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. The staff are fantastic! Super friendly, helpful and informative! The room are clean and respectable with comfy beds. You stay at a hostel because it is cheap... More

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

All these negative reviews seem to be by people who don't know how hostels work. Great value for your money. Rooms were good, bar was great. Location is awesome. Staff (particularly Jess and Finn) were lovely and helpful. Would stay again.

the entrance and bar is super inviting twinkling with fairy lights and ambient music...rooms crammed to the rafters with beds- no plugs for upper bunks. No tables ,nowhere to put clothes, so much noise, mattresses and bedding super cheap and uncomfortable, unstable bunks.., every time the person on the bottom bunk turned over the bed rocked. Fixtures and fittings not... More

The Hostel was fantastic,staff were really helpful and the location was fab. The female dorm was quaint and had lots of space considering the amount of beds in the room and the on-suite was perfect. P.S the older guy that works their is to die for.

I stayed here for two nights during August and had a lovely time. The lady who's name I forget (Red hair) greeted me on arrival was excellent at pointing out the things I should see in the city. Night shift person, not so much but you win some, you lose some . The rooms are fairly basic but clean and... More

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
