Had trouble with my booking from the start. I chose my room configuration online when i booked, and then had to ring and confirm it, only to receive another phone call on the morning of our arrival. The front desk staff were really helpful and friendly. The room looked good enough when we arrived, but a lot of little maintenance... More

The reception is open 24h so no worries about arriving in the middle of the night as I did. The single room I stayed in was clean and had a TV, fridge, kettle and sink provided; however the mugs and drinks were not replenished when the towels and sheets were replaced. I would recommend the Cambridge for anyone backpacking who... More

Ideal location close to the airport and the centre of town. Comfortable stay with renovated bathroom. Great price for the accommodation we had, and loved the pub underneath. Very handy if you don't want to go far.

We stayed in a dorm room with 4 other people. The beds were good and the shared bathroom very spacious and clean. The Cambridge is a classic hotel, so the reception was open 24h and very friendly. They warn about the noisy bar downstairs of which we actually couldn't hear anything in our first floor dorm room.

Noisy on the weekends, should provide earplugs for free instead of charging $2. Other than than that, great location and clean. Rooms compact and good atmosphere in bar. Parking close by and secure. Would stay again.

I stayed at this hostel for one week and it was okay... It's located on the ground floor of a hotel with pub. I was in the last room on the right and the room was dark with a tiny window and a bit cold. The doors are very heavy and it makes a lot of noise if people are... More

This is one of the most unique hostels I've ever been to; in fact it doesn't even quality as a hostel it's more of a hotel!!! The showers were better than some 5 star hotels I've stayed at. Such a modern / classy look. Kitchen / eating area was small but functional and reception were helpful and friendly.

The accommodation side of this hotel was a nice surprise. The en-suite was a little tight, however for a hundred bucks in this location - it was value for money. We went to the rugby and partied in Courtney place so this was such a handy place to stay. One of the rooms didn't have the beds split for my... More

I have been staying at the Cambridge Hotel, Wellington for over 7 years, during the week, going home at the weekends. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. Rates are great for long-termers like myself and the hotel try to make your favourite room available each week. There are backpacker dorms available as well with kitchen facilities. The bar... More
