This place isn't aimed at my age group, and I sort of new that when I booked it. For city centre accommodation, the room is cheap. There must be 30 beds in it, and some are triple bunks. All these people have to share 2 showers (door broken on one) 2 basins (cold tap broken on one) and 2 bogs... More

Terrible. Well it's a little ridiculous to disallow Santa costumes at christmas time. I was only wearing a Santa hat. There are lots of Christmas decorations inside. Policy of entry states 'No Fancy dress, or anything that is annoying'. If this is the hostel policy i do not recommend this place to anyone in a reasonable state of mind. Terrible.

Overall the place is good. Clean, comfortable and the bar downstairs is a great area to socialise and drink. Locations is also very central. Only reason it's not 4 stars are the bathrooms are a little bit falling apart. Clean, but small, doors of hinges etc. but overall a nice backpackers.

I've been here a fair few times but never to stay, I live in Cardiff but I will go here regularly to the public area downstairs. I love this place. I've been here with my family for a quiet drink, with my best friends for a catch-up over coffee and with my girlfriend just to chill out. For me, it... More

Stayed at the Bunkhouse for three nights, absolutely loved the downstairs bar area and it's vibe, one of my favourite places I've been. The room (6 bed dorm) was basic but the bed was comfortable enough and it wasn't cold in the room. Staff were so lovely, especially Jess and Jason. Nothing was too much of a hassle, and they...

I was in Cardiff just for a day, didn't sleep there, but I was with a pretty heavy backpack and needed to leave it somewhere while I was visting the city. It was sunday morning, the library was closed, the coach station didn't have lockers, and hotels wouldn't accept to keep the bag there, even if I payed. But then... More

I was travelling with a friend and our stay there was the best. We just stayed one night and we really enjoyed it. The big guy in the evening was awsome, always smiling and very helpful. Location could not be better, the price was good (the cheapest we found in the centre) and the breakfast was more than enough to... More

I stayed a full week in the bunkhouse as it was close to everything and good pricing. I have stayed in many hostels before including YHA's but this hostel has really impressed me.

I am a Cardiff resident but I needed a place to stay for two nights that was cheap and cheerful, as I was having maintenance work done in my own home, and after many wonderful day time and night time trips to the Bunkhouse, I decided to stay there. It is in a perfect central location in the heart of... More
