I booked this hostel as me and my friends wanted to go out for the weekend we were there and that because it was in the centre of Cardiff we thought it was perfect. I booked for an 7 bedroom as we knew we would want to get ready together and drink. Well when I booked the room it showed... More

Me and my 6 friends were planning on staying here for my 21st as soon as we walked through the door the manger was rude and unhelpful. We booked a 7 bed room and he argued to say they didn't have one even though we booked it on their website.He then told us we had the 18 bed room in... More

The location is simply fantastic. Right where you want to be. Just 5 minutes away from the train station (so no rush to catch a train or a bus) and 25 mins walk to the bay which is the best attraction near by and only 5 minutes to Cardiff Castle. There is MCD literally in front of the hostel, tesco... More

We had the largest room (25 beds) for a stag party. We got there and who I can assume to be the manager was ridiculously condescending and had a terrible attitude. As mentioned we were on a stag doo and the stag was dressed as the only get in the village so nothing specifically offensive. He was made to get... More

I stayed for one night in the largest, 25 bed male dorm. The beds are comfortable and clean, as are the bathrooms. Though, 2 showers and 2 toilets for 25 people is a bit of a stretch so plan effectively. The staff were clear that breakfast was basic; just cereal, toast, tea and coffee but that's fine. You have to... More

From the first minute we arrived the staff were very rude and not very helpful. Arrival - Treated Very Badly On Arrival we were greeted by a very rude gentlemen on reception who asked for our group leader to approach the desk and the rest of the group to wait outside on the street in the rain, we politely declined....

Loses points immediately for a few reasons. 1) Only having wifi in the bar area. Thankfully, the place was practically deserted during my stay, because I can't imagine anything more unappealing than having to sit in the middle of a busy bar just to check my Facebook or attempt to Skype home. 2) When I arrived, I was told I...

The Bunk House hostel is well located in the heart of Cardiff, approximately two minutes walk from both Millennium Stadium and Cardiff Castle. The rooms are basic as is the breakfast but there was nothing unpleasant about my stay. Recommended if you're on a budget and want somewhere to stay.

While this definitely wasn't my worst hostel stay, I didn't exactly enjoy it either. The staff when we checked in was disinterested and a bit rude, and the hallway to the rooms smelled like sewage. Thankfully this didn't extend into the rooms. The beds were pre made for us and smelt freshly laundered, so I trusted that it was safe,... More
