A stay at a nice place
I have a great stay at Cambridge during my more than a month vacation. The rent has been affordable for travellers like me who is budget curious. The shower rooms and toilet place are clean. During my stay, there was no day that these were not cleaned. Facilities are good. Just one comment on the dim light at the kitchen area. This hurts our eyes. Anyway, the hotel might have a purpose with that kind of set-up. With regard to the arrangement or settings of the tables, sofa and the tv; it feels uncomfortable for a person who is eating at the table (well, this was just based on my experience) while there are others watching tv. It's as if, while I was eating I had the feeling that the eyes of the audience was on me. :-) Anyway, I still have a comfortable stay though.

Very cheap and accessible!
The place is so affordable and so close with the bus stop! We easily hop in and out of airport bus and very close to cafes! So center in the city.

Mini city break
Spent 3 nights at the Cambridge, all in all a very good hotel although would benefit double glazing as a lot of lat eight street noise. Good value for money, would stay again.

Very good
The hotel environment is pretty good than what I saw from Internet. Staffs are friendly. The only thing not really good was the WiFi only eligible for one hour. Overall very good

Look elsewhere..
Very disappointed with our stay at the Cambridge. Our double room literally smelt horrendously of damp carpets and mould that we had to keep the windows open to air the room, only to find the road was too noisy to keep open at night. It was also very small, with barely enough room to walk around the bed. Appliances in the room (fridge, microwave & kettle) were all battered and had all seen better days. Bathrooms were too far from the room and once found were a hazard as water was constantly all over the floor making it very slippery. Just to top it off we awoke to find police in the corridors for most of the night.. Only redeeming factor was the location, although this would not be enough to make me stay again.

Great location, friendly staff
The best thing about this place is its location, it's right in the heart of the city. All attractions are within the walking distance. It's just about 10 minute walk to Cuba Street, 20 minutes to the waterfront, 10 minutes to mount Victoria. The staff were very friendly. The place were clean, the only thing I didn't like was the bathroom basis were way too tiny. The room was average, quite small and the bunk beds were quite low. I kept hitting my head to the upper bed even though I am a small person. But the room was clean and the bed was quite comfortable.
