Very helpfull staff. great they have plugs beside the bed and reading lamps. Very clean and good facilities, except the fac the light in the toilet is operated on a movement sensor, which means you have to wave your arm while on the toilet. That was the only minor negative thing.

In the beginning I thought it was quite expense if you compere it with hostels in London, but the price was good for the facilities of the hostel

It is a good hotel, but unfortunately I found very noisy people in my room. One day, 2 guys came in at 3 in the morning, shouting and swearing. They went on for 1h at least. Another time, one guy kept all of us awake because of his snoring. Possibly, dividing snoring people from not snoring ones would be more effective than dividing between males and females!

We are two travellers going around the UK to visit nice cities and Cambridge is definitely one. The Hostel is really nice! The rooms were very clean and the furniture was new/kind of luxurious. I had a really nice night sleep on my bed. The staff is very friendly and you feel home right away. The breakfast was the only disappointing part of our stay. For £5 we expected a little bit more. The juice tasted not very nice and the coffee wasn't really good either.

Very nice place and the staff is friendly. They do not have Wi-Fi in the rooms. I highly recommend. The breakfast is not included but is £5 very complete.

Good value for money. Cramped environment. Difficult to sleep with others snoring and coming in at all hours. YHA charges for extras including Internet and padlock which should both be free in this day and age.

We came for one night, my friends aren't used to staying in hostels and we did want an en suite but for some reason I didn't book. With this hostel- it didn't matter! 4 toilets on our floor, private shower rooms which really worked out better. The staff were lovely and helpful too, taking out photo and putting up with our crazy halloween costumes. I would definitely stay again.

Nice hostel with spacious rooms and the comfiest bunk bed I've ever slept in. Also, every bunk bed has its own light and plus socket, and we had a room with a sink which is very handy. Location is average, 20 minutes to town centre. Bathrooms and dorms were very clean. Downsides: 5GBP for Wi-Fi? Come on! The staff was not too friendly and had slight problems with our payment (although we just wanted to split the total amount, not a big deal normally). I'd still recommend it!

Staff was friendly. You need to walk a bit to get to the city centre, but it's not too bad. It's a bit price for a hostel, but Cambridge is in general a pricey area. Common room and bedroom were nice. Would stay here again.

Nicely renovated hostel with super friendly staff. Very close to the train station; walk to the old city is nice, but busses are ample if you want to save your feet. The dorms are maximum 6 people and provide lockers (bring your own lock!) in the dorms. Minor point was the relatively large number of people sharing one bathroom and one shower. Also I found the wifi pretty expensive for non-members. Overall it was a great stay in the hostel in a very enjoyable city.
