Downstairs common room is just the associated pub and there isn't another common room as well, so on the drinking nights it's either muck in or sit on your bed. Which isn't easy because the space between the bunks is very small. Apart from that it's a very nice hostel. Very good breakfast.
About the shower and toilets, i have to press the button again and again during my shower, and the sinks in the toilets are too small to use! no wifi in the first floor, free wifi is only available on the ground floor. there is no luggage storage service which is inconvenient for people with lots of luggage. the only good thing about the hostel is that it's close to the bus station and cardiff central rail station.
Place pissed me off. Has a microwave. No kitchen. The bar was filled with locals hittin on the traveling girls. I almost was kicked out because i had food and some wine i was hoping to have to myself downstairs. Yeah that didn't fly. The guy working got all mad, took my wine. Yelled at me for having food in the bar. Which the only way to the "kitchen" was through the bar. Had to eat Burger King because of this joke of a place. Do not come to relax. Lots of screaming outside. No where to relax.
The private space in the basement for the guests is horrible. There is no air flow, it is dark and dingy and the "kitchen" is not a kitchen at all. The main floor and rooms are okay. Some people did not pay attention that the bunks were assigned which caused people to sleep in the wrong beds and caused a commotion at times. The windows provide absolutely no sound proofing so you may as well keep the windows open for air flow. The place is meh and if another was available I would stay there.
