The Cambridge Hotel was easily the best hostel that we stayed in. We arrived late and the gentleman at the front desk went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything that we needed. The hostel itself is a bit older so not pristine (ie rugs a bit worn, etc) but definitely clean. Our group of 4 was... More

I was in a 4 bed room, i felt very comfortable, there were a tap in the room, which is very convenient. The staff is helpful for anything you need. The only bad point is : you have to rent your plate / cup / fork

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to the South Island. Pros: Friendly and helpful staff Good location Excellent price Cons: No fan/air conditioning in the room. There is a heater however given we went in summer it did get a bit hot and we had to open the windows.

This hotel right on the mark. I stay here on an occasional basis. Rooms are well priced and have everything I needed, although I had a shared bathroom the room was inexpensive. Friendly helpful staff. On the down side there can be a bit of noise in the night, some sort of refrigeration unit I think; but nothing ear-plugs won't... More

Due to its closeness to Courtenay Place restaurants and bars this is well located for eating and drinking. This does mean that there is plenty of street noise from people enjoying themselves. Cambridge terrace can be noisy with traffic sometimes too. However the family room was spacious and the staff were really down to earth and helpful and so we... More

this time in a single room with shared bathroom, and most happy with ALL The Cambridge Hotel offered. Wifi very good, meals were grand, and the daily "specials" are worth considering. Staff were a treat, and will make your stay in Wellington even better. Very close is Mt Victoria, which i walked and enjoyed 360 degree views of the city....take... More

Good value, friendly staff, free Wi-Fi, handy location and a firm bed made this a good choice. It's within a 10 minute walk to Cuba Street's eateries and even closer to Te Papa and the waterfront. There's an in-house restaurant too.

I stayed in a single room with private bathroom. Room and bathroom are both clean. Everyday when I arrive its been cleaned already. Best thing about this hotel is its proximity to CBD and a nice supermarket. Its very close to the venue of my conference, the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand. Staff was very accomodating. I would definitely... More

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Cambridge Hotel on several occasions, both in 2010 and in 2014. First time at the backpackers, now in a hotel room. Things had been updated in the common areas since my last stay, with an addition of ovens in the kitchen, for example. This time, I stayed in a single room with... More
