Very clean rooms and helpful staff. Breakfast was good and appropriate for the price. The pizzas in the evening could have been better though! It took only 10-15 minutes to reach the center of Cambridge by foot. Parking during the week might be a problem but we stayed only for a Sunday when parking was free.

I had a great stay at YHA Cambridge. The hostel was very comfortable, clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. It's in a great location only a few minutes from the station and into the city. Food was tasty and the self catering areas were nice and modern and kept in very good condition. Overall I think it's... More

A short walk from the station and a brand brief stroll from the center. The staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities of a high standard. The food was very good as well. I would definitely stay again. My only criticism is that there were no hooks or anything to hang clothes on in our room (private double).

We received a very welcome reception at this well designed and conveniently placed YHA. Recently refurbished everything was spot on and the cafe bar feel worked well for an evening snack and drink around beautiful wooden tables. In a private room for five we had a very comfortable quiet nights sleep. Thanks.

I stayed at this hostel during my stay in Cambridge. I chose this place as its location is very conveniently located close to Cambridge train station. So, if I want to travel to other towns, especially London, I just need to walk for less than 5 minutes to the station and off I go :) It is also walking distance... More

I stayed in three different hostels in the UK and this one must be the best one. The hostel is very comfortable, especially the beds too. It is well-designed, spacious and very tidy. The shower rooms and toilets are just nothing but clean, large and tidy! I was staying in a 6-female dormitory for two nights. The room was spacious... More

Well, the hostel is not somehow special, but the overall is really good. I really encourage everybody to have breakfast which includes traditional British cuisine. However, Internet connection is available for members of YHA hostels only unless you pay. Not convenient shower, little place for your stuff. These are just minor disadvantages, everything else is good!

We stayed 2 nights in early October and it exceeded expectations. We had a very small but spotlessly clean private en suite room with good storage. Beds slightly narrow but comfortable. Lovely public areas, superb ktichen, even with salt pepper and spices. Staff patient friendly and helpful, good recommendations of things to do. Great security. Only downside was that wifi... More
