YHA Cambridge, Cambridge, England
6.6
2nd Jun 2013

YHA is an OK youth hostel near train station. Rooms are clean and cosy, but do not have enough outlets. Facilities mostly good, nice living/TV rooms, cafeteria, vending machines, but self-catering kitchen only mediocre. Can be noisy and annoying if school classes are staying there. Room rates are good considering the area, but do NOT include anything, so be aware of EXTRA COSTS for WiFi (5BP/day), breakfast (6BP), lockers (2or3BP per one-time use), Towel rent (2BP+deposit)etc. Adds up.

Solar Chacara Hostel, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A beautiful hostel+guest house in a house of a family of amazing people. Private atmosphere. Awesome loft-style common space and overwhelming view. caution: House is outside of Leblon, slightly uphill and close to the favela Vidigal, so you should follow some basic safety rules!. The house is close to a dream-beach, you can also walk to Vidigal or Leblon, frequent buses to Copacabana or city. If u look for nightlife and shopping: wrong address. If u want to relax, this is your place!

Beautiful Hostel in good city center location (not if you want beach). Good breakfast, there is WiFi,TV and PC. Caution: bring a towel. No AC in room. No laundry (must have it done in an outside center-expensive!).Can be noisy. However:It was what I needed,I liked it and can totally recommend.

Posada San Francisco, San Juan, Puerto Rico

Posada SF is a lovely hostel in an old building in the heart of Old San Juan. The location is hence its best feature, plus they have a supe nice common space and a beautiful balcony view. Common space was surprisingly clean. Howerver, the dorms are only mediocre, with few space and zero atmosphere. There are way too few bathrooms for the amount of people there. Reception service is not overwhelming, lockout at night will be charged 80 bucks.I recommend getting your own room,not the dorms.

I wonder if you were able to visit other hostels in Puerto Rico? Dorms are simple as advertise; but clean; when full to capacity There are 20 guest for 5 bathrooms; so it is 4 guest aprox per bathroom and not everyone will be in need of them at the same time; So I am not sure why your perspective is that there are not enough bathrooms? We have no curfew; you will have your own key to go in and out as you please but if you loose it its $20; now if you loose it from 9pm - 6am ( when we have to wake up- to open and make you a new key; you will have the "unnecesary wake up fee of $85) why? because we are a family place and do not have 24hour staff; in order to keep prices down. We dont want to charge that fee ; we just want you not to loose your key at this time and us have to wake up. You can imagine why this became a rule; It was happening every night; since the wake up fee we have not had any of these calls.

Caution:location a bit off, beach is bikeable,probably also walkable but unsure if safe after dark.
