Liked: Ostello pulito e con staff estremamente disponibile 24h/24h per ogni evenienza. Il parcheggio nella via dell'ostello è gratuito solamente di notte ma vicino c'è la stazione ferroviaria con prezzi non eccessivi. Il centro è raggiungibile a piedi ma in tarda serata d'estate non è molto vivo se non qualche locale. Unici posti in cui cenare a tarda sera solo i kebab. Stanza piccolina (da 4) ma accettabile e ottima accoglienza.

Disliked: dovrebbero avere delle convenzioni sui parcheggi e disponibilità della cucina fino a tardi, almeno quella fai da te.

Liked: lovely and helpful staff.

Disliked: it was quite pricey though, considering no breakfast included and you need to pay for stuff like towel, lockers... no sure if there was internet connection. staff should provide information regarding these even if not asked.

Liked: A lovely building with refurbished interiors and renewed, cozy, functional rooms. The facilities are excellent as well as the friendliness of the staff, and there's plenty of useful extra services on request. Special mention for the café and the bay window room.

Disliked: The shower isn't ensuite, ans it's a bit small and bothersome to use.

Liked: This place has just been refurbished and is super clean, bright and happy. Rooms have lockers big enough for big bags, and each bed has a power socket and light.

Disliked: Breakfast was a bit expensive £4 ($8AUD) but was very filling. It's also a 15 minute walk into town which is fine but just remember taxis late at night cost a bit here!

21 April 2013

Liked: The location is good. It close to the trainstation and 15 min walk from the old center of Cambridge.

Disliked: I visted different hostels before and the YHC is the most expencive and very simple. For one night you pay 26 euro's and therefor you got a bed and not even breakfast. It's the only hostel in Cambridge and a B&B is more expensive so are no alternetives.

Liked: It was basic yet clean. Friendly staff. Great coffee in the morning. Located near to the city centre. Room was quiet.

Disliked: Not enough vegetarian options in the cooked breakfast to give value for money. However, there was a good selection of cold breakfast. A wholemeal/brown bread option would have been good too.

Liked: They let me keep my stuff in the luggage room before check-in time. This was very convenient. The lady (Georgina) at the daytime reception was very polite and friendly.

Disliked: There are no lockers in the bedrooms, only pay-for lockers which you have to pay for each time you open them. No bed-side tables or reading-lamps either. The lady at the night reception was quite patronising. I work in a hostel too and I would not patronise my clients in such a way - I would not keep my job for long!
