Right in the Heart of Cardiff this place is the ideal location. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room/facilities were clean, I was fortunate enough to stay two nights in early week so no issues with crowding. This place is 5 min walk from Cardiff station, and is easily accessible to the local attractions etc. My only complaint would be... More

Booked to stay here for two nights but could only manage the one. Stayed in an 8 bed room consisting of 2 triple bunks and a double bunk. The distance between each bunk level is very small so there is no room to sit up and makes relaxing in the room or socialising, unless laying down, very difficult. The room... More

This was a fantastic place to stay! Great location, close to the Castle and the Museum. I get to meet some amazing people from all over the world! If I get to go back to Cardiff I will be staying here again!

As regular travellers and seasoned hostel stayers we were all aware of the notion of 'you get what you pay for.' However the Bunkhouse seems to have pumped all of its money into the lovely bar area but that is to the detriment to everywhere else. One bathroom did not have a working light and the other didn't have a... More

Having read some of the previous reviews I was slightly concerned about booking the Bunk House for a stag do last weekend, but decided to give it a go. To comment on a few of the previous reviews we found the staff to be pretty pleasant, we were advised as a group of 25 lads to not go into the... More

We stayed here as a large group of friends and couldn't have asked for much more. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hostel is fairly trendy with good facilities. The location is the best part given it's dead centre of Cardiff on the high street, a short walk from the station. The staff could have been a little... More

We had the 16 bed room for the weekend, the rooms were clean. The hostel itself was fairly nice, the bar was lovely and had a great feel to it. Toilets were cleaned several times a day which was nice, the bathrooms could be better. It did seem a bit strange that the beds were made after the first night,... More

I stayed in a large all-female dorm, and despite the large number of people there, the lights were off and everyone was quite by a reasonable time (even on the weekend). There was some noise from the street, however, it wasn't too bad, and it was a good trade for the excellent location. I found the bed to be pretty... More

Thank you for your constructive review of our Hostel. We're pleased that you had a comfortable stay, and the noise was at least tolerable even on a busy night in Cardiff! As Bunkhouse is located right in the heart of the Centre, and on one of the most lively streets in town, a little noise is expected nonetheless. We're happy... More

We arrived in a group of seven, a touring band. Pre booked a room, displayed our seven ID and were told one of them was unacceptable although the same ID was used to enter the UK and is a national identity card. We were told one of our party would have to pretty much sleep on the street , even... More

I got the middle bunk, which meant I was in prime position to hear a blow-job taking place one foot from my head and also witness some stealthy ninja masturbating in the corner bed while he looked on. The cookie-flavoured cereal at breakfast was good though.

Hey there Rachel We are very sorry about your experience at Bunkhouse. This sort of behaviour is not usual and is definitely not tolerated. If you had come to reception and made a complaint, something could have been done at the time which would have made your stay a more comfortable one. We have a 24 hour reception for this... More
