Nice hostel! and cute decoration


This place is amazing. I loved it, it was clean tidy and so funky. It was a very comfortable stay. The lockers in the room under the bed are a bit small but enough to for valuables in easily, just not a big bag. The showers and bathrooms are so clean. It is quiet. Which for some people is great but if you're looking to socialise probably not the place.


"Self catering facilities" - do not believe this to be a kitchen; it consists only of a kettle, toaster and microwave. Only a few of the lockers worked, and wi-fi is only available in the bar, and even then it is poor quality- which, if like me, you're tired and wish to watch a movie or research places to go- you don't want to be sitting in a crowded bar. However, in a great location, easy to find, close to everything, and relatively friendly staff.


I had a wonderful stay here, and really enjoyed the staff and the atmosphere of the common room. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The lockers were a bit small (though I could easily fit my valuables in it) and you need to be sure to bring your own lock (or buy one at Boots or something). That is the only down side to this hostel (and it's a really minor one -- unless you want to lock up ALL your stuff, you shouldn't have a problem using the lockers).


The BunkHouse is super funky! In the bar/reception there is so much to look at and a pretty cool vibe, it does close down pretty early which is a bit of a shame - though also understandable as there are some weird people wandering the streets at night. It was a little cold in our room with a bit of a draft coming through the window. The location is great for exploring the city centre & it doesn't take much to make your way down to Cardiff Bay. Overall, would definitely stay here again!


What a cool hostel, awesome decoration, super comfy beds, and soooo clean. The lounge and basement were awesome and perfect location. The only small problems I had were with the showers, as the spray is just set up in a way that my clothes just had to get wet. Also, I arrived downstairs at 8:59 for breakfast, when it ends and they wouldn't serve me. I get that, completely if it was been just like 9:02. But everything was still out. Just not the plates and silverware. Still a great stay. Thanks!


Rude staff that don't give clear instructions and no breakfast provided.

The breakfast room was really sweet and the rooms were clean, but the showers were not ideal and there were not too many. Apart from that everything was alright.


Awesome hostel right in the heart of Cardiff's night life/shopping center. The staff was wonderful and friendly, the pub was quaint and cozy and all the aspects of the hostel were definitely the best I have stayed at.


Jess on the front was always smiling and happy to help. Was not very busy but still a great vibe and the location cannot be beaten for value for money. As for security thy have lock up facilities for your use and you should take normal travel security precautions like anywhere. All in all 10/10 for me
