Nice place in the centre of the city close to trains, buses, supermarkets and bars. A social common area with cheap drinks. The toilets were shut on the floor I was staying for most of the time I was there for maintenance which was a bit frustrating.

Excellent hostel located right in the middle of Cardiff City Centre-beautifully decorated in the bar area, made me feel as though as I was in a dream land, a fusion of a shabby chic bedroom and beach side scene. The dorms were very clean though the the 2 storey bunk beds were a bit daunting. Don't sleep on the top bunk if you're scared of heights-or if you do, be careful not to hit your head on the ceiling (yep, you're that high up!). Dorms could have been improved with bedside lamps/shelves.

Lovely staff, great rooms, brilliant location. A few very trifling problems, but in general a marvellous place. 10% at the bar was the doggie's dangley bits.

The bunkhouse was adorable! The lobby/common space/bar is decorated fantastically and the atmosphere is really warm and inviting. Was easy to meet others and socialize. Also the location was perfect! Right on the main strip. The bathrooms were a little grungier than I like but nothing below average. Great place, would stay again.

Once this hostel has a proper kitchen and lounge for its guests (coming soon apparently) it'll be hard to beat. Lovely quirky little place.

My bunk was very creaky, so only OK for sleep if you're the only one on it

The common room bar area was trendy and fun. The bedroom itself was clean and simple, but nice. The free breakfast in the morning was a nice touch, but it is a short window for service (only open from 7am-9am). On the negative side, the kitchen common room for backpackers was dark and creepy. Even though it is waiting for remodeling, they could have put more lights down there. Showers were annoying because water only came out when you continually pressed a button on the side.

The location was really good, however they advertised as having a kitchen but when we arrived we found out it was 'under renovation'. Instead there was a dark little basement area with a kettle, microwave and dusty plates. Showers were also atrocious, the two on my floor, one with a mouldy ceiling and the other missing a door were unusable. We had to go upstairs to use those ones, meaning only three acceptable female showers in the whole hostel. Bar very expensive for a hostel.

Not the worst hostel, but definitely a few problems: "Kitchen" just has a microwave and a large kettle with hot water - no tap/sink to get water or clean dishes. Only open from 10am to 10pm, otherwise food not allowed into the hostel. No common room except for said kitchen. Only two lockers for every three beds. Showers run cold half the time, most do not have doors, letting water flood the floor. No luggage storage for early check-in. Otherwise not a bad place, but wouldn't recommend.

Great location; large room that didn't feel too cramped despite so many beds. However, only 2 showers for an 18 bed dorm and one had a broken door while the other was very close to flooding after a couple showers in a row. Lots of noise at night but it is on a major street and it was a weekend.

It was my first hostel experience and I really felt like they were looking out for me. I got swopped to a an all female from a mixed dorm and everyone was so nice. The only complaint I would have was that I'm gluten intolerant and there was nothing to eat for breakfast. But the grocery store is just down the street so I didn't starve :) Would recommend this hostel 100% every single time. Can't wait to come back!

Rooms were airy and clean but with limited secure storage.The upstairs lounge/bar is a great space. Unfortunately currently the downstairs lounge/kitchen is uninviting, dark and not a space you want to enter.However you are not allowed to eat warm food in the common bar so I had to go sit alone in the dark (I had been upstairs chatting but was asked to move).This area also closes at 10pm. I felt the hostel had a few too many awkward rules and focused on the public bar rather than hostel guests.

Awesome location. Right in the heart of Cardiff, short walk to everything but the bay. Staff were cool, bar was even cooler, and the rooms were clean. The showers were faulty but nothing too drastic. Would stay again.

Rooms incredibly small. Mould in the shower rooms. Shower screens broken so water goes everywhere. Also had issues with the toilets. I Informed staff that there was no toilet paper in the toilets (one for the entire length of our stay) and seeming keen to get it replaced nothing was done which was extremely dissappointing. Kitchen area was basic but seems to be undergoing renovations soon. Hot chocolates were awesome!

Good location but that's about it. Filthy bathrooms and room had a disgusting smell
