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

We went here for my mate's birthday recently...between a group of us we had to pay for our own dorm but still worked out really cheap. Receptionist was comically stropey as soon as we walked in... but bar seemed nice and overall good value for the money we paid.

We stayed here as part of a hen weekend. Not entirely sure we were the type of group they wanted, particularly as fancy dress was banned in the bar area. The receptionist was less than helpful, which wasn't great. The communal areas however are beautiful and quirky and there is some good outside seating as well. The bedrooms were small... More

We arrived at 7am from a night bus ride and was turned away, which resulted in us hanging out in McDonalds until the hostel would allow us to at least hang out in the common area. We read the reviews of the staff being a bit standoff, we did experience the same thing besides one guy who worked the bar.... More

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
