Reviews

Reviews

Rooms were clean and mainly 6 beds or less. Things that need improvement are lockers in rooms need to be directly tied to bed numbers by themselves being numbered and the doors into common areas or hallways need to have springs adjusted as many people found them hard to open and noisy at night.

Me gustaron los espacios comunales (lounge, cocina, patio), no me gustó el sistema que usan con la comida, deshecharon comida etiquetada correctamente y antes de tiempo.

Hi Barbara, Thank you for your review, I'm pleased to hear you enjoyed our communal spaces we have available for guests. I'm sorry to hear you had problems with your food in our self catering kitchen. We only dispose of food that is not labelled or that is labelled past the guests date of departure to ensure we are complying with food safety regulations. I apologise if this was not made clear. Kind regards Holly Reception YHA Cambridge
