The fantastic central location and carefully restored decor, combined with hard-to-match prices, has made The Cambridge Hotel the first choice for many travellers and returning guests.

    On arrival the staff were friendly but we were not given much info about where our dorm was located or other facilities. The dorm room smelt of stale smoke, the bedding smelt dirty, i was on the bottom bunk and there was chewing gum and writing above me under the top bunk, there was a door missing on one of the toilets, no lamps or lockers for safe keeping in the dorm rooms, the kitchen was dirty, there were no windows in our dorm. Had to rent plates and cutlery. I would not stay here again!!!
