    Last minute booking, needed a place to stay in Cardiff after the mid week Wales v Hungary game due to terrible train times back to Neath. Bunkhouse was cheap and clean. Brilliant location. Staff were great.

    Unbeatable location, friendly and approachable staff. Only kitchen amenities available to guests are cutlery, bowls/plates, and a mini fridge, but if you’re creative that’s all you need. Free flow tea and coffee a bonus. Beds had small cage lockers underneath which would only lock if you had a very long lock. Bed surprisingly comfortable, and street noise becomes no issue with earplugs. Showers take four button presses before it gets hot, but the pressure is heavenly.

    Everything was great! Staff were incredibly friendly. Location was excellent. Common room was fantastic. The only reason I rated poorly on facilities was due to WiFi only being accessible in the common room (no WiFi in bunk rooms) and the shower situation was really not good.

    The staff at the Bunkhouse were lovely and helpful and I slept pretty well, but it was REALLY cold. I kept my layers on even when hanging out in the common room. The hallways and bathrooms were freezing and the showers left much to be desired. The shower I used couldn't be warmed up because, unless the doors were closed, the water would go onto the floor. I had to be inside and huddled against the wall and until it warmed up. I stayed two nights but showered once as a result.

    Very Good

    Room and toilet had a funny smell. The beds were not comfortable. All facilities could be improved by being regularly cleaned. Didn't look like the bedsheets were changed after each guest.

    Not sure I would stay here again. The rooms were absolutely frigid, there was no heating at all. Also the wifi was not working for me during my entire stay (although some people seemed to connect), and its only available in the lobby and common area. The place itself was a bit dingy and old. The showers were very odd: no temperature control and each time you press the button it only stays on for literally 5 seconds, impossible to clean yourself if you have long hair. Good location, not much else

    The street noise at night is off-the-chart LOUD —nearly impossible to sleep as the street noise music goes on ALL night long. Make that—Unbearable loud music coming from the street! All night long... Breakfast means a bowl of cereal and/or toast, coffee, tea. No eggs, no fruit nothing to cook your own healthy food as there is no oven.

    The location is good, but that’s about it. The room and bathroom had a terrible smell, one toilet was blocked and didn’t look like anyone was going to be fixing it. Getting blasted with cold water isn’t ideal in the showers. The bedding felt, and looked like it had been a while between washes. Wouldn’t be staying here again.
