    Nothing

    The property was absolutely in mess and dirt. The stuff of previous guests was left in the shared toilets and bathroom. There was no breakfast as the landlord said when he gave the keys to me. There was a TV in the reception room which its noise was very destructive at least at the room I stayed in. It was meant to be a no-smoking house, but the smell of cigarettes and weed was everywhere.

    I liked the high quality of the wi-fi, and the provided toaster and microwave were helpful in preparing simple meals.

    I would have liked a small desk in my room, and the soundproofing needs improving as you can hear whole conversations/televisions from other rooms in the room I stayed in.

    I've been traveling Europe off and on for 4 years, Sean is the best, most interesting, and personable manager met. Not only is Sean extremely helpful, he is honest and accurate. I'd hire him immediately. Cleaning lady was extremely nice and efficient too. Snacks, nice shower, etc., The Old Spring and The Viking were excellent and close by too. Dr. SSS

    A store and bus stop were very close by, but we preferred to walk to city center each day which gets to be tiring after six days without a bike. But that total 3m trek back and forth was our decision.

    acceptable if you are on a tight budget

    Shower was actually hot in the morning, water pressure was good Cozy enough, radiators were on long enough to get the room to a comfortable temperature in the evening. Easy walk to downtown Cambridge, walkable to Cambridge science park.

    No front desk, nowhere to leave luggage. Had to call to find out how to check in to an un-staffed accommodation. Room so narrow I could hold my arms out and almost touch the left and right walls at the same time. Dingy tablecloth over desk, felt like I needed to wash my hands after touching it. Wooden chair, no sofa or armchair (which wouldn't fit into such a tiny space anyway). TV about the size of a laptop.
