I stayed here 3 weeks ago, September 17th and I absolutely loved it. Very friendly staff, it's close to the Train Station, it's a 5 minute walk from Cardiff Castle, the sight I wanted to see the most in Cardiff. Also Abi, this is for you, you are not only very friendly but a sweetheart as well. I did want to let you know I got to Edinburgh safe and sound even though I missed the trains due to being sidetracked sightseeing. I will return here the next time I'm in Cardiff :D.
After having been in Cardiff for three weeks, I simply needed somewhere to stay the night before my flight left from LHR. As it was too late to book in London, I decided to book in Cardiff, and chose this hostel. I was very pleased with my decision. The rooms were lovely, the beds fantastic, and the general atmosphere of the place was great. I am glad that I chose Cardiff over London, since I doubt I would have had the same experience for the price I paid. Very impressed with this hostel.
