Great location, bar on site, beds were good, we had a three bed room which was perfect. Clean, towel provided, sink in room shared toilets etc was very good. Stayed up having drinks and meeting people and was good fun. One member of staff seemed quite surly however and that was a little off putting but housekeeping girl was lovely... More

We were a group of four and booked two 2-person rooms for the weekend. Both rooms had their own bathroom facilities, comfortable beds, couches and were very spacious. The rooms were clean and modern. I would say this was one of the best hotels I've stayed in in terms of the standards of the rooms (and this place is marketed... More

Honestly can't fault this place... Bars open til late, good cooked to order and the staff are up for a laugh. Location wise it's brilliant, next to the river so really quiet but over the river you've the city centre so win-win.

Was just here on a (non-boisterous) stag weekend. It was perfect! Easy to get to, safe ample parking, next to the river, a short walk from the city centre. It was clean, tidy, secure, friendly and just had a really great vibe. The rooms were cracking (better than most hotel's i've stayed in standards). I really don't think you could... More

We arrived by bus and this place is really close to the bus "station" (that looks more like a bus stop). It is also close to the castle (the center of the city). You can pretty much walk from there to anywhere. The hostel has a terrace facing the river and the stadium, a quite enjoyable place to smoke a... More

Nice comfy beds and fresh white bedding in clean dorm rooms, friendly and welcoming staff, great breakfast and a full kitchen with help yourself tea and coffee as well as full range personal cooking stuff to make your own meals. Its a lovely setting right next to the river overlooking the Millennium Stadium and only a 10 minute walk into... More

The hostel is pretty shabby. On arrival our first reaction was "we're not staying here!" Fortunately it was a little better in the bar area and we were treated to a very warm welcome and shown the parking, which considering the rather dodgy environs, we were grateful for. I had booked a twin ensuite and we got room 55 on... More

We stayed at the Nos Da hostel for a hen weekend, in two private ensuite rooms. The staff were friendly and helpful, both when booking our stay, and in person. The location is fantastic; right on the river opposite the Millennium Stadium, so it was really central, but away from the Saturday night carnage on St Mary's St! The bar... More
