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

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

Ok, so I'll start with the positives. The Bunkhouse is really close to central station and the centre of town, the decoration is adorable and the breakfast is included in the price. The beds are comfortable and the rooms clean. The front desk staff are helpful and not unpleasant but do look as if they'd rather be elsewhere. The cleaning... More

Best hostel I've ever stayed in. The hostel is right in the centre of the city. This can compromise some things like noise a little at night, but it really didn't bother me much, after all, it's expected with it's location. I am 19, I was staying in the hostel alone but meeting friends and staying for a gig. I... More

I stayed at the Bunkhouse on 24th Jan 15, I am a lady in my 40's and was staying on my own. I arrived mid-afternoon to find a bar with a lovely atmosphere. The gentleman on the desk was very helpful as I had not brought my I.D (which was essential to booking in) but he explained it was not... More

Cardiff was in the good books for me as soon as I arrived. It only took a moment for the locals to notice that I was lost before one very friendly man came straight up to me assisting me with directions to the 'Bunk House', and offering to assist me with my 20kg backpack, (my awful sense of direction hides...

While it is located close to the city centre it is also located in a very shady part of town where I felt very unsafe. The twin private room was so small you could barely open the door without hitting the bed frame. Not to mention there was dirt and dust everywhere and I'm Not sure they even wash the... More

Thankfully this review is not connected to our establishment. I am sorry to hear you have had such a bad experience staying in Cardiff, but this review does not match up to the service that we provide here at Bunkhouse. We are situated on one of the main high streets of Cardiff, which is in no way shady, very easy... More

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

Thank you for your review and for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your stay here at Bunkhouse. It is a more of a backpackers hostel, and we do tend to attract the younger crowd. The all male dorm is the cheapest dorm to stay in which does have 25 beds and is ensuite,... More
