André Barranco thinks…

"The hostel is very clean, the lockers are big and the staff is great. The bar on the underground has a big screen, great to watch sports. The rooms are spacious, and the location is the best possible."

Liked: Needed key cards to get to elevator and floors and rooms

Disliked: The floors weren't very clean, lots of dust and hair in our room. Also, it's right in the center of shops so it's quite load at night, but it's close to everything

Liked: This centrally located hostel rules! Only a 10 minute walk from the station, the Hoax couldn't be better! Friendly staff, nice clean and new rooms! Right in the centre of town, so everything is a short walk! You would be foolish to stay anywhere else!

Liked: Close to the train station, lockers in the rooms - just bring your own lock.

Disliked: The bathrooms and shower are in the hostel rooms, so quite noisy in the mornings, the shower is approx 1 metre square and the change room part of it is also 1 metre square, so fairly difficult to get changed in.

Liked: Great location, very chic hostel with Matthew Street literally around the corner! Gonna stay there when I go back for sure!

Disliked: They have an awesome bar in the hostel but it was closed everyday I was there. Granted it was Sunday to Wednesday. But they still have a restaurant connected with a bar so its really a non issue I guess. Really good hostel.

Liked: Hostel is in an awesome location. Espeically if you are a Bealtes fan (who isn't?). The hostel is located right around the corner from the Cavern Club. Its also really close to great shopping, and a short walk to lime street station. Which was super handy. Rooms were really really nice, modern and clean. The bunk beds have their own powerpoint and light. I would definetly return & recommend to anyone staying in Liverpool.

Disliked: Unfortunately, when I stayed i had an issue with my room. I was locked out because someone had locked the door from inside room. Reception didn't have a master key & were unable to unlock it and I was located to another room for the night. The whole situtation was quite frustrating and in the morning reception didn't really seem to care. So my stay ended on a bit of a bad note. However, I know that was a once off and rare situtation, and shouldn't take away from the vibe, location or quality of the hostel.

Liked: Great room set up, fabulous location and many great entertainment places :)

Disliked: Was disappointing when majority of the staff were quite blunt, rude and unfriendly when it came to offering advice. Their unhelpful manner left us feeling a bit lost and frustrated. It's a shame the staff acted this way as everything else about the hostel was fabulous.

Liked: Excellent location, especially for the price! Had good size lockers, and you could sit up on the bottom bunk beds - don't get that often! In our dorm we also had separate toilet and shower which was very handy for a 6 bed dorm. Highly recommended!

Disliked: It was noisy at night due to the clubs close by, but they did give you ear plugs at reception!

Liked: Great value for money! For £10, I got a bed in a 6 man room- however, I was the only guest who stayed in it! Result, and massive value for money!

Disliked: Upper floors a bit noisy as next to a nightclub. Could be seen as a positive depending on the purpose of your stay.
