Property Description

We are one of the smaller hostels in Cardiff. Being family owned and run by a brother and sister team, our Cardiff hostel feels more like you are staying with a local family rather than the usual hostel experience.
The breakfast is second to none and is included in the price of your stay. Our full communal kitchen is perfect to keep your healthy meals (and your wallet) in check. We feel that our budget accommodation in Cardiff city centre is the best stay you will have in the UK. But do not take our word for it - we encourage you to check out our reviews to make sure we are the hostel for you. You will find a treasure of things to do in Cardiff and we look forward to giving you a Welsh welcome.

- Great location 5 minutes walk from buses, trains and attractions.
- Friendly Welsh owners
- Incredible free breakfast
- Walking tour 3 times a week
- The wifi is fast, free and covers every inch of the house View House Rules

    Stayed here for three nights and loved it. Amazing location close to the train station and minutes away from the Castle and city centre. Great staff and rooms and included a wonderful breakfast in the morning. Would definitely stay here again and recommend it!

    This place is very nice. Clean and updated. It's quiet and relaxing, not a party place. It feels like you're staying in someone's home. Great beds, great showers, individual bed outlets, movies on the TV.
