International Inn Reviews

Modest but comfortable; the staff make you feel at home

Likes -- Friendly staff, good WiFi, good common areas, good kitchen. Dislikes -- No elevator for people with heavy luggage, no hand towels in the bathroom, no big sign out front. I enjoyed my stay here and would gladly come again.

Age 27 | Canada

Very nice and clean, staff were great

I stayed at this hostel in the middle of October of 2009. I made a reservation for two days. After seeing the hostel in person/walking around Liverpool for a couple of hours, i asked to stay two extra days [four days total]. It was just off a main road and it was close to the town centre, but was also didnt have noise off the streets at night. I stayed at fifteen different hostels on my European vacation and i have to say that the staff at the International Inn were some of the nicest and most helpful people that i met on the trip. Even the cleaning staff were friendly and offered advice on where to go. A staff member, who i think was named Roo, was full of great advice of places to walk around. Liverpool itself is a great town to walk around in. It has a lively nightlife [i was there on a weekend]. But it wasnt just a bunch of drunken debauchery [which sadly i found in some British cities]. It simply was full of people enjoying themselves. Do yourself a favor and stay here more than one day. Liverpool is a great town, there's more to it than just the Beatles tours. Overall i had an entirely positive experience at this hostel and i hope to return someday.


Worst ever

I don't want to be mean, but it was the worst hostel I ever stayed in. It was expensive (22 pounds!) with unfriendly people and far away from the city centre. We stayed there one night, were glad to leave because it was dark (with a building site outside our window) and smelly and you felt like being in the underground, there was no light or fresh air. and one toilet for one room, no lockers.


It's surely no seven-star hotel, but neither is the price. Very good location, from where its only walking distance pretty much to anywhere. Friendly stuff and very good social rooms (kitchen with everything, living room with billiard table, TV). Special thanks from free toast and tea. Surprised positively to notice that hostels prefers fair trade trademarks. We highly recommend!

The Liverpool International Inn is very conveniently located -- down a small lane just off busy Hardman Street. It's also just a short stroll away from many of Liverpool's attractions (the Philharmonic is just down the road, as is L.I.P.A) and is about a ten-minute walk from the centre of town.

The hostel is big and spacious -- the lay-out is very well spaced out so despite its size there is a quiet and peaceful atmosphere. The dorm rooms are also generously sized and have a toilet/shower room included. There are no lockers provided but you can give valuables to reception to mind. There is also a washer/dryer (for a small fee) but unfortunately this was out of order. There is an internet cafe next door which charges a reasonable fee per half hour (although in town you can use the internet for free at the main library).

At the end of the long hall of the International Inn is a shared kitchen (free coffee/tea/toast) with cooking facilities, and next door to this is a large common room with a TV, pool table, and table-soccer to keep you entertained. The staff are friendly and helpful, and there reception is staffed twenty-four hours.

The hostel is moderately clean -- the common room and the kitchen see the worst of the mess, and while the bathrooms are tatty and a bit worn-down, they aren't too bad. All in all, the International Inn is a friendly and well located place to stay and good value for money.

Fantastic! Very clean, quiet, plenty of common space (TV room with pool table, etc., and kitchen with free toast, tea and coffee). All rooms had private bathrooms. Very close to center of town (about a five-minute walk), and there are lots of take-away shops and pubs close by.


Excellent hostel. I have stayed in hostels, both YHA and independent, and this knocks the socks off them all. Staff are excellent and friendly (even though Miss Silcock is a Liverpool supporter, but hey, we all have our problems). The hostel is well run and I can't commend it highly enough.

Big Bad Jeff ( the Irishman )/ Everton supporter

Brilliant stay. This place has very friendly and helpful staff, free flowing tea and coffee, pool table, clean and comfortable rooms, no curfew, and it's close enough to the center to stagger home at all hours. It's got good security, new and cheerful decor, and it's generally excellent. Good vibes. Though there was only one pool cue and it was a kid-sized one. But with all the rest of it in there, we weren't too bothered about the pool cue!

Staff is very polite and friendly, and the room I stayed in was great and enough space.


Amazing staff, shout out to Jedd and Jake!


Increble lugar y muy limpio


Common areas were not very clean. Lads came back from night club and started blaring music at 6am. The security told the guys that it was me that was complaining which was really sh*tty as a solo female traveller to be made vulnerable like that. I wouldnt stay there again, based off that. The women at reception were fantastic but the two men I dealt with really let the experience down!


Great place to stay for a visit to Liverpool. Everything was clean, the beds had curtains, and there were a nice set of metal lockers under the beds. Location was a bit of a walk from the city center and the Cavern Quarter/Mathew Street (~15-20 minutes by walking), but very convenient to the nightlife in the Ropewalks. Staff was cheerful and friendly as well. Would consider staying here again on a future visit.


Great spot, will stay again


Super Friendly staff, superb shower in my room! Excellent size as well, the hangers to leave the coats were excellent! Kitchen is very orgabised and enough space in fridges! Staff was lovely, very kind and educated people.

Just didnt feel there's an inviting atmosphere for solo travellers like myself to get along and meet each other.


Excelent, good location and facilites


The hostel had a weird hotel-like atmosphere. Unfortunately my bed sheets and the ensuite bathroom (female dorm) weren't very clean. The kitchen wasn't well equipped. There was no free breakfast, probably due to covid.

However, the hostel was in a good location close to the city centre and some supermarkets.


The accomodation was pretty basic but acceptable.Ive sit in a 6 bed room .

+ :

Room was spacious and hot .

Toilet is regular one but you have everything you might need.Bring towel with you .

Staff communication was good and straightforward.

There was a small table in the room where you might serve some food or keep a laptop.

- :

Mattresses are pretty noisy but I might say comfortables.

Phone sockets were only on one corner as far as I've seen.(hope I'm not wrong).


Fabulous hostel. Brilliant hot showers. Very helpful & friendly staff. Excellent facilities. Ideal location.


Sorry the International backpackers Inn was closed and hostel world was not informed of that. I think it is brilliant to stay there but when can they be open again for poor senior travellers.


Neat quiet place, close to the city center but you can visit other quarters easily.

Good stay for your money. Very friendly and helpful staff! Kitchen with lot of options. Free tea and coffee.


Staffs very friendly, the hostel is located very in downtown, many restaurants, supermarket and pubs just a few meters away. Great valeu for the money !!!


I stayed two nights with a friend. Great location with good security. The best was the staff. They were really friendly. It'd be night that the hostel had a kitchen available abd the staff would guide us when we arrived.


Great hostel. Great staff, great facilities and near to all the major sights. Good value for money and would recommend in the future. A bit quiet but likely due to time of year and COVID


I stayed 2 days , the room was really clean , It was shared bedroom for 4 people however I was alone those days , the staff was kind .


The bedroom with bathroom was clean and respecting the social distancing. The staff were nice, and the localization was super close to the city centre. The downside was the kitchen that every day was full and wasn't clean. The door from the corridor to the kitchen kept banging all the time and our room was the last one before the door, so the noise was kind disturbing, but this can be very punctual. Overall, particularly convenient location and good beds.


Excellent Liverpool City Central Base. Ask the staff about the best public transport ticket to buy that includes the Mersey Ferries.


Currently the best hostel to stay in. Keep it up. Thank You
