I stayed here two nights. Staff was really kind and the map which I got from the hostel was nice to find place. Toilet and shower booth was always neat and clean. I want to recommend this hostel to anyone who visit Cardiff

Was mostly very nice, some people don't wash up after themselves very well though. Food and facilities excellent, but would be nice to have bath mats and hand towels in the bathrooms. Overall had a lovely stay

Getting in early it was nice that the staff could hold my bag so I could explore before checking. Room had 2 bunk beds and I got a lower one.. The guests make it work so that lights go off when we want and people are considerate. Breakfast was provided and it is a 10 minute walk from transport and shops.

Was greeted by the very friendly owner to one of the best hostels I have stayed at. Perfect location to explore Cardiff, right opposite the millennium stadium. The rooms are very clean and it has the best bathrooms I have seen in an inner city hostel! Fantastic breakfast and free tea and coffee all day, and a meal in the evening for only £1. Definitely recommended and I will be staying again.

Very nice hostel, the bed is comfortable and breakfast is amazing. However, I was sharing a dorm with a woman who stays quite often in this hostel, she sleeps naked and hang around in the room naked in the morning! It was really weird and unpleasant. Beware!!
