Cambridge YHA, is set in a beautiful Victorian townhouse. Close to the railway station and two stops from Stanstead airport, the hostel is a 15 minute walk from the centre of Cambridge, with easy access to all the university’s colleges and other famous attractions.

The hostel's facilities include a self-catering kitchen, laundry, evening meals, games room and internet access.

Be inspired by the many outstanding art galleries, and museums many of which can be seen for free at the University grounds. Admiring the architecture gardens and country side along the river cam while punting is a must do before you go. Hire a punt, explore the ancient streets and enjoy the city’s cycle-friendly routes.

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.

overall, it was a great experience staying there, up to the standards of the YHA. my only complain was that the room was so warm. Although Cambridge was a bit windy when we visited, the windows were positioned in the opposite direction of the wind. Not their fault really but at least they could have other ventilation (e.g. electric fans, air conditioning, etc). Also, it's a bit of a walk to the central part of Cambridge university but definitely close to the trian station
