Epsteins Guesthouse officially opened to the public in October 2003 . Yes, you've guessed it, everywhere you turn in this magnificent house you are reminded of the fab four - The Beatles, and of course Brian Epstein. A copy of the public record and other evidence is on display within the house.
Apart from the famous décor, Epsteins comprises of three stories with nine guest rooms, each with it's own En Suite facilities.
The number of beds available varies from room to room - the total capacity is 25. All rooms are en-suite with tea/coffee making facilities.
On the ground floor the entrance hall leads into the lounge, where there is a large screen T.V, comfortable seating and dining facilities. The bar is fully licensed and is made available to our guests throughout the day & night. The French doors lead directly onto the patio and huge garden.
The former home of legendary Beatles manager Brian Epstein is situated in the Anfield district of Liverpool, within a stones throw of Liverpool Football Club's Anfield Stadium and a 5 minute walk from Goodison Park, home of Everton FC.
The location and history of the Guesthouse make it an ideal place to stay when visiting Liverpool for work, tourism and sport.
Please read my comment on that, as I replied to the YouTube video featured by UKHostels ~~
The "Brian Epstein Hostel" (formerly called "Epstein's Guest House" before its recent sale to another owner) is located at 27 Anfield Road, Liverpool and was formerly the home of Brian's GRANDPARENTS ~ Isaac and Dinah.
Brian never actually lived there ~ his parents, Harry and Queenie, were given a house (as a wedding present) approx. a mile away from there, at 197 Queens Drive in Walton, Childwall, Liverpool BEFORE Brian was born, and that's where he grew up.
I'm a bit disappointed that the people who run the Brian Epstein Hostel can get away with this ~ not actually lying, yet subtly deluding the public that this was Brian's family home. No, it was where Isaac and Dinah lived. Harry grew up there, not Brian.
Be that as it may, it seems to be a lovely place to stay, and I've got an LJ friendslister who plans to stay there in May during her trip to Liverpool ~ she will also be visiting London and various parts of Europe. She promises to report back to us.

Thank you for your post, Eppylover. I shortly discovered you had already posted a video in another section of the forum as it is the same building (hostel/guest house) as on the video. I read your comment on the video, as you defined the accuracy of the guest house. I then came back here with the intention of removing my post. As you had explained it more in detail, it gives the public a clearer AND truthful history behind it in relation to Brian Epstein. At least, the public can view a home that is related to the Epstein family, though not Brian. I see what you mean.Thanks again.
