Stayed at the Bunkhouse for three nights, absolutely loved the downstairs bar area and it's vibe, one of my favourite places I've been. The room (6 bed dorm) was basic but the bed was comfortable enough and it wasn't cold in the room. Staff were so lovely, especially Jess and Jason. Nothing was too much of a hassle, and they... More

I was in Cardiff just for a day, didn't sleep there, but I was with a pretty heavy backpack and needed to leave it somewhere while I was visting the city. It was sunday morning, the library was closed, the coach station didn't have lockers, and hotels wouldn't accept to keep the bag there, even if I payed. But then... More

I was travelling with a friend and our stay there was the best. We just stayed one night and we really enjoyed it. The big guy in the evening was awsome, always smiling and very helpful. Location could not be better, the price was good (the cheapest we found in the centre) and the breakfast was more than enough to... 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.

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
