stay but not as cheap as it should be. Backpackers and student visitors, pass on this one.
