Could not beat the location of this hostel and the funky bar downstairs. Unfortunately our room was a cramped and there was hardly enough space for myself and my 3 friends let alone 8 people! There were two showers by our room, one had no door and the other sprayed everywhere. Bathroom always had wet floors. Nice staff helped us to get places and recommending places to go.

The best located hostel I have ever stayed. My bedroom was a little small, and they have the 3 level bunk beds, so remember that. The bathroom is awful, not good cleaned, and the toilet is together with the shower, in a room with clear window to the street. So with you like striptease, that may be fun. Also, they need a kitchen, and definitely they need to have the common area open until late, and not just ban guests as midnight.

loved the charming lobby with lots of social seating, the staff at the front desk was so friendly and helpful with providing local information, and the rooms and beds were clean and tidy. the bunks are close quarters, but this was okay by me as I was spending most of my stay in Cardiff out and about, exploring the city.

Bunkhouse is an awesome little hostel. Great location and the bar really makes the place, it has a great vibe. The room i stayed in was small, i wasnt a fan of the 3 tier beds and the facilities could do with a makeover but i would gladly stay again given the chance. Also the inner spring mattress was heaven compared to other hostel beds.

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.
