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!

    Stayed as part of a recent stag do in Cardiff. Perfect location for a five min walk to the city centre pubs. Room was ideal. The bar area was great for having a few drinks while waiting on everyone arriving. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone on a group trip.

    Great place for a few nights but that’s about it. Doesn’t have a lot of atmosphere except in the bar. A lot of older men staying there so as a solo female traveller I was a bit uncomfortable but overall felt safe. It was a present enough place. Beds very uncomfortable but lots of space in the rooms. Free breakfast if you book on their website.

    Nice place. Right across from the national ruby stadium. Staff was wonderful. I would recommend it on the staff alone. Cheap beer and mix drinks. Bar floor could use a little work. So could the entrance tile chipped up. Trip hazard. All and all. I would stay there again.

    The window that needed to stay open to keep the room cool was full of large spiders which was not fun. The location was great for walking around Cardiff.

    Staff member at reception was quite rude when checking me in. 4 bed dorm I was staying in was small and had nowhere to store luggage. The door to the dorm also didn’t close unless you force it which is not great security. Bathrooms aren’t well lit and the push button system used in the showers to turn on the water is stupid! Bed was also uncomfortable... could feel the springs poking through the mattress. Overall not a great experience!

    The 4 bed dorm is very small without any space for lagguage. Restroom is only one for all the people, small, dirty and far away from the dorms. Beds are very unconfortable. Some people from stuff are really kind and helpful, others just don't care. Live music and pub is available on weekends that can be fun, If the music is OK.

    There was a pair of gross old looking male undies in the shared bathroom for the duration of my stay. This was beyond gross as i had to see them everytime i went in there... they looked old and worn very messed up. There was kids and old people staying here. A woman took up the whole kitchen and all the facilities in the kitchen for the whole night making meals for all the kids staying there.. it was weird. A kid also vomited into the hand towel... wont stay here again, nicer hostels in cardiff

    Pros: - The location with regards to accessing the city centres was good. - The open mic night on Wed eve was enjoyable and you got to meet locals. - Staff were friendly. Cons: - Worst night sleep ever / you could feel every spring in the mattress (super uncomfortable, I ended up sleeping on jumpers to try and pad it out). - The location was in a bit of an undesirable area. - There were no lockers for your stuff. - Hole in the floor boards a cm away from our bunk bed leg.
