Liked: The hostel was better equipped than I expected. The rooms and facilities were very modern and well maintained, and the kitchen had all the equipment we needed.

Disliked: The kitchen was very cramped and small, though that was unavoidable. It would have been better if the kitchen was bigger. Also, there was no WiFi in the rooms, only in the common areas.

Liked: it's very close to the train station, you need the pass to access pretty much everywhere, so feeling quite safe. it's newly renovated has a really cool kitchen, bed is very comfy, you can bring your own lock to lock up your stuff. they also have locker in the luggage room but you need to pay £1 for the extra security if you dont want to leave your bag in the luggage room alone. they have a open area - bar, where you can order food. also a TV lounge where you can chill, watch TV or read book.

Disliked: the walls are very thin, people will slam the doors midnight, i got woken up twice... unfortunately you are not permitted to use the kitchen after checkout... can only sit in the front area in the bar. it's kinda akward to eat ur own food in a bar. it is a bit far from the city centre, 15-20mins by foot. i guess since cambridge is quite small so the distance enlarge itself. it's not that bad at the end of the day!

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!

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.
