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... More

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. Provided mouldy milk, lockers... More

Paid 20 pounds for a 16 bed all girl dorm with ensuite. The bathroom was unclean and empty of communal necessities. My bed spread had a big hole in it and bed was unmade and screwed up. Only cereal offered at breakfast. The only upsides were the colour choices and the receptionist.

Booked a 7 bed dorm online and called to confirm it was only a 7 bed dorm and not a bigger one as we wanted to be together and without anyone else, arrived to find we were in a 16 bed dorm, the place was dirty and staff were so rude, no bar available and was told no food or... More

Just stayed at the Bunk House while we saw Beyoncé at the Principality stadium. First things first - location. The Bunk House is three minutes walk round the corner from Cardiff Central station and the Principality stadium. Perfect. It is also right on what would seem to be the busy High Street, so perfect for wandering round finding food and... More

Doesn't look anything like the pictures, not gonna lie, possibly because they're having loads of work done. Girl on reception (red hair) very chatty and friendly, couldn't see an issue with hospitality there, same for the girl on the night with the curly hair... Just generally nice people! One shower per floor so get up early if you want one... More

My sister and I booked to stay here last night having travelled from North Wales to see Byonce. On arrival we were allocated beds which were unmade with dirty bedding on them. We went back to reception to tell them and they seemed completely un-interested and just told us to chose a bed each that was made up. So we... More

This is hotel is a backpackers delight, w a few sacrifices. The location is ideal, it is directly in the middle of all the action, in fact You will most likely walk rite by the outside mistaking it for a bar your first time. There are more restaurants and bars then people on these streets. Needless to say we had... More

Called in for a few drinks before Rod Stewart concert, nice relaxing atmosphere with interesting decor, drinks very reasonable for city centre and staff cheerful and polite definately worth a visit. There is a bunk house above for travellers and would make an excellent base for exploring cardiff.
