Stayed there for 2 nights. Nothing special. No kitchen, no communal area, staff who never smile, Jess needs to quit or learn how to be friendly to people. The bar is alright, new staff hopeless... Only good thing is that it is smack in the middle of cardiff. I wouldn't recommend it!

Didn't stay in the hostel so can't comment on that but I did however go with friends to the bar..... I LOVED it soooooo much one of the best bars I have ever been. The fact it has a bed was just brilliant!! Barmaid was hot also which is always a bonus... Totally recommend to anyone that's never been 😃😃

You basically get what you pay for if you stay here. I stayed at the place for a night...and the place...it..is...cute. But what got me the most was the staff themselves. Nothing major, but they do get agitated quite easily, and slightly rude, when all I wanted was some information (first time in Cardiff). Secondly, the supposed 'storage' space, which... More

First came to this hostel in October 2013 and stayed until Christmas. Having stayed in several others, I keep coming back here. Warm atmosphere as soon as you walk through the door. Value for money - extremely good. Friendliness - priceless. Cleanliness - excels in every aspect. Girls-only Room 4, perfect. Good place to make friends with peoples from all... More

I'd been to the bar area on prevous visits to the city and found it charming and friendly, so decided to give the accommodation a try this time. This is budget accommodation, so was prepared to find it a bit rough and ready. All the basics are in place, with good cleaning arrangements and supplies of essential items. The bed... More

I was hesitant to stay here after reading some of the reviews below, however I was rather surprised. The place was clean and tidy, I didn't expect an 18 bed dorm but it was usually quiet and wasn't full over the weekend anyway. It's in a good location right next to the bus and train stations and centre of Cardiff.... More

After seeing photos and other reviews, I was really looking forward to staying at this hostel. On entry the place looked great, the staff were pleasant and we preceded to get settled. The rooms were average. I started in a 6 bed dorm which had triple bunk beds. They were not very stable and as soon as anybody moves in... More

This is an excellent hostel right in the heart of Cardiff on the main street where all the action is, if you want nightlife that is. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are helpful. Breakfast is cheap and cheerful and the bar is fine. Internet is good and there is plenty of room to move around and... More

We stayed here for the rugby against Wales in April and whilst I can imagine nothing worse than a bunch of Scots descending upon you, we were well behaved and felt we were judged from the off, with the stinking attitude of the staff. The bar was fine, the breakfast was okay. Room was basic. Shame as it is in... More

We was greeted by a miserable tired receptionist, and this is where the rooms keys got handed out my Key card didn't work even after getting it changed. There is one toilet per floor which was always low on toilet paper (brillo pads) the rooms could have done with some sort of drinking water and a window that stayed open... More
