The hostel is so neat and perfect, that you feel you are actually in a hotel ! The staff is really friendly and helpful. The kitchen is very spacious (4 sinks, 4 stoves, 2 fridges) and there is a cafe where you can buy food if you prefer (which is very trendy by the way). There are a lot of... More

Location wise, it was in a quiet neighborhood, and a 15-20 minute walk from the downtown area, colleges, and canal. Because of this I think the rate was a little too much. However, the bathrooms down the hall and in the common area were extremely clean and well maintained. The beds were comfortable. Rooms were small, and the 6 bed... More

I liked the daily tips on blackboard.Our twin room was tiny,though good to have a sink in it.kitchen could have more/ better utensils and putting up an extractor fan in the kitchen whilst having breakfast wasn't ideal, would have been better if they had waited.most of the staff friendly. Paint work in stairways could be... More

Very nice hostel near the train station in a quiet residential district, whence you can easily reach the city centre in 20 min by foot. The structure is new and clean, beds are comfortable and endowed of a small light and a useful socket. One of my best stay in hostels. The only negative issue is that the WiFi is... More

Although the location not really close to city center (need to walk for 15mnts), but it really close to the train station. The hostel is so clean as well as the bathroom and the toilet. The room itself, each bed has their own locker, as well as the power plug apart from the plug on the wall, so its more... More

The check in was very quick and friendly , the room was small but clean and modern with a sink in it and a shared toilet and shower in the corridor outside the room. Breakfast was... More

It's only a five minute walk to the rail station, which is nice. But the walk into town is a bit longer, if you're wanting to see some of the city centre. Value was ok, not the greatest for a hostel. Room was clean and cozy, I believe they had just completed a large renovation. Staff was good. The kitchen... More

This is the cheapest place we could find in Cambridge for our stay. The staff were very welcoming and started helping out by helping us park our car. We had a great breakfast here at good value. Our room (#4) was right on the ground floor and was very basic, but the downside was the noise from the street. Ear... More
