    Stuff was very friendly, they let us store our luggage till 10 P.M.! Clean.

    Rooms are rather small, old tap system is not very convenient, furniture is old, we couldn't close the window in our room. But still the good value for money!

    Rooms were quite small but clean and ok. Breakfast was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is ok.

    Quite noisy hotel.

    It is near the railway station. The position is superb.

    If you are not lucky enough, you will meet the noisy roommates. Then you can't sleep well.

    It's the only hostel in Cambridge, and you get the same as in most other hostels. Our room got plenty of light, and we got a fairly good breakfast for 5 pounds. Two bed rooms, which means more privacy and comfort.

    The beds were quite narrow - but not uncomfortable. We were a couple and would have liked to put the beds together in our 2 bed room, but we got a bunk bed so bear in mind that is what "twin room" means.

    It is close to the station and the town. It is cheap

    The self catering kitchen we did not like the chairs attatched to the floor.

    Efficient, friendly staff.

    Very noisy firedoors throughout the night. Could steps be taken to reduce the noise when the doors swing shut ?

  • Single
    7.4

    Very helpful staff, filling breakfast for only £4.95. 10 to 15 minutes walk to city centre.

    Bathroom/shower facilities reminded me of some campsite facilities - very basic, don't forget to take your own towel and toiletries. During peak times the water dried up in the bedroom washbasin.

    I liked its restaurant.

    I didn't like its toilet.

  • Single
    7.4

    The facilities were quite good given the context.

    The breakfast was basically good. But there were no whole grain options. That is a serious oversight. If it is not possible to do scrambled eggs there could at least be boiled ones.

    the staff are nice and the rooms are clean

    ive stayed here a number of times when visiting cambridge but only because there are no other hostel options. the place is over priced for basic services and wifi and breakfast you pay extra for. all other hostels ive stayed in that arent yha have free breakfast, sometimes free wifi or computers and they are always cheaper with more character. every time i have stayed here numerous toilets and showers are out of order and they put the heating on in the middle of the night, which is extremely uncomfortable if you get a bunk by a radiator

    Very friendly staff, nice bedrooms, very good breakfast, bathroom facilities ok. 5 minute walk from the railway station, city center also easy to reach by foot. Very nice Hostel!

    It's a Hostel so don't expect superclean deluxe bathrooms and beds. But for a Hostel they are good.

  • Single

    The fact that there is a cafe, a self-catering kitchen and a luggage room made my stay much more comfortable. The staff mostly pleasant and the beds were comfy. Baguettes recommended.

    1. During peak hours 8am-10am, there is no hot water in the showers! 2. Dormitories have only 1-2 electrical sockets which is inconvenient for the many lodgers in a room. Each bed should ideally have their own socket attached to some panel on the bed. 3. One staff in particular was extremely rude at all times to almost everyone I knew. She acted like a warden and treated everyone as if they were school kids. 4. Morning breakfast should be economical. The only choice at present is to buy a whole $4.95 breakfast buffet. One should be able to just pay for a bowl of cereals. 5. WI-FI SHOULD BE FREE!!! And if not it should be accessible throughout the building, not just the ground floor!

    Secure, well run and pleasant. The location is brilliant and the price great too! Nice lights at the end of the bed too.
