Modern, comfortable hostel. Functional and nice at the same time. You could offer locks and adapters in exchange for a deposit or to rent cheaply, instead of only selling them to the guests.

Hello! Thank you for taking the time to review us. I'm delighted you enjoyed your stay and found the hostel to be comfortable and modern. We keep our prices so low by not covering the cost of locks, towels and breakfast. However, we believe our prices are of great value. I do hope we can welcome you back in the future! Best regards, James- Hostel Manager

I liked the environmentally friendly bit. Great touch. After the first of three nights of my stay (not booked through HI), they changed my bedsheets, which seemed to go against the enviro vibe, but this only happened once. The location wasn't *the absolute best*, but Cambridge still proved to be very easily navigable by foot, so no real complaints.

Have stayed here before the renovations so miss some of the lounge room feel of the old set up but the new room gave a very pleasant nights stay ( have spent 7 weeks staying in hostels on this trip so very sensitive to good & bad)

Positiv: die Mitarbeiter am Empfang Negativ: der Koch, der das Frühstück ausgibt, unfreundlich, man darf nicht nachholen ( was jeden ärgert der sich beim ersten Mal zurückhält), glutenfrei das und das, davon tut er ein bisschen auf den Teller - man kann nicht mehr erbitten und bekommt nicht nochmal und zieht hungrig von dannen Negativ: Belüftung der Zimmer - durch den Kippschlitz am unteren Rand des einen Fensters bekommen 6 Leute nicht genug Luft.
