YHA Liverpool is right at the heart of everything Liverpool has to offer. This Youth Hostel is suitable for families, backpackers, groups and anyone looking for a budget city break. The Youth Hostel is just a five minute walk from the historic Albert Docks which is part of the Liverpool Waterfront – a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site with world-class attractions like The Beatles Story and Liverpool Wheel.

We’re located in the Baltic Triangle. Rather than heading north to the city centre and Liverpool One, head south and you’ll stumble across fabulous bars such as the Camp and Furnace, Baltic Social, and the Liverpool Gin Garden.

The Tate, the International Slavery Museum, Maritime Museum and Museum of Liverpool are about 10 minutes walk from the Youth Hostel, so there is plenty to do in this city of culture. Don’t miss out on the ferry across the Mersey – the terminal is just a 15 minute walk away. Close to city centre shopping, live music venues, clubs and bars, including the famous Cavern Club, YHA Liverpool is the perfect location for a budget weekend break. 

FREE WI-FI available in communal areas for guests!

This 156 bed Youth Hostel has rooms in the following layout:

1 x 2 bed en-suite, 5 x 3 bed en-suite (all have double beds), 4 x 4 bed en-suite (two are disabled access and the other two are with double beds), 1 x 5 bed en-suite, 17 x 6 bed en-suite, and 2 x 8 bed (not en-suite, but shared bathroom along corridor).

Grounds: excellent green space for children to play in. Adults can sit and relax with the odd beer or three.

The Youth Hostel is safe and secure and locked every night at 11pm. Access by buzzer only for residents between 11pm and 6am. There is also a games room, TV room and a thriving bar and reception area to hang out in - settle down and make some new friends. We've added ambience to our social spaces by changing our flooring, furniture and lighting so our bar is now the perfect place to hang out before a night out in Liverpool. We also have a meeting room for up to 15 people.

The length of our walking guides is given in miles and rounded to the nearest full mile (whole number) for simplicity. For short walks (of less than 2 miles) or walks that have a length that ends in .5, a more accurate walk length may be given in the first section of the walk introduction. For example, the Length in the header may be listed as 6 miles, and the introduction may confirm that the exact length of the walk is 5.5 miles. The walk length is calculated from the GPS file that was created by the walk author GPS tracking the walk whilst walking, using the iFootpath App GPS Tracker, meaning it is very accurate. Our bespoke tracker is particularly detailed and plots a walkers position about every 10 seconds. The tracker is calibrated to match two other reputable map and walking sources, Ordnance Survey and Nike. As with all standardised walk and map lengths, the distance does not take account of hills and slopes, just the distance you would measure using a piece of string on a flat map version of the terrain, so hilly walks will feel longer than stated. If you track the route using another GPS App or Tracker App or Fitness Device, you can expect the distance you record to be different due to different calibrations. This is particularly true of those Apps and devices that count your motion and steps – these can only guess the distance you have travelled with each step and so are much less accurate.

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult the terrain is that you will encounter along the way. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. It takes into account things like hills, path surfaces and obstacles (like stiles, gates, steps and rock scrambles). An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 Boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 Boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles that require scrambling with your hands. Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.

NOTE: Do be aware that the level of stamina required for any walk will vary depending on both the walk length and the difficulty grade - you should only walk within your limits.
