I visited for 2 nights in July and the place was generally clean. The Staff a nice and helpful. The place did not reflect the photos the main areas were the hallway with the office, rooms and basement seating area. The site at the time claimed they had parking but the closest car parking is by the station. The basement...

even though we were the last people in our room to check in for the night we were still allocated beds that were already occupied- either through double allocation or people taking our beds over theres, then the staff told us to pick a free one. When we came back from our night out 3 of the 4 beds we...

This hostel attracts dangerous customers, and has poor facilities. I would NOT recommend this hostel to anyone. During my stay, there was a very disturbed man in our dorm, who made frequent violent threats towards ethnic minorities, and harassed several backpackers. I also witnessed other customers being kicked out for such acts as urinating in the hallway, and issues regarding...

Can't believe we were charged over £500 for 2 nights in this dive, 12 people in our room, half the "lockers" don't work, the toilets and showers are miles away, the place stinks, the linen is ancient. My first time in a hostel and probably last, pay a few quid more for a hotel room.

This hostel at first seemed very promising, but soon after I'd come to find that it was more of a headache than I anticipated. If you're just staying for a few days it's fine but don't plan on spending a long time here. I'll start with the positives, location is perfect because it's basically a 3 minute walk from the...

I enjoyed my stay at the Bunk House, staff were approachable & friendly and common area allowed to speak to other guests. The decor is very detailed and quaint and the Nutella hot chocolate is to die for! However, I found the rooms to be a bit cold but it might've been just me as there was a middle aged...

Great hostel right in the city centre and really cheap! Rooms are very secure and clean! Great for groups or solos like myself... I stay here often when I work late in Cardiff and the staff are very friendly!

Firstly the photos show a bright street level bar but what is actually there is a dark dingy basement bar where the pumps don't seem to work. There were 11 of us split over two floors. Avoid room 3 as it doesn't have an openable window and smells like slurry (farmers present verified this fact). We were in room 6....

Arrived late into Cardiff central station and this hostel was just down the street which was ideal. I stayed on a Saturday night and this hostel is right off the Main Street. I was in a back room (room 5) and out of the way of the noise from the bars and clubs but there was a busy road outside...

A group of 5 paid £235 for 1 night and die to the state of the hostel and service we didn't stay. once we'd written in about obtaining a refund we didn't get a reply until I chased it 3 days later, where we were told we wouldn't be receiving any kind of compensation or refund.
