I was visiting Cambridge for the night to visit the Beer Festival and we both just needed somewhere to crash and this was ideal. 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

Got the last bed in the hostel following a cancellation in September 2014. Externally looks like a trendy bar rather than a youth hostel. Travelling solo got a single bunk in shared dorm room. Good keycard security for internal doors. Beds made up on arrival. Had excellent meal with a couple of beers in very pleasant bar/dining room. Free wifi... More

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.
