Such a great hostel and the staff are all so helpful. The station is literally 6 mins walk which made it so easy to get to even when carrying a heavy bag. The hostel has a very relaxed atmosphere, plenty of seating and the dorms are well furnished.The showers and toilets are perfectly adequate- if you want to update anything in the hostel I would say start there :) The kitchen has all you need even though I couldn’t work out how to turn the oven on but that’s down to me 😃 Highly recommend!

The hostel is close to the train station and a short walk away from Cambridge. The beds were comfortable, the hostel quiet, and the room okay. The common room could be refurnished (it looks unclean with the battered furniture). The staff was kind.
