Property Description

Sleep cheap in Cardiff, the Welsh capital
Want to experience the beating heart of Cardiff yet seek a calm, clean and comfortable environment?

NosDa has the best location for a property in the Welsh capital. On the River Taff, NosDa is opposite Wales’ most iconic building, the Millennium Stadium (Cardiff Castle and Cardiff Central Station are just a stone's throw away).

NosDa means 'good night' in Welsh and that is exactly what we are promising. We are the only property on the River Taff with a licensed bar and not only that, NosDa is an established live music venue too. What better place to stay than a typically Welsh property with local bands, Welsh food & drinks, and local artists bringing you closer to the Welsh culture. We regularly organise Open Mic nights & Live Music Events in our main Bar, and all Wales Rugby & Football International games are featured on our big screen. On a match day you can hear the crowd going wild at the Millennium Stadium, that's how close we are!

Even though NosDa is one of the largest properties in Cardiff, it is proud to have the reputation of being friendly and personal with well-travelled international and local staff on hand 24/7.
We have a great communal kitchen and plenty of common space to chill out, watch TV, read a book or catch up on emails. Meet your fellow travellers whilst tasting some of our local ales and ciders!

    The room was clean although rather small, the facilities were great, there’s a bar on the ground floor which was great. Only down side is that’s there’s no lockers in the room but they did have small ones in the communal area. Overall, we would stay here again.

    The staff are nice but they're also busy running the bar and preparing food, so they aren't always available. There are pros and cons to having a pub attached to it. I booked a private room and it was clean and very spacious. I have no complaints about the room itself. I had a nice view over the river. As a hostel it lacks character. There was nothing really wrong with it but nothing worth writing home about either.

    Great staff, location and beers! Hallways were really gross and smelly and fusty. The bathrooms were clean and showers were great. Dorm rooms were small with no air or ceilieng fan etc, so hot! Our mattresses were pretty lumpy, but otherwise for a cheap hostel experience, it got us through the night. And, yeah, the staff were all very nice.

    Location and Staff are the high points about this hostels - but the Hostels doesn't look as good as the pictures and I had a bad experience: people using drugs inside the rooms. I didn't felt safe - actually I slept with my backpack with me - coz the room only had 4 lockers for 6 beds.

    worst night’s sleep I’ve ever had in a hostel. Admittedly this was due in part to the heatwave but was made so much worse by the fact that the room did not have any sort of air conditioning and the windows let in so much light that the room was bright at 4 am. Horrible.

    If you’re looking for a very cheap place to stay for one night only, it’s fine I guess but I wasn’t a big fan of this hostel.

    Would not recommend staying here if you want any sleep. Rooms are too hot and stuffy at night with no fans in rooms. Noise from the bar down stairs is extremely loud, especially since there was a live music event which went past midnight. Noise from people walking in hallways and upstairs travels into rooms and noise from the street can be heard if you have a front facing room. Showers were press button and would scald you each time you restart it. Staff were ok. Not a nice overall atmosphere.
