  • A nice hostel with a nice common area. Wifi is way overpriced. The staff sometimes go walkabout and you have to go find them.

  • Good/necessary Cambridge has stopped charging for Internet access; the Internet service is TERRIBLE, even free! They should not even claim to have Internet service at all, it is so bad. Also because of limited space, I had to stay two nights in one room and the third night in a different room. No problem, but the key card didn't work the first time I tried it in the first room, and then the new key card didn't work the first time I tried it at the second room! A technical or staff problem!

  • Very nice hostel but the kitchen is too small for the whole amount of people using it.

  • Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was awesome. Hotel was handy/central to everything and I liked old world style of the hotel.

  • A lovely building with great staff. However, the kitchen/lounge area is rather small. Very noisy the second night with loud music from a floor below.
