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.
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.
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!
