Property Description

The Cambridge Hotel is a newly restored heritage building. It is immensely popular for its value accommodation in the capital city. The fantastic central location and carefully restored decor, combined with hard-to-match prices, has made The Cambridge Hotel the first choice for many travellers and returning guests.

Accommodation options to suit you & your budget.

The backpackers section of the hotel sets a new standard in backpacker accommodation and enables guests to backpack in style. The boutique experience has amazed guests with its luxury feel. There are 52 dorm beds, ranging from 4-8 bedded dorms, all equipped with linen and heating.

The hotel reception is operated 24 hours a day.

The Cambridge is a Wellington icon. We say dont judge the Cambridge as the Cambridge will never judge you. Everyone is welcome!

    Pretty good place. Good mix of people. Kitchen stuff is pretty outdated though and hardly any space for food. Bar is loud fri and Saturday nights, unless you're here to party, I'd suggest go somewhere else for a weekend. Otherwise a decent place

    Very Good

    18 Apr 2018
    Stayed in 4 bed dorm then moved to single room- dorms were nicer. Linen and rooms generally clean. Breakfast v good. Kitchen ok but a bit dirty. No lockers. Kept up until 3am by drunk guests fighting and shouting- police involved and I had to make a statement. Staff were apologetic and offered me breakfast vouchers, although could only use 1 of 3 as they gave me them too late to use the morning after, and I left before breakfast was served on final day.

    Kitchen no very tidy and not a lot cutlery, etc. Good location though not the typical hostel atmosphere. Alright for a couple of nights if you spent your day not in the hostel

    very smelly rooms, cramped with people staying longterm and spreading out. very noisy, people not staying at the hostel in the corridors. kitchen was not in a condition to be used. only 'perks': could already check in at 11:30 am and enough showers and toilets.
