    Hi, I really enjoyed my stay in Cambrodge lodge. It was convenient, and well set up. I enjoyed everything about it, except for our room. I had reserved a room with two single beds but was very disappointed with what I was given I got a double bunk and a double bed which had a notice instructing us not to sleep in it. I am planning to stay in Cambridge lodge next time I'm in Sydney. I would appreciate forewarning if you can't if you can't provide the accommodation I request. Lorraine

    Nice hostel - in a quiet part of the Inner West, really convenient to the train station. It's 20-25mins to a Woolies/Coles, but there's an IGA 5mins away. Facilities are basic, but totally fine for a budget hostel, kitchen was large and clean, there's a nice outdoor eating area, and the mini-fridge in my room was a nice bonus. Worst thing is the lack of A/C in summer - be prepared to be a bit sweaty :)

    The place have a very chilled and homey vibe to it which I liked. A non stressful stay so many not the best if you are looking for party hostel. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. Only a few minutes walk from the train in to the central station. The man at the front desk was very nice but the women who works there is very very rude. Would book again

    The location is so great! I checked in after hours and when I finally received the instructions to get in, it was easy to follow Overall the place does the job, and given the location, the issues are redeemed. But in the section I stayed there was 4 bathrooms, to cater for about 15 rooms of between 2 - 6 people in each. The bathrooms were pretty grotty. The blanket provided was thin and the bed not very comfy. All that to say though, if I returned to Sydney, I'd probs stay again - location.

    Idk much about nothing but this is good value for money. Not a place you can get your drink on and get rowdy as I found out pretty quick. Very confusing when checking in, would have been nice to see people working at a front desk to help rather than over the phone. Private room room was nice for the price.
