Have never written anything on trip advisor before, but with how rude and arrogant the staff were I wouldn't recommend anyone staying at this place, beds were awful, not clean at all. How they think it's acceptable to have one shower for a whole floor when we alone had 16 people in one room is a joke. Toilets were not...

I had a wonderful time at this hostel. The location was awesome! The rooms are quite large and adequate. I was spoiled by the quietness and lack of roommates on the last two nights. They were working on the showers on my level, and on my last morning all showers were not in service and I had to walk to...

I stayed here and was greeted by THE rudest sarcastic man. If you don't want to work with people I reccomend you don't work in a hostel. He couldn't tell us any information like if we could pay for a later check out time and just wanted to repeat himself like a Broken record. But at least he felt like...

So this place would be okay if you were just going for a one night stay. Unfortunately i found the staff very rude and unhelpful. The room we stayed in was very small and i came in to see two people on my bed. Which was down to the organization of the hostel which isn't ideal but luckly i didn't...

Love this place. If you're lucky you might be able to grab a bed but if you don't it's stull a fun and enjoyable place to start a night out in Cardiff. Staff are lovely and there's a great atmosphere.

The place itself is lovely, it has character, it's location is definitely wonderful since it's at the city centre near the Cardiff Castle and many Arcades and Markets, also for Rugby fans near the Millennium Stadium. As regards the room I've stayed in, it was truly cold and it's view is directly into the main street so during the weekends...

Stayed there recently with a group of old friends. Great Bunkhouse in a central location. Friendly staff & a quirky little bar. Breakfast option was fine & covered our need. Bunk room was compact but didn’t cause us any problems – with a locker to store valuables. Wifi in bar area. Would certainly consider again for a budget weekend away.

isited here last weekend, upon checking in we were greeted by a not so friendly chap with a SIA door badge, straight away wheeling off rules and codes of conducts etc, no issues with this as it's a city centre venue so we assumed they must deal with their fair share of boustrous groups. As a group ourselves of potential...

Now as much as this place is excellently located, we were quite a well behaved stag do and had to be to stay here. That said we aren't a rowdy bunch of lads so it wasn't out of place for us to be any different. The rooms were small but ideal for a bunch of lads. The facilities were OK...
