Positive Reviews

Open kitchen concept.

This inn functions on an extremely informal scale. There are no set times for breakfast or sitting arrangements. Instead, guests have direct access to a shared kitchen which can be used at any time of day. The fully-functioning, modern kitchen has everyth

Low cost, no frills.

The extremely affordable price is the most positive feature of this stay. For those looking for a quick night's bed and no extra frills to pay for, this provides a good value.

Convenient location for Cambridge.

The bus stop is just a few yards away from the inn and can quickly take you to the city centre. It is also within walking distance of other public transport, making it convenient for business or tourist travellers.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness is a real issue.

Because the hotel has a shared bathroom space and many open and shared community spaces, cleanliness is an issue. If your inn neighbors don't have your same standards, you'll know right away. Daily and regular cleaning of shared spaces is needed.

The early bird gets the bread.

There is no full English menu option, served by a wait staff, at the restaurant of this inn. Instead, the kitchen area is the stage for a community-sharing of toasts and cereals. Get there early or you could end up with what's left over from early risers.

A basic accommodation.

The basic accommodations border on the sparse and unkempt. Carpets are stained, wallpaper is ripped, and features and furnishings have been well-used to the point of appearing shabby.
