Visited this place for the weekend for my brothers stag party. 13 people attended and loved it. Rooms and showers are just what we wanted, a place to lay our heads. The staff are out of this world, very friendly and helpful. All in all, very good hostel. Would recommend to anyone.

Stayed 2 nights during 6 nations. Definitely the place to be at this time of year. Directly opposite the Millenium stadium and overlooking the Taff. Rooms were basic but good and showers and loos surprisingly clean given the place was full of drunken rugby men! I would stay again in a heartbeat, the staff were all friendly and helpful. If...

The room was comfortable, if a bit basic (which is to be expected), but the mattresses were terrible. Everyone in my room agreed that they had never slept in a worse mattress in their lives (and I stay in hostels a lot). It's definitely time for an upgrade there. The last day of my stay was the day of a... More

I'm not used to staying in shared room hostels but this one turned out to be a good choice, perfect location on the river & just a few minutes walk from town centre, stadium, arena, cinema. Added bonus is its own bar & restaurant downstairs which was welcoming, had a nice pizza & beers with a fellow roomy. Generous buffet... More

The place was clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Well worth the price you pay. They have a fun bar with a pool table and tvs. Plus, free continental breakfast, basic but nice option. No wifi, they say they do but most people couldn't connect. Also, the mattresses were TERRIBLE. They were noisy, uncomfortable, and just crappy in... More

It's located really near the city centre, and is accessible to the usual sightseeing places, like cardiff castle, museums etc. On top of that, the staff were really friendly, and never hesitated to help us with anything we need. One thing to caution though, is that the walls/floors of this hostel are really thin, so you can practically hear anything... More

My partner and I have stayed at NosDa a couple of times - and loved it! First time we were just there as a couple, for a few days, and we felt so welcome - the bar is a *great* place to meet other travellers. I remember two of the staff randomly invited us around for burgers one night too,... More

The location is great and the staff are very nice and can help you with any questions about the city. I went during winter and the only problem was that the room was freezing during the night!!! There is no wofo in the rooms, but they have a nice common area
