Hoax Hostel, Liverpool is the first of this new and exciting hostel brand, which seeks to provide 5 star hostel accommodation in the heart of Liverpool. The quirky design which promotes the ethos of ‘up-cycling’, found and reclaimed objects and furniture, sets it apart from the competitors in this growing sector. Ica has had a leading role in both the design and development of the prototype concept, and the development of the Liverpool hostel.

The existing 6 storey vacant building, sits within the famous Cavern area of the Met Quarter, which really comes to life in the evening with people flowing into the bars and restaurants along Matthew Street.

The redevelopment was a full refurbishment of the existing 6 storeys, and addition of a 7th storey, to provide 274 bed spaces over 50 dorms offering en-suite shower and W/C facilities, hostel reception, and guest facilities including kitchen, dining, and laundry. Due to its prime location it also accommodates ‘Hopskotch’ Street bar and Kitchen and the ‘Hatch’ which is an exclusive underground club, which will accommodate live gigs, stand-up comedy and cinema viewings.
