Mostly good but WiFi was poor, slow and kept dropping out. If that could be fixed the hostel would get much better ratings. Kitsch was good once we mastered the turning on of Stive/ovens.


This is one of the nicest, cleanest, brightest and accessible hostels I've ever had the pleasure to stay in!

It is a great hostel and we love it so much!!


I had a great stay at YHA Cambridge. A typical YHA hostel; everything was clean and tidy. The hostel is within walking distance of the train station and the city centre but not directly in the middle of town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I have nothing negative to say about this hostel; I had a good experience and would definitely stay here again.


Hostel nice and clean, except for one night where the kitchen was closed because of other guests not washing up. Stayed in a private which cost £60 for 2 people per night, but then it is Cambridge. Living room could have done with more tables suitable for laptops as cafe was very noisy. Location perfect as it's near the station.


Remind Visitors to bring a towel, but can hire one.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were top furnished with even a sink in the dorm rooms with shared facilities, very comfortable bed, lockers in the room available (bring your own lock). The common area was cosy and very stylish (a lot of nice pictures and other interesting stuff on the walls), good atmosphere to sit and chat, read or have a drink, breakfast available and very good. The hostel is close to the main station. We really enjoyed our stay there!!!


Everything was really great! So close to the train, and a short walk to city centre. The showers don't drain incredibly fast so even with a quick shower you're left standing in the dirty water. Otherwise everything was great


The room was a little small but it was very clean so we didn't really mind. The breakfast was good. The only inconvenience we had was related to the lockers in the luggage room. At some point the demand for one-pound coins was higher than the supply :-)


I like alot of things about this hostel i just did not like the fact that i had so much trouble with the wifi, they gave me the wrong network name and then u could only use the wifi in the lounge and dining room.


A very nice and helpful staff! :-)


Nice and standard YHA hostel. Bedside light and power supply. Wifi confined to ground floor.


It is amazing place! I will go back again for sure! The whole building is quiet new, and room is clean, stuffs are fresh, everything is nearly perfect! It is closed the train station, but a little be far from the city center( 20 mins by walk). Highly recommend!


Very nice place to sleep. The staff was very helpful and willing to solve any problem.


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.
