    I visited right before the winter lockdown and they had me stay in my own room. Everything was very clean and staff wore masks. I had my own bathroom in the room. Easy to get to sight-seeing areas around Cambridge.

    We were in a private room, but it was very noisy and we were woken on multiple occasions. There was also a scratching sound in the night that might be a sign of pests. Beds were not very comfortable. The hostel was clean, secure and there were some nice pubs nearby
