Warm and friendly, feels like a student cafe with attached bedrooms. Room clean and bright but beware the shower as the hot and cold dial appear to work in reverse. Well situated to the train station but a bit of a hike into town. Hostel good for kids as they can run around as it is spacious. Unsure of Cambridge... More

We stayed in a private ensuite room in March and also at Christmas, while visiting family. The hostel is really friendly, clean and a really good location in central Cambridge and near the station. Excellent value and far better than many 3 star hotels we have stayed in, in the past.

We went to a concert at the Corn Exchange and overnighted at this refurbished YHA, sharing an en suite room with a friend. Staff are very friendly and helpful and we were checked in quickly.Small but very adequate room with an excellent shower facing the road which was sometimes noisy with traffic during the night. Excellent communal facilities down stairs... More

Stayed in a dorm. Place is clean, staff are nice, friendly and accommodating, they let me switch rooms to avoid some heavy snorers. No wifi in rooms, kitchen very crowded, but it's cheap for Cambridge and in the middle of town.

We stayed as a group of 6 in a private room. The staff were great at checking us all in as we arrived and issuing enough keys and internet codes. The room itself was spotless. The refurbishment is thoughtful with individual lights, plugs and little shelves for each bunk. En suite was handy and well kept. We also had the... More

We visited Cambridge after an energetic weekend in London and the youth hostel was perfect. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the hostel was very clean and tidy and breakfast in the morning was nicely set up and tasted great. I would definitely recommend the place to anyone, even if hostels aren't really your scene.

The hostel was pretty basic, but I loved how clean the place was. The showers were spacious too. Staff was helpful and friendly as well. The lady at the counter gave us a map during check in and recommended some places to visit, including the colleges with free entry (Magdalene and Pembroke, if I recall correctly). Would definitely recommend for... More

The price was a bit high for a hostel (£60 for 2 beds in a private room with common bathroom) and be prepared to pay extra for towels, breakfast, lockers. But the staff is really nice, they lend you what you need, the coffee area is lovely and the coffee itself is tasty and it feels very safe and (that... More
