King’s College, Cambridge has unveiled a new look for its Old Garden Hostel building.

The project which started in 2019, includes a full refurbishment and extensions to the north and west elevations as well as the addition of a third floor providing 40 extra bedrooms.

The sympathetic restoration lends an Art Nouveau elegance to the main areas; the existing 30 single bedrooms have also been enhanced with stylish en suite bathrooms bringing the total number of bedrooms on site to 70; perfect for conferences and events in the College’s vacation periods.

With the added advantage of access through the historic Fellows’ Garden, guests can also enjoy a serene walk through one of Cambridge’s most beautiful settings to reach the accommodation.
