The bunkhouse is in a great location, right in the city! Could not have asked for a better location for the shops and restaurants. The downstairs and common room is great, it has a bar and lots of room to socialise. The decoration is unique, lots of decorations on the ceilings and unusual furnishings. The rooms were quite small and... More

Under18 strictly not allow, mean you could not travel with family with kid. Been rejected to check in due to kid travel together. Only shown once confirmation sent, not at the booking pages?? Noisy place. Also, everyone have key wrist to wear, every time enter the door need to show, felt like a prisoner. Staff, unhelpful.

Been here a few times now it's the most chilled out relaxed bar in the world. Trust you will go in here have a few drinks an the atmosphere is out of this world. If no where else you visit in Cardiff you must visit here and drink a pint of cyder sat on a bed. Oh yes you sit... More

This place is not the usual bar. It is so comfortable inside. The interior is very interesting. They have some sofas, beds and antique decoration. They don't sell food thou, so f you want something to bite. you only can get cookies. We got a few ciders and beer. They are fine but I will suggest you to get the... More

Fun, quirky place. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The bar downstairs is fun. My room was overlooking the busy street so if your wanting a quiet night-in there's strip clubs surrounding the place so there's the drunk shenanigans making it hard. - Cardiff is known for accommodating stags and hens nights so people are 'on form'. I'd recommend this... More

5 friends from Bristol booked the bunk house for a catch up and a boozy weekend and what a great place to stay!! The location is just perfect right smack bang in the middle of Cardiff. We had our own room, on level 3 right next door to the girls bathroom and shower. The bathrooms were super clean. The rooms... More

The bar is so welcoming and the staff are all lovely! The rooms are what you would expect for a hostel and they were clean. The bathrooms unfortunately weren't great. There were two showers and only one had a door on it which was hanging off. One of the lights were gone in one of the two toilets as well.... More

Second visit now to the bunk house and it's steadily going down hill, bedroom wise. The bar the downstairs is attentive and welcoming. But the showers are filthy, lights broken in the toilets and doors missing. Room we were in didn't have windows either so was like and oven. Would only stay again if saw some improvements online otherwise may... More
