The staff was unbelievble friendly and helpful :) The whole hostel has a great atmosphere with the special decoration! The key system with the bracelet is very good so it's nearly impossible to loose that. But it would be nicer if the coulors are not pink and blue (I hate pink:) ) but maybe green and orange or white. But hold on the system because that is great! Thanks for the great stay!

I had a great stay at Bunkhouse. The staff was super helpful, located in a great place, and one of the coolest designed hostels I've stayed at. I was able to be upgraded to the all-girls hostel no charge and it was quite the treat for someone months into backpacking. Thanks again! Will keep them in mind for my next Cardiff visit.

Overall I enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to a friend and stay there again. Pros: Staff was incredibly friendly, the bar downstairs was actually listed on several Cardiff websites for "top craft beer joints," the location was ace. Cons: Bathroom was in poor shape--no doors on the showers so water got everywhere, automatic light in the bathroom would go off if you were in one of the toilets, bathroom was generally *freezing* in the AM.

This hostel was very clean, and the decor was adorable. The atmosphere was lovely, and it was located right in the city centre. I would stay here again, for sure. When I arrived I was assigned to a 7 bed mixed dorm, but i was the only girl, so the woman at reception switched me to an almost empty female dorm with an ensure just to make sure I was comfortable.

Great location, adequate breakfast, nice hostel :)

The hostel itself is lovely and well situated. It has a quaint and vintage feel to it which makes it different to others I've stayed in so far. The cleanliness of the rooms was a little wanting though, as when we arrived the large bin was full of rubbish and there was a little litter on the beds/floor. However, this was a comparatively minor fault and wouldn't stop me happily staying there again.

Everything was great except the showers, they had mould in the shower heads and when pushing the button the water only ran for 5 seconds. Other than that the hostel rooms were great and the bar downstairs had a great atmosphere and cheap drinks.

I was in a 6-bed girls room and the room was quite tiny for the number of people in there. Also, not a fan of the 3-bed high bunk beds. I felt cramped in all aspects because of this. Otherwise, the facilities were decent, and the bar downstairs was really cute and eclectic as expected. Also, the common area in the theatre section wasn't really in use.

Perfectly situated hosted, right in the center of Cardiff. Staff were very nice, and the atmosphere is very pleasant. Nice bar in the hostel itself. Beware : the bunk beds are 3 levels ones; some people may not like it. Kitchen was a bit creepy, but they are working to improve it and make it a nice place.
