Hostel Cambridge YHA Reviews

The only hostel in the town

there was only one chair and no wardrobes in 3-person room. 2 people have to share a double bed as well.


The worst hostel on my eurotrip

While the staff is nice, the people who stayed here were very mixed. I thought this was a youth hostel, but most of the people were much older. The hostel is old and a little dirty. The rooms themselves are old and there is little to no ventilation. The bunk beds creak and shake with every minuscule movement. And the roommates were the most unsocial, unfriendly people I have met in europe.


Enjoyed my stay

I was there Christmas of '95, and stayed for about a month. The rooms and facilities were clean and the staff was excellent. The kitchen had all you needed to cook (it was self-serve then), and the furnishings were more than adequate. It is not a five-star hotel, but provided an excellent base from which to reconnoiter Cambridge.

Ok but not great by any means

I was surprised to read the "exclusive review." The lounge is large and comfortable, and there's a second lounge. There is no pool table (as of June 2008). Breakfast now comes with each night's stay. Our room was unclean with dirt on the floor. It had an en-suite, which needed an overhaul, but was tolerable. Dining area was quite clean but the cutlery was unclean and the glasses were filthy! There were no lockers for valuables. School/social groups were loud and annoying. The saving grace -- an excellent and very helpful chef who obviously enjoys what he does. I wouldn't stay here again.


I stayed here March of 2004 and met some great people (shout out to my friends from Trinadad and New Zealand!). We cooked for five different nationalities one night in the kitchen. The hostel itself was a little tired but clean with a good breakfast in the morning (get there early though!). I had some trouble finding it from the bus stop, but it wasn't a bad walk and located a reasonable distance from the sites. Good times -- nice city. Try a punt down the Cam!


This youth hostel is worse than poor -- I have never been to a dirtier and more disgusting place in my entire life. The staff was unfriendly -- it was the highlight of the day to be able to leave the hostel every morning.


This hostel has friendly and helpfull staff. The bedroom was clean as so were the showers and toilets. The breakfast copious and good. I had a very pleasant stay and I recommend it!


It was okay! And the staff were very helpful! But at mealtimes the place was very full, and sometimes you didn't get any food if you were the last to come!
