Our stay has been amazing. Thank you very much! After booking out, we had to go to London for a few hours before our trip back and asked the YHA near to the Kings cross station to use their luggage room, which they let us. Thanks to you, we could enjoy a last walk freely. Thank you, hope to stay with you soon.
Only breakfast is not that brilliant,not much choice if you don`t like English breakfast.
The hostel has a great kitchen, but you can't use it if you checked out (every single hostel I stayed let me use it despite the check out). It has a great secury sistem, all doors have keys (magnetic), and its located at 10' walk from Cambridge centre (Colleges).
Fabulous hostel! Kind employees, comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast at a reasonable cost, nice bathrooms and showers, and excellent location. The directions to the hostel, however, are only helpful for people who are driving their own vehicles or who have Smartphones. Please add directions to the hostel from both the nearby train station and the not quite as close long-distance bus stops. I went a really needlessly round-about way to get to the hostel. Everything else was perfect.
one locker less than the no. of beds

Fantastic hostel, though only stayed one night. Very clean and the staff were beyond friendly and helpful!
Friendly and helpful staff, making sure guests are happy with their stay. Amazing state of rooms and quite convenient bed lamp with charging station (you won't wake up everyone when you're coming at night, want to read,etc.). It's not in the center but it's 20 minute walk through nice area and nearest main street is full of coffee shops, cafes,etc.
Great rooms, beds and bedding v. clean and comfortable plus well made so no irritating squeaking as the neighbour settles in. Pleasantly surprised to have a small shelf with a power socket and light as part of the bunk- so good for charging phones overnight close to you. Kitchen clean and well stocked with all basics and ablution area immaculate- great hot/pressure shower!
This YHA is surely worth the price, as it is 7 minutes' walk from the rail station. Keycard provided means you can access the rooms at any time. The kitchen area has everything one need. Ian is extremely helpful in explaining everything. The only letdown is a female staff on the handling of our luggage storage. We put in £3 as instructed, but the machine did not work. That staff kept trying to blame us in the faulty machine (when it simply didn't work [2nd right on top row). Really unhelpful.
A large group of young school children ran wild throughout the hostel and the staff refused to intervene until 11pm
Best hostel Ever! Brandnew, clean and very close to the main places to visit! Is for all the ages, there were families with kids and oldies! Highly recommend
Everything was fantastic. The staff were so so nice (I remember Nigel haha he was so nice, patient and cute.) Everything was tidy and prepared. I really love here. One thing: During our stay, there weas a large group of kids running upstairs and downstairs (partying i suppose) so it was quite noisy even at midnight. Hope you guys are luckier;) I would definitely stay here NEXT TIME!!
The hostel is really nice and clean. You can charge phone on bed and the shower is excellent.
The facilities of your hostel in general are awesome but the showers aren't the the greatest though. One always has to be aware if too much water is accumulated on the ground while showering because the drainage doesn't seem to work efficiently and there is no kind of blockade between the shower and the door so one feels that there is always a risk of leaking water to the outside of the room which would be horrible. I hope a solution can be found and something can be done about this.
one of the best places I have ever been to. it looks better than an average european hostel
Everything is good in this hostel except I don't recommended for solo traveler.
We stayed in a shared dorm. The beds were clean (but a little hard!). Bathrooms were plenty and clean. Breakfast was offered but we did not take this option. The hostel has a kitchen and sitting room, which was cozy and well lit.

I liked everything about staying at the hostel except that noise what some visitors can make. Some people realy have no idea about other being around and respect for others including them-self, they behaved like animals shouting, banging door and their stuff all night and early in the morning. Earplugs needed! :) Everything else was realy good and well organized.
I in 4 female dorm and everything was nice except the WIFI that could not reach out my room.
