Great place, good atmosphere, bar cranks everynight but it's still quiet enough if you want to an early night you wont hear it (I was in room 3). Overall awesome hostel!

Excellent location, just a quick walk from the castle, shops, restaurants, bars. The hostel itself has a very beautiful and quaint lounge/bar area, the staff are kind and helpful. Not overly great rooms or bathrooms but they're clean and bunk bed styles, the only problem was someone had taken my assigned bed but that wasn't to the fault of the staff. Overall, I would say this is an excellent hostel and I'm very glad to have stayed here.

The bar is nicely decorated and it's quite cool. At the weekend, it gets very busy and lively with local people going there for drinks. You can't use the internet in the rooms but only in the bar. Good access and you can easily charge your batteries in the bar. In the bathroom, the problem is there are no hangers to put your clothes and the water is not always warm enough. The location is excellent, near bars, restaurants, city supermarkets, the castle,king's way, the train station...

We stayed two nights and loved our time! We arrived by bus and found the hostel very easy to get to. It was also in a great location. We walked to everything we wanted to see and to get anywhere we needed. The décor is so cute, it has a really homey vibe and we actually enjoyed being in the common area. For anyone staying in Cardiff I would highly recommend this hostel!!

The heat in the room was almost unbearable when trying to sleep. I kept waking up during the night covered in sweat. The lights in the bathroom turn off if there's no movement so when you're having a shower you're sometimes left in the dark. The showers are a press button so you have to keep pressing it to allow water to come out. The staff were great and very helpful.

The hostel is very clean and tidy. The stuff is very friendly. Nice location in town centre. But it's a bit noisy as there are night clubs nearby.

Wif is only available in the bar which can get annoying at night time. Great if you only want a bed to sleep in and a average breakfast, but at least its free.

The staff at Bunkhouse were really helpful and went out of their way to provide information on nice things to do in Cardiff. The hostel itself has a really cute set up and is really cosy. The location is perfect, right in the centre of town.

Probably my favourite hostel, the staff are so kind and helpful and make the best Nutella hot chocolates!!! The bar downstairs is amazing, really cool hang out spot. It was clean, beds were comfortable and sturdy and the location is amazing. Might be a bit loud at night due to it being on a main street but it's quite funny to watch from the window some of the crazy drunk people stumbling home. Saw someone complaining about the showers in the girls dorm but there are closed showers down the hall!

Great atmosphere, really clean and staff are great. One of the bar staff girls wasn't very friendly when we asked about the drinks on tap but oh well.

The website says they have wifi and luggage room, but both are lies. The wifi is a heineken free wifi that only works at the bar.

We were not informed of all the rules when we arrived, they seemed odd from my experience in hostels. Would have appreciated a heads up! Otherwise, clean place, nice atmosphere and friendly staff.

this hostel has most things right, but there are some needed improvements. the basement "kitchen" and common room is dark and dank. no one uses it. Room 3 has a triple bunk and two doubles. the triples are too tight and should cost a couple of pounds less. the rooms, 3 at least, are too crowded and have no hooks for wet jackets or a towel. why do the toilets require a card key to enter? good: the bar/common area is really cool, but the drinks are way overpriced compared to nearby pubs.

Was a really cool little hostel, welcoming and colorful and the free breakfast was good. The facilities let it down, just a microwave as far as I could tell and you had to eat downstairs. Also the shower was small and changing space very limited.

This hostel was very cool, there was a great atmosphere downstairs which is decorated with beds, couches, fairy lights, candles etc, plus there's a bar. Lovely location on a street with heaps of bars and cafés and close to sights such as Cardiff castle. I definitely recommend staying here!

I really liked bunkhouse. The location is excellent, staff nice, room large and clean. Downstairs has a nice vibe, cute decor and nice place to have a drink. Close to bus stop too, easy walk.

It felt a bit weird the first night that the hostel was kind of empty, but the bar was full of non hostel people. But all in all it worked out fine.

The location is perfect as it is close to bus and train stations and the main touristic points. The hostel was nicely decorated and extremelly clean. There is a nice bar on the ground floor and regular breakfast (toast and cereal). On the other hand, the shower is really small with no place to hang your clothes so it is very incovenient (and the water was quite cold as well). The beds are also too low and wifi is only available at the ground floor.
