Convenient and good value
A convenient location near the station and a short walk the main sights. A friendly welcome and efficient service. We stayed in a private room for 2 which was quite large with bonus of desk and clean and tidy en-suite with efficient shower. A good budget choice accommodation.

My stay
There was a glass with yellow liquid in my room when I just check in. I feel not very comfortable with that. Although your staff said it’s probably the drink of the clean lady, still.....

Almost Felt Like a Hotel
YHA Cambridge is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. I was in a six-person room, and it was so spacious. The lockers are large. Every bed has a little outlet and reading light station. My room even had a vanity with a sink and lit mirror. The only problem I had was that the Wifi didn't really work well in my room. I do my job remotely, so having reliable Wifi is important. I worked in the common room, which was fine. But better Wifi would have been ideal!

Nice stay in a procedure driven hostel!
YHA is a beautiful property with plush interiors. The staff is very nice just that they are a bit too much process inclined. Close to the train station but a 25 min walk to the city centre. The area around yha offers a few restaurants and a nice pub.

An enjoyable stay at the YHA
We needed to stay to visit family who unfortunately couldnt accommodate us at their house. As typical with yha stays (as we have stayed with yha in other locations) the staff were friendly, very helpful and willing to pretty much bend over backwards to give an excellent customer experience. The rooms were adequate and clean as can be expected with yha. We had a private room and the en-suite was immaculately clean. Comfy memory foam mattresses and clean well presented linen. Less than a 2min walk from the station and a 15min walk to the city centre & tourist attractions. Lovely choice of food at the hotel and portions were huge! Plus speacial offers such as "cuppa & a cake" which were highly used by us. Alternatively the local road 'Mill Road' has a plethora of restaurants to choose from. Local bus connections to everywhere from the station. A much enjoyed stay
