Look, it's not 4 star but for $65 I had a single room which was clean and comfy. There was no noise to disturb me. It was right near all shops and food outlets. Reception was friendly and helpful. All fine for the price.

I needed to be near Courtenay Place and The Cambridge Hotel made it so convenient for me as it was just around the corner. I didn't need a huge room as was only sleeping there at night so the accommodation was perfectly adequate. I would highly recommend the Cambridge for short term stays in a convenient central Wellington location.

I had a wonderful stay at the Cambridge. The staff is very friendly and helpful and it is a great location. Its proximity to Courtenay Place and Cuba Street is awesome and it provides easy access to buses taking you further into the city.

I stayed in a Double Ensuite Room. It was small, but that's to be expected in a hotel of its age, but it was clean. The hotel is in a good location, right around the corner from Courtenay Place, and in easy walking distance from most of Wellingtons hot spots and attractions. We were only there for two nights and... More

The room was small but fine, clean and had a nice view of Queen Victoria. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the backpackers and hotel guests combined, it was fun. Lovely, friendly and helpful cleaning staff!

I stayed here for a night in a private room. It's very conveniently located and fairly cheap for a private room. The hotel and rooms itself are a bit old, so it feels slightly dingy, although the bed and sheets were clean, which is the most important. The bathroom is shared and down the hall. Clean but a bit inconvenient.... More

The Cambridge is slightly confusing. It's half hotel/half backpacker hostel and almost all people there are long term guests. However, Wellington hostels seem to compete on who can offer the worst service and accommodation so this one seems to be the best option by far. Pros: Good bar. Nice fast food. Reasonable food prices and cheap drinks for the backpacker... More

Four stars for character, comfort and location. A bit like a back-packers downstairs. We had a double with bathroom with big windows overlooking the lane - with dump bins! So at an early hour there was bang, crash at our window. Still, that's what happens in the city. Food was in the bar and was cheap and very adequate. WiFi... More

As I have been in Wellington quite a while i've been able to try both the dorm and the hotel rooms in the Cambridge Hotel. Firstly the backpackers tucked away on the ground level of the Hotel is the cosy backpackers corner, the dorms are roomy and very well cleaned same goes for the bathrooms. I have to say that...
