Great hotel, looked really good, clean and felt very comfortably. It is located nearby the railway- and bus station and with a short walk you are in the centre of Cambridge. The staff was really friendly and were doing their best to make you feel like being at home. The room and facilities were tidy, comfortable and clean. Also liked... More

I recently stayed at the Youth Hostel with two small children. The hostel is well set up for kids, with a play area outside and self-catering kitchen, and the set-up of the rooms means that even with large groups of people the rooms themselves are quiet and isolated. Everything about the place was cheery and clean. Excellent service from the... More

I recently stayed here for a couple of nights with friends whilst visiting Cambridge. We shared a 4 bunk room which was clean and comfortable with a lovely hot shower. Very near to the railway station and a short walk to the centre of Cambridge. Definately would return and recommend.

This newly refurbished youth hostel is very clean, warm, and has welcoming staff. Rooms are comfortable and en-suites are excellent. Within easy walking distance of railway station and only a little bit further to town centre. Menu is not as good as it might be, but I understand this is on direction from head office, so no reflection on the... More

It was just perfect to stay in this hotel! Staffs were lovely, Very near to the railway station, decorated very well, comfy beds and no problem using shower room. Rooms are a little bit small, but it didn't bother me at all. Highly recommended.

Great location near ti the rail station in quiet residential street with good access to the city centre. Recently refurbished in line with other popular YHA's means well thought out room suitable for short stays with families or close friends. We had an en suite room which was a bit of a treat. Room was pretty hot - perhaps too... More

Thank you for your review. I am glad that you have enjoyed your stay despite the room being hot. We are currently in talks to have more (and less fiddly!) bike lockers installed so that we can provide this service to all our guests without the need to book ahead.

I'm a 24 male staying in Cambridge on and off over 5 weeks. Did not come to the YHA before its refurb, but they have done an amazing job. It has a very welcoming feel to it. Rooms, toilets and showers are clean and fresh. Drinks are very reasonably priced, cheaper than a lot of pubs. Same for the food,... More

I stayed here for one night, and I must say I really enjoyed my stay! The room (I was in room 002) was very spacious and very clean, as all of the premises.

I won a competition with the local airport at very short notice, and after a coach ride I arrived in Cambridge. I went straight to this hostel and without given notice of my arrival. I was greeted very friendly, explained their policies and I was in bed. Super convenient and fairly priced. Even though I was there for a short... More

When the revamp is finished and the snagging jobs are sorted this will be an excellent hostel. Everything is brand new. The power showers are a bonus after a sweaty bike ride. The food is good value and there are a few bike racks to keep your bike safe. (Maybe best to book one in good weather...I was lucky to... More

Thank you for your review. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay at YHA Cambridge and hope to see you again. We're currently working on installing more bike lockers as well as a bike rack in case many cyclists are staying on the same day, so hopefully there won't be any need to pre-book these. More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stay at the newly refurbished Cambridge Youth Hostel and spend time in the heart of this lively, historic university town on a cheap city break. Just around the corner from the railway station and a 15 minute walk from the city centre, accommodation at this backpackers' hostel gives you easy access to the colleges, museums and art galleries that have helped make Cambridge famous. Hire a punt, explore the ancient streets and enjoy the city's cycle-friendly routes. YHA Cambridge makes an excellent base for exploring everything that the city is famous for. We offer dormitory accomodation as well as private rooms. As YHA is a Childrens' Charity, if families book directly with us, they get special, lower, family room rates. The brand new Scholars bar and restaurant has a relaxed, vintage feel with its distressed wooden tables and leather chairs - a perfect place to catch up with friends over drinks and nibbles. Delicious meals and bar snacks are available at this licensed hostel. ... more   less
