The Cambridge Hotel & Backpackers
Lonely Planet review
Comfortable, affordable accommodation in a heritage hotel. En suite rooms have Sky TV, phone and fridge (try for a room at the back if you’re a light sleeper). The backpacker wing has a snug kitchen/lounge, flash bathrooms and dorms with little natural light but sky-high ceilings. The $2 breakfast is a plus.
