The Cambridge Hotel Reviews


Since its grand opening the 'Backpacker Wing' has seen a lot of faces, and set a new standard in backpacker accommodation. The boutique experience has amazed guests with its luxury feel. Warm duvets are provided with every comfortable bunk bed, and both gas and electric heating keep the worst of the winter at bay. Steaming hot showers soothe the spirit in a fully tiled bathroom that has become a talking point for its opulence.

Quickly taking over as our most talked about feature though, are our bargain meals. You can add to your experience by joining in at the Bar and we have a free BBQ night every Wednesday.

The BBQ is huge and is inside our bistro bar so there is no stopping for the weather. The Cambridge Bar boasts the best value drinks in the central city, with extra special deals for backpackers.

All this at backpacker prices, starting at $19 per night. There are eight bedrooms, three with four beds, others with six or eight, totalling a comfortable 50 beds. So book as soon as your travel plans are finalised and don't miss out on staying at one of Wellington's most talked about hostels.
