Although it's located in one of main streets, in pedestrian zone, it's extremely quite, so one can get good night sleep. The common room is on the basement. Some toiletts didn't have soap...

Room was clean, bit on the basic side with only four lockers for six occupants, one chair and a table. Two triple bunk beds, comfortable enough but limited headroom of course, probably not ideal for the less agile. Plenty of power sockets around the walls,...More

Awful place to stay. Completely unrecognisable from the pictures, I have spent a long time trying to figure out where the photos were taken as it looks nothing like them. If I took photos, you would see almost nothing. Everything is dark, all lights are...More

Apart from it being in a fantastic location...I personally found it a little over priced. The room we stayed in was small...8 grown men shoved in a single sized room with bunk beds so cramped..getting out of was a workout. Bedrooms were dirty with previous...More

I absolutely love the bunkhouse. It's my favourite place to take friends who are visiting me from away. It's so cosy with all the beds and really unique. The Nutella hot chocolates are to die for. Coolest little spot in Cardiff.

Part of Bunkhouse's unique charm is the interior decor: the seating is unconventional, including even single beds on which to sit. This isn't for everyone, but it's an interesting place to visit at least once. The menu has a variety of unusual milkshake flavours, including...More
